JACK is an OBIE-winning performance venue located at 20 Putnam Ave in Brooklyn. JACK is led by Alec Duffy and Jordana De La Cruz. We present over 100 theater, music and dance performances a year and hold community forums on issues of importance to our neighborhood.
Our mission is to fuel experiments in art and activism, collaborating with adventurous artists and our neighbors to bring about a just and vibrant society.
JACK's original co-founders include Duffy, Mimi Lien, Steven Leffue, Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr., Nikaury Rodriguez, Prentice Onayemi, Ike Ufomadu, Amy Laird Webb, Jennifer Kidwell and Andreea Mincic.
JACK is named after founder Alec Duffy’s grandfather — a minister, labor activist and lover of the arts.
