New York Classical Theatre presents a free, outdoor, roving staging of Shakespeare's epic romance exploring loss and redemption. More…
In 'The Winter’s Tale,' family, duty, and time itself help us better understand that for true love to come forth, 'It is requir’d you do awake your faith.' Also, look out for the bear! The audience follows the actors from place to place as the play moves from scene to scene. The show covers approximately three city blocks over two hours, so wear comfy shoes and clothes you can sit on the ground in. Presented for free outdoors in Battery Park (July 18-August 7) and Brooklyn Bridge Park (August 9-14).

Don't see it if You hate the idea of moving scene to scene or don't like to see hiccups that happen (like helicopters over head) when performing in a park.
See it if Shakespeare in the open-air is appealing. This production roves about Battery Park (next week Brooklyn) with the audience following.
Don't see it if You haven't seen a lot of Shakespeare's plays. This one's weird - psychological drama in first acts, then farce, then bizarre resolution.
