Comedienne Jessica Delfino Pulls Plug on Henry Street’s ‘Unicorn’
Comedienne Jessica Delfino decided to pull the plug on her two-year-old experimental venue at 105 Henry Street, The Unicorn.
Closure happened a couple of weeks ago, and the retail space now sits empty with naught but a leasing sign and fading gate mural.
“Rent wasn’t really a factor [in the shutter]” Delfino disclosed in a recent email. “I think the business just ran its course. I taught for 5 years in my apt then 2 at the store. It was a great and educational experience for me!”
Delfino launched the multipurpose incubator space in 2015 on the eastern edge of Chinatown. Or, as she then called it, “Condotown.” It became an all-purpose performance space, music school, and theater.
