When our organization was founded in 1976, our initial undertaking—the transformation of the once-derelict area of 42nd Street into a beacon for the arts, now known as Theatre Row—became a model of neighborhood redevelopment. Thanks to supporters like you, we can continue to partner with more than 100 theatre companies each year—including our ten Companies-in-Residence and five Kitchen Sink Companies—by offering an affordable venue and critical resources to more than 3,000 artists. Your tax-deductible investment in Theatre Row empowers us to serve 125,000 patrons annually, providing affordable access to diverse, creative voices of the Off-Broadway community.

$5,000 sponsors a week of the Kitchen Sink Festival in Theatre One—part of our long-awaited return to Theatre Row in a reinvigorated Theater District.

$1,000 funds the replacement of an aging assisted listening device, ensuring that our theatres remain optimized for the hearing-impaired when we re-open.

$250 rents the Theatre Row Lounge for a Company-in-Residence’s opening night party—we’ll be celebrating 2021 by bringing our artists’ vision to life.

$100 sponsors an artist’s TRLive! performance, allowing our community to connect virtually—the next best thing to being together in the Theatre Row Lounge.

$50 makes you a founding member of the Builders’ Circle and grants you early ticket access for the inaugural Kitchen Sink Festival in Summer 2021.

$25 helps our tireless staff to keep building connections between artists and audiences, whether virtually or in person.
