Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer has declared January 26, 2016 Theater for the New City Appreciation Day and the theater is celebrating with festivities that day beginning at 7:00. There will be a benefit bake sale, performances by Kitty Lunn, Yip Harburg Foundation's Rainbow Troupe and the dance/percussion troupe COBU, free Karaoke, and a special presentation by playwright Jean-Claude van Itallie.
The bake sale will kick off fundraising to replace the theater's broken handicapped lift in order to facilitate access to the theater complex's basement theater and bathrooms. Everyone in the theater community is encouraged to bake something, then come to sell it. Separate contributions will also be accepted.
