Dixon Place Moves from Living Room Operation to Real Theatre
In a classic example of life beyond the living room, Dixon Place-founded in 1986 by Ellie Covan in her living room-will celebrate its new home at the Vineyard Theatre. The company's new home, dubbed Dixon Place At Vineyard 26 (309 East 26th Street) will be officially launched with a gala celebration, Wed., Sept. 15, at 6:30 pm at its new digs.

Thirteen years later, it remains one of the only performance art organizations offering a laboratory environment in New York. It is recognized around the world for providing a performance and workshop space for theatre artists from John Leguizamo and Blue Man Group to David Cale, and Reno to name just a few.
