The Play’s the Thing: Where to See Shakespeare in Connecticut this Summer [MAP]

“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” ― William Shakespeare

The Bard kneweth best — don’t let the summer slip by without catching one of many Shakespearean performances happening at outdoor venues across Connecticut. Most are free with a suggested donation, some have limited reserved seating available for a fee, all are kid-friendly. Contact the venues to inquire about their policies on pets, picnics and alcohol, and to learn of weather-related cancellations.

To help you plan your midsummer nights’ Shakespeare-iences, here’s an interactive map — click on any play name to filter, and click on the map markers to see more information. To see all events in a list, use the scroll bar on the right side of the map.

UPDATED: Added “Cymbeline” in New London, “Romeo and Juliet” in Essex, “King Lear” in Middletown.
