American Songbook: A Place You Belong

April 1–21, 2023

New York City has never been only one place. It is five boroughs, hundreds of neighborhoods, and thousands of distinctive communities with their own unique culture centers. It is in these dance clubs and music halls where we have always met to learn the truest things about each other, where we sing, laugh, and dream the future into life together. For American Songbook: A Place You Belong, with the guidance of the writer, filmmaker, producer, and multiple Tony Award-winning director George C. Wolfe, four of NYC's influential but long-lost performance spaces and dance clubs will be resurrected on the Lincoln Center campus. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to turn back the clock and experience the thrill of a visit to Midtown's Latin jazz mecca, the Palladium Ballroom; SoHo's pioneering disco, Paradise Garage; Harlem's home of the Lindy Hop, the Savoy Ballroom; and the West Village's historically significant cabaret, Café Society, with shows spotlighting modern performers honoring the traditions of these iconic venues.
