Cornelia Street

book by Simon Stephens
music & lyrics by Mark Eitzel
choreography by Hope Boykin
directed by Neil Pepe

Atlantic stage 2

January 20 – March 5, 2023

We are excited to welcome back Tony Award winner Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) for his third collaboration with acclaimed singer/songwriter Mark Eitzel (American Music Club), choreography by two time “Bessie Award” winner Hope Boykin (Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), directed by Tony Award nominee Neil Pepe (American Buffalo).

More Info

In a back street in the West Village, Jacob Towney tries to save the restaurant that has been his home for longer than he can remember and release his daughter to the life he dreams she can have. His place is a home for the odd ghosts of the village. It is out of place and out of time and running out of luck. 

Cornelia Street runs 2 hours and 25 minutes including one 10 minute intermission.

Please note: This production contains haze/fog.


“An affectionate elegy to a Greenwich Village restaurant. Supple performers!”

Alexis Soloski, THE NEW YORK TIMES


“Mark Eitzel’s score is Michelin-worthy! He is a master lyricist. Norbert Leo Butz slices and dices like a pro. Small, intimate & heartfelt!”

robert hofler, ThE wrap


“Simon Stephens’ book brings out the best in the characters- namely compassion, loyalty, and above all, love.”

Carol rocamora, ThEater Pizzazz


“The choreography, by former Alvin Ailey standout dancer Hope Boykin, is playful & appropriate. Each actor moves to their own groove, from a sweet shuffle to an elegant twist.”

Mark rifkin, This Week In New York

“Under Mr. Pepe’s characteristically vigorous guidance, the actors make the members of this community vivid & endearing!”

“Musical theater fans will want to make their way to Atlantic Theater Company for a bevy of formidable talents & terrific performances! The songs are lovely, displaying the composer’s ample gifts for melody. And they’re beautifully orchestrated, with the small onstage band featuring such instruments as harp, tuba, and trombone.”

Frank Scheck, New York Stage Review


“A tribute to a much-loved, crazy-making city and human survival within it against the odds.”

Tim Teeman, Daily Beast
