Hart Crane’s The Bridge, inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge, is considered one of the great epic poems of the twentieth century. This coming week, Wednesday through Friday, October 15, 16, and 17, at 7:30 each evening, the Brooklyn Historical Society will present a musical play rooted in Crane’s poem. The play “finds the poet captivated by both the Brooklyn Bridge and Emily Warren Roebling, considered history’s first female field engineer.” Admission is $10, or $5 for BHS or Green-Wood Cemetery members. You may reserve tickets for Wednesday’s performance here, for Thursday’s here, and for Friday’s here.
