“Shakespeare under the stars!”
Located at the heart of Central Park, the Theatre is best known for its summertime productions of Shakespearean plays, which take place during the annual New York Shakespeare festival. During the series's eight-week duration, two plays are produced, at least one of which is traditionally a play by Shakespeare. Tickets to shows at the Theatre are free, so long as one is prepared to wait in line on the day of the performance to obtain them. The Delacorte Theater, operated by The Public Theater, founded by Joseph Papp, has hosted numerous productions of classic plays in addition to those by Shakespeare, such as Anton Chekov's The Seagull and Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children.
