The David Rubenstein Atrium, the public space on Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets that offers discount Lincoln Center tickets and hosts free performances, will ramp it up in 2016. The venue will approximately double the number of concerts and performances, the Times reports.

Whereas the public space typically hosts about 80 free performances and talks per year, it will now put on nearly 150 — all of them with free admission. Its concert series, previously sponsored by Target, has been rebranded as Atrium 360°, and Lincoln Center has also added four new programs: “The History of the World in 100 Performances with Adam Gopnik,” “LC Dialogues,” “LC Originals” and “Late Nights at the Atrium.”

Jed Bernstein, the president of Lincoln Center, says the organization is trying to reach even more people with its prodigious resources. Check out the full schedule here.

      Cool. The more free cultural events the merrier. Great. That’s true NYC values.

      Note to Ted Cruz: Don’t like NYC values. Fuggedaboutit! We don’t like your values either.
