Every year we celebrate people whose work and values reflect our own as a company and inspire us to do better.
The presentation of the M. Edgar Rosenblum Award is our way of acknowledging these individuals who make our world a little more beautiful.

Your gift will support: the next big Ensemble production, our Youth Programs and To Protect, Serve and Understand - the groundbreaking program where police officers and civilians learn to communicate through theatre. And because we believe that art is so necessary to the life and health of a community we will make all tickets as close to being FREE, as we possibly can. New York City budget cuts have taken a chunk out of our budget and the only way we can make them up at this point in the year is with your help.
