Don’t miss Twelfth Night, the latest production offered by the New York Classical Theater at the second half of the River to River Festival.
Set against the backdrop of Castle Clinton, the players enact a Shakespeare comedy as if the cases of mistaken identity were unfolding in turn-of-the-last-century New York.
Last season, the group led everyone across hill, dale, bay, and the historic buildings of Governor’s Island in Henry V. This year’s show may not involve sea travel, but is set against the backdrop of the Hudson. And it’s a chance to see free Shakespeare without standing in a line for 12 hours.
The show begins at Castle Clinton each night at 7pm. Twelfth Night continues for a few nights (until July 22) after the other official River to River festivities end on the 15th. Two more weeks; go check the calendar.
