Shakespeare's Birthday: A Night of Villains

Bryant Park Presents Shakespeare

April 21, 2017

6:30pm – 8:30pm

Fountain Terrace

Celebrate Shakespeare's 453rd birthday with the beasts and scoundrels that the world loves to hate or emulate. From Iago and Lady Macbeth to Shylock and Richard III, The Drilling Company's actors portray some of the greatest monsters, busybodies, political outcasts, and social misfits ever written. Plus, Jambalaya Brass Band performs a New Orleans-style jazz funeral for the Bard.

Bryant Park Presents Shakespeare is sponsored by TNT's new television series, Will. Join us in Bryant Park for an exclusive screening of Will with cast and producers on June 27th. Visit the Will street teams on April 21 to get a free Shakespeare tote.
