A Weekend of Live Shakespeare: 3 Different Companies Putting on 3 Different Outdoor Plays

Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park is a famous annual tradition. But the Upper West Side gets more than just one Shakespeare fest every year. And this weekend, actors will stage three plays — all outdoors and all free.

The Delacorte will be showing Coriolanus, a bloody tragedy that the Times’ Ben Brantley called “uncommonly gripping.” Click here too learn how to get tickets.

Hudson Warehouse is putting on The Merry Wives of Windsor, a comedy featuring the boisterous Shakespeare favorite Sir John Falstaff. The shows start at 6:30 p.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at 89th and Riverside Drive and are pay-what-you-can.

And the Stag & Lion Theater Company is staging Twelfth Night, another comedy, at the West Side Community Garden on 89th between Columbus and Amsterdam. It starts at 6 p.m on Saturday and Sunday.
