New York's Shakespeare in the Park Season Announced

If your clients want to catch some A-list talent in some of the finest plays ever written this summer, get them to Central Park for the 2011 Shakespeare in the Park summer season.

This season will once again present two Shakespeare plays in repertory, giving audiences eight straight weeks of free Shakespeare at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Daniel Sullivan, who recently directed Twelfth Night and The Merchant of Venice in the Park, will direct All’s Well That Ends Well and David Esbjornson, who directed Much Ado About Nothing in the Park, will direct Measure for Measure.

These productions usually bring out the big-name stars, and tickets become scarce quickly, so keep an eye out for when they become available. (Naturally, we'll have all that info here, too!) Last year's The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino (pictured right), transferred to Broadway, and previous years have starred such Broadway and Hollywood stars as Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Natalie Portman, Raul Esparza, Audra McDonald, Zach Braff, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and many more.
