Every summer, the Public Theater produces a beloved NYC democratic tradition and one of the best free things to do in the city: Shakespeare in the Park, presented at the open-air Delacorte Theater in Central Park.There’s nothing quite like hearing the Bard’s immortal words performed outside in New York, with a backdrop of natural splendor and the Belvedere Castle looming in the background like the world’s most impressive set decoration.This year Shakespeare in the Park will be taking on the iconic classic ‘Hamlet’ until August 6.Tickets are free and are generally acquired through an online lottery due to the immense popularity of the project, however, this year there are reserved seating options which you can explore through the link below.
