To go see or not to see? There is no question. Every summer since 1962, the Public Theater offers free, large-scale productions of works by William Shakespeare at the open-air Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Now playing: Coriolanus—A drama set in Rome about a general voted into power by a society hungry for change, and the unraveling that follows.
Held every Tuesday through Sunday starting at 8pm, performances will be ongoing until August 11th. Pro tip: Since this tradition is beloved by locals and tourists alike, stop by The Skylark for bites and drinks then head over to the park early as the tickets go quickly each night.
