54 Below mission statement
At 54 Below, our mission is to preserve and expand the art of the cabaret while providing an unparalleled audience experience. We’re committed to growing opportunities for diverse communities of emerging and established artists and to expanding their audiences. We aim to present work that is vivid, immediate, enlightening and entertaining that reflects the world around us and the imagination of the artists. We honor the cabaret tradition and the music and community of Broadway by pursuing excellence in content, performance, hospitality and cuisine.
54 below initiatives
At 54 Below, we have been and remain committed to opening our doors to an economically diverse audience of all ages and backgrounds. In furtherance of that, over the past ten years, we distributed a limited but significant quantity of discounted and complimentary tickets in an effort to increase accessibility for our audience.
Our Ticket Subsidy Initiative provides funds to allow us to continue and expand these efforts to welcome new audiences to Broadway’s Living Room in two ways.
The first component of the Ticket Subsidy Initiative is our 35 Below membership, which offers discounted tickets to audience members under 35 years of age. Benefits include tickets $35 (includes $4.50 in fees) or less for select shows, complimentary ticket offers throughout the year, a free virtual membership card, and more to be announced.

Additionally, we are continuing to offer $15 tickets to most of the 600 shows presented annually at 54 Below, with the goal of eventually being able to offer this across all performances.
The Ticket Subsidy Initiative increases accessibility for audience members who otherwise may not be able to cover the full cost of attending a performance at 54 Below.
