The New York 11th Congressional District candidates’ debate, featuring U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan and Max Rose, is tonight in the Center for the Arts (1P) Williamson Theatre.

  • Please arrive early for the event. Doors open at 5:00pm. The event is sold out and ticket-holders entering the venue will pass through a metal detector; consequently, delays may occur. If you arrive late, you will not be seated in the Williamson Theatre for the live broadcast, but instead be directed to Room 119, where the broadcast will be projected.
  • Doors close at 6:30pm. As indicated, people holding tickets who arrive late will be seated in Room 119 to watch the live broadcast of the debate. If you do not have a ticket, and you have a Dolphin Card, you are invited to watch the debate in Room 119 (you must show your Dolphin Card to enter). Doors to Room 119 will open at 6:3pm – a class occupies the room until 6:20pm.
