William Shakespeare's Coriolanus, The Public Theater's second free Shakespeare in the Park production, opened August 5 in the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Starring in the title role in this modern-day version is Jonathan Cake, previously seen as Antony in The Public's 2014 production of Antony and Cleopatra.
Tony winner Daniel Sullivan helms the war-torn tragedy with a principal cast that also features Kate Burton as Volumnia, Teagle F. Bougere as Menenius Agrippa, Tom Nelis as Cominius, and Louis Cancelmi as Tullus Aufidius.
