The Lambs is America's First Professional Theatrical Organization, a private club established in New York in 1874, nurturing those active in the arts, as well as those who are supporters of the arts, by providing fellowship, activities and a clubhouse for its members. Established in 1874, The Lambs is a social gathering place for entertainment industry and art professionals, a historical society, and a spawning ground of plays, with Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain Tonight and Stalag 17 first performed at The Lambs. Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe first met at the Club and teamed to make theatrical history - as a result Fred Loewe bequeathed a portion of his royalities to The Lambs Foundation. Other members past and present include Fred Astaire, John Barrymore, Irving Berlin, Jim Dale, W.C. Fields, Ken Howard, Bert Lahr, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Cliff Robertson, Will Rogers, Cliff Robertson and John Philip Sousa, Bert Wheeler, the Hon.
