Shakespeare Performance Alerts for the East Coast!

Apologies for my long absence from blogging; my literature classes this semester leave me little time for recreational reading and writing!

But today I write of good news for Shakespeare lovers on the East Coast, particularly in the NY/NJ/PA area.  Spring has arrived, and before long, there will be opportunities to enjoy outdoor theatrical performances.


One not to be missed, is the 2013 Season of “Free Shakespeare in the Park.”  Yes, I said FREE!  Click on the link for details regarding the schedule of performances and location (Delacorte Theater in Central Park, NYC).

winters-tale-bgIf outdoor performances aren’t your thing, or you’re itchin’ for some Shakespeare right now, The Winter’s Tale is being performed at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre from April 2 through 21.  I have my ticket for the April 2nd performance, and can’t wait to see it!

othello_webOne more production I need to mention, is The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre’s staging of Othello starring Tony-nominated actor Forrest McClendon.  I will also be purchasing a ticket for this play which I’ve recently studied, yet never had the opportunity to see performed.

Remember Hamlet’s words everyone:  “The play’s the thing!”  Go see a performance, and watch Shakespeare’s words spring to life.

  1. Hey, Debbie! Like you mentioned in your post, I have heard that New York’s “Shakespeare in the Park” is a magical experience. I really want to venture out to the city soon and see one of the Shakespeare performances. It’s definitely on my summer to-do list!

    1. Glad to hear that! I am going to try to make it there, too. Thanks so much for giving me the heads-up on this event, Katie!
