Richard III Tickets
Richard III Information
Danai Gurira will star in the title role of William Shakespeare's Richard III, directed by Tony nominee Robert O'Hara. Check back for information on Richard III tickets, which are all available for free as with all shows in The Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park program.
One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab will open Free Shakespeare in the Park's 60th Season with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
Besides opening the 2022 season, Richard III is the first Shakespeare in the Park production since 2019. It will be followed by As You Like It, a musical adaptation by Shaina Taub that was originally scheduled for Shakespeare in the Park's 2020 season.
