Watch a show at the Delacorte Theater
Tickets to Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen still elude you? There’s another A-list production worth lining up for: The Public Theater’s annual Shakespeare in the Park. Former summertime showings of the Bard’s best work include Othello, Taming of the Shrew, and The Comedy of Errors with star-studded playbills (James Earl Jones, Meryl Streep, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, respectively). The best part? Tickets to the show are completely free and available directly at the park and Public Theater or via digital lottery -- the only catch is, they’re pretty hard to come by online; your best bet is to camp out in front of the theater on the day of the show. They’ll start giving them out at 12pm (first come, first served).
