St. Ann’s Warehouse to Stay in DUMBO

The Times’ “ArtsBeat” blog reports that St. Ann’s Warehouse Theater, which is slated to leave its present location to make way for the Dock Street Project, and which lost its bid to build new space in the Tobacco Warehouse, has signed a lease that will allow it to relocate to 29 Jay Street, also in DUMBO. The story quotes Susan Feldman, St. Ann’s artistic director, as saying the theater will continue to look for “a more permanent home.”

    Excellent news!

    Maybe they can finally drop the first part of their name; they haven’t been at St. Ann’s Church in well over a decade.

    Andrew, there’s a substantial amount of goodwill attached to that name, so they would be foolish to change it. I don’t think St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church has any objection to their use of it.
