The Theatre at Saint Peter has a special place in American theater—it debuted two of the modern theater’s towering classics: Equus and The Elephant Man in the United States.
Today the Theatre flourishes as the only theater of its kind in Midtown Manhattan. A 175-seat black-box theatre, the Theatre at Saint Peter’s is located at the center of the Church’s Lower Level II. In addition to the main performance space, there is a lobby box office, concession stand, office space, a green room, storage space and a number of full dressing rooms.
Midtown Arts Common maintains an agreement with Saint Peter’s Church to operate the theatre in a not-for-profit manner.
