The hard truth is, the impact of the unending shutdown of live theatre, and its mounting collateral damage, has been profound. Now more than ever, American Stage depends on your support.
Why Give Now?
This year, please consider investing in American Stage. Together we can reimagine, and we can recover. Because when we come together and share stories representing our diverse perspectives and experiences, we expand our world, our differences cease to divide us and we become united through the shared experience of what it is to be human. Thank you for believing in the power of live theatre to help to heal our community.
“The country needs to be healed — it’s not going to be healed from the top, politically. How are we going to heal? Art is the healing force.”
-Robert Redford, 2012
