News   Off-Broadway's Mint Theater Loses Home of 20 Years
 
Off-Broadway's Mint Theater Company is set to lose its longtime performance space and administrative offices on West 43rd St. after 20 years there. The loss is attributed to the "midtown real estate boom" and the building being sold twice in the last three years.

It's current production of Harold Chapin's The New Morality has received a one-week extension and will play its final performance in the theatre Oct. 25. All seats for the final week will be priced at a special $43 in honor of Mint's farewell to 43rd St. The final performance will be followed by a party with the cast and other Mint alumni. Tickets are $100.

"It's not easy to lose your home, especially after more than two decades — but I look forward with relish to the new challenges and opportunities that I am confident the future will bring. I have a full slate of great plays lined up for 2016 and I look forward to bringing them to life and sharing them with audiences," said Mint artistic director Jonathan Bank in a press statement.

Founded in 1992, Mint, an Obie and Drama Desk Award-winning Off-Broadway company dedicated to reviving "neglected plays," has produced over 30 plays. More information and tickets to The New Morality can be purchased at MintTheater or by calling (212) 315-0231.
