The best theater deal in the city is back. Shakespeare in the Park resumes July 19 with its second production of the summer, “Troilus and Cressida.”

Get ready to hear some new takes on the ancient Greeks — "The Iliad" stars Ulysses and Achilles both make appearances — in this story about how love makes fools of even heroes and kings. The cast includes John Glover, who helped set Lex Luthor on his path to supervillainy on “Smallville,” and Corey Stoll, last seen as the news anchor who broke Elijah’s heart on “Girls.”
