Are you a fan of dramatic plays and tear-jerking comedies? Head to Travers Park this Wednesday for a free performance of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, hosted by the Mobile Unit of The Public Theatre.  Located at 78th St. and 34th Ave. in Jackson Heights, the Shakespeare in the Park series will grace Queens’ public stage on June 19th at 6 p.m. for a truly unforgettable performance. The 90-minute play will provide a bilingual English and Spanish adaptation for audience members to enjoy. 

Created by director Rebecca Martínez and composer Julián Mesri, The Comedy of Errors adaptation pulls from Latin American contemporary music to tell the story of separation and reunion. It features live actor-musicians who tell the story of two sets of twins separated by an ocean as they overcome a case of mistaken identity. The play highlights the confusion and comedy that follows their journeys.  

All performances take place outdoors, and seating is limited, with a first-come, first-serve general admission. There is no ticket distribution, and a reservation is not required.

Since the beginning of the summer, performances have been held at public plazas and parks across the five boroughs. The performances will run through June 30 as part of The Public’s commitment to bringing free theater to all and engaging with communities across the city.
