In return for this sponsorship, your name will be noted in the theatre as the sponsor of that particular night, week, or month. You can, of course, remain anonymous.
We are giving away 25% of seats (45 seats) at every performance to those in recovery communities or treatment centers who cannot afford to buy tickets. Our first group was from the Phoenix House Brooklyn and Bronx Community Recovery Centers. These are people without much money—yet last week at intermission when one of their members noticed a box labeled “donations” and pointed it out to others, many reached into their pockets and put in a dollar, or some spare change—just like at 12-step meetings. For many, this is their first time in “live” theatre, and we have to clarify what an “intermission” is. There has always been a wish in theatre to have “a people’s theatre,” and this is it. There’s a saying in AA, that it’s a program for everyone, “from Yale to Jail.” (Disclaimer: this work does not imply affiliation with or endorsement by AA World Services Inc.)
All of the plays revenues go to a national college and medical school tour to deal with the epidemic of binge drinking on campus. The Christie Institute of Boston will fund this non-profit tour. The Soho Playhouse will be our “home” for the work with NYU students to develop and rehearse, and perform the play “pilot” in March.
