☞ SEE: Faison Firehouse Theater

In 2000, after coming upon a Beaux-Arts style firehouse in Harlem, Tony Award-winning Broadway choreographer George Faison saw an opportunity to use his professional success as a way to bring classic culture back into in Harlem. Built over 100 years ago, the limestone firehouse was unusual for its lack of red brick, and Faison would imagine a more peculiar proposal for its future. He purchased the building immediately and since then has started his own namesake theater providing independent theater and a community performance space. Contact by phone to inquire on schedules or bookings. 6 Hancock Place between Manhattan and Morningside Avenue. Subway stop 125th street A,B,C,D. Tel.(212) 531-3185
