Restart Stages at Lincoln Center
Welcome back! We're thrilled to invite you to Restart Stages at Lincoln Center—an outdoor performing arts center with 10 outdoor 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 is a welcoming and safe place for live performances, family activities, and civic engagement. Restart Stages is part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative, a collaboration that reimagines and reactivates public space for a new era.
Throughout the summer, audiences are invited to enjoy performances by Lincoln Center, its resident organizations, cultural and community arts partners, and guest curators from across the five boroughs. Day-of general admission tickets are available for all performances (entry not guaranteed). Free tickets are also made available through the TodayTix Lottery, the Official Ticketing Partner of Restart Stages. The TodayTix Lottery opens for entries two weeks before each performance.
Health and safety is our top priority. In accordance with the New York State guidelines and in consultation with our medical advisors, we have implemented protocols to enhance safety for all staff, artists and guests. Click here to learn more about our health and safety guidelines »
