Important Note:

New Yorkled’s Webmaster once got to see the ‘Tempest’ at the Shakespeare Festival within Central Park.

Patrick Stewart had the leading role and it was awesome!

Mind you, even though you definitely need to stand on line for hours to get your free tickets, yours truly never did. We tried once then gave up. BUT, days following our attempt, we happened upon the line to the Delacorte Theater and managed to be the last ones on line and yet, we still got in.
So, you never know!
