Fodor's Review

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