News   Public Theater Launches New Membership Program in Place of Subscription Series
 
The Public Theater is forgoing the standard theatre practice of selling theatregoers full-season subscriptions, opting for a more flexible new membership program for the 2010-2011 season.

The new memberships, priced at $55, will allow patrons the chance to purchase tickets only for the shows they want — at a discounted rate of $40 — prior to the on-sale date to the general public. Tickets to the New York premiere of Tony Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key To The Scriptures will be available for $20. Members are limited to purchasing one ticket per show at the standard discount. However, a 15 percent discount is available to members for additional tickets. Priority booking will also be available for the Public LAB and the Under the Radar Festival, which have given birth to such works as The Good Negro, Neighbors and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.

As previously reported, the Public Theater 2010-11 season will include Elevator Repair Service's Gatz; In The Wake by Lisa Kron; The Tricycle Theatre Company's The Great Game: Afghanistan; Rinne Groff's Compulsion; Kushner’s The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide…; and The Motherf**ker With The Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis.

For memberships phone (212) 967-7555 or visit PublicTheater.

The Public Theater is located at 425 Lafayette Street in Manhattan.
