Village South Theatre

The Village South Theatre was an Off-Broadway theatre in New York City that was active during the 1960s.

Located on Vandam Street in Greenwich Village, the theatre opened in 1962 with the original production of Jean Erdman's award-winning musical play The Coach with the Six Insides which was based upon James Joyce's last novel Finnegans Wake. The following year Edward Albee used profits from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to establish the Playwrights’ Unit at the Village South Theatre; an organization which provided a platform for untested new playwrights to premiere their works.[1]

The theatre closed in 1970, with its last production being Michael Preston Barr and Dion McGregor's musical Who's Happy Now?.
