Single tickets may be purchased at The Public Theater Box Office at 425 Lafayette Street; online at www.publictheater.org or by phone at 212-967-7555.

For the first time, this acclaimed annual festival will take place entirely at The Public Theater's home on Lafayette Street. A late night Festival Lounge in The Public's lobby and Shiva Theater for artists and audiences to gather after performances will also be offered. During the festival, where more than 90 performances will be presented in a 12-day marathon of theater, The Library at The Public will also be open nightly for food and drink, beginning at 5:30 p.m., and Joe's Pub will continue to offer some of the best music in the city.

The Festival Lounge, located in The Public's Shiva Theater and newly revitalized lobby, will offer a place for patrons and artists of the festival to come together, create new connections, and exchange ideas. The lounge will also feature DJs and a cash bar beginning Thursday, January 10 at 9:30 p.m. to late night. Dates of the lounge are January 10-14 and 17-20, 9:30 p.m. to late night.
