The Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis Shares His Dreams for the Future of Shakespeare in the Park

The man at the helm of 425 Lafayette Street also tells us about Public Works and the Mobile Shakespeare Unit. logo

TheaterMania recently sat down with Oskar Eustis, the gregarious, larger-than-life artistic director of the Public Theater for a candid conversation about the venerable organization's storied history. Eustis shares his thoughts on Shakespeare in the Park, the fledgling Public Works and Mobile Shakespeare Unit, and offers a behind-the-scenes look at what makes the Public tick. He also offers a preview of things to come. (P.S.: It involves Meryl Streep doing Shakespeare in the Park again!)
