On April 17, TheaterMania reported that Kevin Kline and Meryl Streep will headline a one-night-only reading of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" at The Public Theater's Delacorte Theatre in Central Park on June 18. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the benefit event will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte.

Kline and Streep will read the title roles in Shakespeare's tragic romance. Additional casting will be announced in the near future.

In addition to the reading, the Anniversary Gala will serve to honor Tony Award winner Al Pacino for his body of work with the Public, which dates back to the early 1970s and has continued through to his portrayal of Shylock in the Shakespeare in the Park production of "The Merchant of Venice."
