Shakespeare In the Park: World Class Theater for a Song

For your next romantic date night, consider one of New York’s greatest cultural attractions, Shakespeare in the Park. You can play the hero by getting the tickets, given away free at noon in Central Park on the day of a show. Pack a picnic for your spouse before the show. Acres of grass on the Great Lawn beg for a blanket, with the city skyline twinkling in the distance. Or flash a little plastic and let Public Fare, the theater’s café, cater for you—they’ve also got beer and wine to help set a mood.

Around dusk the show will start. You’ll settle into your seats alongside a knowing crowd, with the sky the only ceiling overhead. World-class actors, featuring a face or two you’ll recognize from the movies, will take the stage. Nestle close to your significant other as you watch one of the greatest plays ever written. When the show ends, the enchantment will linger as you wind your way through the trees and back into the pulse of the city.
