Tuesday tickets: See Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors for just $20 at New York City’s renowned The Public Theater. The $20 tickets are for performances Nov. 1 through Nov. 22nd.
Directed by award-winning Kwame Kwei-Armah, the sit-down run of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors follows a three-week tour to the five boroughs, bringing free Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts.
Mistaken identity leads to delightful mayhem in the Bard’s classic play about two sets of twins separated by stormy seas. When one pair dares to trespass into a foreign city to find the other, the comedy of errors begins and the long-lost brothers must overcome wrongful imprisonment, angry wives, and hilarious confusion on their journey to a joyful reunion.
The cast features Matt Citron (Officer, Musician); Bernardo Cubria (Antipholus of Syracuse, Antipholus of Ephesus); Flor De Liz Perez (Luciana, Second Merchant); Christina Pumariega (Adriana); Lucas Caleb Rooney (Dromio of Syracuse, Dromio of Ephesus); David Ryan Smith (Egeon); and Zuzanna Szadkowski (Solina).
Tickets, priced at $20 for The Comedy of Errors at The Public, are available now. Purchase tickets online directly from The Public Theater, by calling (212) 967-7555, or in person at the Taub Box Office at 425 Lafayette Street.
To further the mission and reach of the Mobile Shakespeare Unit, tickets for each performance of the limited run at The Public Theater will be given to community organizations that cannot host a visit from the tour.
The Public Theater’s Mobile Shakespeare Unit is part of The Public Theater’s long-standing commitment to making Shakespeare accessible to all. Now in its sixth year, it is a reinvention of Joseph Papp’s Mobile Shakespeare program, which began in 1957 to bring Shakespeare to everybody, evolving into the New York Shakespeare Festival and ultimately becoming The Public Theater.
Recent Mobile Shakespeare Unit productions include Measure for Measure; Richard III; Much Ado About Nothing; Pericles, Prince of Tyre; and Macbeth. The company will also present educational workshops at selected tour venues, expanding The Public’s existing community outreach and education program. This program continues the expansion of The Public’s Shakespeare Initiative, which includes the recent Public Works productions of The Odyssey, The Tempest, and The Winter’s Tale staged at the Delacorte Theater for free; Free Shakespeare in the Park; and The Public’s other affordable productions at its downtown home at Astor Place, all reinforcing the Company’s commitment to the ongoing exploration of Shakespeare’s canon.
