Waiting on line for tickets to see free Shakespeare in the park is oddly satisfying. At first, if you decide to schlep up to the entrance of the park at the crack of dawn, you may mumble to yourself and question your sanity. Once there...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

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.

I used the TodayTix app and scored two tickets in the lottery so I didn't have to wait in line to get seats! Highly recommend you check this out. Such an amazing night!

Shakespeare in the Park is really very well done. Spectacles are interestingly arranged and actors' play is great. If you add to it the fact that it all takes place in the Park's amphitheatre, you obtain a perfect combination.

Love the theater in the park. Great performance. Show has lots of stage fighting (very complex), also guns. Just a wonderful evening. Many food and beverage options at the concession stand.

One of the best features of this wonderful theater -- great when there is a show or a play with not a bad seat in the joint -- are the men's and women's restrooms nearby. The poster in the men's room shows a real sense...More
