When New York’s Public Theater opened its doors in 1967 for the world premiere of Hair, a musical about the sexual revolution and anti-war protest, the venue immediately made its mark as a major player on the New York drama scene. In the summertime, the Public Theater treats the world to one of the most popular outdoor performance series in the world, Shakespeare in the Park, which has entertained millions since its debut in 1962. This series stages two shows each summer at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater, an open-air performance space with a state-of-the-art sound system that seats up to 1800 audience members. The first of this season's shows, Othello, ran from May 29 to June 24 and was a smashing success. Next up is Twelfth Night, a madcap comedy of maritime mishaps and mistaken identity.
