New York Shakespeare Festival 2012
5 – 30 June & 23 July – 25 August 2012
Shakespeare in the Park is one of New York City’s most beloved summer traditions. New York natives and visitors alike have been enjoying free Shakespeare since performances began in 1954. Now 50 years after the opening of Shakespeare in the Park’s permanent home at the Delacorte Theater on June 18, 1962, The Public Theater continues to produce Shakespeare in the Park.
This summer, Daniel Sullivan, who directed acclaimed productions of All’s Well That Ends Well, The Merchant of Venice and Twelfth Night in the Park, will return to direct As You Like It in June with Lily Rabe as Rosalind. The second show of the 50th Anniversary summer season will be Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s beloved musical Into the Woods, directed by Timothy Sheader with co-direction by Liam Steel, beginning performances at the end of July.
