Mabou Mines at the 122 CC
150 First Avenue, 2nd Floor
New York, New York
Mabou Mines has officially returned home to the 122 Community Center where, for the first time, we have our own fully equipped 99-seat theater, with dressing rooms and a rehearsal studio. We hope you’ll visit us often.
The History of our Home
Since 1978, the Company has been a resident at the 122 Community Center (122 CC), the City-owned former PS 122 in NYC’s East Village. In February 2013, a city-funded four-year renovation of the building commenced. The City of New York, the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Department of Design and Construction have led the extensive renovation of 122 Community Center, that now houses Mabou Mines, The Alliance for Positive Change, Performance Space New York, Painting Space 122 and a fifth tenant to be announced soon. The new design provides Mabou Mines with our own performance space as well as a rehearsal studio, dressing room and office. In addition, the City of New York provided funding for our new theater’s state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video equipment and seating system. For the first time, Mabou Mines has the opportunity to present our own work, and to host emerging and mid-career artists in a variety of new and continuing programs.
