Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Elizabeth Marvel (House of Cards), Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell (Shuffle Along), and more stars came out for the opening of Cymbeline, the second show of the Public Theater's Free Shakespeare in the Park season at the Delacorte Theater.
Directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, the production is led by Hamish Linklater as Posthumus Leonatus and Cloten and Lily Rabe as Imogen, alongside Teagle F.
