This spring, the Public Theater’s Mobile Unit will tour Shakespeare’s timeless tale of Romeo and Juliet to communities across New York City, including many NYC Parks locations. In some of the most romantic language ever written for the stage, young Romeo and Juliet become fortune’s fools when the ancient grudge between their families forces them to sacrifice all for the chance to be together. Obie Award winner Lear de Bessonet directs the classic tale of star-crossed lovers caught between the world outside the bedroom window and passion as boundless as the sea.
The Public Theater’s mission to make theater accessible to all, as exemplified by free Shakespeare in the Park, is expanded upon by the Mobile Unit, which strengthens community engagement with the arts by bringing free, world-class productions of Shakespeare to recreation centers, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social advocacy organizations, and other places of community gathering in all five boroughs.
