'Richard III' picked for a New York parking lot

NEW YORK, N.Y. - It seems only fitting: With the bones of King Richard III found under a parking lot in Britain, a theatre company that performs free Shakespeare plays every summer in a New York parking lot has decided what to stage this year — "Richard III."


NEW YORK, N.Y. - It seems only fitting: With the bones of King Richard III found under a parking lot in Britain, a theatre company that performs free Shakespeare plays every summer in a New York parking lot has decided what to stage this year — "Richard III."

The Drilling Company said Wednesday its Shakespeare in the Parking Lot program will feature the tyrant from Aug. 1 to Aug. 17 in the parking lot at Ludlow and Broome streets on Manhattan's Lower East Side

Says director Hamilton Clancy: "We have known for a long time that parking lots and Shakespeare were connected. Our intention is to bring Richard III back to life in a parking lot."
