Rent The Space

Rent The Space

Rattlestick’s performance space, the 224 Waverly Theater, is available at different times throughout the year to be rented for rehearsals, readings and non-theater events. The theater has seventy-nine (79) raked seats in our space on the 2nd Floor of a historic building in the heart of the West Village.

The building’s features include:

  • Central air conditioning, as well as additional heating/cooling units;

  • Two backstage restrooms;

  • Dressing room/Green room space for 7(?) actors.

  • Wide range of light and sound equipment.

The rental clients’ use of the space is overseen by Rattlestick’s Venue Manager. Fireguard certified House Managers, certified COVID Compliance Officers, and a Box Office Manager are also available to facilitate audience-facing performances.


Unfortunately, the 224 Waverly Theater is not currently ADA compliant. There are seventeen (17) steps from the front door up to our small lobby space; theater seating requires at least another one to nine (1-9) steps. There are four steps from the lobby floor to the stage, which is level with the dressing rooms and backstage bathrooms. We do not currently have audience-accessible restrooms.


For more information on theater rentals, including availability and price sheets, please email Nancy Hurvitz ( and mention your interest and a brief description of your needs/the project for which you are hoping to rent the theater.
