Bard back, ‘Seagull’ off

'Winter's,' 'Caesar' going to Delacorte

Mike Nichols’ production of “The Seagull,” starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline, will just have to wait for next summer.

The Joseph Papp Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival gets back to basics — or, at least, the Bard — with “The Winter’s Tale” and “Julius Caesar” for its 45th season in Central Park at the Delacorte Theater.

Brian Kulick, the Public Theater’s artistic associate, directs “The Winter’s Tale” (June 21 to July 16), with sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Anita Yavich, lighting by Ken Posner and original music by Mark Bennett.

Barry Edelstein, artistic director of the Classic Stage Co., helms “Julius Caesar” (Aug. 8 to Sept. 3), with sets by Narelle Sissons and lighting by Don Holder. Casting is to be announced.

The schedules of Nichols, Streep and Kline didn’t mesh for this summer’s hoped-for production of “The Seagull,” so the aim now is to try for the following summer.
