Au Revoir, Cocteau

Although you may have thought the Jean Coctau rep folded already--with its leading players defecting to form their own company, with its production of The Maids shut down by the Genet estate last year, with its ill-conceived partnership with a New Orleans troupe--now it's for real.

The final nail was the rent doubling on that lovely old 1874 Bouwerie Lane space.

Technically, though the company itself claims to live on--as the newly christened "Exchange," renting out of Theatre Row.

And so another Off-Broadway house bites the dust?
