Help us bring more essential stories to life – on stage and off
Our impact extends far beyond the theater community, but ticket sales and memberships cover less than half of our annual costs. We depend on support from people who share our vision to produce bold theater, develop more new plays, and enrich the lives of more than 4,000 New York City public school students. Your donation will help sustain the cause of truthful storytelling accessible to all.
From the desk of Jez Butterworth
“A good night in the theatre (that’s how it’s spelled) is like nothing else on earth. It’s a thrill unavailable any place else. It can change your very sense of yourself, your connection to your soul and to the souls of others and to the past, the present and the future. You tingle with goosebumps. Your dreams are affected. A good night at the theatre becomes part of you in a way nothing else does, not even a great novel. Because YOU were there. YOU saw it. It happened to YOU.”
