Shakespeare in the Park

Shakespeare in the ParkIncredible actors tackle the works of the Immortal Bard each and every summer in New York City. Produced by the Public Theater, Shakespeare in the Park is not to be missed. All plays, which are 100% free to see, take place at the famed Delacorte Theater in Central Park. While the first play of the season, “Much Ado About Nothing,” starring Hamish Linklater and Lily Rabe, has finished its run, the second play, “King Lear,” will open July 22 and close August 17. Directed by Daniel Sullivan and starring John Lithgow in the title role, this classic tragedy is the story of a king who disowns his favorite daughter, is betrayed in the process, and, when all is said and done, loses everything he treasures.
If you’ve never gotten tickets to Shakespeare in the Park, you’ll want to pay close attention to the rules and regulations. Ready? Okay, here we go. More than 100,000 free tickets are made available. Unfortunately, there are a lot more people than tickets so you may come up empty-handed. However, all’s fair in love and theater so you’ll have to wait in line like everyone else and hope for the best. Tickets are given away at the Delacorte Theater and the line will start as early as 6:00 a.m. the day of the performance, which begins at 8:00 p.m. You can’t get there any earlier as the park doesn’t open until then. The only way to reserve seats is to become a Partner, which entails making a donation to Shakespeare in the Park (a small price to pay).
