Playwrights Horizons’ Annual Gala is our most important fundraising event of the year. We invite our community of artists, supporters, and friends as we celebrate our achievements with an evening of delicious food, superb entertainment and a silent auction. Funds raised support our more than 40-year-old mission to develop, produce and champion new American theatrical works. Through the participation of donors, our theater continues to be a vibrant leader in the development of new American plays and musicals and a standard for excellence in the theater world.

Generation PH – Donor Program for theatergoers 45 & Under

Generation PH is a community of younger philathropists and theatergoers who attend Playwrights Horizons productions; mingle with cast members, artistic staff and our Board of Trustees at exclusive parties and receptions; and see theater in a new way by talking to the writers about the development of their plays. Plus a portion of each membership is a tax-deductible contribution that directly supports these amazing artists and their new works.  Information about Generation PH.
