This weekend the Heights Players are premiering their new production of Douglas Carter Beane’s As Bees in Honey Drown, described by The New York Times as “a delicious soufflé of satire.” Performances are at 8:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Make reservations here.
The Brooklyn Heights Cinema, which is trying to upgrade and survive–and gets a boost from Gothamist–is showing Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me starting Friday. The Cinema will also be showing Gloria. More information and showtimes are here.
Bargemusic has three Materworks concerts scheduled. On Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. hear works by Haydn and Prokofiev on piano by Alexander Peskanov, and on Sunday at 4:00 hear works by Beethoven, Debussy, and Dvorak performed by Alaria. There’s more information and buy tickets here. Saturday afternoon at 3:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert. Doors open at 2:30; first come, first seated.
Set in the tumultuous decade prior to the Civil War, this original musical explores the tensions between Brooklyn’s economic ties to southern slavery and the moral imperative of a small group of anti-slavery activists.
