Named for the Public Theater’s founder Joe Papp, the cabaret space opened in 1998 inside the Public Theater building at 425 Lafayette Street, just downtown from Astor Place in Manhattan. The eclectic booking policy extends to plays, bands, monologists, and acts that don’t fall into traditional categories.
