Shakespeare in the Park!


It's back...and, as always, it's free! The Delacorte Theater in Central Park will be presenting two of the Bard's classics his summer. 

First up will be Richard III, directed by Robert O'Hara and starring Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, Black Panther) in the villainous title role (June 17th through July 17th). Later in the summer, director Laurie Woolery teams up with songwriter Shaina Taub for a musical adaptation of the comedy As You Like It, choreographed by Moulin Rouge's Tony-winning Sonya Tayeh (August 10th to September 10th). 

Most performances take place on Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets are free, but necessary to get in.  As always, there are several ways to claim your spot:

It's a bit of, well, a thing to nab the freebies, but believe us, the performances are always worth it. And the Delacorte is a quick ride from the hotel on the B or C train to 81st Street. Head here for a complete rundown on the plays, registration, and the ticket distribution. And here's a link to the TodayTix app.
