We expand access to the performing arts by providing creative spacelearning opportunities, and hubs for artistic connection.

NEWS! Building for the Arts is proud to welcome The American Playwriting Foundation to its programming!


The American Playwriting Foundation’s defining work, the annual Relentless Award, created in honor of Philp Seymour Hoffman and his relentless pursuit of truth in theater, will be presented under the auspices of Building for the Arts beginning in 2021.

BFA President Wendy Rowden said, “The mission of the American Playwriting Foundation truly complements the work of Building for the Arts, Theatre Row and Music and the Brain. Partnering allows us to add a welcome new dimension to our programming and provide a physical home for APF at Theatre Row.” Please click here to learn more.
