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 companies each year, offering an affordable venue and critical resources to more than 3,000 artists. Thanks to your tax-deductible investment in Theatre Row, we can serve 165,000 patrons annually, providing access to diverse, creative voices of the Off-Broadway community.

$5,000 can fuel Theatre Row’s growth as a model of strategic community building, ensuring we are offering a welcoming, accessible space to audiences and theater companies.

$2,500 can give innovative artists a base at Theatre Row, with our high-quality, centrally-located spaces and our unique history as a home for nonprofits.

$1,000 can provide need-based subsidized theater rentals, rehearsal studios, office space, ticketing, and tech support to Off-Broadway productions, allowing theater companies to focus on their work.

$500 can foster an environment for artists to thrive at Theatre Row, where they produce cross-generational and innovative storytelling.

$150 can help us provide collaborative support for our thoughtfully curated group of resident theatre companies, who represent a wide range of New York City’s cultural communities.

$50 can connect the next generation of creative visionaries, with audiences from New York City and beyond.
