Shakespeare in the Parking Lot has found a new home. The 20-year-old troupe, which was displaced from its Lower East Side locale at the intersection of Ludlow and Broome Streets last year, is moving three blocks away to a parking lot behind the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center.
The troupe will inaugurate the new Norfolk Street lot this summer with two shows: “As You Like It,” from July 9 to 26, and “Macbeth,” from July 30 to August 15.
The parking-lot productions, presented by The Drilling Company,which also stages shows indoors, have drawn a considerable and diverse audience over the past two decades.
