Proceeds from the evening will help to support The Public's mission of providing a home for artists who give voice to the pressing issues of our time, provide access to thousands of New Yorkers with free and low-priced tickets to Shakespeare in the Park and other groundbreaking works, and strengthen the vital relationship between our artists and audience.

The Public Theater’s Annual Gala at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park features cocktails and dinner alfresco, a one-night-only star studded performance, and a post-performance dessert reception.
