Second Stage is a long-running producing organization with a recently redesigned Off-Broadway theater in the heart of the midtown theater distict, and a smaller space (the company's original home) on the Upper West Side. The fare is sometimes a bit racy, but often very approachable...call it quirkiness with an edge. The company sees itself as a 'Second Stage' for plays that don't find an audience on the larger stages, but it's hardly anti-Broadway, and several of its shows have recently made the jump to larger houses across the street.
