THE INITIATIVE: In an effort to increase access to Broadway, Here Lies Love, in partnership with Gold House and The Asian American Foundation, is launching Democracy in Action, a ticket initiative for performances beginning in October.
Our goal is to raise $1 million in tax-deductible donations to subsidize 33% of our ticket inventory. These tickets will go to high school and college students; healthcare, service, and municipal workers; community centers; and other nonprofits.
We are modeling this initiative on successful programs like the Hamilton Education Program, which subsidized $10 tickets for students at Title-I Schools in New York City. The Gilder Lehrman Institute, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, initially subsidized 20,000 tickets, but has now subsidized over 250,000!
Much like the Philippine People Power Revolution, it’s through community and humanity that we change the world for the better. Art is an essential tool in education and information, and by donating to this initiative you are not only increasing access to Broadway, you’re also helping Here Lies Love succeed.
All donations are 100% tax deductible.
For convenience, you can complete your donation online on this page. However, if you intend to make a donation of greater than $5,000, we suggest that you complete that transaction via bank wire or by sending a check directly to our fiscal sponsor. To receive those instructions, please email email@example.com with the subject line “HLL – ticket subsidy donation”.
ABOUT THE SHOW: From Talking Heads frontman DAVID BYRNE; the beat master of “Praise You,” DJ FATBOY SLIM; and the Tony®-winning director of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, ALEX TIMBERS, comes Here Lies Love, “an experience the likes of which Broadway has rarely if ever seen” (Variety). Witness the dazzling rise and fall of a young woman who gets catapulted to a life of fame, excess, and intoxicating power after winning the hearts of two political rivals.
“Here Lies Love is the best time to be had on Broadway right now.”
