Want to see Academy Award-winning actors
perform in a classic drama on a Central Park stage? For free?
Ticket vouchers for "Mother Courage and Her Children," starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline, will be available at 651 Arts in Fort Greene on Aug. 25.
"Mother Courage," translated by Tony Kushner, concludes this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park program, staged by The Public Theater, and is part of the organization’s 50th anniversary celebration.
The play, directed by George C. Wolfe, follows Mother Courage (Streep, pictured) over 12 years as she loses her family and faith while struggling for survival in times of war.
"This summer’s shows in the park are a perfect manifestation of what The Public Theater stands for," said the Public’s Artistic Director Oskar Eustis in a statement. "Our nation’s greatest actors performing the world’s greatest plays under the direction of thrilling and boundary-breaking directors free for the public."
Pick up a ticket voucher for "Mother Courage and Her Children" at 651 Arts (651 Fulton St. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene) from 1 pm to 3 pm on Aug. 25 for that day’s performance at 8 pm at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater (enter the park at 81st Street and Central Park West). Vouchers are limited to two per person and are exchanged for tickets at the Delacorte Theater Box Office, from 4 pm to 7:30 pm. For more information, call (212) 539-8750 or visit www.public
