The Public Theater

Dear Tulis,

Even though it’s still spring, we’re falling back to the days of summer at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Last year, we presented Kenny Leon’s version of William Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.

Take a look below behind-the-scenes with our Hero, Margaret Odette, as well as a small snippet of the show. If you want to relive it again from your own couch (sadly, probably without a frozen rosé), you can stream it for free from the WNET website.

MARGARET ODETTE: HERO’S JOURNEY 

Cast member Margaret Odette takes us through a typical day in New York City while getting ready for a performance at The Delacorte.

THE BANTER OF BEATRICE AND BENEDICK 

Enjoy this clip featuring Danielle Brooks and Grantham Coleman as they pit against each other’s wit.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING ON REPEAT

While not physically at The Delacorte, you can watch the Great Performances for free at WNET. Learn more about the cast and the play on our website.

Please consider making a gift today to celebrate this production and all Free Shakespeare in the Park productions, so that we may continue to bring joy to New York City and beyond.

While the stages are dark, the rehearsal rooms quiet, and the gathering spaces empty, please continue to connect with us, engage with us, and if you have the means, continue to support and stand with us. We are all One Public.
