Photo Coverage: On the Red Carpet for Opening Night of CYMBELINE in the Park!
The Public Theater presents Cymbeline, the second show of The Public's Free Shakespeare in the Park season at the Delacorte. Directed by Tony Award winnerDaniel Sullivan and featuring the previously announced Hamish Linklater as Posthumus Leonatus/Cloten and Lily Rabe as Imogen, Cymbeline runs through Sunday, August 23, and opened last night, August 10. The Public began the Free Shakespeare in the Park season with THE TEMPEST.
In addition to Linklater and Rabe, complete casting for Cymbeline features Teagle F. Bougere (Caius Lucius, Cornelius); Kate Burton (Queen, Belarius); Raúl Esparza (Iachimo); David Furr (Guidarius, First Lord); Jacob Ming-Trent (Aviragus, First Gentleman); Patrick Page (Cymbeline); and Steven Skybell (Pisanio, Gaoler, Frenchman).
A Shakespearean fairytale, Cymbeline is the story of Princess Imogen's fidelity that is put to the royal test when her disapproving father banishes her soul mate. Cross-dressing girls and cross-dressing boys, poisons and swordfights and dastardly villains all take the stage in this enchanting romp about the conquering power of love.
CYMBELINE features scenic design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by David Lander, sound design by Acme Sound Partners, original music by Tom Kitt, and choreography by Mimi Lieber.
Since 1962, over five million people have enjoyed more than 150 free productions of Shakespeare and other classical works and musicals at the Delacorte Theater. Conceived by founder Joe Papp as a way to make great theater accessible to all, The Public's Free Shakespeare in the Park continues to be the bedrock of the Company's mission to increase access and engage the community.
