Public Works' Let's Hear it for New York!
An Unforgettable Dance Experience

As a part of PUBLIC POPS UP! this summer, Public Works will be hosting a participatory dance piece set to Alicia Keys’ seminal classic “Empire State of Mind” from the Original Cast Recording of the Broadway musical HELL’S KITCHEN, which originated at The Public in the fall of 2023. The city-wide initiative will be choreographed by HELL’S KITCHEN’s four-time Tony-nominated director/choreographer Camille A. Brown and her initiative Every Body Move, directed by Public Works’ Laurie Woolery, will be the ultimate celebration of New York, bringing together folks of many ages and abilities. The experience will culminate in a performance both by and for New Yorkers on Monday, August 12 at 6:00PM. Following the initiative, there will be a screening of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at dusk as a part of Central Park Conservancy's 2024 Film Festival, sponsored by National Geographic Partners, LLC.

Expanding Public Works’ 12-year tradition of bringing together New Yorkers from all over the city, we’re inviting YOU to be a part of an ambitious, participatory dance piece in Central Park on August 12. Sharing the vision of the Broadway production of HELL’S KITCHEN that celebrates a community unified through song and dance, Public Works will activate the entire city of New York into a shared celebration of radical civic pride through LET’S HEAR IT FOR NEW YORK! An Unforgettable Dance Experience.
