Travel back in time to 1962, when Jet Age fever electrified the country and architect Eero Saarinen's instantly iconic Trans World Airlines terminal opened at what is now John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. The landmark has taken off once again as the TWA Hotel, where a flight of fancy awaits you! Spend the day exploring one of the World's Greatest Places (as named by TIME magazine): play a life-size game of Twister, get behind the wheel of a retro Fiat Jolly 500 and enjoy the nostalgic clacking of a classic Solari split-flap message board. Catch sunset - and prime views of JFK's Runway 4 Left/22 Right - from the rooftop observation deck (don't forget to dip into the heated infinity pool, open year-round!). Time for a beverage? Head to the tarmac and board Connie, the hotel's 1958 Lockheed Constellation airplane-turned-cocktail lounge. Your first-class seats are ready - not to mention your martinis! Later, dine à deux at renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Paris Café (we hear the truffle pizza is the bee's knees). Then retire to your room and dim the cabin lights, you'll wake refreshed and ready for a quick workout at TWA Fitness (or at least some souvenir shopping) before reluctantly returning to the 21st Century.
Includes overnight accommodation for two, VIP pool access, cocktails for two at Connie Bar, and dinner for two at Paris Café. Subject to availability. Dates to be mutually agreed by auction winner and property.

For this first time in one of The Public Theater auctions, we have found exclusive props from the original production of HAMILTON! Read the intimate letters that were sent from Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth (Eliza) Schuyler. Bid on this package to own two letters from the production that Eliza was romantically given from Hamilton in "Helpless" and sorrowfully burned in "Burn".
Fun fact: Eliza only burns one letter in the show during "Burn"! While it looks like the rest of the letters are put into the "fire", the coal scuttle bucket is divided inside to keep the live flame separated, so the other letters she puts in aren't actually burnt.

Win two (2) premium tickets to The Public Theater's original production of SUFFS - a musical event over one hundred years in the making! Bid on this opportunity to see this historic world premiere, including a virtual meet and greet with SUFFS playwright and composer Shaina Taub, who portrays the activist Alice Paul in the production. Winner will also get an autographed copy of sheet music from one of the show's many songs!
SUFFS brings to life a complicated chapter in the ongoing battle for the right to vote: the American women's suffrage movement. Written by and featuring one of the most exciting new voices in theater, Shaina Taub, this epic new musical takes an unflinching look at the unsung trailblazers of this struggle. In the years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, an impassioned group of suffragists - "Suffs" as they called themselves - took to the streets with pioneering protest tactics that transformed the country. They risked their lives as they clashed with the president, the public, and each other. A thrilling story of brilliant, flawed women working against and across generational, racial, and class divides, SUFFS explores the victories and failures of a fight for equality that is still far from over.
Valid for two (2) premium seats to a performance of SUFFS, expected to premiere in March 2022. Meet and greet dates must be agreed upon by all parties. Performance tickets are subject to availability. If a performance is cancelled for any reason, tickets will not be honored. Tickets are not valid for Opening Nights or other event evenings.
