If music be the food of love, play on!

MST brings you free summer theatre in the park!

After a six-year absence, Mile Square Theatre returns to the Hudson River Waterfront with a dazzling production of Shakespeare's cross-dressing comedy of true love, Twelfth Night.

Directed by MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor, the cast will feature MST audience favorites, with Matthew Lawler (God of Carnage, The Pavilion) as the puritanical Malvolio, Charlie Kevin (God of Carnage, It’s a Wonderful Life) as Sir Toby Belch, John Keller (It’s a Wonderful Life, Banner Yet Wave) is Orsino, and Jen Ring (Rikki Tikki Tavi, Flare) as Fabiana. Rounding out the cast is NYC actor and circus performer Peter Daniel Straus (Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus) as Feste the Clown. Twelfth Night will feature original music composed by MST resident composer Sean Hagerty (A Christmas Carol, The Pavilion).

Mile Square Theatre’s riverfront productions are a great way to cool off on a hot summer evening, and Frank Sinatra Park’s amphitheater is a spectacular venue for summer theatre. With beautiful scenery, costumes, and lighting created by Mile Square Theatre’s resident design team, and set against a breathtaking view of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, the show promises to be a delightful and entertaining evening of theatre for the whole family.

Local restaurateur Anthony Pino (Anthony David’s, Bin 14) will serve fresh-made American-style summer fare at the Frank Sinatra CafĂ©. The menu will include lobster rolls, barbecue chicken, hot dogs, seared tuna nicoise salad, pulled pork, and beer and wine.
