New York, NY (January 27, 2017) — Lincoln Center announced today “30 Days for $30,” a new initiative offering greater access to performances for 30 days between February 1 and March 4, 2017. Via an online lottery hosted by Jujamcyn Theaters, Lincoln Center and many of its resident organizations will make prime seats available for only $30 to a wide swath of productions across the campus. Program partners include The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center’s Great Performers and American Songbook, New York City Ballet, and the New York Philharmonic.


Jujamcyn Theaters, in partnership with The John Gore Organization, have created the digital lottery software and a landing page where all offers will be listed beginning on January 27, 2017. Potential audience members can enter the lottery for as many performances and events as they wish at, and will be notified within 48 hours of any given performance if they have won access to the $30 tickets.


“Part of Lincoln Center’s mission is to make the arts available and accessible to anyone and everyone,” said Peter Duffin, Senior Vice President of Brand and Marketing at Lincoln Center. “30 Days for $30 offers a terrific bargain on tickets for the culturally curious. Our hope is that people take advantage of this special opportunity by sampling a variety of events across campus and perhaps even trying out performances in a genre that might be new to them.”
