The Public Theater is seeking one full-time intern in the New Work Development Department, which is responsible for the cultivation and shepherding of new plays and musicals at the Public Theater and Joe’s Pub.



Duties include but are not limited to facilitating telephone, email and other correspondence, attending and evaluating new plays and musicals on behalf of the Department. Other duties will be assigned as needed to support the Director of New Work Development and the New Work Department.


Candidates should possess exceptional written communication skills, be highly organized and detail oriented, and appreciate the fast-pace of a professional theater environment.
