Lower Ossington Theatre is permanently closed.
While it is likely no surprise by now, considering that countless other small venues have already disappeared, not to mention large national businesses, it is nonetheless heartbreaking. As a small organization that was always punching above its weight, “The LOT” was a hub for hundreds of up-and-coming actors, and presented thousands of live performances over the last decade. Everyone involved should be proud of what was accomplished.
The LOT did hold on as long as possible, but, as it is for many, the rent was simply not sustainable. The unfortunate truth is that The LOT helped build up an area that eventually out-priced it.
In the coming weeks, this website will transition to an archive of memories from The LOT.
