St. Ann’s Warehouse Theater in Dumbo has produced critically-acclaimed, edgy theater and performance art since 2001. Now its future is in doubt.

The theater‘s lease is up and Two Trees is developing the site, near the water and Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo, into condos (of course!). An agreement had been in the works between Two Trees, St. Ann’s and Brooklyn Bridge Park conservancy to move the theater into the Tobacco Warehouse space, across the street.

But according to an article in The New York Times, that deal is off. Community groups who’d protested the deal, saying that a more public process and more public use should get put into play for the lovely, historic Tobacco Warehouse space, won in court.

Now the future, and future location, of St. Ann’s Warehouse, is up in the air.
