Last weekend for the Stone on Avenue C

The Stone wraps up its 13-year run (some 7,500 performances, and no refreshments or merchandise!) this weekend on Avenue C at Second Street.

John Zorn announced back in December 2016 that he would be relocating his experimental performance space ... which turned out to be at the Glass Box Theatre at the New School. (Zorn has been hosting weekend residencies there since June.)

As the Voice reported in early 2017:

He will continue as artistic director of the nonprofit venue, with musicians doing all the curating and volunteers providing support. Artists will continue to receive all revenue from tickets, which will remain priced at $20. The seating capacity — 74 — will stay the same. “And our aesthetic will not alter one bit,” Zorn said.

For Zorn, the move isn’t one of need, his club’s lease wasn’t up. “It was simply time for a change,” he said.

The final show on Avenue C is Sunday night. Find the lineup of remaining shows here.

The corner space hit the market last August. The listing, which stipulated "no bars," is off the market as of Dec. 17.
