It’s too cold out for free Shakespeare in the park, but you can enjoy FREE Shakespeare in three branches of the New York Public Library today, Saturday, November 10th. The readings are offered by Instant Shakespeare, a group of professional actors and actresses who are also fans of The Bard. All the performances are 1 pm to 4 pm. There are no reservations, so get their early enough to get a seat. Here’s the schedule —
Tragedy of Richard the Third — Epiphany Branch, NYPL 228 East 23rd Street
The Third Part of Henry the Sixt — Muhlenberg Branch NYPL 209 West 23rd Street
The Tragedie of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark — Riverside Branch, NYPL 127 Amsterdam Ave at 65th Street
Because the play’s the thing, as Shakespeare said.
