List in formation

November 7, 2019 marks the birth centennial of Ellen Stewart, our founder. She dedicated her life to supporting artists and advancing cultural dialogue. Ellen created a space founded on artistic freedom where those who struggled to be heard could have a place to call home. Provided with the resources to achieve their fullest potential, our artists propelled the Off-Off-Broadway and experimental theatre movements. Ellen's legacy of supporting artists can be seen today on and off Broadway, in film, television, and many other artistic mediums. Proceeds from the gala support our 58th Season, which celebrates Ellen’s legacy with special events and productions that present emerging artists alongside established artists who stand as testaments to her vision.
