Renting Space

The New 42nd Street Studios is the rehearsal home to many of the country’s most respected commercial and non-profit companies. We primarily rent to the professional performing arts community and have clean, beautiful, column-free studios where all types of live performance are created. Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals and plays, small- to large-sized dance companies, local and regional theater companies, choral and opera groups and even orchestras choose our spaces to rehearse their projects into life. We also have a successful history of renting our spaces for workshops, readings, invited presentations, auditions and special events. The New 42nd Street Studios building is the preferred location for the industry’s top choreographers, directors, performers and producers, and artists working in our facility have said that when you work here, you know “you’ve made it.”

LOCATION

The New 42nd Street Studios is an accessible facility, conveniently located in the heart of the country’s premier entertainment district, Times Square, on its most iconic block and easily reached by public transport. To schedule an appointment for a site visit, please email StudiosInfo@New42.org.

PROFESSIONAL STUDIOS

Our studios are some of the largest and most well-appointed in New York City with an abundance of natural light, and our facility was built from the ground up to create the best possible professional rehearsal environment for the arts industry. We work hard year-round to maintain the highest standards in cleanliness and customer satisfaction, and our staff are highly-trained in administration, production, safety procedures and building maintenance and are always ready to efficiently assist with our renters’ various rehearsal needs.
