Studio W is the home of The Joyce Theater Foundation’s artist residency programs. Artists presenting work at The Joyce regularly work and rehearse in this beautiful space as they prepare for their performances. Studio W also contained the gas lines that were used to power gas lights at A.T Stewart Dry Goods, which occupied 280 Broadway from the mid 1840s until 1862.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, studio capacities have been reduced to 33% in our studios for all rehearsals, classes, and workshop rentals. Filming, photoshoot, and production rentals will be allowed at 50% capacity for each studio.
