Besides doing photography, I work in the arts in various positions. I was brought in by a friend to take a look at the fights in an outdoor production of Romeo and Juliet being put on by Manhattan Shakespeare Project this summer. I have been to several of their productions in the past, and I stopped by the park while they were performing this piece as well. I took a bunch of shots, so here are some images. If you have time this week they still have performances in Morningside Park (I saw them in Central Park).
The company is made up of all women and the show uses six actors doubling/tripling/howevermany-ing parts. All cast info and show dates and times can be found on their webpage linked above.
Next week: The Central Park Zoo – tiny but picturesque.
