THE COMEDY OF ERRORSwill be performed in English and Spanish at outdoor sites in collaboration with The New York Public Library and Bryant Park and as part of the “Backyard at Hudson Yards presented by Wells Fargo” series at Hudson Yards. The Mobile Unit will also perform in public plazas and parks across the five boroughs in partnership with NYC Parks as well as other key Public Theater partners, including St. John the Divine. Performances begin Tuesday, May 28, and continue through Sunday, June 30as part of The Public’s commitment to bringing free theater to all and deepening its engagement with communities around NYC. 

Conceived by director Rebecca Martínez and composer Julián Mesri, THE COMEDY OF ERRORS adaptation embraces contemporary music styles from Latin America in a tale of separation and reunion. Featuring live actor-musicians, this modern musical adaptation brings a vibrant energy to an age-old tale of two sets of twins separated by stormy seas as they overcome a baffling case of mistaken identity—and the mayhem and hilarious confusion that follows.

LA COMEDIA DE ERRORES (THE COMEDY OF ERRORS) se presentará en inglés y español en sitios al aire libre en colaboración con la New York Public Library y Bryant Park y como parte de la serie “Backyard at Hudson Yards presentada por Wells Fargo” en Hudson Yards. Mobile Unit también aparecerá en plazas y parques públicos de los cinco distritos en asociación con NYC Parks y otros socios de The Public, incluyendo St. John the Divine. La gira comienza el martes 28 de mayo y continúa hasta el domingo 30 de junio como parte del compromiso de The Public de llevar el teatro gratuito a todos y profundizar su compromiso con las comunidades de toda la ciudad de Nueva York.

Concebida por la directora Rebecca Martínez y el compositor Julián Mesri, la adaptación de LA COMEDIA DE LOS ERRORES (THE COMEDY OF ERRORS) adopta estilos musicales contemporáneos de Latinoamérica en una historia de separación y reencuentro. Con actores y músicos en vivo, esta adaptación musical moderna aporta una energía vibrante a una historia antigua de dos pares de gemelos separados por mares tormentosos mientras superan un desconcertante caso de identidad equivocada, y el caos y la hilarante confusión que eso conlleva.

The initial cast for THE COMEDY OF ERRORS includes Varín Ayala (Egeon, Pinch); Jacinta Clusellas (Music Director/Guitarist); Danaya Esperanza (Adriana); Rebecca Jimenez (Understudy); Keren Lugo (Luciana); Alan Mendez (Understudy); Sara Ornelas (Troubadour), Gían Pérez (Dromio); and Desireé Rodriguez (Courtesan, Emilia).

Revitalizing The Delacorte

The Public, in partnership with Central Park Conservancy and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, has embarked on a much-needed revitalization of the 62-year-old Delacorte Theater in Central Park. The plan will dramatically improve the home of Free Shakespeare in the Park, addressing critical infrastructure, accessibility, and theatrical needs. Renovations are underway and while the theater is closed, don’t miss Go Public! A Festival of Free Shakespeare in the Park taking place all over NYC this summer. We look forward to the revitalized Delacorte’s premiere in the summer of 2025. Learn more.
