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 are a professional rehearsal facility with clean, beautiful, column-free studios where all types of live performance are created. Broadway and Off-Broadway, dance companies, local and regional theaters, 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 readings, work sessions, invited presentations and auditions. The New 42nd Street Studios is the preferred choice for the industry’s top choreographers, directors, performers and producers. Artists working in our facility have said that when you work here, you know “you’ve made it.”

Professional Studios

Our studios are some of the largest and most well-appointed in the business with an abundance of natural light, sprung floors, sound systems and floor-to-ceiling mirrors, creating the best possible professional rehearsal environment in our industry. We work hard year-round to maintain the highest standards in cleanliness and customer satisfaction, and our staff is highly-trained in administration to assist with artists’ various rehearsal needs.
