FREE Shakespeare in the Park: Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday on Friday, April 21st, at the 7th Annual Shakespeare Sonnet Slam in Central Park, a FREE event in which both professional actors and talented amateurs take turns reading all 154 Shakespeare Sonnets.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways, starting at 1 p.m., at the Naumberg Bandshell, mid-park at around 72nd St., organized and presented by Willful Pictures.
Shakespeare Sonnet Slam is free, but a $10 donation is suggested to cover expenses.
The event is rain or shine, so let’s hope for shine.
Yea, yea, I know — How Do I Love Thee was written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, not by William Shakespeare. But it’s my own personal favorite sonnet written by anybody, male or female, Shakespeare or not.
