The Public Theater has launched a new, state-of-the-art website that builds upon the recent revitalization of The Public's downtown home at Astor Place. The new website will officially launch on March 27 after a limited soft-launch period.

The new site is made possible by The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, a longtime funder. The trust's grant supports the creation and implementation of innovative, field-leading business strategies for The Public Theater and helps ensure the future viability of the institution.

The site establishes a dynamic and engaging digital home at Publictheater.org that allows The Public to showcase all programs and events in one digital space, with separate websites joespub.com, shakespeareinthepark.org, and others seamlessly incorporated into the institution's main website. Built in Responsive Design, the website features easy access to details about all events and productions in every venue.

"We are extremely grateful to The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust for their unwavering support and generosity," said Executive Director Patrick Willingham. "Our new website, Publictheater.org, is just one example of how the Trust is helping The Public enter the next phase of its life as a sustainable, mission driven institution."
