General House Rules:
  • There is no rep plot in place for SubletSeries productions.The grid will be bare at load in time unless otherwise negotiated with production and the previous show. The rep plot file can be used as a reference, and it in place for some events and Co-Op productions.

  • Load in must happen through the backstage double doors/back stairwell, not through the lobby.

  • There is no construction cutting in the spaces. All cutting must happen on the sidewalk and everything should be cleaned and swept after cutting.

  • Productions can screw into the floors but you may not use lags, staples, nails, etc.

  • Walls and floors can be painted with no texture, however, everything must be restored to the HERE-specified paint at load-out. The floor will always require a repaint at load-out.

  • The risers in either space can be reconfigured as desired.

  • Anything that lives in either space must store in the space during the run of your show, please keep this in mind when creating a ground plan.

  • All egress paths, emergency exit sign, etc. must be checked and approved by HERE staff as per NYC Fire Code. All scenic elements must be flame treated.

See Rules page for further details and FAQs.
