Party with A.R.T. at our virtual Spring Celebration featuring special appearances and performances by Sara Bareilles, Gavin Creel, V (formerly Eve Ensler), Sergio Trujillo, Jack Noseworthy, and more! Every attendee of the free event will receive first access to purchase subscriptions to A.R.T.’s 2021/22 Season. Watch this space for more announcements about participating artists and other surprises!

Gone is the winter of our discontent, and now we look onwards towards our upcoming season of shows. Tune in to revisit some of the theater’s hit shows from the past and explore some of the digital material we’ve created over the past year. Curious about what we’re cooking up for next season? Learn more from Terrie and Bradley Bloom Artistic Director Diane Paulus and Executive Producer Diane Borger, as we get an exciting preview of the new work on the horizon.

Our Spring Celebration is charged with raising critical funds that support the theater’s mission and work—from the free virtual programs we’ve offered since March 2020, to our collaborations with local students and community members, all the way to our plans for safely reopening and welcoming audiences back into our spaces.

By becoming a sponsor today, you and your guests will be able to enjoy the event and have access to one-of-a-kind sponsorship benefits that begin the day you send in your RSVP all the way through the 2021/22 Season.

For more information and to learn how you can get involved, please contact A.R.T. Development staff at Art_Events@harvard.edu.

A.R.T.: Waitress. Sara Bareilles first achieved mainstream critical praise in 2007 with her hit “Love Song,” which reached #1 in 22 countries around the world from her debut album Little Voice. Since then, the Eureka, CA native has sold millions of albums worldwide and received five Grammy nominations including Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Love Song.” Bareilles’ highly anticipated sophomore release Kaleidoscope Heart debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 chart in September 2010 and has gained praise everywhere including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, People and Los Angeles Times. The album yielded the hit single “King of Anything,” which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and was certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2011, Bareilles joined the judges’ panel on the hit NBC show “The Sing-Off.” Soon after, she released her highly revered Once Upon Another Time EP, produced by singer/songwriter and fellow “Sing-Off” judge Ben Folds. Sara’s highly acclaimed third studio album, The Blessed Unrest, released in 2013 via Epic Records, debuted at #2 on the Billboard album chart and was nominated for two Grammy Awards including “Album of the Year” and “Best Pop Performance” for her hit single “Brave.” Bareilles’ upcoming book, Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) In Song, is slated to be released on October 6 by Simon & Schuster. Sara is also releasing a solo studio album featuring music from Waitress due out this fall on Epic Records.
