    Well said. Lincoln Center Theater, since it’s re-opening in 1985–under the guiding hand of the late Bernard Gersten–has always been a class act. It is the one constituent at Lincoln Center that does not seem to be in a constant state of Sturm und Drang, yet they continue to present challenging and popular works for affordable prices. Almost immediately after its inception, it became a force in New York City’s cultural landscape. Live long and prosper!
