Weekend visitors to Simple Studios may recognize the attendant sitting in the building lobby as me. It's a living!
Also, they're pasting up some sort of angular acoustic padding in the interior rooms, and it's cutting the echo pretty much to zero. I think they're going to hit every room up with that stuff. Progress!
The Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center is available to rent for rehearsals, auditions, and video shoots. We offer spacious, clean rooms with ample seating. We also offer a chromakeyed wall in one of our rooms for video shoots.
Our information and policies are below:
* Regular room rentals are $15/hour. Auditions are $30/hour.
* Requests are processed Monday - Friday, 12 - 6 PM, in the order they were received. They will be processed as soon as possible.
* Rooms are available from 11 AM - 10 PM on Monday - Thursday, 11 AM - 7 PM on Fridays, 12 PM - 6:30 PM on Saturdays, and 12 PM - 9:30 PM on Sundays. Our Training Center classes occupy most of the rooms during these hours, so space availability is limited.
* Renters must pay the full rental fee before entering the room.
* People looking to rent a space in an upcoming month should e-mail by the 25th of the current month. We don't process the upcoming month's rentals until the 25th of the current month. So if you're looking to book for February, you should e-mail on January 25th.
* CANCELLATION POLICY: If you or your group will not be able to use our space, you must provide AT LEAST 48 HOURS NOTICE. You will owe the FULL rental fee if you fail to do this.
Please contact email@example.com with a specific time and date for your rental and we will accommodate you as best we can. We do not book rentals over the phone -- E-MAIL ONLY.
The PIT uses Simple Studios for all of our classes.
The space is clean, pretty, and HUGE, but also (and almost more importantly) the staff is really helpful and friendly.
Plus, they are adding new amenities all the time. They now have mirrors, an upright piano, stage lighting you can dim, personal AC/Heaters in the outside rooms (and space heaters you can request if you like the rooms extra toasty), vending machines, tv/dvd players, etc. etc.
The Players Theatre In The West Village has several studios and great rates for Improvisors if they mention this site. If you book ongoing rehearsals we can gladly work with you on price. We have rooms with pianos for musical improv teams. Plus we have performance spaces (we tend to be very good to our renters) and not only that, some teams are asked to perform monthly shows produced by Shortened Attention Span. Give us a call (212)475-1449 and book now!
