It is not easy being a theater company, least of all in a city so very full of performance groups.
You might think that having so much theater around us would make it easier to sustain a company like The Pearl, but sadly that is not true.
The Pearl survived after losing its home at 80 St. Mark’s Place nearly a decade ago. It found space at City Center’s Stage II for a while and landed a neat space when the Signature moved down the block.
This 160-seat space on far west 42nd Street would be its last home.
Thank you to The Pearl Theatre Company for providing 33 seasons of interesting, memorable and well-thought out productions. You will be missed.
