Shakespeare in the Park: A Picnic and Much Ado about Nothing
with The Public Theater
Offered in partnership with The Public Theater
Friday, June 21, 2019

Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (American Son, A Raisin in the Sun) directs a bold new take on Shakespeare’s cherished comedy of romantic retribution and miscommunication, Much Ado about Nothing. In this modern production, we find the community of Messina celebrating a break from an ongoing war. But not all is peaceful amid the revelry, as old rivals engage in a battle of wits, unexpected foes plot revenge, and young lovers are caught in a tumultuous courtship – until love proves the ultimate trickster, and undoes them all.

There will be a picnic on the Great Lawn before the show.
