We're trying to plan a trip to NYC for two adults and a 15 year old who is very interested in theater. I'm not particularly focused on any given plays but is there a time in July or August that is better or worse for visiting? Do any shows shut down (I think not but am not sure)? Are there any other things we should know before picking WHEN we come? If possible, we'd like to see something by Shakespeare. We will also visit some of the other great sights, like the Metropolitan Museum and that type of thing. I'm also interested in getting a hotel room that is a suite, but I saw some recent posts about this, so this question is really about timing.
