Shakespeare in the Park
May 23, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - June 18, 2017 @ 11:00 pm
The Public Theater’s famed Shakespeare in the Park returns with the first of two perennial favorites: Julius Caesar, followed by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Perhaps taking a cue from the runaway casting success of Hamilton a few blocks south, both shows feature multicultural performers breathing new life into the Bard’s works, and as always, free tickets are available for every section of the theater. It’s been 17 years since The Public last tackled Caesar’s brutal betrayal, so the show is sure to feel new even to experienced Central Park theater-goers.
