Jesse Tyler Ferguson to star onstage in NYC


NEW YORK (AP) — Jesse Tyler Ferguson is heading from modern to classic — the "Modern Family" star is going to star this summer in Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors" in Central Park.

The Public Theater announced Tuesday that Ferguson will play Dromio opposite Hamish Linklater's Antipholus for five weeks at the Delacorte Theatre starting May 28. Daniel Sullivan will direct.

The second show in the free Shakespeare in the Park series will be a new musical adaptation of "Love's Labour's Lost, directed and adapted by Alex Timbers with songs by Michael Friedman. The two last collaborated on the musical "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." That show will begin July 23 and run through Aug. 18.
