The Brick and its company, The Brick Theater, Inc. were founded
in September of 2002 by Robert Honeywell and Michael Gardner.
Formerly an auto-body shop, a yoga space and various storage
spaces, this brick walled garage was completely refurbished into
a state-of-the-art dance/theater complex, with a large sprung floor
and professional lighting and sound package.
Since then, The Brick has been home to numerous critically
acclaimed original productions, including Jenna is Nuts, Habitat,
In a Strange Room (based on Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying), Fallout
Follies, Assurbanipal Babilla’s Assyrian Monkey Fantasy and
stagings of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, O’Neill’s Beyond the Horizon,
Maria Irene Fornes’ Abingdon Square which Ms. Fornes attended
and the Brooklyn premiere of legendary Polish playwright
Witkiewicz’s The Pragmatists. This summer, The Brick presented
The Hell Festival (as profiled by The New York Times).
The Brick also hosts and produces a monthly variety night,
entitled Brick-a-Brac, which spotlights performers and
artists from the Williamsburg scene, among others.

"The Brick is a promising new venue in Williamsburg.
A red-brick lined room containing modest seating,
it has a casual and comfortable vibe. A spirit of
camaraderie flows among the staff, the performers
and the small but appreciative audience, and the air
is redolent of fresh beginnings."
—Time Out New York
"…this unassuming house is a storefront space in the
modest but thrilling tradition of now-defunct Lower East
Side treasures like Nada and Expanded Arts."
