The Public Theater offers affordable, well-produced live theater. Their productions of Shakespeare in the Park are a must, but as the previous reviewer noted, it can be a chore to get tickets to this. Their permanent venue is an architectural gem near NYU. The adjacent, associated Joe's Pub is an intimate setting for live music. Tickets for performances here are often in the $20 range. There are large sofas to sit on and cabaret dining up in front. Keep an eye on their website.

As the previous reviewer mentioned there are long lines to get these precious tickets, but if you look at their web site you can find when they give out tickets in the boro's , the lines are shorter , but the times varies you have to check the website. I love these plays they are free, the actors can be famous stars , sometimes you can get seat in front , and I love shakespeare too.

The Public Theatre holds Shakepeare in the Park every summer at the Delacorte Theater and savvy New Yorkers lineup for hours for free tickets. This is not community theater.You'll frequently see famous movie stars trying to prove they have stage chops as well as well known Broadway actors. There next play is Two Gentlemen Of Verona done as a musical with Rosario Dawson. The line usually starts around 5 am in the Park and you get same day tickets only. If it rains your tix are no good. Google Public Theatre if you want more info. One of the City's great traditions.

PROS: Free Stars, Shakespeare
CONS: Long lines, bug bites
