Summer Season


All New York Classical Theatre rehearsals and performances are Free and Open to the Public. Outdoor shows are not ticketed and there are no reservations required.

How it works:

The audience follow the actors from place to place as the play moves from scene to scene. An average show covers approximately 3 city blocks over 2 hours. Check out our 3-minute video to see how it works!
