(BroadwayWorld.com) The Stella Adler Studio of Acting today announced its relocation to 65 Broadway in Lower Manhattan from the Studio’s long-time home at 31 West 27th Street in Chelsea. The move takes place 70 years after the organization was founded by Stella Adler, whose philosophy has guided the Studio since 1949.
In the past seventy years, generations of actors have studied technique with the studio in various Manhattan locations including at New York City Center, 419 Lafayette Street and originally at the New School’s Dramatic Workshop.
As an anchor tenant, the studio will occupy two full floors at 65 Broadway, which is also known as the American Express building. With 30,000 square feet of space, an increase of 10,000 square feet from its previous location, the studio’s new facility includes five black box theaters, nine rehearsal studios, spacious patron waiting areas, dressing rooms and other amenities.
