  • This theater is a gift to the city. There is nothing quite like sitting under the stars in Central Park and watching world class Shakespeare. And!!! ITS FREE!!! (if you are willing to wait in a very long line.) I recommend you pack folding chairs, books, and snacks and make a day of it (get there early.) Another great thing about Shakespeare in the park is that it is BYOB! (no glass containers.) I have seen so many great show here, and I am moved every time. I can't recommend this highly enough.
  • Gorgeous outdoor theatre. Never been disappointed here, the summer Shakespeare in the Park series is always amazing!
