This Friday, Aug 25th, we continue with Julius Caesar. PLEASE NOTE this performance will start at 6:30pm, a change from previous start time.
This performance is actually a debut for our company at this particular venue: Cherry Hill in Central Park. Enter from W. 72nd and CPW for easiest access to this hidden spot, and head toward Bethesda Fountain and go up the hill next to it.
Picnic fare can be picked up at Columbus Circle’s Whole Foods if you are up for a walk, but we especially love Westerly Market esp. since they just renovated! Organic produce and packaged vegan and omnivore goods will allow for a unique, delicious dinner. Don’t forget to ask for napkins and plasticware at the cash register, and tell them Curious Frog sent you!
On Saturday, Aug 26th, at Inwood Hill Park in Manhattan, we think the rain just might hold for our DOUBLE BILL! The comedy, Two Gentlemen of Verona, plays at 4pm and Julius Caesar is at 6pm. Both shows play at Inwood Hill Park’s The Peninsula, which is located next to the Nature Center and the baseball diamond on the marsh. You’ll enter at 218th St. & Indian Road, and walk down the wide road and over the little bridge.
For this location, we always love to recommend Indian Road Café right there at the corner of 218th St. & Indian Rd, and everyone always says, “What a find!” Indeed they are! Just know that sometimes the wait can be long, so give yourself an extra 30-45 minutes to not just wait, but to make it a full, leisurely day of fantastic dining and beautiful surroundings during a Shakespearean play—or two.
As always, look for our chalk arrows on the sidewalks and pathways to lead you to us! Telltale sign that you have found us would be the streamers and balloons to say farewell to Valentine for his trip away from Verona!
See you tomorrow and/or Saturday! Bring a blanket or low chair, and sunblock and a rain jacket. Remember to check our phone line at 646-450-2878 if it looks like rain. We’ll let you know by 2 hours before curtain whether it’s a go.
