We saw "An Act of God," and it was a treat! We sat near the stage, on one side, and really enjoyed the experience. Good fun!

Recently saw " Death of a Salesman " at this facility. It is first rate. All the seats are great. Not a bad one in the house. Sound was great. The production was also first rate. I will be returning to this venue.

Have seen multiple performances at the Public Theater and have never been disappointed. This is a true cultural gem in the city with easy access and very reasonable prices. There are no bad seats and the shows rival anything you can find in major cities.
