Back The Billie!

Our Stage. Our Stories. A Monthly Campaign to Support The Billie Holiday Theatre.

A fundraising campaign for The Billie Holiday Theatre

COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the closing of theatres across New York City, the nation, and the world, leaving arts and culture organzations vulnerable, but none more so than those that serve communities of the global majority. Thirty percent of The Billie's annual revenue comes from ticketing, theatre rentals and other earned income streams that have been impacted by this pandemic. 

While The Billie remains closed, our hearts and minds remain open, deepening our resolve to stay connected with you in new and meaningful ways during this time. Your support today is especially vital to help us bridge that gap so we can continue to bring world-class art to our community.

Thank you for your generosity!

Stay safe, stay well, stay inspired.
