Description [edit]
The Alchemist Theatre & Lounge offers a unique, relaxing and comfortable environment to enjoy top-notch local, independent artists.

Affordable theater fees for theater rental and a 100% return of ticket sales to the artist ensures that production companies not only have the potential to make money and profit share with their actors, but also helps ensure that ticket prices remain low enough to "take a chance" on some great performances.

A wide variety of activities find there home at the Alchemist: improv comedy, one-act plays, public domain sci-fi & horror movie nights and poetry readings.

Alchemist Theatre presents: THE KING OF POP

The Alchemist Theatre presents THE SECOND SHOW of the New York Stories trilogy: THE KING OF POP by Eddie Valentine In an unbalanced world made of fact and fiction, the glamorous elite fight to keep the drab in the shadows where they belong. And then a new ruler takes the throne and begins granting superstardom and 15 minutes of fame to the commoners. A semi-factual tale of the art scene of the 60's and 70's in New York City and how it impacted fame, fortunes, social brackets and the very understanding of what art may be. The second play in the NEW YORK STORIES trilogy. A season-long exploration of both the reality and popular perception of the Warhol scene, CBGB, Max's Kansas City, Studio 54, back alleys and bedrooms. Join us for the adventure, excitement, drama and fun as The Alchemist Theatre transforms for each show and immerses audiences deep into the NYC "scene" of the 60's and 70's.

Alchemist Theatre presents: THE SCENE YOU NEED

The Alchemist Theatre presents the third show of the New York Stories trilogy: THE SCENE YOU NEED by Neil Monk Act 1: Meet a motley group of characters from punk rockers to politicians. From veterans to go-go dancers. All are lost, lonely and scared in their own ways. Act 2: Flocks are gathered and grace is found. When you can't find a lover and friends have faded to grey... When you're discarded on an island of misfits... When you're too tough to die... Slip on your disco shoes or pick up a spray can. Shout in a punk band or have sex in the subway. Find your scene. Make it real. The final play in the NEW YORK STORIES trilogy. A season-long exploration of both the reality and popular perception of the Warhol scene, CBGB, Max's Kansas City, Studio 54, back alleys and bedrooms. Join us for the adventure, excitement, drama and fun as The Alchemist Theatre transforms for each show and immerses audiences deep into the NYC "scene" of the 60's and 70's.
