While in Central Park today, I remembered that "Shakespeare in the Park" is starting up again in June. Excited because Anne Hathaway is in the cast this year performing as Viola from "Twelfth Night". Other famous stars who have performed there in the past include, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, and Christopher Walken, to name a few.
The free performances are at Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Free tickets are given out there at 1pm on the day of every performance. People wait as early as 6am for the tickets since they go fast. That's kind of hard core, but then again the tickets are free. I'll have to make sure to go this year because I still haven't been yet since moving to NYC. "Twelfth Night" runs from June 10-July 12, 2009.
