Shakespeare in Central Park – FREE

Shakespeare in Central Park started last night …. at the Delacorte Theatre … Romeo & Juliet … it was a beautiful evening to enjoy a comedy in the Park ….
The evening was cool and autumn-like with clear blue skies and a stiff breeze … the open-air stage was surrounded by lush green trees, which gave a magical feeling to the show … the stage was very minimal with a revolving wood-plank circle and a shallow moat of water in the centre … movable iron bridges and shelving provide the changeable scenes … the actors gave a fine performance with much water trashed about … it was thrilling to be at the show on opening night and enjoy a free performance.
Next week, the Metropolitan Opera will perform on Tuesday in the Great Lawn … Patsy’s fresh mozzarella & tomato pizza and vino to go … summer-time and the living is easy, fish are jumping …
