Joe's Pub

425 Lafayette St, New York City, New York, 10003, United States

Working Hours

The only theater in New York that produces Shakespeare and the classics, musicals, contemporary, and experimental pieces in equal measure, The Public serves as an advocate for the theater as an essential cultural force in leading and framing dialogue on important issues of our day. These core democratic values, set in place by its visionary founder, Joseph Papp, inform all aspects of The Public’s activities. Conceived nearly 60 years ago as one of the nation’s first nonprofit theaters, The Public has served as a model, both in terms of mission and programming, for nonprofit theaters that have blossomed throughout the country since that time. The Public engages one of the largest and most diverse audiences in New York City in a variety of venues—including the Delacorte Theater; its landmark downtown home, which houses five theaters and Joe’s Pub; and the Mobile Shakespeare Unit, which tours Shakespearean productions for undeserved audiences throughout New York City’s five boroughs. The Delacorte Theater in Central Park, the company’s first permanent home, has welcomed more than 5 million people to free performances since 1962. Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival, The Public Theater’s precursor, produced Shakespeare free of charge at various venues—including churches, parks, and the company’s mobile theater unit—beginning in 1954.   Read More
