The Public Legacy Circle.

Guided by the principle that art belongs to everyone, The Public Theater has championed free expression and shared extraordinary theater with the world for over 60 years. From the magical tradition of Free Shakespeare in the Park to the canon of groundbreaking American theater we have nurtured through the decades, The Public’s legacy of revolutionary and inclusionary art is only possible thanks to the generosity of community members like you. Through membership, patronage, and ticket purchases – year after year – you have built a theater that is truly of, by, and for all people.

To ensure that this cultural cornerstone will thrive for generations to come, we ask you to join The Public Legacy Circle by making a planned gift to The Public Theater. By declaring your intention to support The Public as part of your legacy, you join those committed to safeguarding the uplifting community engagement initiatives, exquisite artistic productions, and vital civic activities that form the core of our mission and values.
