Lincoln Center Theater had long imagined building a third theater for the next generation of playwrights, directors and designers to work at LCT. The new Claire Tow Theater is the centerpiece of the two-story, 23,000-square-foot addition built on the roof of the Vivian Beaumont Theater. Designed by architect Hugh Hardy, this new venue includes the theater, much-needed rehearsal and office space, support areas, and a spacious lobby that opens onto an outdoor terrace surrounded by a new green roof. The outdoor area offers magnificent views of the rejuvenated Lincoln Center plaza.
The Claire Tow is home to LCT3, Lincoln Center Theater's initiative to produce the work of new artists and to engage new audiences. As we strive to support emerging artists, we have also been reaching out to younger and more ethnically diverse audiences. To help us achieve that goal, all LCT3 tickets are initially priced at an affordable $20. LCT3 was launched off-site in 2008 and has now moved to its permanent home, the Claire Tow Theater.
You can see more information about the construction of the Claire Tow Theater here.
