Summertime in New York means only one thing to avid theatergoers: Shakespeare in The Park. The Joseph Papp Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival ends its summer season with the Bard's classic tragedy, directed by Barry Edelstein. Julius Caesar is Shakespeare's gripping political drama. The rise and demise of a great political figure through the crafty proclamations of his "friends" highlights a conspiracy of monumental proportions.
Free tickets to Shakespeare in Central Park are available on the day of the performance beginning at 1 pm at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, or from 1-3 pm at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street. Each person may receive up to two tickets.
