The Public Plans Revitalization of Central Park’s Delacorte Theater

The Public Plans Revitalization of Central Park’s Delacorte Theater

We’re excited to share that The Public Theater has announced plans to revitalize Central Park’s 56-year old Delacorte Theater, home to The Public’s acclaimed Free Shakespeare in the Park productions and Public Works program.  The project aim is to expand access to the summer programs, not by adding seats to the theater or expanding the theater’s footprint but by adding additional free performances into each season, while also addressing ongoing infrastructural and accessibility challenges that have arisen as the theater has aged and endured years of harsh weather.

Zubatkin is working with The Public, the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) Architects, and the project team on the development of the strategic planning and program.  The firm will subsequently be responsible for managing the design, approvals and construction of the project.  Read more in the NYTimes.
