Bryant Park Presents: Shakespeare | The Merry Wives of Windsor

Shakespeare crafts the original spin off based on the popularity of his character John Falstaff. Originally appearing in the Henry IV history plays, audiences loved Falstaff so much that Shakespeare penned a comedy in which he could take a more central role. Letters are misread, people are quickly hidden in closets, and disguises about in this masterpiece of Elizabethan comedy. Merry Wives of Windsor is a fun filled romp on the follies of marriage and love.
