Death Takes a Holiday - It's just after the first World War and the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young Prince, and for the first time experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life. But when he unexpectedly falls in love with a newly engaged young woman, the mysterious stranger discovers that love may in fact be stronger than death.

The Devil's Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith - Sexy and racy, blues singer Bessie Smith was the definition of a Red Hot Mamma and the most successful entertainer of her time. On the eve of her tragic death in 1937, Bessie takes center stage and tells the story of her amazing life and career, her loves and losses. Put your troubles aside and soak up the blues as Bessie Smith comes to life and sings the songs that made her so unforgettable, including “St. Louis Blues,” “Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl,” and “Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out.”

Little Doc - Set in 1970's Brooklyn, in the living room of a one-bedroom apartment under the "el" and above a tiny neighborhood bar, Little Doc centers on four childhood friends who find themselves in a life-threatening situation that challenges the validity of the virtues they've adopted from a sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll culture.

Sex Lives of Our Parents - Virginia is getting married. As her wedding day approaches, unwanted ghosts of her mother's past appear, unearthing a shocking past she never knew - nor wanted to. A provocative comic nightmare about the mysterious hollows between parents and children and things that may be better left unsaid.

Shakespeare in the Park - The Public Theater's 2011 Shakespeare in the Park season is once again comprised of two of Shakespeare’s celebrated works: All's Well That Ends Well and Measure for Measure, which will run in repertory from June 6th through July 31st. All's Well That Ends Well is a fairy tale for grown-ups – a beguiling fable following the low-born Helena, one of Shakespeare's most resourceful heroines, as she surmounts obstacle after impossible obstacle to win the love of the aristocratic and haughty Count Bertram; meanwhile Measure for Measure sweeps from the corridors of national power to the intimate confines of the bedroom and from the convent's chapel to the executioner's block: a bracing and bawdy glimpse of what happens when those in power allow their basest human impulses to range unchecked. Tickets for Shakespeare in the Park are distributed via the free lines at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, and on the web via the Public’s Virtual Ticketing system.
