    If you want to line up for free tickets for #shakespeareinthepark , arrive as early as you can. Central Park opens at 6AM, and the line gets VERY LONG.

    Best bet for Shakespeare in the Park tickets is the lottery at The Public (Astor Pl) from 11:30-12. You MUST be on time for lotto & to pick up tix

    "No photography allowed" so snap a quick, no flash photo before you settle in. Hit the bathroom before the show as its looked down upon to get up during.

    The theater itself was nice, but we weren't fond of the particular performance. Definitely will try another.

    The standby line for Shakespeare in the Park is usually pretty reasonable. Get there about an hour and a half before showtime.

    People who work at box office are all rude. I guess there is no free lunch since we are all trying to get the free Shakespeare tix.

    Lovely venue, unfortunately the people handing out tickets are rude & petty "If you ask us a question, you go to the back of the line!"

    Mid-week, try walking up a few minutes before performance time to see Shakespeare in the Park. In this case, you get an insane amount more than what you pay for.

    Hathaway, McDonald, Esparza, and Linklater were very funny in Twelfth Night. If you can't spend 8 hours in person queuing for tix, try the "Virtual Line" lottery.
