Why does Shakespeare in the Park insist on starting at 8pm, when FASTTRACK shuts down the A/B/C/D trains starting at 10pm all this week and all next week?

I hear the current Shakespeare in the Park runs 2 hours 30 minutes, so everyone (cast, crew, audience members) must be inconvenienced by an extra walk to the #1 subway station at 10:30pm (or a walk down to 59th/Columbus Circle), on top of a very lengthy subway ride for many people (which typically includes 3 trains for me without the added walk). Furthermore, it's much easier for me to see and enjoy the show during the part that's still in daylight. After 9pm when it's dark, the blinding floodlights (especially if you're in the far side sections) can really ruin the experience as they are way too bright and can hurt the eyes.

Why can't they simply start at 7pm to make life so much easier for everyone? Then you'd still have service running at the 81st/CPW station at 9:30pm before the service shutdown at 10pm.
