The Public Theater will now require proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination and booster, effective January 21. The new measures are to protect its performers, personnel, and audiences against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Last month, the Off-Broadway company announced it would expand its policy requiring proof of vaccination to include a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of a show through January 30. The requirement has now expired since there are no planned performances before the new date.
The Under the Radar festival, featuring a number of emerging talents and new works, was scheduled to begin January 12 but was canceled due to the rise of Omicron. Programming at The Public will continue with a variety of cabaret and concert shows at Joe’s Pub, plus the February stagings of The Chinese Lady and Out of Time.
WHAT’S CURRENTLY PLAYING OFF-BROADWAY
As has been the case in recent weeks around the NYC theatre scene, The Public’s policies are subject to change. For more information, visit PublicTheater.org.
