Adventures in Theatre Real Estate

The Voice reports this week (scroll down here) that the popular HERE Arts Center downtown--home to a true plethora of diverse arty theatre and performance pieces--has purchased their prized Soho location, which they developed into a very cool artist hub, with performance spaces, galleries, and a small cafe. The theatre you see there can be...eclectic, but always a pleasure to visit.

Watching so much of Soho get taken over by big companies like the Gap, French
Connection, and Starbucks, while so many local businesses have been getting
priced out, has made it essential that "HERE put down permanent roots and
guarantee artists a place to keep creating risky work," says artistic director
and co-founder Kristin Marting.

Here, here.
