NYC Theater Subdistrict Council Announces Grant Awards to Support Theater Production and Audience Development

October 1, 2010 - Fifteen organizations will receive grants totaling $2.1 million from the New York City Theater Subdistrict Council for a range of projects that will encourage audience development and foster the creation of new work. The groups are the beneficiaries of a zoning initiative that preserves historic theaters and helps ensure the long term viability of live theater within New York City’s Theater District, the world-famous area in midtown Manhattan from 40th to 57th Street.

The TSC administers the Theater Subdistrict Fund to allocate grants with the goal of developing new audiences, promoting the production of new theater work and showcasing Broadway’s singular role in the history of American theater.

“By supporting the development of new work and diverse voices, and stimulating expanded access to high-quality performance, the Theater Subdistrict Council grants will help build new audiences and reinforce New York City’s identity as a creative center,” said Cultural Affairs Commissioner Kate D. Levin.

The award recipients are:

- 52nd Street Project
- Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts
- Apollo Theater Foundation
- Atlantic Theater Company
- The Broadway League
- Fractured Atlas
- Lark Play Development Center
- Lincoln Center Theater
- New 42nd Street
- Playwrights Horizons
- Rosie's Broadway Kids
- Roundabout Theatre Company
- Signature Theatre Company
- Theatre Development Fund
- Walker International Communications Group

The TSC consists of the Mayor, three representatives appointed by the Mayor from the performing arts, theatrical and related industries, the Speaker of the City Council and her designee, the Manhattan Borough President, and the Director of the Department of City Planning. The TSC is chaired by Commissioner Kate Levin, on behalf of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Approximately $5.5 million has been paid into the fund to date. This is the second round of TSC awards, following $1.26 million in grants that were awarded last year.
