Look Inside Shakespeare in the Park's Troilus and Cressida
Daniel Sullivan directs the production at the Delacorte Theater.
Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, directed by Daniel Sullivan, is now in performances at the Public's outdoor Delacorte Theater. Set in the seventh year of the Trojan War, Troilus (Andrew Burnap), a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida (Ismenia Mendes), a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad — Ajax, Ulysses, Achilles, and the kings they serve — debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Take a look at scenes from the mythical production, offering free tickets to the public through August 14.
