The Russian Arts Theater and Studio's New Home


It's Official, We Have a Home!

After being itinerant since our founding, The Russian Arts Theater and Studio is thrilled to announce that we've signed the lease for a permanent home! Beginning June 1st, TRATS will take over nearly 2,000 square feet of space at The Center at West Park, located at W86th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Previously known as McAlpin Hall, this high-ceilinged ballroom space will be renovated into a venue for rehearsals, classes, workshops, events and performances. In addition to serving as a home for repertory theater, the space will also be available to rent to artists at an affordable rate. Please stay tuned for more information!

Lady With a Lapdog With Jokes and a Happy Ending in DC!

On March 14th, Lady With a Lapdog With Jokes and a Happy Ending performed at the Auditorium at Wilson Center to an overfilled house of enthusiastic audience members. TRATS wishes to thank Mr. Matthew Rojansky at the Kennan Institute for sponsoring this performance in Washington D.C.! It was a joy to share the short stories of Anton Chekhov at the foremost institute for Russian studies in the United States, located in the heart of our nation's capital!
