Support Us | Special Recognition


Every individual and organization on this list is due our wholehearted thanks and recognition. They all played important roles in putting our two new companies onstage.

Each of these special friends contributed in their own special way to the successful launch of American Theater Festival and National Jewish Theater. No two gifts were the same, yet each was instrumental in some special way. They gave in-kind services, they offered advice, they provided special guidance, or they gave their big-hearted gift of good friendship at crucial points along the way.
