The Chocolate Factory Theater has scored a golden ticket and secured a permanent home for $3.8 million with financial help from the NYC government according to The New York Times. Currently located on 49th Avenue in Hunters Point, the theater will be moving into a 7,500 SF single story brick building at 38-29 24th Street in Dutch Kills, for now the home of Earth Stone Design Inc., a stone supplier, for the 2018-2019 season. I imagine acquiring a new home will allow the Chocolate Factory to largely stay the course in terms of avant garde programming, which leaves only two questions lingering: 1) who/what will come into their existing space? and 2) did the founders get to crash the Glass Elevator thru the ceiling and soar above the towers of Long Island City?
