About Romeo & Juliet

The Public Theater’s Mobile Unit strengthens community engagement with the arts by bringing free, world-class productions of Shakespeare to communities all across New York City. This season, the Mobile Unit will present Shakespeare’s timeless tale of ROMEO & JULIET. In some of the most romantic language ever written for the stage, young Romeo and Juliet become fortune’s fools when the ancient grudge between their families forces them to sacrifice all for the chance to be together. Obie Award winner Lear deBessonet directs the classic tale of star-cross’d lovers caught between the world outside the bedroom window and passion as boundless as the sea.

As part of NYC Parks, Arts, Culture & Fun, the following venues are FREE and open to the public during the Mobile Unit Tour, March 18 - April 9. 

All orders subject to $5 per ticket service fee and $2 per ticket facility fee. Service fees are waived when you buy in person at the Box Office. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and Partners. Plays, titles, actors, directors, and performance dates and times are subject to change.
