For the first time in over 40 years, The Public Theater's FREE SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK will be broadcast on PBS Great Performances, furthing our mission to make Shakespeare accessible to all.
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.
Free Shakespeare in the Park and timely productions like MUCH ADO are not possible without the generous support of people like you. Please consider making a gift in honor of this important production and its nationwide broadcast.
