How do I get tickets?
What are the vaccination requirements for those attending Shakespeare in the Park?
You should check the Public Theater site for the official policy – https://publictheater.org/programs/shakespeare-in-the-park/free-shakespeare-in-the-park/. But I can say, anecdotally, that at the first production this summer we had to show proof of vaccination.
Saw the production last night. LOVED it! It was so much fun. SO grateful I was able to see it 2 nights before closing. Bravo to you all! Your concerted efforts certainly paid off. 🙂
