Soho Rep will return to its longtime home with a new season that includes new works from Aleshea Harris and Jackie Sibblies Drury.
In September, the company abruptly closed its longtime theater at 46 Walker Street because of previously unknown building restrictions that interfered with a production. However, officials at City Hall intervened to help resolve the issues. (“They are a downtown beacon,” Julie Menin, commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, said in an interview published in April in The New York Times.) Soho Rep has since successfully completed a $500,000 fund-raising campaign to pay for renovations, which are scheduled to be done by this fall.
