“I don’t know any other place in the world like it.”
Jake Gyllenhaal

As Manhattan’s first performing arts center, City Center plays a vital role to bringing the performing arts to 300,000 New Yorkers—and your support makes it all possible. In 1943, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia declared City Center as “the people’s theater” and we strive every day to champion the work of extraordinary artists and to inspire you our audiences with programming that reflects the eclecticism, energy, and spirit of the city for which we are named.

There are many ways to support City Center, and we are grateful to our supporters whose commitment is vital to the success of our programs.
