Shakespeare in the Park
For the past few years, The Singapore Repertory Theatre has been putting on increasingly imaginative productions of Shakespeare plays with lavish, sometimes modern, sets and seasoned casts. The next installment will be The Merchant of Venice in late spring 2014. There are some corporate hospitality boxes, but for the most part it's open seating on the lawn. So buy your ticket in advance and arrive with your picnic early to get a good spot. The shows are immensely popular, for good reason, and they often sell out. www.srt.com.sg
