  • New York City’s Public Theater — the company behind Trump assassination Julius Caesar— has received nearly $30 million in federal, state, and city grants since 2009, according to a report.
  • The theater reportedly pays three of its employees well over $300,000 each, according to IRS990 disclosures.

 

From Breitbart:

New York City’s Public Theater — the company behind this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, which depicts the assassination and brutal stabbing of a stand-in for President Donald Trump — has received nearly $30 million in federal, state, and city grants since 2009, according to a report.

Data published by OpenTheBooks CEO and Forbes contributor Andrew Andrzejewski reveals that the New York Shakespeare Festival, which appears to be the name of the entity operating Shakespeare in the Park, has received some $4.1 million in federal, state, and city grants in just the past three years.

“Posted OpenTheBooks.com data reveals that state and city agencies gave the largest amounts of government grants to NYSF,” wrote Andrzejewski, whose OpenTheBooks.com mines a database of 3.5 billion captured government transactions at the federal, state, and local levels.

“Since 2010, New York City gave NYSF $23.5 million to build and renovate their public theater and funded an additional $5 million as ‘payments to cultural institutions.’” Andrzejewski wrote. “Over the past three years, the New York state agency ‘Council on the Arts’ chipped in $310,000.”

The Public Theater’s latest Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar has caused national controversy over the bloody scene in which a stand-in for Trump — complete with blond hair and a business suit — is stabbed to death. The resulting backlash against the play has led companies including Delta Air Lines and Bank of America to pull funding from the theater.

However, the Public Theater has over the years attracted millions of patrons, according to Andrzejewski. The theater reportedly pays three of its employees well over $300,000 each, according to IRS990 disclosures.

    A class action law suit should be filed, demanding every cent of taxpayers 30M be paid back to We the PPL with 100% interest. That money was stolen from Americans without knowledge. What a travesty and crime against Our Country, Our President, Our First Lady, First Family, causing trauma to us ALL. The play must be shut down.
    We the PPL need to petition the court now to take legal action against this Crime of taxpayers being stolen from for such viciousness. We need to demand more respect for our President, this is wrong and down right criminal, shame on ALL involved.
    Judicial Watch will be contacted for law suit.
