LCT's Patrons provide essential help to our Theater and receive valuable privileges throughout the season including personalized ticket reservations, preferred seating, convenient pre-show dinners and behind-the-scenes events.

I invite you to join us at Lincoln Center Theater for another year of exciting new productions.  We would be honored and grateful for your first-time or renewed Patron support as we celebrate 35 years on the Lincoln Center campus.

— André Bishop, Producing Artistic Director

Your Patron gift makes so many things here possible - our productions, of course; our education program for New York's public school children, our magazine that you see in the lobbies, our Directors Lab, our Platform Series, and our Readings and Workshops program.  These are activities that nourish theater artists and foster new generations of theatergoers.

As a Patron you can count yourself among Lincoln Center Theaters most ardent supporters and we will be pleased to express our appreciation with insider status for you at LCT.

LCT thanks Florence Kaufman for her generous support of our Patron Program.
