Shakespeare know about a great free Summer Series in Central Park!
"MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING"
June 5-29 , Thurs-Sundays, 7pm, 97th St & CPW
Shakespeare on the Run is back in its fourth season with "Much Ado About
Nothing" opening June 5 through June 29 , Thursdays - Sundays 7pm Sharp
@ 97th St & CPW
New York Classical Theatre presents, "Much Ado About Nothing", but
you'll be expected to do something when the actors move every 5-7
minutes, and about 50 ft to get to the next scene.
Stephen Burdman, Artistic Director, will direct you in the right
direction, so you don't miss a thing. When you enter in at 97th Street
and Central Park West and you will be led into Central Park where the
play will begin. Central Park's grounds set the stage for this
production and then the fun really begins!
As you watch the show, the next scene that is about to happen, happens
about 50 ft away, and then they are off. The whole audience runs to
where the scene is taking place! Every 5-7 minutes, so no snoozing
during this show! The play moves between 97th St & 100th Street using
trees, rocks, benches and even the audience as scenery!
This production of "Much Ado About Nothing" performs between the
starting point at 97th St & CPW up to 100th Street inside the park!
There are no lines to wait on, no reservations to make, and no tickets
to buy! Just show up!
Lots of fun with this Shakespeare workout. Fun for the whole family.
Wear comfortable shoes or sneakers, and you can even come in on your
bike, rollerblades, scooter and even with your dog! The show is
wheelchair accessible and perfect to bring the little ones in their
