The Clark is located on the northeast side of our campus (see map, above.) The building is air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter.

Many performances at the Clark require tickets to attend. Please check our Calendar of Events for more information.

PMP erects a Performance Tent in July and August to accommodate the large, enthusiastic audience who attend concerts and open rehearsals all summer long. The Tent seats over 400 guests and includes comfortable chairs. Outdoor bathroom facilities are located a short walk from the tent; please follow signs or ask a staff member for directions. As a general rule, rehearsals and performances in the tent are FREE and open to the public, and do not require reservations.

Parking is available around campus, and all buildings are in easy walking distance from the parking areas. Accessible parking is located near the entrances to the Tent and Arts Center. For more information, please call 212.877.5045.
