Join us for an evening with Robert Lyons, Artistic Director of the two-time OBIE Award-winning Soho Think Tank / Ohio Theatre, as we look back on the Ohio’s extraordinary history, now closing its doors after 29 remarkable years. Lyons and guests will share stories, images, and video from the many productions that helped make this converted Soho factory one of Lower Manhattan’s great cultural centers. The Ohio’s programming continues off-site through the Ohio Interrupted series, but the downtown theatre community has bid adieu to the Ohio’s beloved ceilings, floors, nooks, and crannies.

Robert Lyons is the Artistic Director of the two-time OBIE Award-winning Soho Think Tank / Ohio Theatre, where he has produced, presented, and developed innumerable productions since 1989. Under Robert’s leadership, the Ohio Theatre has become widely recognized as a pillar of the downtown theatre community. He is also a writer/director, whose recent work includes the critically acclaimed Red-Haired Thomas, called “a sweetly fractured fairy tale” by The New York Times, and Doorman’s Double Duty, called “a gem!” by The New York Times.
