Rehearsals are underway for the Public Theater's second production in their Shakespeare in the Park summer season. Coriolanus, directed by Daniel Sullivan, will begin performances at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park July 16 for a run scheduled to continue through August 11. The new production follows the Public's current staging of Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon and starring Danielle Brooks.
Camping and Desperate Housewives' Jonathan Cake, seen as Antony in The Public Theater's 2014 production of Antony and Cleopatra, will star as Caius Martius Coriolanus. The war-torn tragedy will also feature Kate Burton as Volumnia, Teagle F. Bougere as Menenius Agrippa, Tom Nelis as Cominius, and Louis Cancelmi as Tullus Aufidius.
