Flea Theater

The Flea Theater was originally formed to create "a joyful hell in a small space," a very New York philosophy which will be embedded in the very walls of their new home. The acoustic design keeps the three venues independent for simultaneous performance and responds powerfully to the human voice, yet controls loudness so that audiences are made only as uncomfortable as the Flea wants them to be. A ready-made collection of "found spaces" adds the unique character a new building might take years to develop.
