For the last 16 years, Paula Scher has designed the posters for the famous Shakespeare in the Park. Paula has taken the art of posters for theater to new levels over the years with her unique designs. Above are examples from the 2010 poster created by Paula and her team at Pentagram. The performances this year includes The Winter’s Tale and The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino as Shylock. The plays are performed in Central Park, NYC in the evenings. And did I mention, the shows are FREE, this must make your to see list if you are in town. To learn more about seeing a play, go to this link for the Public Theater.
Below are several examples from years past created by Paula. I would love to find a complete collection of these posters, so if you know of a link, let me know.
