Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

There’s more free Shakespeare on the pier this weekend, as the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy presents Random Access Theater’s production of the comedy Much Ado About Nothing at the Granite Prospect, Pier 1, starting at 7:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Set in colonial Macau, this production explores Much Ado’s wickedly enjoyable themes of love, intrigue, power, betrayal, and wit with a talented culturally diverse cast and a vivid Chinese/Portuguese inspired design concept.

Want to jump start the weekend with some stargazing? Volunteers from the Amateur Astronomers Association will be on the Pier 1 promenade with their telescopes this evening (Thursday, June 27) from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. to show you sights in the sky, weather permitting. These astronomical events will continue each Thursday (except next Thursday, July 4) through September 5.

Bargemusic has three “Masterworks” concerts scheduled. On Friday at 8:00 p.m. there will be works by Beethoven, Haydn, Saint Saens, Stephen Foster, and Arensky performed on violin, cello, and piano. Saturday’s 8:00 p.m. concert will feature works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Rachmaninoff performed on cello and piano. On Sunday afternoon at 2:00 there will be works by Beethoven, Lutoslawski, Milhaud, Ofer Ben-Amots, and Brahms done on clarinet, cello, and piano. On Saturday afternoon at 3:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, program and musicians TBA. The doors open at 2:30; it’s first come, first seated. More info and buy tickets here.

The Brooklyn Heights Cinema will be showing The Attack starting Friday, and will continue showing The Bling Ring. The last screenings of Mud and The East will be today. Showtimes are here.

Don’t forget the “Enigma” outdoor mystery theater on Pierrepont Street Saturday. Want to cool off? There’s the pop-up pool.
