Shakespeare in the Park is a hugely popular New York City Event that gives locals and visitors the chance to enjoy free performances at an outdoor theatre.

About Shakespeare in the Park:
New York City is a fabulous place to visit if you love live theatre. Broadway boasts dozens of theatres, and there is no place else in the world quite like it. While seeing a Broadway show is a must, there is something to be said for enjoying a show outdoors during a New York City summer.

This year, some of the plays on offer are The Taming of the Shrew and Troilus and Cressida. In addition to being able to enjoy these classic plays, you’ll also be treated to watching some of the best current actors perform. Past participants in this New York City Event include Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Natalie Portman, Kevin Kline, Anne Hathaway, and many others.

Tickets to all performances are free, but there is often some competition for them. Tickets are available at the Delacorte Theater, Downtown at Astor Place, through a Mobile Ticket Lottery, and via Borough distributions. For more information about how to get tickets to Shakespeare in the Park, visit the Event’s website.

Another way to get tickets is by becoming a supporter. While the goal is to make sure that everyone has access by offering free tickets, these productions do come at a cost. Supporters help make sure that the New York City Event remains available. When you donate $200 you get a reserved seat to enjoy one of these memorable performances.
