Clever, Strong acting, Delightful, Strong directing, Beautiful setting

See it if you enjoy Shakesp and/or Central Park. The combination is enchanting. Polished, professional productn. Fun to rove. 6 actors play all parts.

Don't see it if you're a die-hard WS purist. Lines are cut to yield 100 minutes. There is no balcony. But verse is well-spoken/audience kids are cute. Free! Read more

Entertaining, Great writing, Quirky, Refreshing, Clever

See it if A warm summer's evening, al fresco staging (w/Miss Liberty in the background) & skillled professionals all conspire for a amiable production

Don't see it if Copious edits often jarring giving a "Cliff's notes" feel to tragedy Leads competent but Gould steals show as Tybalt/Nurse/Friar Lawrence

“A smartly streamlined adaptation...featuring a dynamic cast of six...An immersive site-specific participatory production...The entire cast fluently delivers first the wit, then the drama...While maintaining a rapid-fire pace that keeps the audience enthralled and engaged...NY Classical Theatre’s production isn’t just free, it’s priceless – a thoroughly accessible, comprehensible, and inclusive opportunity to experience...Shakespeare in an excitingly transportive and personal way.”
