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.
