Actor Mandy Pantinkin read lines from Shakespeare as Oscar Eustis, the Public Theater’s artistic director, cracked up, left, and playwright Richard Foreman listened during the rededication of the Public Theater following its four-year renovation. The $40 million project included a controversial sidewalk “bump-out” into one lane of Lafayette St. to accommodate a new grand staircase entranceway. The Public hopes the staircase becomes a “town square.” The city paid for nearly two-thirds of the renovation’s cost.
