[© NW2005 First Look] 2011 Shakespeare in the Park Gala

Here, Naomi and Liev were seen attending the 2011 Shakespeare In The Park Gala at the Delacorte Theater in New York City on Jun 20, 2011 and Naomi looked lovely in a red striped dress.

**and from the New York Observer:

Liev Schreiber, who has long been involved with the Public, attended the gala with his longtime date, Naomi Watts, who wore a long, red and pink striped Marc Jacobs dress. The couple, both New York transplants, gushed about their adopted home and the Public Theater’s special niche with Shakespeare in the Park. Ms. Watts explained that the evening was really a “celebration of the city.” “It’s a testament to this one truly remarkable park,” Mr. Schreiber added. The couple said they look forward to bringing their two sons, Sasha and Sammi, to performances in the future, but as the children are just 3 and 2 their parents admitted it might be a little while before they introduce them to the Bard.

We asked Ms. Watts about working with Leonardo DiCaprio on their upcoming film, J. Edgar. “He impressed the hell out of me,” she responded. The Clint Eastwood-directed flick is set to be released in December. Asked which Shakespearean play the couple would like most to perform, Mr. Schreiber got a faraway look in his eye and said, gesturing to Ms. Watts, “I think you would make a great Lady McB.” Fearing bad luck, the superstitious actor refused to utter the word “Macbeth” within the vicinity of a theater.

A trouper team?: Schreiber, a theater fave and veteran of numerous Public productions, admitted he's "dying to do something" else on stage, "but I can't put my finger on it." His enthusiasm may be contagious: Longtime love Watts, who turned up in a striped Marc Jacobs dress (spicing up Schreiber's beige Joe Kos suit), is "terrified but very intrigued" by the idea of taking on a play. "I've been thinking on it and talking about it for a long time. It would probably be a new play, or at least something not so familiar."

Dress is from Marc Jacobs. It's not love at first sight, but very interesting and definitely looks good on her.
