Demographics & Budget

We are proud to serve a diverse demographic of our urban community. A recent survey demonstrated that 70% of our audience is below the age of 60, 17% describe themselves as non-Caucasian, and nearly 30% of our audience lives at or below the poverty line in NYC. 
In comparison to peer classical theatres, we serve a much younger and more diverse, a testament to the success of our mission in creating new audiences for the theatre. 

New York Classical Theatre is growing. Over the last two seasons, we have doubled our administrative staff, added 3 new performance venues, and increased our budget by 89%. Our 2015-16 annual budget is $445,000.
