The Shed, Playwrights Horizons, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Signature Theatre and Russian Samovar are among 50 new arts organizations that have received cash from the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) program.
Our first report in mid-July outlined that 91 organizations in our area had been approved to receive a total of $221,155,213 SVOG funds. We later updated this with another 46 venues and an additional $161,679,943 of funding. Now a further $106,849,254 has been granted locally.
Broadway productions again headed the list, with Hadestown getting the maximum award of $10 million and Book of Mormon receiving a grant of $9.8 million. The Ladies Who Lunch LLC — which runs the Broadway revival of Company — received $9,897,200. Company was in previews when COVID struck and Philip Boroff at Broadway Journal reported in February that the Stephen Sondheim and George Furth musical received $8.85 million from Chubb as an insurance payout.
The New 42nd Street Inc received $5.9 million in the latest round of payouts — other W42nd Street beneficiaries were Playwrights Horizons ($2.1m) and Signature Theatre ($1.2m).
The off-Broadway production of Jersey Boys at New World Stages (JB New World L.P.) was awarded $4.8 million. Jazz at Lincoln Center received $3.1 million in the latest payouts — last month we reported that Birdland had been approved for funding of $2,752,504.
The biggest award in the gallery/museum sector was The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) with the maximum $10 million, and the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) with $1.1m. Not on our list (as it has a 10001 zip code) is The Shed — the Hudson Yards arts center was granted $4,112,383.
Smaller local arts organizations also had success with their applications. Eryc Taylor Dance received $43,870 and Vlada Von Shats at the Russian Samovar (Von Shats Production Inc) was given a lifeline of $174,376. Back in April, we reported that Von Shats had launched a GoFundMe for the venue filled with three generations of New York history. Baryshnikov dated SJP in Sex and the City there. Forbes says that it “is as much a nostalgia trip as a fine Russian restaurant.”
The US Small Business Administration reported yesterday that they had so far awarded 10,826 grants totaling $8.4bn. The average grant awarded has been $779K.
