About Take Five
Take Five invites community members who feel attending theater is financially out of reach or want to take a chance on something new to experience the A.R.T. with a $5 ticket. A.R.T.’s mission is to expand the boundaries of theater, always including the audience as a central partner. Access is key to this partnership, and the Take Five initiative is one of the many ways A.R.T. is lowering cost barriers to its productions.
A select number of Take Five tickets to Becoming a Man will be available for purchase online for anyone who chooses to benefit from the deeply subsidized ticket. Additional blocks of Take Five tickets will be released in the coming weeks as the program continues to be promoted in the Greater Boston community.
Take Five ticket subsidies are supported by a lead gift and individual contributions.
“With last fall’s ticket initiative, supported with a lead gift by the Crimson Lion / Lavine Family Foundation, A.R.T. successfully expanded our civic dialogue with diverse audiences for our production of Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992,” said A.R.T. Executive Director Kelvin Dinkins, Jr. “We are grateful for the lead support from the Richard K. Lubin Family Foundation allows us to extend this pilot program through the remainder of our 2022/23 Season. Partnerships like these enable us to strengthen connections to our community while lowering the cost barrier as we endeavor to make A.R.T. a more welcoming and accessible space for our audiences.”
“We believe the performing arts improve the quality of life in Greater Boston. The Foundation is delighted to support American Repertory Theater’s Take Five program, helping to make a trip to the theater affordable for all,” explained one of the Trustees of the Richard K. Lubin Family Foundation.
