Shakespeare in the Park coming to LIC


Hip to Hip Theatre Company will be performing the play Cymbeline on Saturday, August 9 at Gantry Plaza State Park as part of “Free Shakespeare in the Park.” The company is a non-profit arts organization specializing in family friendly productions.

Here’s more information from the site.1

Shakespeare’s early comedy TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA and his late romance/fairy tale CYMBELINE will tour in repertory to 12 parks from JULY 23 TO AUGUST 17.


A slapstick comedy about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness…and a dog. Young Proteus only has eyes for his hometown sweetheart, until he lays eyes on his best friend’s love. This is a zany tale of romantic rivals with lightning changes in affection, a maiden in disguise, bandits, and one of Shakespeare’s funniest clowns. The play asks the question: Is all really fair in love?


A shimmering fairy tale. King Cymbeline’s only daughter, Imogen, secretly marries against his wishes, and he banishes her new husband. With war looming and an evil stepmother plotting, the spunky princess ventures into the wild to reunite with her true love. Through Imogen’s journey, Shakespeare examines a central issue of his time and ours — faith.
