VISITING THE THEATER


How do I get tickets? Can I change my ticket?

Click here to find the show you want to see, and click the “tickets” button. If you have any other questions about tickets, or prefer to purchase over the phone, please call (646) 343-1586 and select option 1 for box office.

Can I buy tickets in person? When is the box office open?

The box office usually opens 30 minutes before each performance, however this varies from production to production. If there are tickets still available, you can purchase them in person at that time.

Is there a way to see shows at the Connelly for free? Do you use volunteer ushers?

Sometimes! Click here to add your name to our list of ushers. You'll help us out before and after the show, and you'll get in for free. Not all productions at the Connelly user volunteer ushers, so the best way to hear when we need help is to put your name on our list. Please don't call or email us about ushering—we'll reach out when we need you.

I'm looking for the Metropolitan Playhouse? Is it part of the Connelly Theater?

The Metropolitan Playhouse is upstairs from us. We think they are very handsome and like them very much, but are not otherwise affiliated. You can find them here.

I left something in the theater. Did you find it?

Please email us and we'll take a look.

What's the nearest subway?

The F to 2nd Ave. is closest. We're also a relatively short walk from Bleecker Street (6), Broadway-Lafayette (B/D/F/M), Astor Place & 8th St (6/N/R).

Where is the nearest parking?

Street parking is scarce. The nearest parking lot is Edison ParkFast at 167 Essex St. btw Stanton and Houston, about a 6 minute walk [map].

Where do we eat?

Where don't you eat? There are more restaurants in the East Village than there are in some entire cities. Some of our favorites within a two-block radius include:

  • Minca Ramen (E. 5th  btw A & B). Some of the most authentic ramen in NYC.
  • Black Iron Burger (E. 5th btw. A & B). Great burgers and beers.
  • Angelina Café (Ave. A btw 2nd & 3rd). Mediterranean/Moroccan/French Bistro, and one of our regular lunch spots.
  • Two Boots Pizzeria (Ave. A btw 2nd & 3rd). Terrific pizza with a cajun twist, and an NYC staple. Slices or pies.
  • V-Nam Café (1st Ave. btw. 1st & 2nd). Delicious bahn mi sandwiches and other Vietnamese food, very casual.
  • Hub Thai (Ave. A btw. 6th and 7th). Totally decent Thai.

Tell them we sent you. Not because we get anything out of it, but we've always wanted to say that.

Accessibility


Is the theater wheelchair-accessible?

Although the building is unfortunately not ADA-compliant (it was built in 1874), the theater is on ground level and is wheelchair-accessible (no steps). Most productions will be able to make room for patrons in wheelchairs in the front row. We recommend reaching out at least one day in advance to make arrangements. Please email us or call us at (646) 343-1586 and select option 2 to speak to the manager. Please note that although restrooms are accessible without stairs, there are no wide stalls.

Do you offer ASL interpreted performances?

Although this is up to each production individually, we highly encourage it. Check the listings for each show on our home page for ASL interpreted performances. We'll also make announcements via social media.
