Make a Tax-Deductible Donation to The Assembly
We make theater because we believe in its power to promote empathy, dramatize complexity, and harness the ideas of many into a nuanced pictures of what it means to live in America today. But the truth is that these efforts cannot be supported by ticket sales alone. Just as it takes a community of artists to create these productions, it takes a community of supporters to bring them to light. We depend on your generosity to create innovative, visceral and intelligent theater.
