Atlantic sees coin, new digs

Contributions include $500,000 from City Council

The Atlantic Theater Company gets some new digs next year thanks in part to a $1 million grant from the City of New York.

The company’s second stage, administrative offices and acting school will all relocate in January or early February to three newly renovated floors in the Port Authority building on Eighth Avenue between 15th and 16th streets.

The Atlantic’s current offices are nearby on West 16th Street. The 20-year-old Off Broadway company will continue to mount its mainstage shows in a former church on West 20th Street. (Two Harold Pinter one-acts, “Celebration” and “The Room,” begin previews there today.)

The 25,000 square feet at the new address will include a 99-seat black box with a dedicated street entrance, a scenic shop and nine rehearsal and classroom studios.

City contributions amounted to $500,000 from the City Council, matched by another half million from the mayor’s office. Total cost for the renovations will come to $4 million, part of a $7 million capital campaign that will run through the end of 2007.
