“"the creative line where the sharpest edges are cut"”
For 33 years, St. Ann’s Warehouse has commissioned, produced, and presented a unique and eclectic body of innovative theatre and concert presentations that meet at the intersection of theatre and rock and roll. Since 2000, the organization has helped vitalize the Brooklyn Waterfront in DUMBO, where St. Ann’s Warehouse has become one of New York City’s most important and compelling live performance destinations. The original home of Arts at St. Ann's (now St. Ann’s Warehouse) was the National Historic Landmark Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity on Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights. For twenty-one years, St. Ann’s presented a broad and determinedly eclectic array of concert and theater performances in the church's Gothic Revival sanctuary. In addition, the organization raised approximately $4 million dollars for the building's restoration, including its historic stained glass windows by William Jay Bolton, the first made in America. Through its signature multi-artist concerts and groundbreaking music and theatre collaborations, St. Ann’s continues to celebrate the panoramic traditions of American and world cultures, with forays into a variety of contemporary forms, including new commissions and multi-disciplinary theatrical presentations. Among the many acclaimed St. Ann’s productions include Lou Reed and John Cale’s Songs for Drella; Marianne Faithfull’s Blazing Away and The Seven Deadly Sins; Artistic Director Susan Feldman’s Band in Berlin; Carter Burwell, Charlie Kaufman, and the Coen Brothers’ Theater of the New Ear; The Royal Court Theatre’s4:48 Psychosis; The Wooster Group’s Hamlet, The Emperor Jones, House/Lights, To You, The Birdie!
