MCC - Manhattan Class Company Theatre Space

The Manhattan Class Company was founded in 1986. It started off as a collective of young actors, writers and directors. The new theatre space in Hell’s Kitchen, the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theatre Space continues today to be a creative hotbed. This new space, is a state-of-the-art structure, shaped on the needs of the artists.

And who better than Poltrona Frau could interpret the desires of its architect Andrew Berman? Poltrona Frau Custom Interiors, with its worldwide experience in the manufacturing of superior quality seats, is the best partner for any major seating project. Not only it perfectly interprets the essence of each project, but it also understands the nature and problems of each client.
