Welcoming live audiences back to our theater has been, in a word, incredible. We know that things still look and feel different, but feeling that electricity in a room just before a downbeat–there is simply nothing else like it.

Getting to this point has been one of the heaviest lifts Roulette has ever undertaken. When the pandemic struck New York and our doors closed we got to work paying out scheduled artist fees. We ramped up our TV, radio, and Archive programming to keep artists visible. In September, we launched a completely virtual season, and we spent months creating a safe environment to welcome back live audiences. Between September 2020 and June 2021, Roulette presented 101 shows to the world for free. That’s hundreds of artists who were paid, creating, and valued when they needed it most.

There is so much that happens behind the scenes to make this work possible. Every single donation, no matter the amount, helps Roulette help artists work here, stay here, and flourish here in our beloved city, where their ideas are the lifeblood of our neighborhoods and communities. We simply could not have made it to this point without the overwhelming support of our community—and we cannot make it further without you.
