The legendary “Public Theater” in New York City is getting a $40 million face-lift .
The non-profit theatre based in downtown Manhattan has a new exterior, refurbished lobby, upgraded dressing rooms and expanded restrooms…which received the biggest cheer from the guests at a ceremony this week.
And those guests included Vanessa Redgrave and Mandy Patinkin.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg was there too.
He joined other speakers reading snippets from Shakespeare plays and enjoying the revival cast of “Hair” serenading the crowd with a rendition of “Let the Sun Shine..”
The project is expected to take four years.
