Audience Protocols & Ticket Policy.

Audience Protocols: 

We are excited to welcome you back to The Public’s flagship home at Astor Place. Our audience policy currently requires complete Covid-19 vaccination by the date of attendance for access into the facility, theaters, and restaurant. Complete vaccination is fourteen days following a final dose of the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, or Astra-Zeneca vaccine. We are not able to accept any negative Covid test results for entry.

We will accept proof of vaccination via Health Pass by CLEAR, Excelsior Pass, the NYC Covid Safe Pass, a copy or photo of your CDC vaccination card, and/or a copy or photo of an official immunization record from outside the United States. 

Approved face masks will be required at all times, including while watching a performance, except while actively eating and drinking. 

Public Theater staff and artists are subject to a mandatory vaccination policy. 

For complete health and safety protocols, visit Safe At The Public. 

Any audience member seeking an accommodation should email us at  for more details about our current policy.

Ticket Policy:

If you are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 within 14 days of your visit, or been instructed to self-isolate within the last 10 days, we ask that you stay home and contact us, when possible, to discuss ticket refund or exchange options.

We recognize that public health guidelines may change in the coming months and ask for your patience as we make any necessary safety adjustments. We also ask that you do your part to protect yourself and others by reviewing and agreeing to the attendance protocols before attending the facility.

Thank you so much. We can’t wait to welcome you back to The Public!
