The new TNT series Will, which dramatizes the origin story of a young William Shakespeare, is sponsoring the final June 17–18 performances of the Public Theater's free Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar at the Delacorte Theater.

In the areas surrounding the outdoor venue, TNT will bring to life the world of the Elizabethan Marketplace with music, performers, and giveaways, including Will-branded totes, temporary tattoos, and koozies with the purchase of select beverages.

The announcement follows the recent loss of sponsorships and controversy surrounding the Oskar Eustis-helmed production, which depicts Caesar as a Trump-like politician.
