Fifth Season of Public Works to Feature 200 New Yorkers
From All Five Boroughs on the Delacorte Stage
With Ato Blankson-Wood, Darius de Haas,
Rebecca Naomi Jones, Joel Perez,
Shaina Taub and Cameo Groups
Celebrating its fifth season, Public Works is The Public’s local and national initiative that invites diverse communities from across New York to join in creating ambitious works of participatory theater. This year, Public Works presents Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT in a ravishing new musical adaptation by Director of Public Works Laurie Woolery, and Shaina Taub
Two hundred community members and professional actors perform together on the Delacorte stage in this immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars. Fall under love’s spell in this magical story of chance encounters and self-discovery.
The Delacorte Theater is accessible by entering at 81st Street and Central Park West, or 79th Street and Fifth Avenue.
