The Upper West Side Shake Shack is offering a new treat in conjunction with Shakespeare in the Park’s upcoming production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with all proceeds going to the theater.
Delta and Bank of America pulled their sponsorships of the Public Theater this month because of controversy around the production of Julius Caesar, whose title character resembled Donald Trump.
Shake Shack released a statement.
From Monday, July 3rd—Sunday, August 13th, the Upper West Side Shack will serve The Shake-speare shake ($5.79): a strawberry and rose shake topped with whipped cream and fairy dust sprinkles. 100% of the proceeds from the shake will benefit The Public Theater’s wide range of programming, including its Free Shakespeare in the Park series, the bedrock of The Public Theater’s dedication to making theater accessible to all. The exclusive Shakespeare offering will coincide with The Public Theater’s showing of the beloved comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Tuesday, July 11th—Sunday, August 13th).
The UWS Shake Shack is at 77th and Columbus.
