Central Park’s Delacorte Theater is transformed into an enchanted forest for the romantic comedy, which sees young lovers lost in the woods and mistakenly lusting after the wrong people. The limited engagement is scheduled through August 13, with direction by Lear deBessonet and choreography by Chase Brock.
Free tickets are distributed—two per person—at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park beginning at noon on the day of each public performance. A select number of tickets will also be made available for each performance via mobile lottery through the TodayTix app. For more ticket information, visit PublicTheater.org.
