Patron Program

Patron Program members provide significant support for MTC’s productions as well as the company’s extensive artistic development and education programs with gifts of $2,500 or more and enjoy a unique relationship with MTC, receiving benefits that include:

  • The best seats in the house
    MTC reserves the best seats in all of our theatres for Patrons, who also enjoy complete scheduling flexibility, and the personalized attention of our dedicated staff.
  • Intimate access to leading theatre artists 
    MTC Patrons are afforded the opportunity to interact with artistic guests at pre-show dinners, receptions, and cocktail parties, and other special events. Imagine talking with Kathryn Erbe about her role in The Father opposite Frank Langella’s Tony-winning performance or asking Robert Sean Leonard what it was like working on Prodigal Son – our Patrons have done just that and more.
  • A welcoming community
    Many Patrons regard MTC as the best place to see their friends and meet new people.  They gather before shows in our exclusive Patron Lounges and at our special Patron dinners and receptions.

All Patrons receive the best seats in the house for a full season of MTC productions.  Patron benefits begin at $2,500 and include a tax-deductible contribution to MTC.  All benefits and privileges are renewable on an annual basis.

For more information about the Patron Program, or to join by phone, please contact Ben Lasser at (212) 399-3000 x4142 or [email protected].
