Manhattan – Lower East Side
85 E 4th St between Bowery and Second Ave
Part of the gaggle of theaters on East 4th Street, the 99-seat Kraine is part of the loosely affiliated Horse Trade theaters (which also include the Red Room and UNDER St. Marks), where irreverent, independent work bubbles incessantly. The venue--a sweet proscenium with creaky, back-crippling red velvet seats--can also be rented, so it's difficult to pin the spot down in terms of a unified aesthetic.
