Help Rebuild The York Theatre
A message from Tom and Michael D'Angora, the creators of this Go Fund Me campaign:
We need your help to rebuild The York Theatre!
After our successful efforts to save the West Bank Café and Birdland, Michael and I are calling on you to rally once more to help another beloved New York arts institution through this year.
As if the pandemic wasn’t enough, a separate disaster has befallen our treasured York Theatre Company: a flood caused by a city water main break on January 4, 2021.
The York was biding its time through the shutdown in a fiscally responsible manner, waiting to produce their first post-pandemic live performance when a flood unexpectedly devastated their home, destroying much in its wake and forcing them to fully move out of their theater and office spaces for the first time in 30 years. We cannot lose such a nurturing source of creativity when there is finally light at the end of the tunnel from this past year. Let’s make sure the York can reopen live and in person in a space they can call their own!
Like so many in our community, Jim Morgan and The York Theatre helped give us our start in this industry and is very near and dear to our hearts. The York is also the only theatre in New York City dedicated to developing and fully producing new musicals and preserving notable shows from the past. For over five decades, the York’s intimate imaginative style of producing both new and classic musicals has resulted in critical acclaim and recognition from artists and audiences alike, all while launching the careers of new musical theatre creators and providing a home for distinguished writers to reexamine their work.
Even while homeless, the York has maintained its online presence, but they need our help to raise money to remake a physical home. We are honored and humbled to be able to help this iconic theater get through this puddle in the road so they can continue to do what they do best … BRING MUSICALS TO LIFE!
