MCC executive director Blake West remarked: "It is a dream fulfilled to have a space that will unite and expand our unique education and public engagement programs and benefit our growing community of writers, directors, actors, students, audience members, as well as the community in which we will now be working and producing — Hell's Kitchen — and all New York City residents. MCC is marking its 32nd season this year, and it is wonderful to feel both the continuity of what we do and the excitement of change this moment represents."
