Online Petition to Save the Playpen

The Committee To Save The Playpen Theater is looking for signatures for its online petition to save NYC’s oldest vaudeville Theater, the Playpen on 8th Avenue between 43rd & 44th Streets, which was known as the Ideal Theatre in 1916. The clock is ticking on this Beaux Art gem. Demolition permits are pending , and the Committee is trying to convince developer Daniel Tishman to donate it to a non-profit who has submitted a proposal.
