Events We Love: Shakespeare in the Park

Looking for something worth comparing to a Summer day?

Say no more.

This Summer, the Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park returns to Central Park with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s most enjoyable and jovial comedies. This year’s Midsummer is the latest in a distinguished, nearly 60-year-long tradition.

Founder of The Public Theater’s Public Works program, Lear deBessonet, directs this year’s offering; among the cast is Phylicia Rashad, better known as Mrs. Huxtable. The show runs every day except Sundays at 8:00 PM through August 13th (note that there are no shows on August 4th and August 7th) and free tickets can be picked up day-of in Central Park, through a digital lottery, at the Public Theatre, or through borough distribution.

For more information or to find out where you can get tickets, visit The Public Theater’s website.
