The Soho Repertory Theatre, also known as Soho Rep[1], is an [[Off-Broadway theater company with a 73-seat located at 46 Walker Street in the TriBeCa district of Manhattan, New York City. Since 2000, the company has been awarded eleven Obie Awards, four Drama Desk Award nominations, and an Oppenheimer Award.

Soho Rep’s first home was in the SoHo section of Manhattan, on the ground floor of a loft building at 19 Mercer Street. After the building was sold and the company forced to move, it received a grant from the office of then Manhattan Borough President Andrew Stein (later president of the New York City Council) to renovate the auditorium of the partly abandoned old Bellevue Hospital building on East 29th Street.
Soho Rep’s next home was Greenwich House, an historic settlement building on Barrow Street in Greenwich Village. Having to share the theater space at Greenwich House with other performance events eventually proved confining, and after several seasons Soho Rep, under Marlene Swartz and Julian Webber, moved to its present home at 46 Walker Street where it has been since 1991.
Historically, Soho Rep was actually located in SoHo for only its first few years (Bellevue Hospital is in Kips Bay, Greenwich House is in the Village, and Walker Street is below SoHo, in TriBeCa); accordingly, the new name is more commonly seen as "Soho"[1] (lowercase h). It has also performed at outside venues, among them the Queens Playhouse in the Park and Saint Bartholomew’s Church.
