Public Works presents the glorious story of Hercules, brought to vibrant life by professional actors and community groups from across the city.

Directed by Public Works founder and Resident Director Lear deBessonet, this summer’s production, based on the Disney animated film, features the film’s beloved score, plus additional original songs by the film’s composer Alan Menken and lyricist David Zippel, with a new book by Kristoffer Diaz and choreography by Chase Brock.

Note: Ticket distribution for Hercules is different from Shakespeare in the Park. To vie for FREE tickets, enter the TodayTix advance digital lottery anytime from Monday, August 12 at noon to Wednesday, August 28 at noon. You may enter once for any or all of the seven performances.

Separate advance digital lotteries will be held for ADA and senior accessible seats. TodayTix will notify you if you won in the afternoon on Wednesday, August 28.

If you're not one of the lucky lottery winners, you can enter the daily in-person standby lottery from 5 to 7pm before each performance at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Tickets are not guaranteed and are subject to availability.
