Theater Access Project

We are excited to pilot the Geffen Playhouse Theater Access Project (TAP) this season, thanks to the bold leadership of eight Board members, whose significant generosity and belief in the power of the arts are giving us the opportunity to invite new patrons to experience the joy of theater and significantly expand our audiences and partnerships with the diverse Greater Los Angeles community – at little to no cost to our new TAP patrons and partners.

To engage new patrons within the diverse communities of Los Angeles in the art of theater and introduce them to the world-class plays on our stages, with the hope that they will fall in love with the Geffen Playhouse and become life-long theatergoers and supporters of the arts.

Individuals and organizations from all neighborhoods of Los Angeles that are new to theater and/or to the Geffen Playhouse and are wanting to experience the joy and power of theater.

To build new levels of inspiration, empathy, understanding, hope and connection to the people and world around us through live theater and storytelling – at little to no cost to our new TAP patrons and partners.



Apply or recommend an organization or school for the Theater Access Project whose community members would benefit from this extraordinary opportunity to experience the vibrant, world-class productions in our Gil Cates Theater this season.

To support this new initiative, DONATE TODAY!
