The biggest performance spaces at Lincoln Center won’t be holding indoor performances until at least the Fall, but the performing arts center will be holding shows and events in a different way starting in April.

Linco0ln Center’s initiative is called “Restart Stages” and it will include outdoor concerts, ceremonies and even blood drives on its 16-acre campus.

Restart Stages venues will include:

  • A cabaret-style stage on Hearst Plaza
  • Dedicated family and kids’ areas with arts activities for young people
  • Venues for rehearsals, opening up the artistic process to visitors
  • Space for public school graduations, recognizing the extraordinary achievements of students under difficult circumstances
  • An outdoor reading room, created in partnership with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts

It all starts on April 7 with a special concert for healthcare workers.

Lincoln Center started experimenting with outdoor performances last year.

The program’s website is here, and should soon include a schedule.
