Measure for Measure officially opened June 30 at the Delacorte Theater as part of the Public Theater's 2011 Shakespeare in the Park outdoor season in New York City's Central Park.


In celebration of both the 2011 repertory productions of Measure for Measure and All's Well That Ends Well, troupe member Carson Elrod took the camera backstage at the Delacorte for the last time in the third and final segment of Playbill's Shakespeare in the Park video series.

In Part 1 of the series, Elrod began with an in-depth behind-the-scenes tour, and in Part 2, he described the rehearsal and preparation process when it begins to rain. Here, Elrod hits the sound booth and the dressing rooms, bumping into members of the cast and production team, who talk about their experience with Shakespeare in the Park. Finally, he hands the camera over to Tony Award winner John Cullum, so he can tell Playbill about what it's like to perform at the outdoor venue—a dream he's had for 14 years.

Performances of Shakespeare in the Park are at 8 PM. Tickets are free and are available on the day of the performance (two per person) at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park beginning at 1 PM, or by entering the Public's online ticketing lottery at ShakespeareinthePark.org.
