The Bacchae Begins Performances In Central Park Tonight

Jonathan GroffThe Greek tragedy The Bacchae starts performances at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park this evening. The production, directed by Joanne Akalaitis and featuring music by Philip Glass, is the second and final installment of the Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park summer season. The Bacchae will have a shorter run than the Public’s previous production, the star-studded Twelfth Night, playing just under three weeks from August 11-30. The Euripides play stars Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) as Dionysus and Anthony Mackie as Pentheus. Tickets to the production are absolutely free and are distributed each day at 1pm at the Delacorte. If you are unable to get out of work to join the line in the morning, there is also a cancellation line in the evening.
