Support the Public
Since the days of Joseph Papp, a distinct group of individuals have partnered with us to help produce The Public's diverse array of productions and programs. Since over 75% of the annual budget comes from the generosity of our donors, your support helps ensure the development and expansion of The Public's unique, challenging productions, educational initiatives, and free and reduced cost programming.
