SUPPORT THE APOLLO THEATER

On behalf of everyone at the Apollo Theater, we are so grateful for your continued support of the Theater.

We asked for emergency support in the spring, and you all stepped up even though I know you too, were struggling. I am in awe of your generosity.

The Apollo is working tirelessly to fulfill its commitment as a presenter of African-American artists and use its platforms to amplify messages of social justice, Black joy, and community action. Though the Theater is currently dark, the spirit of the Apollo is still alive through the Apollo Digital Stage. From re-broadcasts of our signature Amateur Night program, to film screenings, we have announced a fall season with new and exciting programs. Our education programs continue in the digital arena as well. The importance of the Apollo as the largest theater devoted to the African-American experience is critical, and so the work continues.

I cannot overstate the negative impact that the pandemic has had on the Apollo’s finances. The Apollo has seen its share of challenges in its 86-year history, and we will continue to rise up. We will never stop our efforts for our artists, audiences, with school children and in our community.

We are looking to you to partner with us as we begin the road back to reopening. We will get through this together, and the Apollo will come back stronger than ever with your support.

With gratitude,

Jonelle
