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.
