Shakespeare in The Park A Hit with Kittay House Tenants


On June 28, a group from Kittay House Senior Apartments traveled to the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park for Shakespeare in the Park.


It was the perfect evening for a trip to the Forest of Arden, the setting for Shakespeare’s beloved comedy “As You Like It.” Aside from the production’s evocative set, Kittay tenants were surrounded by the “forest” of Central Park and caressed by a gentle breeze which eased the heat.


The production was joyous,with original bluegrass music, dancing, romance, gender confusion and lots of clowning around, particularly by the character Touchstone, played by the exceptional Oliver Platt. There were, of course contemplative moments of profound poetry, such as the moving words about the different ages of man.


The Kittay theater-lovers returned after midnight exhausted but thrilled to have experienced Shakespeare at his best.
