Shakespeare in the Park
Shakespeare in the Park Review
Some of the best things in New York are, indeed, free—including this summer festival presented by the Public Theater and performed at an open-air stage in Central Park. The casts are often studded with Hollywood stars—Meryl Streep, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Helen Hunt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline among them. The tickets are given out (limit two per person) starting at 1 pm on the day of each show, and always sells out. What you save in money, you make up for in time and tedium—lines are long. Plan to line up by midmorning or earlier if there have been good reviews. The easiest way to score these scarce tickets is to register via an online lottery between midnight and noon on the day you'd like to attend; an email response after noon confirms (or denies) success. Making a donation to the Public Theater is one way to avoid the lines and be sure you get a ticket.
