Helping Theatre Survive the Current Unpleasantness has been the beneficiary of a lot of support and plain affection from the NY theatre industry in the last few years. From the big Broadway shows to the black-box theatres to the press agents large and small, each has been more than generous to our reviewers and by extension our readers.

In order to keep as many afloat as possible, we are going to provide you links that will allow you to give what you can to aid these artists and entrepreneurs during the pandemic.

One of my personal favorites is Frigid New York in my old neighborhood — the East Village. The Kraine and Under St. Mark’s are wonderful spots for cutting edge theatre and deserve your support.

I also love the Signature Theatre, where they are trying to keep the paychecks coming to staff whose jobs are currently on hold.

New York City Center goes back to the days of Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, and I take my granddaughter to see Fall for Dance there every October.

The Joyce Theatre is a national treasure, and quite probably my favorite place for dance.

The Public Theater — home of Shakespeare in the Park, and home of off-Broadway’s “Hamilton.” Founded by Joe Papp on the premise that Theatre is as important to a city as trash collection, Stagebiz holds to the same values.

Urban Stages is an award-winning, not-for-profit, Off-Broadway Theatre Company founded in 1984.

Inside Broadway offers you a way to help a broad range of individuals and companies.

Playbill has its own list, and it’s worth a visit, too.

Stay home, wash your hands, and when this is over, we will all have a night out at a show.

Jeff Myhre,
