TFANA is a great theatre in New York. Easy to get to and they have excellent performances. Saw He Brought Her Heart Back In A Box last week. Intimate space that is truly unique.

TFNA has a great history of hiring some of the top directors in the world to take on challenging scripts with innovation and daring.
This was my first time in their "new" theater in Brooklyn and I loved it. Great intimate house but a sizable stage allowing for visually strong work. Was actually impressed by the professionalism of the ushers too!

Best 'off-Broadway' tickets in town. Shakespeare (-esque) performances from briljant actors in a small, modern theatre.

I came here to see A Doll's House production. The theater is new and easy to get to using public transportation. The theater is a nice venue. Small and intimate. With seating on both sides of the stage. Great production and space. Look forward to future visits to the venue.

The Polonsky theater is an outstanding venue to see a show. Tickets are reasonably price and young people under thirty can purchase a ticket for twenty dollars!m The lobby is modern, clean, bright and has a small snack bar that offers small bites to eat and drinks. There is plenty of seating in the lobby while you wait for the house to open. The restrooms are on the ground floor, are modern, clean and can accommodate everyone. There is also quite a few ushers available to assist and greet you when you enter the lobby. I attended the matinee and noticed the users were very kind and helpful to numerous folks walking with canes or needing assistance. Once inside the theater, I was greatly impressed with its' contemporary feel. Every seat had a great view of the stage from both sides. There was a very tall man in front of me and I could see perfectly over him. The theater feels new and well thought out. Once the play began it was a quite comfortable experience. You could hear every word the actors said. Because the theater is only around 300 seats, you feel very close to the action and emotions of the actors.
I saw two shows, The Father and A Doll's House and really appreciated the companies performances. It was thoughtful to have two shows in rep from rival authors. I found it thought provoking even the next day. Well done Theater for a New Audience. Also, their work is exceptional. You won't be disappointed.
