Off-Broadway’s New Palace

Dodger Stages is “a gleaming new theater complex” on the edge of the Broadway theater district. It is “one of the most expensive Off Broadway theater projects ever – $23 million – and includes five theaters and a range of amenities not always found in the regions Off Broadway, including ample air-conditioning, big dressing rooms, three bars and – its owners proudly point out – “more women’s bathrooms than you’ll find in any space like this.” The company hopes “the new complex would provide the company with an opportunity not only to produce theater without breaking the bank but also to regain some of the youthful energy of the company’s early days.”
