I FOUND A TICKET TO ONE OF YOUR SHOWS ON STUBHUB OR ANOTHER THIRD-PARTY RESALE WEBSITE, IS IT VALID?
As a reminder to all - official tickets for The Public Theater and Joe’s Pub performances are available only by purchasing/donating through our website at publictheater.org, calling Audience Services at 212.967.7555, or by visiting our Box Offices. Please be wary of any other sites claiming to sell tickets to our events. We do not endorse third-party sites, and we cannot guarantee or verify the validity of any tickets purchased in this way. If entry into our venues is attempted with an illegitimate ticket or one obtained under fraudulent circumstances, we will not honor it. Even if money has been exchanged between you and a non-endorsed sales channel. The Public is not financially responsible for any monetary loss you incur.
The Public Theater is a non-profit organization that relies on the financial support of generous donors and ticket sales. Although we strongly discourage third-party sales, it is legal in New York, but within the law's limits: Ticket resellers must be licensed and bonded by the state. Regardless of licensure, one cannot resell tickets within 1500 feet of the venue. Regardless of licensure, one must issue a refund if the purchaser cannot go to the event through no fault of their own.
