We are still very excited to be in our new space! In 2008, the Kitchen Theatre Company purchased a building in the West End neighborhood of Ithaca, three blocks from its old home in the Clinton House. A $1.2 million campaign allowed us to renovate the building using green building techniques. The Kitchen celebrated its 20th Anniversary Season, 2010-2011, with a move to this beautiful new space. The space is a 99-seat thrust stage.
