ARO Starts Construction on Flea Theater in Lower Manhattan

20 December, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


Designed by Architecture Research Office (ARO), the Flea Theater has broken ground in Lower Manhattan after outgrowing its current facilities. The performing arts complex—co-founded by actress Sigourney Weaver and her husband, Jim Simpson, in 1995—will feature three theaters, as well as two lobbies, a lobby bar, central ticket office, and technical and administrative offices.

The largest theater, known as the Sam in honor of agent Sam Cohen, will feature up to 120 seats in a flexible 1,850-sq.-ft space. Named for frequent Flea collaborator A.R. (Pete) Gurney, the Pete is an indoor/outdoor theater that seats 72. The lower level will house the Flea’s smallest stage, framed by the building’s original arches from the 18th century.

The Flea is slated for completion in September 2014.
