By managing and developing transitional housing, AFC helps approximately 1,400 young people every year, most between the ages of 16 and 24.

In 2017, the Center provided 124 beds a night for homeless LGBT youth.

Inspired by Vicki Baum's 1929 novel, Grand Hotel follows the postwar comings and goings of the artists, businessmen, jewel thieves, and ambitious young secretaries whose lives intersect in the opulent lobby of Berlin's most prestigious hotel. First produced under the title At the Grand (1958), the original production was revitalized in 1989 by director-choreographer Tommy Tune and enjoyed a Tony Award-winning run on Broadway.
Looking for the quintessential New York City brunch experience? You'll find it at New World Stages in The Imbible: Day Drinking, the latest edition of the hit musical comedy series about cocktails and spirits!

Suzanna Ross sings from the American, French, and British songbooks. She has been engaging audiences in NYC with her show Love & L'amour, which is a romantic journey through yesteryear, swinging '60s, and a Paris café. Songs are from the lists of Dusty Springfield, Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, Cole Porter, Diana Krall, Sting, Jacques Brel, Burt Bacharach, Francoise Hardy, Zaz, and more. Suzanna will be supported by a jazz trio including piano, bass, and drums. She has performed at the Metropolitan Room, Tomi Jazz Club, Kitano, Cafe Noctambulo, and other cultural venues. This is a uniquely romantic and fun show.
The toast of 1930s London, Me and My Girl is a delightfully old-fashioned musical about a cockney everyman who wreaks havoc on high society after being unexpectedly elevated to the lofty position of Earl of Hereford. Part music hall frolic, part class-warfare comedy, Noel Gay's infectious score includes "The Lambeth Walk," a dance routine that swept the continent in 1937. In the 1980s, Me and My Girl was revived on both sides of the Atlantic and became a completely unexpected smash all over again. Now, for the first time in nearly 30 years, it's back in New York.
A dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert, this genre-bending music-theater hybrid starring Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees who arrived in Canada in 1908. Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It's about refugees who get out before it's too late and those who get out after it's too late. And it's about looking into the eyes of God.
Part tour and part show, The Ride is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that turns the streets of New York City into a stage. With stadium seating, 40 monitors, 3,000 LED lights, and surround sound, The Ride is the world's only moving theater. Its ensemble cast of singers, dancers, musicians, actors, and comedians appear along a 75-minute journey through Times Square and midtown Manhattan. These performers interact with RIDErs, engaging them through quizzes, facts, and shout-outs. At the same time, the RIDErs, who face sideways out of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, see Manhattan's iconic landmarks emerge in panoramic and vertical views. Students, adults, and seniors share this unforgettable NYC experience.
Songs for a New World, the first musical from Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (created in collaboration with Daisy Prince), is a collection of powerful songs examining life, love, and the choices ordinary people make when faced with extraordinary moments. From the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to the ledge of a Fifth Avenue high-rise, all characters face a new world that follows the unique challenge they encounter.
Forty-five years after its original release, The Who's album Tommy — a classic rock classic — gets a bluegrass tribute. Composed as a rock opera by guitarist Pete Townshend, Tommy presents the life experience of a deaf, blind, and mute boy, including his relationship with his family. Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry, an all-acoustic rendition of the album, reinvents the original while also respecting it. Conceived and produced by SXSW cofounder and longtime musician Louis Jay Meyers, the revamped album features The HillBenders, a bluegrass band based in Springfield, Missouri.
