Borough Distributions Locations 2019

On select public performance dates, a limited number of vouchers for that night’s performance will be distributed via a line at a location in one of New York’s five boroughs to make it easier for all New Yorkers to enjoy Free Shakespeare in the Park. So be sure to check the performance and the borough calendar for when we will be in your community. Ticket vouchers will be distributed beginning at 12pm (noon) and ending at 2pm, or when all vouchers have been distributed, whichever occurs first. We recognize that ticket voucher lines can sometimes be long, and we appreciate your time and dedication. People waiting for free ticket vouchers must line up along the paths designated by The Public Theater staff and the host venue.  Public Theater staff will arrive at borough distribution points at least 2 hours prior to our 12pm (noon) distribution time and will address any of your concerns or questions so please feel free to speak to a member of our staff upon their arrival. A Public Theater Patron ID is required to receive a free ticket voucher and you can follow this link to create or look up a Patron ID in advance of arriving for distribution.

Each person (age 5+) may receive up to two (2) ticket vouchers while supplies last.  To allow as many different people as possible to attend performances throughout the summer, each person will be limited to receiving 2 (two) free tickets to a total of 2 (two) performances of each production during the Free Shakespeare in the Park season.

Those who receive ticket vouchers may redeem the voucher(s) for ticket(s) between 5PM and 7:30PM at the Delacorte Theater Box Office. Vouchers are only valid until 7:30PM for performances on the day they are issued.  Seat locations are distributed randomly upon redemption, not based on a person's redemption time at the Delacorte Box office.

ADA accessibility seating is limited for those who have a mobility disability. For assistance, in acquiring accessible seating during our borough distributions, please speak to a member of The Public Theater staff upon your arrival for the lottery.

Evening Standby Line

A standby line may be formed at the Delacorte for performances when all tickets and vouchers are distributed for that evening's performance. The Public Theater staff will begin to monitor the line starting at 6:00pm. Free standby tickets will be distributed if and when they become available, two (2) per person. Finally, we are unable to offer separate ADA Accessible and Senior Accessible lines during standby before performances in the park due to limited availability and demand, but if you require some form of accommodation due to a mobility disability please speak to a member of our staff upon their arrival to monitor the line.

 

We look forward to seeing you in your community!
