I've been going to Shakespeare in the Park for more years than I care to count. Each summer, this is an eagerly waited for event in New York City. This year's play, Macbeth is running June 14 - July 9th and show time is 8:30PM.
This year's cast features Tolan Aman, Teagle F. Bougere, Sterling K. Brown, Lynn Cohen, Sanjit DeSilva, Seth Duerr, Jennifer Ehle, Amefika El-Amin, Stephanie Fieger, Jacob Fishel, Herb Foster, Phillip Goodwin, Hollie Hunt, Florencia Lozano, Joan MacIntosh, Graeme Malcolm, Michael Markham, Andrew McGinn, Mark Montgomery, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, Clancy O'Connor, Pedro Pascal, Liev Schreiber and Ching Valdes-Aran.
For those not familiar with the play, Macbeth takes place in a world torn by war, in which treachery, ambition and superstition rule. Macbeth is a victorious war general who applies the rules of war to domestic politics and in the process turns his country upside down. This savage political thriller has never been more timely.
FREE tickets to Shakespeare in the Park can be picked up on the day of the performance beginning at 1:00 PM at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park (B or C subway to 86th Street to 81st St. at which you can enter the park--just follow the footpath to the theater), or from 1 to 3 PM at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street, just south of Astor Place. There is a limit of two tickets per person and they are distributed on a first-come, first-serve policy
Bring a blanket, pack a picnic supper (and bug spray) and enjoy the show.
