NEW YORK STORIES
I stood in line to get tickets for a performance of “As You Like It” at the famed Shakespeare In The Park – Delacorte Theatre. It was an amazing evening of theatre and it almost made it to the trifecta but I didn’t like the amplified sound (I guess necessary for an outdoor production?). Sitting amongst the trees on a balmy night as the sun goes down watching Shakespeare’s words performed by a first rate cast (Lily Rabe was outstanding as Rosalind) was a highlight for me. After I scored the coveted free tickets I took a stroll through Central Park and snapped some pics of park life. What a wonderful hive of activity, a magnificent park easily one of the best in the world.
