Shakespeare in the Park is a well-beloved Central Park tradition. Dating back for nearly 60 years, it has managed to put on the Central Park stage some of the most iconic plays like Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, and many more!
The “season” usually runs through most of may up until august. The “stage” is the Great Lawn,
and Belvedere Castle and Turtle Pond are the “décor”. Plays start in the late afternoon, usually
when the sun is still up. This way the sun and the moon take care of the stage lighting, thus
making Shakespeare in the Park a unique experience.
