Westside Theatre, New York City

4.5
The Westside Theatre is an off-Broadway performance space at 407 West 43rd Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The building houses two auditoriums: the Upstairs Theatre, which seats 270, and the Downstairs Theatre, which features a thrust stage and has a seating capacity of 249. Formerly known as the Chelsea Theatre Center and the Westside Arts Theatre, the building was renovated in 1991.

The Romanesque Revival style building, designed by Henry Franklin Kilburn, was constructed in 1890 for the Second German Baptist Church, which it housed until the 1960s. The site was then occupied by various nightclubs until its establishment as a theatre in 1976.

  • A very nice off Broadway theater that can hold easily 200 - 300 people. The seats were a little tight but the theater is in great condition. Upon entering, you need to walk up to the second or third floor to get to your seats. A good view from any seat. There's no aerial obstruction either. My friend got tickets to see Daniel's Husband and it was an excellent show. The set was simple and easy on the eyes. As were the actors. Really enjoyed coming here.
  • The theater is tiny and comfortable. Love the atmosphere. We saw the Other Josh Cohen and it was funny. Awesome
