NEW YORK CITY'S FAMOUS PUBLIC THEATER BRINGS ROMEO & JULIET TO RECREATION CENTERS ACROSS THE CITY—HARLEM, WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, BROWNSVILLE, NORWOOD AND PORT RICHMOND
FREE Performances for the Whole Family
DETAILS: NYC Parks invites families across the city, as a part of its Arts, Culture & Fun program, to a free performance of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, presented by The Public Theater's Mobile Unit. In some of the most romantic language ever written for the stage, young Romeo and Juliet become fortune's fools when the ancient grudge between their families forces them to sacrifice all for the chance to be together. Obie Award winner Lear deBessonet directs the classic tale of star-cross'd lovers caught between the world outside the bedroom window and passion as boundless as the sea. RSVP required.
