(2004 revival) shakespeare in central park, Tv actors jimmy smits (benedick), kristen johnson (beatrice), & sam waterston (leonato), Also of note: off-bdwy fave brian murray as dogberry, Delightful

See it if Shakespeare in the Park always makes for a perfect fit for the Bard, especially his comedies and this production was no exception. GO !!

Don't see it if If you don't like sitting outside, have a fear of bugs, or don't like watching actors fending off raccoons, etc. Find free tickets offensive

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if I adore Shakespeare's comedies. This performance was one of the best I've seen of this play.

Don't see it if You don't get Shakespeare's sense of humor. His comedies can be quite quirky and sometimes a bit dry.

The New York Times

"Leave it to the Drilling Company’s brave ensemble to surmount the myriad distractions of Bryant Park with its robust and romantic staging...The players exuded an energy eclipsing the ambient sounds of the city...Under Hamilton Clancy’s direction, the production lags in more slapstick moments, largely in the first half, but not for want of vigor...The brightest moments involve the lovebirds."
