The Century Theater hosted Edward Albee's The Play About the Baby before it moved to Broadway. Generally, this great little off-Broadway theater near Union Square runs new plays before they move on to bigger (though I can't say better) venues.

The theater is quite small, and not too deep. It's not as small as some off-off-Broadway locations (they usually get smaller as they acquire more "offs"), but you can still be in the back row without needing binoculars. The theater doesn't have upper levels, and that gives it a small chamber atmosphere that's very conducive to experimental productions.

The prices, which again are inversely proportional to the number of "offs" before the word "Broadway," are in the $30 to $40 range. That's quite cheap by New York theater standards.

PROS: Great atmosphere, mid-range prices, near Union Square subway hub
CONS:
