NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The curtain may be closing for good on a staple in the performing arts community as the Drama Book Shop in Manhattan’s Theater District is being priced out of its lease.
“This was the first place I ever went to when I moved to New York City,” said Lachlan Quertrnus. “Whatever you need is here.”
Like most actors just starting out, this shop is where he finds new plays and monologues for classes and auditions.
“I can’t even tell you how many people who have documented hours here,” he said. “It’s so important to the community.”
