American Express provides unparalleled access to live theater events, from preferred access to award-winning shows and actor-led discussions to today’s “Anthems of Pride” concert. The outdoor performances from some of Broadway’s biggest shows were part of New York’s celebration of NYC Pride Weekend.

In a partnership between Playbill, Times Square Alliance, and American Express, excerpts from highly acclaimed hits including “Kimberly Akimbo,” “&Juliet,” “Shucked,” “Some Like It Hot,” and “Hamilton” were performed outside in front of a live audience. These shows, among others, are available to American Express Card Members with exclusive access to more than 40 top U.S. productions across New York’s Broadway and off-Broadway theaters – and shows in other cities around the world.

“Amex has been a longstanding supporter of the Broadway and theater community. I’m proud we’re able to offer so many incredible benefits for Card Members to help make their experience watching any of our sponsored stage shows even more special for them, from presale ticket access and preferred seating to exclusive talkbacks with cast members and more,” said Kristina Hunt, Vice President of Sponsorship Assets, Benefits & Operations at American Express.

Our overall commitment to supporting a vibrant Broadway and theater culture goes back more than a half century. In the 1980s, the Amex Gold Card Events program helped pave the way to expanded Card Member benefits such as preferred seating launched in the ‘80s.

Encouraging Card Members to experience the joy and enrichment of theater arts has also meant increasing access opportunities for all communities – a mission which dates to 1979 when the American Express Card provided greater exposure to performances by diverse off-Broadway theater companies.

We also continue to advance our work with the Black Theatre Coalition, a nonprofit organization focused on increasing employment opportunities for Black theater professionals both on and off stage.
