If you had tickets for a cancelled show or event, we have automatically transferred the full value of your ticket purchase to your On Account Funds, which you can confirm the amount of in your Public Theater Account.

Please consider donating the value of your tickets in support of The Public Theater fundraising efforts. Your support will benefit our artists and staff and keep us moving forward until we can all be together again in all of our theaters.

If you cannot donate, we can continue to hold the funds in your Public Theater Account, much like a gift certificate, which can be applied to any future production or event you choose. 

We thank you for your donation consideration but also acknowledge this situation is affecting everyone differently. If you would like a full refund, let us know by emailing We hope you'll consider joining us again when we can return to our theaters and venues at The Public and The Delacorte. Together is how The Public has always moved forward. Together is how we will meet this moment and thrive, thanks to your ongoing support.
