St. Ann’s Warehouse fills a vital niche in New York City’s cultural landscape as an artistic home and destination for the American avant-garde, international companies of distinction, and talented, emerging artists ready to work on a grand scale. St. Ann’s signature flexible, open space allows artists to stretch, both literally and imaginatively, enabling them to approach work with unfettered creativity, knowing that the theater can be adapted in multiple configurations to suit their needs.
Developing the Tobacco Warehouse as St. Ann’s first permanent home has added countless opportunities for year-round programming to complement the recreational aspects of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Preserving the original brick walls and the scenic archways provides multiple points of access for community members from across the street and visitors from around the world to come together to explore new possibilities for expression and to enrich local life for decades to come. The new St. Ann’s Warehouse opened in the Fall of 2015.
