Magical! Amazing! It did require giving up a morning to wait for tickets. We arrived around 9:30 and had to wait until noon. Once they start distributing tickets the line moves quickly. One of the most enchanting things we did on our visit, but we...More

We saw the Public Theater's production of Othello last night in Central Park. It was a beautiful night to enjoy free Shakespeare in the park. New Yorkers are so lucky to have the opportunity to see great theater every summer of free. The performance was...More

As always, attending a summer play here is a treat. Too bad the play was horrible. No matter - the surroundings are great and so much fun. Comfortable seats, good concessions, and very attentive staff.

That's one thing to strike off your bucket list. There's nothing like it, really. First, it's a FREE show with amazing performers and scenes. Second, it's under the stars in one of the most famous parks in the world. I arrived at around 5pm for...More

The Central Park theater that Shakespeare plays are out on as well as others. It seats about 1800. And is a delightful get. Shows are free but you need to get tux early. A real ny happening

First Julius Caesar and now midsummer night. Both fun. Public theater does a great job in producing Shakespeare and bringing a 21st century view to a 16th play. The sets in both were also excellent

We saw Julius Caesar at the Delacorte Theater recently, and really enjoyed the performance. We've been seated in several different locations during our various visits, and all seats have had very good lines of sight and very good acoustics. There is something very special about...More

I got tickets from TodayTix over the weekend and the play was wonderful. A bit of a modern twist but the play is timeless. First time at Shakespeare in the park and a great experience.
