From early development to opening night, New 42 Studios welcomes the season’s biggest musicals and plays, as well as numerous nonprofit performing arts companies.

At once dynamic and communal, New 42 Studios, including  The Duke on 42nd Street , is designed for artists to explore, experiment and develop their craft.

Since its opening in 2000…

  • Over 1,000 nonprofit dance, theater and music companies have rehearsed here
  • Over 800 Broadway shows have started their journeys in the Studios
  • Over 200 companies have performed on stage at The Duke on 42nd Street

For those who rehearse and work here, stepping through the doors of the New 42 Studios means stepping into an ecosystem designed for and devoted to performing artists and the spells they cast.
