The @Abrons Series Program is a subsidized theater rental program that provides access to our spaces as well as production services at subsidized rates. While @Abrons is not curated, priority is given to shows and events that align with our mission and that are commitment to anti-oppression. For shows, events or artistic projects working to build community projects that are socially or civically inclusive – yet have very small budgets – there is an application for an extra–subsidized rate available below.
Please look at the rental rate sheet to see if you have the budget for a rental, the technical packets for information about which space you would be interested in renting, and if you would like more detail about terms, a sample Letter Of Agreement (LOA) is also below:

Abrons is a home to many different kinds of often non-traditional performances. Since we are actively open to each event’s unique needs, there is no ‘rep’ setup for the spaces with regard to lighting or staging. If you are renting space at Abrons, you can expect to receive the space in a neutral—or empty shell—state and will be expected to return it to that neutral state during the time allotted to you. For more specifics, please send an email to Jon Harper (email address below).

Once you have read through these things, please get in touch with Jon Harper, our Director of Operations, at jharper@henrystreet.org to discuss rental possibilities. Thank you!
