The Public Theater

Founded by legendary director Joseph Papp, this famous venue presents new and provocative plays year-round and also stages Shakespeare in the Park, a New York treasure, every summer. The Public is the epitome of downtown cool: $20 rush tickets are often available an hour prior to performances, the sleek lobby offers great people-watching and Joe's Pub, located within the venue, is home to some of the City’s best music shows in a relaxed, bohemian space.
