Twelfth Night - Shakespeare in the Park

Sometimes I forget just how lucky I am to be living in NYC, especially in the summer where it is so easy to experience new things. I just finished reading Othello in my summer literature class and was feeling just ripe enough to tackle Shakespearean theater. In perfect timing, my friend Chana scored some tickets to Twelfth Night playing at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.

It was very exciting to see major stars Anne Hathaway (Devil Wears Prada, Rachel Getting Married) and Audra McDonald (Private Practice) up close and personal, as well as performing in styles so different from everything else they've done. Of course, there was an amazing assortment of major theater actors that did a fantastic job in keeping the play moving steadily along.

The weather was just about perfect for an outdoor theater that added to the complete experience. It was funny, witty and smart all the way through and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Last word: Go see it! Now! It's Free!
