On June 23, 2021, Stro was one of the many NYC and theater luminaries to sign beams on what will become The Perelman Performing Arts Center at The World Trade Center.
The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC) will constitute a unique venue for theater, dance, music, and chamber opera. It will offer artists new kinds of theatrical design possibilities and new opportunities to create innovative multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work. Located at the World Trade Center, the PAC will celebrate life and humanity, redefining Lower Manhattan as a cultural destination and serving as a living testament to the power of the arts to inspire and unite. A home for creativity, the PAC will produce and present all forms of performance.
Elected mayor of New York City just weeks after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Mike Bloomberg led the work of rebuilding the World Trade Center site and reviving Lower Manhattan. The World Trade Center master plan, approved in 2003, designated a site for a performing arts center. In 2006, Mike began his chairmanship of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and in 2020 became chair of the PAC. The opening of the performing arts center in 2023 is integral to the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site and the continued growth and vitality of Lower Manhattan.
