Our Space

NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Lark's Offices, Studios, and Lobby Space remain closed until further notice. The Lark staff is working remotely.

The building The Lark occupies at 311 West 43rd Street, is on the traditional lands of the Lenape People. We pay our respect to the Lenape and all the other Indigenous caretakers of these lands and waters, and to their elders who have lived here, who live here now, who will live here in the future, and who gather with us in storytelling at The Lark. LEARN MORE >

In January 2011 The Lark moved into its new home, in the heart of New York City's theater district, in order to bring programmatic, administrative, and community activities together under one roof.  The space was designed for and by The Lark's community, and is meant to reflect our philosophy of supporting artists in leading 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 deep sense of community.

Renting the Space

Due to our 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 partner organizations that invest in the work of writers who have found a home with us. Therefore, we provide space grants to Lark artists and subsidized rates to partner organizations.
