    The design by David Rockwell draws its inspiration from the building's original use as the city's first public library. Vintage elements like distressed leather chairs, industrial, steel-frame bookcases along the perimeter and a Parisian rug at the room's center invoke a welcoming, lived-in sense, while artifacts from past productions pay homage to the great performances of past, present and future.


    Outside of The Library, consider the Lobby of the Public Theater for larger cocktail parties, the Lobby Balcony for smaller groups or our stage at Joe's Pub for live entertainment.
