CENTRAL PARK — Shakespeare in the Park announced two shows for the upcoming summer season.

Daniel Sullivan, who directed Al Pacino in the "Merchant of Venice" last summer, will direct “All’s Well That Ends Well.”

David Esbjornson, who directed "Much Ado About Nothing," will direct “Measure for Measure.”

"Last year's Shakespeare rep was a thrilling success; the current run of The Merchant of Venice on Broadway is a wonderful reminder of what made last summer so magical," said Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis in a statement. "This year, two of Shakespeare's richest and most rewarding plays make up our season."

The series will run from June 6 to July 31 at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
