Restart Stages at Lincoln Center

From April–September 2021, we welcomed audiences to Restart Stages at Lincoln Center—an outdoor performing arts center with 10 performance and rehearsal spaces—to help kickstart the performing arts sector and New York City’s revival. Fostering a dynamic environment for artists, community organizations, and audiences, Restart Stages was a welcoming and safe place for live performances, family activities, and civic engagement. Restart Stages was part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative, a collaboration that reimagines and reactivates public space for a new era.

While Restart Stages at Lincoln Center is now over, the summer's incredible performances will live on—on-demand! Over 200 artists and productions took the stage, and we're happy to share a collection of them with you. Enjoy these musical concerts, provocative discussions, family shows, and spoken word for the first time, or re-live the experience.
