shakespeare580x400

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS 
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Daniel Sullivan
Featuring Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Hamish Linklater
May 28 – June 30

The sparkling new production of THE COMEDY OF ERRORS concerns two sets of identical twins who were separated as children and now live as master-servant pairs in rival neighboring cities. When one pair crosses the border to find the other, so begins an exquisitely enjoyable mess of mistaken identity, wrongful imprisonment, questionable flirting and general mayhem! The stage is set for a wildly fun evening of physical comedy and brilliant wordplay as this irresistible Shakespearean confection returns to Central Park for the first time in 20 years!

For play dates and additional information, please visit: www.shakespeareinthepark.org.

Due to the Delacorte Theatre’s space, almost all of the seats are good. The tickets are for the summer 2013 performances only.

2 Tickets to Shakespeare in the Park – Love’s Labour’s Lost, A New Musical

shakespeare580x400

LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST, A NEW MUSICAL
Songs by Michael Friedman
Book Adapted by Alex Timbers
Based on the play by William Shakespeare
Directed by Alex Timbers
July 23 – August 18
A love letter to Shakespeare in the Park
from the creators of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.

Romance, revelry and enchanting music ignite in this contemporary yet lovingly faithful musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy. The King and his best buds decide at their five-year college reunion to swear off the joys of women. But when four cute, clever girls from their past show up, they’re forced to reconsider all of that nonsense! Smart, sexy, outrageous, and irreverent, LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST is a madcap celebration of true love and coming of age.

Obie Award winner MICHAEL FRIEDMAN (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and two-time Tony Award nominee ALEX TIMBERS (Peter and the Starcatcher) reunite for this fresh and unexpected evening of song, sonnets and Shakespeare, continuing The Public Theater’s long tradition of premiering new musicals in New York’s most magical summer setting.
