It seemed like summer would never come, and now that it has, who wants to spend the warm days and nights inside? Never fear; you can enjoy the warm weather and a show by seeing some — or all — of the many outdoor theatre productions that are offered in New York this summer.
Shakespeare in the Park Founded by Joe Papp in 1962, Shakespeare in the Park has long been a tradition of theatregoers, with more than five million people attending the performances. This year’s offerings include The Comedy of Errors, directed by Daniel Sullivan, running through June 30, and an original musical adaptation of Love’s Labour’s Lost, which will be performed July 23-Aug. 18.
Performances are held at the Delacorte Theater (accessible by entering at 81st Street and Central Park West, or 79th Street and Fifth Avenue). Tickets are distributed two per person at noon every day. Additionally, a virtual lottery can be entered online at shakespeareinthepark.org.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
