JACK is an OBIE-winning 50-seat performance venue led by Alec Duffy. Duffy founded JACK in 2012 in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn with several co-founders. We present over 200 theater, music and dance performances a year and hold community forums on racial justice, gentrification, and police/community relations.
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.
