Greeks, Trojans and Scholars Gather in Central Park
Current scholars and some recent graduates sat before the walls of Troy in July for the Public Theater's presentation of 'Troilus and Cressida' on the stage of the Delacorte Theater. The play's appearance was updated – soldiers checked laptop computers and bursts of machine-gun fire crackled – but Shakespeare's words were declaimed by some of New York's best actors.
Outside the Delacorte Theater: Shofei, Emmanuel Jr., Ibrahim, who is going into his second year at Rochester Institute of Technology, and Fabien, a junior at Brooklyn College.
Two alumnae flank Sumitra of the latest class. Left, Elira, a June graduate of N.Y.U. and now an analyst at JPMorgan; right, Jane, a 2014 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, now on the staff of Mount Sinai Hospital.
In the Delacorte stands, waiting for the play to begin.
