Please consider making a donation in Honor of Emily Mann and in support of McCarter Theatre.

Your gift will make a difference to our ability to return to our mission driven work once this crisis is over.

Tonight we celebrated Emily Mann with a live, virtual tribute.

Thank you to all who joined us as we took a look back on the last 30 years, featuring live speakers and performances. #HonoringEmily




Artistic Director and Resident Playwright

 Last year, Emily Mann announced that the 2019-2020 season will be her final turn as McCarter Theatre Center's Artistic Director and Resident Playwright. A champion for new voices and committed to holistic community engagement, Mann has been a transformative force for McCarter and the surrounding community.


In addition to being dedicated to her community, Mann elevated McCarter's standing nationally. The winner of the 1994 Regional Theatre Tony Award and the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play (Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike), McCarter has become a leader in the American regional theater movement under her leadership.


This year, Mann was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame in recognition of her significant contributions to the field.


On May 2, 2020, McCarter will recognize Emily's legacy as an arts leader and as a playwright by re-naming the McCarter LAB in her honor. Many playwrights-emerging and established-have developed new work in the McCarter LAB, including Christopher Durang's Tony Award-winning Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, Pulitzer Prize winner Anna and The Tropics by Nilo Cruz, and Danai Gurira's Eclipsed.  The LAB has commissioned many artists, including established and emerging playwrights.




Prior to the COVID Pandemic, we had planned to host a traditional Gala, however world events have made that impossible.

We thank our Gala supporters, many of whom converted their tickets into a gift for general operations. Your generosity has helped us weather the first phase of this crisis.
