Photo of the Day

Hottest ticket in town this summer: Al Pacino as Shylock in Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare in the Park. (In rep with a Pacino-less Winter's Tale.)  Now in previews, performances thru August 1.

Tickets $175 in advance, or free at the door.

Just kidding.  "At the door" means seven hours before the show, plus the seven hours you'll have to wait on line before then.

To be fair, we should also point out there some alternative ways to get limited free tix:

-select days at outer-borough locations (

-a daily online lottery on the Public's site (

-and I HEAR there's a standby line for cancellations shortly before the show...but no mention on the Public's website.
