Daniel Sullivan and David Esbjornson will direct Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well and Measure for Measure, respectively, for the Public Theater's 2011 Shakespeare in the Park season, to run June 6 - July 31 at the Delacorte Theater. Casting for the productions will be announced shortly.

All's Well That Ends Well focuses on the low-born Helena, as she inventively surmounts obstacle after impossible obstacle in order to win the love of the aristocratic and haughty Count Bertram.

Measure for Measure focuses on what happens when the Duke of Vienna leaves a seemingly pious man to rule over a city suffering from a certain moral decay.

Sullivan's work at the Delacorte include Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino, which has transferred to Broadway this season. His other numerous Broadway credits include Time Stands Still, Accent on Youth, Top Girls, The Homecoming, Prelude to a Kiss, Rabbit Hole, Brooklyn Boy, Sight Unseen, Morning's at Seven, Proof, The Sisters Rosensweig, Conversations With My Father, and The Heidi Chronicles.

Esbjornson previously directed Much Ado About Nothing for the Public in the park. He is currently represented on Broadway by Driving Miss Daisy. Among his other directorial credits are The Goat, Or Who Is Sylvia, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, and Thérèse Raquin.
