Spring 2021 SeasonLive Now!
We’re so excited to share our Spring 2021 season with you! Since our founding over one hundred years ago, Abrons has endeavored to support artists who engage with urgent social and civic issues and provide platforms that bring their ideas to broader audiences. We continue the legacy of this work with our Spring 2021 season. As we face the challenges of the months ahead, we see this season as an opportunity to come together, to grieve, to heal, and whenever possible, to laugh.

Help Us Continue to Take Care
For the last few months, the front windows of Abrons Arts Center–which look out onto the busy Grand Street in the heart of the Lower East Side–have been filled with the words “TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.” This simple phrase has been at the center of everything Abrons has done in the last ten months in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through our Food Access Initiative, Artist Community Relief Fund, and our continued commitment to presenting the work forward-thinking artists, we have adapted, restructured, and transformed to meet the needs of our audiences, our artists, and our community.
Studio RentalsOpen Now
We are opening our studios up for rentals! To best meet the needs of the artistic community during this challenging time, we’ve lowered rental rates for all available studios to $10/hour.
As we have adapted to keep our community healthy, we have limited rentals to Studios 1, 2, 3, and G05. Additionally, we ask that all prospective renters read through our new updated guidelines prior to requesting studio space.
