The Public Theater of New York puts on Shakesperean productions in Central Park every summer as Shakespeare in the Park. Tickets are free and are distributed via the line outside the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Another option and my method of choice is a daily log-in to the virtual line on the Public Theater website which allows you to win 2 tickets for same day performances. You are encouraged by the theater to bring snacks, wine, even an entire picnic basket that you can enjoy right from your theater seat. If you prefer instead, you can purchase gourmet yummies at the upscale concession stand Public Fare by Danny Meyer. You can get everything from Beaujolais wine and yellow fin tuna salad to whoopie pies, to name a few. If the weather is not cooperating, raining on and off don't worry, the show must go on and starts promptly at 8:00pm. The actors perform their best while getting rained on and the audience wears ponchos WooHoo.. It's great fun to be surrounded by the beauty of Central Park while experiencing Shakespeare, regardless of the weather.
