The Actors Playhouse is located in the heart of the West Village, and has over the years been a hub of gay and lesbian theater, as well as unusual, experimental and just plain weird productions. It has hosted such shows as Naked Boys Singing, The Only Thing Worse You Could've Told Me (a one-man play from Dan Butler, known for his over-the-top straight sportscaster on Fraser) and Marijuana-Logues.

The theater is very small, with no more than 150 seats. It's built very comfortably, and though the seating doesn't have an incline, the stage is set high enough - and the place is small enough - that you can see everything from even the farthest row.

The acoustics are superb. I saw several one-man plays there, and those are always very taxing on the actor's throat. But because of the great acoustics of the place, the actors don't have to overextend their voices and can speak comfortably while still being heard everywhere in the audience.

The prices vary from cheap to mid-range depending on the stature of the show. Mostly, they hover in the $10 to $30 range, rarely going higher than that.

PROS: Small and cosy, great acoustics, cheap
CONS:
