Click below for video introductions to the Public's upcoming Winter/Spring selections, including Compulsion, Timon of Athens, and Tony Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures.

In Compulsion, it is 1951 and Sid Silver (Mandy Patinkin) is on a mission to be the guardian of one of the most moving and provocative accounts of the 20th century. Deeply moved by Anne Frank's diary, he is driven to bring her story to the American masses by promoting the book's publication and adapting the diary into a work of theater. Inspired by the story of Meyer Levin, Compulsion brings playwright Rinne Groff and The Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis (The Ruby Sunrise) together again with a complex and inventive telling that is part historical fiction, part investigation into what makes a man obsess, and part exploration of an untold dimension of Anne Frank's powerful and enduring legacy.

Timon of Athens is Shakespeare's play for the post-Bailout Age. Its central concern--money's dark potential to corrupt every human interaction--couldn't be more timely or fascinating. As one of Shakespeare's least-familiar works, it is also one of his most unique: a comedy written with an acid pen, a morality tale told in a fury.

Tickets are just $15! Call 212-967-7555, CLICK HERE, or visit The Public Theater Box Office, 425 Lafayette Street

In Homosexual's Guide, it is the summer of 2007, Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman and cousin of the late Congressman Vito Marcantonio, summons his three adult children to the family's Brooklyn brownstone - to vote on the question of his committing suicide. The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures explores revolution, radicalism, marriage, sex, prostitution, politics, real estate, unions of all kinds and debts both unpaid and unpayable.
