This conversation happened regarding the Theatresource space at 177 MacDougal Street.
We: The space is fallow. The landlord is apparently using the old rehearsal room as an office but otherwise the place is empty.
They: I [heard a rumor] that the landlord was [recently] calling around to some producers to see if they wanted to rent the space.
That's funny, because when I asked about that before Theatresource closed they said no.
Well, apparently they changed their minds.
It's worth doing. I mean, it is, after all, a theater.
It would not be easy to make that a theater again.
They took down the grid.
Putting up a new grid isn't that hard. That grid went up in one day.
I'm just saying it isn't a turn-key operation.
It wasn't a turn-key operation even when we were producing plays there.
