More than three dozen theater productions are participating in the discount festival, including the Broadway revival of A Streetcar Named Desire, Memory House at Playwrights Horizons, The Argument at the Vineyard, The False Servant at Classic Stage Company, all wear bowlers at HERE Arts Center, Slag Heap at the Cherry Lane, and Miss Julie at Rattlestick Theatre. Other highlights include Amateur Night at the Apollo, Dan Faulk's Funky Jazz Trio at the Queens Historical Society, and family-friendly events such as a Truffala Papermaking Party and a Yoga Garden for Children at the Children's Museum of Manhattan.
By creating a "limited" discount offer, the festival emphasizes the sheer breadth of talent that is available to New Yorkers every day, and to those visiting the City from across the country and around the world -- while making it easier to attend these cultural events. In addition to eliminating any perceived or actual price barriers, the Coalition and A.R.T./New York will prepare a short survey that will be distributed to participating organizations, so that the field can both quantify and qualify the positive economic, social, and cultural benefits which the arts bring to each and every community they serve.
