The Lambs, America's First Professional Theatrical Club, established in New York in 1874, is considered the oldest professional theatrical organization in America. Historically, The Lambs has been the spawning ground of plays, friendships and partnerships. "Mark Twain Tonight" (with Hal Holbrook) and "Stalag 17" were first performed at The Lambs prior to national success. Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe first met at the Club and teamed to make theatrical history, often trying works-in-progress on their fellow Lambs. The Lambs has been recognized by former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and by Pope John Paul II.

Members of The Lambs were involved in the formation of The Actors' Fund of America, ASCAP, Actors' Equity, Screen Actors Guild and SAG-AFTRA. Some of its most notable members include Fred Astaire, Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, W.C. Fields, Ken Howard, Will Rogers, John Philip Sousa, Spencer Tracy, and thousands more. Current luminaries include Joyce Randolph ("Trixie" of "The Honeymooners"), Donald Pippin, and Jim Dale.
