The Capital Campaign
New: our Indiegogo campaign!
In 2000, WOW
launched its first large-scale fundraising effort, a capital campaign
to help us buy and renovate our theater. The City of New York has sold the tenants of 59-61 East 4th Street the
building for $1!
The caveat: That we raise the funds to
renovate the building, and bring it up to code. WOW’s share of renovation costs is about $200,000. As
we have survived solely on box-office sales for 25 years, this is more
money than we’ve ever had or needed in the past.
When we do
succeed in securing these funds, WOW will own its own permanent theater
space in a completely renovated building.
One of the most
exciting aspects, which we have achieved, is the addition of a functional 24/7
self-service elevator! Yet to come is an ADA approved accessible bathroom, and dare we say air-conditioning?!
We have raised more than 2/3 of the total, but are not there yet! In order to make this possible, we urgently need your financial help! No
donation is too small or too large, and any amount will help us ensure
that theatre by women and/or by transgender people continues to thrive and be ever-increasingly accessible.
WOW Cafe Theater
is located at 59-61 East 4th Street
on the Fourth Floor.
between Bowery and 2nd Avenue in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New
York City, USA.
We now have a 24/7 available elevator for our building!
WOW Cafe Theatre is a member of Fourth Arts Block (FAB)
only cultural district in Manhattan.
