When Mr. Levy became the new president of Lincoln Center in 2002, New York Magazine described the situation he walked in to as “a community in deep distress, riven by conflict.” They Told Me Not To Take This Job chronicles the story behind the transformation of the sixteen-acre Lincoln Center campus and how Mr. Levy was able to build consensus and raise $1.2 billion to ensure Lincoln Center continued as the country’s most vibrant performing arts destination.
