Major Gifts


The Artistic Director’s Society


During these times when theatre needs the special support of generous patrons who share our belief in Theatre’s ability to bring people together and inspire dialogue, Theatre for a New Audience welcomes gifts of $5,000 and above in the Artistic Director’s Society.

As a member of this Society, you will enjoy the benefits including access to house seats at all of our productions arranged for you by the Development Department, invitations to exclusive events, and a special gift from the Founding Artistic Director or one of our artists. Along with increased privileges and access to reflect your extraordinary devotion to classic theatre, your gift ensures Theatre for a New Audience’s leadership in the conversation in New York about how Shakespeare, other classics, and modern work shed new light and bring new perspectives to our lives.

With your tax-deductible gift, you will receive year-long benefits, including access to special events and up-to-date news from the Theatre. For more information on how to join, contact James Lynes, Director of Institutional Advancement, at 212-229-2819, ext. 29 or by email to Your support means so much!
