James Earl Jones, Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Natalie Portman, Morgan Freeman and Raul Julia are just a few of the stars to grace the stage of the Delacorte Theater since 1962. As the Public Theater celebrates its 53nd year at the Delacorte, we look back at the last half century of Shakespeare in the Park.


Tickets to Shakespeare in the Park are free and are distributed, two per person, at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park the day of the show. The Public Theater is again offering free tickets through its Virtual Ticketing lottery at shakespeareinthepark.org on the day of the show.

The Delacorte Theater in Central Park is accessible by entering at 81st Street and Central Park West or at 79th Street and Fifth Avenue.
