All the City is a Stage- Shakespeare in NYC

If you live in NYC you already know how amazing NYC summers are.  Mainly because of the boatload of free events they have.  Many of you, hopefully, have heard of Shakespeare in the Park,  you probably also know how difficult it is to get tickets.

This is because:

1. It’s Shakespeare and he’s amazing (duh)

2. They usually have one big time actor in the play

3. It’s free

Well don’t fret! I’ve done all the hard work and found free Shakespeare plays in NYC this summer.


Shakespeare in the Park

The Merchant of Venice

The Winters Tale

June 9 – August

This year Al Pacino is in it! Also Jesse L. Martin from “Law & Order”, and the ginger Jesse Tyler Ferguson from “Modern Family”.


New York Classical Theatre

Much Ado About Nothing

Battery Park City (July 17-Aug. 1)

Central Park (Aug. 5-29)

In this show the scenes move and the audience picks up and moves with them. Sounds fun!


The Boomerang Theatre

The Tempest

On weekends until July 18th in Central Park


Hudson Warehouse

Romeo & Juliet

No tickets required just show up!

This is actually a modern Afghanistan version of R&J.

“Assume a virtue if you have it not.” –Hamlet

Insult someone Shakespeare style!
