First Look at Gob Squad's Before Your Very Eyes at The Public Theater
Take a look at Gob Squad's Before Your Very Eyes, created over the past two years with 9-14 year olds from around New York City. Tracing the lives of seven characters in fast-forward, "from angst-ridden teens to hunched geriatrics," it runs through Nov. 29 at The Public Theater.
The Public Theater hosted their annual gala June 9 at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, home to the popular Shakespeare in the Park productions each summer. The event, which included a special performance of The Tempest as well as dinner, celebrates the Public's artistic director of ten years, Oskar Eustis and wife Laurie Eustis.
The 53rd season of Shakespeare in the Park kicks off May 27 with The Tempest, starring Academy Award nominee Sam Waterston ("The Newsroom," King Lear, Hamlet). The production marks Waterston's 13th Shakespearean role at the Public Theater.
The 60th Annual Drama Desk Awards, hosted by Tony winner Laura Benanti, were presented May 31 at The Town Hall in New York City. Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway-bound musical Hamilton, which premiered Off-Broadway at the Public Theater, won seven awards — the most of any production of the season – including Outstanding Musical.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
