MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Directed by JACK O’BRIEN

Featuring LILY RABE  and

HAMISH LINKLATER

Hamish Linklater (The Comedy of Errors, “Crazy Ones”) and Tony® nominee Lily Rabe (The Merchant of Venice, “American Horror Story”) return to Shakespeare in the Park as the wisecracking, would-be lovers Beatrice and Benedick in the beloved romantic comedy MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. Three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien (Macbeth, The Nance) directs this skirmish of wit between two self-declared bachelors tricked by mischief-making friends into falling in love against their will and in spite of their own hearts.

Much Ado About Nothing has performances from June 3rd - July 6th. 

KING LEAR

Directed by DANIEL SULLIVAN

Featuring JOHN LITHGOW

This summer, revenge, rage, grief and madness thunder upon the Delacorte as Tony® and Emmy® Award winner John Lithgow (The Columnist, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, “3rd Rock from the Sun”) takes the stage as one of theater’s great tragic heroes, KING LEAR. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (The Comedy of Errors, The Merchant of Venice) directs Shakespeare’s classic drama about a King who loses everything—including his mind—when he betrays his favorite daughter, and finds himself betrayed in return.

KING LEAR has performances July 22nd - August 17th.
