Fodor's Review

Fresh theater, such as Here Lies Love, David Byrne's and Fatboy Slim's "poperetta" about Imelda Marcos, keep people talking about the Public Theater. Many noted productions that began here (Hair, A Chorus Line) went on to Broadway. Some shows offer limited-availability $20 rush standby tickets at the box office one hour before curtain (two tickets max; cash only). Check online for available performances.
