The Capeman



Originally on Broadway in 1998, Simon's musical The Capeman tells the true story of a Nuyorican street gang member whose story exploded on to the front pages of the tabloids in 1959, ultimately revealing the cultural and racial tensions beneath the surface of New York in that era. The Capeman's score is a dazzling blend of Latin music, Doo Wop and artful ballads to tell a gripping and controversial New York story. Free tickets will be distributed the day of the show in person at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park beginning at 1:00 p.m. or by registering for Virtual Ticketing online at the day of the performance you want to attend. Virtual Ticketing recipients are chosen at random to receive tickets, not in the order requests are received.
