The show must go on — and judging by the amount of money flowing from federal and local government, the New York theater industry’s road to recovery could be paved with gold (or at least dollars).

The latest figures from the Small Business Administration (SBA) for the federal Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) program show that 91 organizations in Hell’s Kitchen and the Midtown Theater District have been approved to receive a total of $221,155,213.

Westside Theatre and Little Shop of Horrors both received SVOG funding.

Unlike the Restaurant Revitalization Fund which ran out of money, the SVOG appears to be fully funded to help applicants, although its process has been plagued by delays and technical difficulties.

At the end of last month, the New York Times reported that large shows like Hamilton had received grants of $30 million (see our table below — the organization names are “And Peggy Tour LLC”, “Angelica Tour LLC” and “Hamilton Uptown LLC”). The newspaper reported that the final grant figure might increase to $50 million.

Philip Boroff at Broadway Journal reported that Waitress (which closed in January 2020 before the pandemic) — will now return to Broadway in September for a limited four-month engagement with Sara Bareilles, thanks to a $10m SVOG grant. The national tour of Waitress also received over $7m.

Hamilton survived the winter and the pandemic.

Closer to home, Birdland has been approved for funding of $2,752,504. Back in January, owner Gianni Valenti set a goal of $250,000 to save “The Jazz Corner Of The World”, President Clinton joined a host of celebrities for a benefit concert and GoFundMe campaign that raised over $400,000.

The Westside Theater on W43rd Street between 9/10th Avenue managed to secure funding of $441,655 — and Skid Row Downtown LLC, the production company behind Little Shop of Horrors, which returns to the theater in September, got funding of over $7 million to keep the off-Broadway production going.

Gianni Valenti appealed to save Birdland during the pandemic.

Other winners were Feinstein’s 54 Below (54 Below LLC) $3,575,584, The Town Hall (Town Hall Foundation, Inc.) $2,198,835, Carolines on Broadway (Carolines Entertainment, Inc) $1,611,793, St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble $916,990, Cruel Intentions (Cruel Intentions Worldwide LLC) $342,386 and Tea at Five (Tea At Five On Broadway LLC) $313,988.

In the past week, Corey Johnson announced his final budget as Speaker of the New York City Council. He sponsored spending of over $33 million throughout his west side council district (which includes Hell’s Kitchen, the Theater District, Chelsea and the Village). We calculate that 48.8% of that spend was on theater and the arts, with 22% on parks, 16% on social services and housing and 5% each on LGBTQ+ projects and education.

Roundabout Theater was a beneficiary of both the SVOG fund and Johnson’s budget. The non-profit was granted $10 million by the SVOG, and awarded $2,100,000 by the Speaker for HVAC & fire alarm systems replacements. Roundabout also received another $1m from the City in the Cultural Affairs capital budget.

Out of the $33,382,000 of discretionary capital and expense allocation in Council District 3, we calculate that $9,782,250 (29%) was spent in Chelsea, $4,113,500 (12%) in Hell’s Kitchen, $9,081,250 (27%) in The Village, and $10,086,500 (30%) in the Theater District.

Notable Hell’s Kitchen wins in the budget were $2m for the Irish Arts Center (An Claidheamh Soluis Inc), $446,000 to renovate the Midtown Community Court Courtroom, $300,000 for replacement of the ADA lift at Columbus Branch Library and $105,000 for the Pier 84 Dog Park in Hudson River Park. From 2015 through the current year, Irish Arts Center had $7.5 million funding. The Pier 84 Dog Park had previously received funding of $257,000 in the 2021 budget.

Pier 84 Dog Park — one of the Hell’s Kitchen beneficiaries of Speaker Johnson’s funding.

“Theaters are economic drivers for the entire community, and help drive business to Hell’s Kitchen restaurants, stores, and hotels. They also employ many people in the neighborhood. The Council is proud to support theaters, particularly as they try to rebuild after COVID,” said Council spokeswoman Jennifer Fermino.

“The Speaker is proud of the funding he secured for all of District 3, which includes a total of roughly $7 million in Council expense funding for the three area codes that cover Hell’s Kitchen. In addition to theaters, the Speaker is also supporting the community by increasing funding for services for street homelessness, mental health programs, the LGBTQ community, and affordable housing preservation.”

Fermino told us the Council funded every eligible non-profit that applied for Speaker capital funding this year from Hell’s Kitchen. No one was turned down.

She added that the amount Hell’s Kitchen receives from the City Council will end up even higher. Some $180 million in Council discretionary funding has not been allocated and some of that money will be directed to Hell’s Kitchen. And Fermino pointed out that the $33,382,000 Speaker’s Capital and Discretionary funding referenced in the table below is a fraction of the overall $98.7 billion city budget, which includes much more for the Speaker’s district.

Thank you to Vinay Raval, Sandra Mangan, Kevin McAnarney and the City Councli’s Budget team for their help in sifting through this data. Below are the tables for the local SVOG Funding (as of 7/6/2020) and the NYC Budget FY2022 items for the west side.

  1. Thanks for this Wonderful list. It is so nice to see Corey and the city giving some support to so many of the wonderful Hell’s Kitchen arts groups, venues and social services. These are some of the organizations and places that make Hell’s Kitchen such a special place in the hear and pulse of New York City. Thanks to 42WST and Phil for the constant support and information for our area!
