Though June 21 is officially the first day of summer, for New Yorkers it’s the opening of The Public’s Shakespeare in the Park that marks the changing of the seasons. This year, the free outdoor series kicks off with The Comedy of Errors, which brings together Hamish Linklater and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as the twins Antipholus and Dromio, respectively. Daniel Sullivan will direct the play, which concerns two sets of twins, separated at birth and reunited as adults. Later this summer, catch a musical adaptation of Love’s Labour’s Lost, opening July 23. Tickets are available either at the box office, which opens at noon, on the day of the show or via the online lottery system.
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 28. Continues through June 30, 2013
