For many years, the Lincoln Center Theatre Company has had a need to supplement the Vivian Beaumont and the Mitzi Newhouse spaces with a small, less formal performance space.

In February 2010, Lincoln Center Theatre announced plans to construct an addition on the roof of the Vivian Beaumont Theater. This addition will include the Claire Tow Theater, rehearsal rooms, office space and a roof terrace. The theatre is the new home of LCT3, the programming initiative devoted to producing the work of emerging playwrights, directors and designers.

Through mounting fully staged, modestly budgeted productions, LCT3 is bringing a new generation of artists and audiences to Lincoln Center.
