Following 2017’s triumphant portrayal of Henry V, NYC’s Shakespeare in the Square returns to Arts at the Palace on April 13th- 14th at 7pm for two special performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, sponsored by NBT Bank.
Founded in 2010, SHAKESPEARE IN THE SQUARE is a company dedicated to performing classics to the hilt. SITS has produced ten of Shakespeare’s plays in Washington Square Park. Their first indoor production, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, ran for four weeks at The Gym at Judson, an Off-Broadway theatre across the street from their outdoor stage. SITS Company Members have worked on Broadway (The Heidi Chronicles, This is Our Youth), Off-Broadway (Punchdrunk, Theatre for a New Audience), TV (“Law and Order,” “The Affair” on Showtime), and Regional Theater (Signature Theatre, American Shakespeare Center). When they’re not performing, Company Members also teach workshops and classes at schools up and down the East Coast.
