The Theater at BAX has an intimate atmosphere. Somewhere between a loft
and a black-box, this theater allows audiences and artists to enjoy a creative
dialogue unlike any other in NYC.

We present over 50 performance evenings and matinees each season featuring work by our Artists In Residence (AIR) and Space Grantees, Visitor’s Programs, Guest Curated Performance & Discussion Series, the Upstart Festival, and the work of young artists from our arts education programs and beyond.

Visit the PERFORMANCE SEASON page for the entire 2014/15 Season and STAY TUNED to find out what’s going on now and what’s about to happen at BAX!
