NEW YORK (AP) — It will be "Measure for Measure" and "All's Well That Ends Well" this summer as the two free outdoor offerings from The Public Theater in Central Park's Delacorte Theatre.

Both Shakespeare plays will be performed in repertory, running from June 6 through July 31.

Though casting was not immediately announced Tuesday, the Public says "Measure for Measure" will be directed by Daniel Sullivan. He directed last summer's repertory run of "Twelfth Night" and "Merchant of Venice," which transferred to Broadway with Al Pacino starring.

"All's Well That Ends Well" will be directed by David Esbjornson. He is enjoying success on Broadway with "Driving Miss Daisy," which stars James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave.
