Cubiculo (New York, N.Y.)
The Cubiculo records consist primarily of press releases for concerts held at the Cubiculo Theatre between the years 1972 and 1976. The collection also contains some artist information, in the form of programs and fliers, for specific productions. Three folders include material from non-Cubiculo performances. There is very little correspondence, notes, photographs, or other material in this collection.
Founded in 1969 by Philip Meister and Elaine Sulka, the Cubiculo, showcased young artists from across the performing arts spectrum. Located at 414 West 51st Streetin New York City, the Cubiculo Theatre initially was used as an experimental space for their own troupe, the National Shakespeare Company. They also rented out the 75-seat space to dance and music groups, and, in 1972, qualified for a "performing arts presenting and service organizations" grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. Nicknamed "the Cube" by audiences, it was known as an affordable place to produce a show, and existed as aperformance space into the 1990s.
