The Public Theater's special, one-night-only event, A BRIEF INTERMISSION, was held on Wednesday, September 6 at 7:00 p.m. at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park. BroadwayWorld was there and you can check out photos below!

The evening, a celebration of the venue's illustrious 61-year history and upcoming revitalization, featured the Tony Award-winning hip-hop, improv, musical comedy group Freestyle Love Supreme, conceived by Anthony Veneziale and created by Thomas KailLin-Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale.

Freestyle Love Supreme was joined by creator Miranda, Tony nominee Christopher Jackson, and other special surprise guests throughout the evening. 

A BRIEF INTERMISSION served as the final performance at The Delacorte before it is temporarily closed for an 18-month renovation-the largest in its history-before it returns as a more accessible theater for all in 2025.
