We are aware there has been significant public interest in NYU’s plans for the building that houses the Provincetown Playhouse. The University wishes to fully share its thinking with you on this proposal, which you can find in the attached material.
I hope you will come away from the information below with two clear and firm understandings:

It is our hope that the attached provides you with a fuller understanding of the current Provincetown Playhouse site, its history, and what NYU proposes to do there. I think that, in particular, if you look at the enclosed photos, you will see the great changes that have taken place in the building since the time the Provincetown Players were there, and also the highly contextual design that the University and its architects have come up with in response to both the neighborhood and the building as it now exists.
We lay a great deal of emphasis on dialogue as part of the process of thinking through our projects, and we welcome your further input.
