About The Drilling Company Theatrical Productions
The Drilling Company, producer of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, is looking forward to its fourth season of Shakespeare in Bryant Park. Now in its 24th season, Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, presented by The Drilling Company is a summer New York institution offering free Shakespeare productions. Seats are available on a first come first serve basis, with audience members often arriving early to secure a place. You are encouraged and welcome to bring your own chair. Once seats are gone, blankets are spread out. “We’ve never turned anyone away and there’s never a wait for tickets!” brags Producing Artistic Director Hamilton Clancy. We estimate that since 1995, Shakespeare’s plays have been presented there for over 100,000 patrons.
