If you missed seeing Theater 2020’s THE Real MERRY HouseWIVES OF WINDSOR Connecticut at St. Charles Borromeo Church–your correspondent saw it, and enjoyed it enormously–you can see it for free this weekend. We get our own Shakespeare in the Park, with performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 12-14, all starting at 7:00 p.m., at the Granite Prospect on Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Although the play is set in the present day Nutmeg State, the script is straight Bard. One twist occurs in the nature of the wedding at the play’s close. There’s more information here.
On Sunday at 11:00 a.m. meet at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1 entrance near the foot of Old Fulton Street for a free guided park tour. Also on Sunday, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Smorgasburg will be on the Pier 5 uplands, near the foot of Joralemon Street. A Sing For Hope Piano will be on the Pier 1 esplanade through June 21.
On Friday evening starting at 8:00 Bargemusic will present pianist Nadia Shpachenko playing works by James Matheson, Adam Schoenberg, Tom Flaherty, and Peter Yates. On Saturday evening at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 4:00 the Aeolus Quartet will perform works by Beethoven and Dvorák. There’s more information and buy tickets here. Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.
