Samantha Rudin, a member of The Drama League Theater Center‘s board, helped the 98-year-old arts organization find a new home and stage.
The Drama League inked a 5-year, 4,000-square-foot deal at the Rudin family’s 32 Avenue of the Americas in Tribeca. The space will be a combination of offices and a “black box” theater.
“The Drama League’s West Side lease was running out and they needed to find a new home that could house their offices and a theatre,” Ms. Rudin, a vice president at Rudin Management, said in a prepared statement. “What could be more perfect then moving to an historic state-of-the-art building in the heart of Tribeca’s arts district?”
Rudin’s Tom Keating represented the building owner in an all in-house transaction. The Drama League relocates from 520 Eighth Avenue to the 1.2-million-square-foot tower whose other tenants include Clear Channel Communications, New York University and Cambridge University Press.
