The drizzle turned to a downpour in Central Park last night at dusk. Outside the Delacorte Theater , 2,000 theatergoers got soaked waiting for the second of three free staged concert performances of Paul Simon’s 1998 Broadway fiasco, “ The Capeman .” (The final concert is tonight).
Bertram, the caddish count who comes of age in “All’s Well That Ends Well,” is no more likable at the end of Shakespeare’s odd comedy than he was upon his first entrance. At least, not at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
“The Winter’s Tale” may be Shakespeare ’s hardest play to stage, but Michael Greif’s uneven direction at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, starless, mis- and undercast, makes the task seem harder still.
