Lark flies to new space

Playwright center to move to midtown

The Lark Play Development Center is moving to new digs in January, with a $2.1 million capital campaign facilitating a shift to the theater district from its current offices near Columbus Circle.

Newly redesigned and remodeled space will include offices, two studios (for rehearsals or performances), a lobby and a library. Facility will take up two floors in the building housing the offices of Manhattan Theater Club, Second Stage Theater and the Mint.

A couple of Lark’s alumni playwrights have seen notable success in recent months, with Rajiv Joseph’s “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” set to bow on Broadway in the spring and Katori Hall’s Olivier winner “The Mountaintop” also headed to the Main Stem.

Another Lark-developed project, David Henry Hwang’s “Ching-lish,” will play Chicago’s Goodman Theater this summer in a co-production with Gotham’s Public Theater.
