About Public Forum

Public Forum brings together surprising combinations of artists, audiences, and experts to explore the issues and ideas raised on our stages.

Join us online and in-person for one-of-a-kind events with some of the most original thinkers of today.

Now in its eighth season, Public Forum is also the home of The Public’s audience engagement activities, which include Artist Talkbacks, Audience Conversations, Speaker Series panels, and the online resource Digiturgy.

In Artist Talkbacks, members of the cast and creative team will take questions from the audience about the show and their process following selected performances during the season. Speaker Series presents 20-to-30-minute panel discussions after the performance with experts discussing a topic from the show and Audience Conversations feature a member of The Public’s artistic staff leading the audience in a conversation with each other about the show and its themes and ideas. 

The Philip and Janice Levin Foundation provides lead support for The Public’s access and engagement programming. The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust provides leadership support for The Public Theater’s year-round activities.
