Our Space

In January 2011 The Lark moved into its new home – designed for and by its community – on West 43rd Street, near Eighth Avenue, in New York City’s theater district in order to bring programmatic, administrative, and community activities together under one roof.  The space was designed to reflect our philosophy of empowering artists to lead their own creative processes. Our 9,300 square-foot, light-filled space includes the Stephen and Joanne Malin Writers Room for quiet research and writing, two flexible studios for rehearsal and performance, a lobby and gallery, and an office suite with kitchen, reception area, and planning room.  This unique laboratory for new play development and inter-institutional collaboration provides a physical hub for artists from New York City and beyond to connect and find a deeper sense of community than ever before.

Renting the Space

Due to our already extensive programming, we do not offer our studios for rent on the open market. The space is designed as a resource for our community of artists, their collaborators and like-minded partner organizations that are investing in the work of the writers who’ve found a home with us. Therefore, we provide space grants to Lark artists and subsidized rates to partner organizations.

For questions regarding the accessibility of our space, contact Accessibility Coordinator Megan McClain at or (212) 246-2676.
