The newly renovated & historic Argyle Theatre on Main Street in the Village of Babylon, NY, opens in Spring, 2018 with the musical Guys and Dolls, the first show in a full roster of plays, musicals, concerts and other performing arts. The theatre will offer six annual main stage productions featuring performers from Actors Equity Association, the union for professional stage actors.
The much-anticipated performance venue has been brought back to life by Mark and Dylan Perlman, a father-son duo behind the $3-million project. Seaford residents Mark Perlman, psychologist, and Dylan Perlman, actor, have long dreamed of bringing high-quality live theatre to Babylon, NY.
To help fuel the success of the Argyle Theatre project, the NYS Empire State Development Corporation awarded the Perlman’s a $150,000 grant, and the Babylon Town Industrial Development Agency awarded the theater tax breaks worth nearly $300,000.
Renovations of the Suffolk County theatre have been extensive, ranging from knocking down walls, rebuilding the stage, painting, updating carpeting and curtains, installing state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, adding a bar to the upstairs lounge, and refurbishing the 500-seat theatre’s iconic marquee and sign.
Babylon Mayor Ralph Scordino said, “It’s going to be a fantastic boost for our downtown.”
