The theater, the fabulous staff, and the production crew are nothing short of AWESOME! I was blessed to see Chisa Hutchinson's wonderful play, "Dead and Breathing," directed by Jonathan McCrory! There is phenomenal acting by Lizan Mitchell, and Nikki E. Walker does her character Justice! Since this is the opening production of the 47th Season, I can only believe Sade Lythcott, CEO has more in store! Word of mouth will have the house packed with "Dead and Breathing!"

Multi-story building for event spaces that caters to local community. Close to subway lines and easy to access via public transit, in and of Harlem. Helps to positively represent African-American culture. Staff is helpful, and decor is nice.

I love my neighborhood theatre. The plays are always well done and thoughtful, and I feel like they've made me a more aware neighbor and citizen, particularly the talkbacks which provoke discussion. Keep up the good work, guys!

I haven't been there in years! The venue is always nice and inviting. You feel a peace and calmness when you enter the theatre. I came this time for a tribute to a fantastic brother Sidiki. It was set up so nicely. He was an inspiration and will be missed!

It was an interesting experience; however, the theater needs a big updating.

The facade of the Building almost looked abandoned from a distance; its flags could use a changing since they were very dirty.

I went to the 3rd floor for a Martial Arts Events for Kemetic Masters. The theater pews were old, the stage too...

It appeared to me that everything in the theater could use a makeover.

The show, however, was enlightening and entertaining.

The bathrooms were terrible however. They need severe attention to. So because of these factors; i land this Theater a solid 3 out of 5.

This theater is an important cultural institution in Harlem. Stage plays and community discussions take place here. Barbara Ann Teer was the founder in 1968 during the turbulent times of social unrest. Eventually there will be a new building in it's place with the theater occupying 4 floors. As long as it remains in Harlem!!

The independent film festival held by The Hip Hop Film Festival was simply amazing at this venue. All seats were up close and comfortable. The Q&A part of the festival allowed for up close and personal contact with the actors. All around it was a fabulous event with a meet and greet and wine sip which followed. I will be sure to buy more tickets, early next year.
