Great Performances “Richard III”

Friday, May 19 at 8 p.m.

Experience The Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare in the Park production of “Richard III,” Shakespeare’s tragedy starring Danai Gurira in the title role.

Guided by his lust for power and the throne, Gurira gives a performance that The New York Times called “unflaggingly energetic” and “vocally thrilling.” Recorded live in July 2022 from Central Park in New York City, New York, Richard uses words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice by manipulating, kidnapping and killing all who stand between him and the throne. The energetic production features the use of American Sign Language, a revolving set and dance sequences.
