As we announced earlier, Jessica presented at the June 30 Public Forum event Shakespeare in America at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Unfortunately we don’t have any official/HQ picture of the event, but a few Instagram pictures has surfaced.
Also, Theater Mania has published this beautiful picture, followed by an article covering the whole event.
The evening’s crowning glory was a joyous look at the most popular Shakespeare adaptation of the last century, West Side Story. As a reminder of Shakespeare’s uncanny understanding of the human condition, the audience was first treated to Jessica Chastain and Andre Holland performing the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, the inspiration for West Side.
