Monday, June 6th: Free Shakespeare in the Park Begins

Shakespeare in the Park is one of New York City’s most beloved summer traditions. New York natives and visitors alike have been enjoying free Shakespeare in Central Park since performances began in 1954. Now 57 years after Joseph Papp first conceived the project, The Public Theater is proud to continue to produce Shakespeare in the Park.

With the success of last summer’s Shakespeare in the Park productions of The Merchant of Venice and The Winter’s Tale, the 2011 Shakespeare in the Park summer season will once again present two Shakespeare plays in repertory, giving audiences eight straight weeks of free Shakespeare at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
