THE BATTLE OF CENTRAL PARK tells the fascinating story of two iconic and divisive men, Robert Moses and Joseph Papp’s tense legal battle regarding whether Mr. Papp would be allowed to produce Shakespeare’s plays for free admission in Central Park. Weaving primary sources with original text and music brought to life on the stage in this movement-rich production, THE BATTLE OF CENTRAL PARK explores the contradictory and captivating relationship of two public figures who shared both immense stubbornness and love of New York City.
