Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University


Invest in NYU Skirball's future! The artists and audiences of tomorrow depend upon you. Support from Members helps us continue to build new and enthusiastic audiences for the performing arts. Live performance is a unique and vital form of expression that not only has the ability to entertain, it can make you think, change your perceptions, and affect you in ways you don’t expect or even think possible. The artists at NYU Skirball Center will inspire you with their music, make you laugh with their wit, and astonish you with their physical brilliance. Just one special moment can transform a new theatergoer into a lover of the arts for life and with performances and events offered almost every night of the week, NYU Skirball Center has many opportunities to do so.
