“Why give money and time to a tiny theater in lower Manhattan? … Our little theater, doing groundbreaking work in a perspicuous continuity with a tradition that goes back millennia, can, amid the noise, the clutter, the rage, and the impatience, make more of a difference now than ever.” -Honoree and Board member Tim Blake Nelson
