Shakespeare in Delaware Park opens Thursday

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The curtain will rise Thursday night on the 39th season of free professional outdoor theatre in Buffalo.

Shakespeare in Delaware Park opens its new season with “HENRY V” starring Patrick Moltane. Under the direction of Shakespeare in Delaware Park founder Saul Elkin, the play will also feature veteran actors Tim Newell, Tom Loughlin, Adam Rath and Gerry Maher.

Managing Director Lisa Ludwig said, “Generally each year we do two separate types of shows. One is done traditionally, which tonight, Shakespeare’s “HENRY V” is done very traditional. Then our second offering this year, which is “Comedy of Errors,” is going to be done with a little steam punk twist.”

Performances will take place from June 19 through July 13 on the stage next to Hoyt Lake, off Lincoln Parkway, across from the Albright Knox Art Gallery. Performances are held every night, except Mondays, at 7:30 p.m.

The second offering of the season, “Comedy of Errors,” will take the stage July 24 through August 17.

Shakespeare in Delaware Park is the second largest outdoor Shakespeare festival in the country, behind only New York City.
