Welcome to Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC)

In celebration of our Inaugural Season, we have invited some of the most compelling talents in theater, music, and dance to work with us and with each other. Together we’ll create and present new works that bring our state-of-the-art building to life, here in the global capital of performing arts.

Within our intimate, reconfigurable theaters, we will connect artists and communities through ambitious yet accessible programming. From World Premiere commissions, to free daily performances on our Lobby Stage, to project-based Civic Alliances with community organizations citywide, PAC NYC celebrates the diversity and humanity of New York City.

Our commitment to bringing people together extends across the five boroughs and to the entire world. We are mindful that individuals from 93 countries lost their lives on 9/11, and we are committed to affirming life and celebrating community. Our building, glowing from within at night, is a true beacon of hope. And our location at the World Trade Center is a vibrant transportation hub, bringing people together on 13 subway lines, the PATH train, and the Staten Island ferry.

We are excited to join our peer arts organizations across the city in welcoming all New Yorkers: from first time participants to seasoned enthusiasts.

The dream of bringing a new home for the performing arts to Lower Manhattan has been a long time coming. PAC NYC stands as a testament to the power of the arts to inspire and unite us all. We are so excited to finally invite the world in.

With joyful gratitude,
