The Theater community has been letting their voices heard to save some of our notable performing spaces in New York City that has been coping with serious financial troubles due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of those spaces is New York's West Bank Cafe and The Laurie Beechman Theatre. As previously mentioned, a GoFundMe Fundraising campaign was released and succeeded with Theater supporting helping raise over $50K.
Despite succeeding, there is still more fundraising efforts to keep the beloved 42nd Street Restaurant and Cabaret venue stronger than ever.
