Coffeehouse Chronicles is an educational performance series exploring the history of Off-Off Broadway. Our mission is to provide a home for personal engagement with art. Part artist-portrait, part history lesson, and part community forum, Coffeehouse Chronicles take an intimate look at the development of downtown theatre, from the 1960s' "Coffeehouse Theatres" through today. Events feature firsthand oral accounts from artists of the day, as well as conversations with contemporary artists who work in the same bold, daring manner today. Coffeehouse Chronicles is held on one Saturday each month (September through June), and is curated by Michal Gamily and Kim Ima; Educational Outreach by Arthur Adair.
