The Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare in the Park program is one of New York City’s beloved summer traditions and it started its summer run on May 28th. Tickets are free but have never been easy to come by, but with a little work you can usually get some.
Here is the lineup:
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
May 28 – June 30
Come the first week for your best chance of getting in!
LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST, A NEW MUSICAL
July 23 – August 18
Here is how you can get tickets:
The morning of each performance day, a line forms for free tickets at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Tickets are distributed at noon, 2 per person, while supplies last. Click here for more information.
