Why is Theatre Forward on Morgan Stanley’s Lights on Broadway Times Square electronic billboard?



For the month of August, Theatre Forward will be featured on an electronic billboard on Broadway and 48th Street in New York City. We thank our long-time supporter Morgan Stanley for this opportunity to remind people of theatre’s unique capacity to bring us together. It also gives us a chance to share what we do to advance American theatre and its communities. Through the theatre, we share stories that are transformative on an individual and community level.

On the billboard, we are highlighting photos from our member theatres around the country. There is great theatre happening all across the country at organizations that are committed to building strong communities and welcoming all audiences.

The theatre is a gathering place to – come to together as a culture to share ideas and experience stories. 

We invite everyone to visit their local theatres.

In partnerships with organizations and people who come together to give back and make a difference, our programs:

– Strive to make all audiences feel welcomed.
– Support stories representing different perspectives at theatres across the country.
– Provide students with arts education access and exposure.

Theatre is everywhere, it is for everyone, and it is for you.
