Shakespeare in various parks
The bilingual musical version of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors at the Public Theater will wrap up in local parks this Sunday, May 21st, after which it will open at the Public Theatre, and you still have a few weeks before Hamlet opens at the Central Theatre.
If you’re looking for another outdoor hit with the Bard between those two spots, you’re in luck: the intrepid director of the Shakespeare in the Parking Lot series is coming to Bryant Park’s Upper Terrace. The show includes songs, scenes and monologues from previous events.
Johnny Gundelsman is best known for his work with pioneering bands such as Silk Road and the Brooklyn Rider String Quartet. Like many gifted violinists, he played and recorded sonatas, as well as Bach’s partitas for solo violin. But, unlike most violinists, Gandelsman made violin versions of six of Bach’s favorite cello suites. He also recorded them, really emphasizing the dance-musical qualities of these familiar pieces. And like no other renowned violinist, Gundelsman is set to perform all of these works—sonatas, partitas, and cello suites—in four consecutive concerts at the Met Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park next Monday through Thursday, May 22-25. It will be an unforgettable experience. You can find more information at the link.

Brooklyn Navy Yard is hosting the Other Art Fair this weekend. It will feature art in all its forms, including painting, sculpture and tattoos. Prices for various things are quite low, plus most of the stalls have free postcards.
If you feel like you need more adventure, visit the artists at the Lowlife Tattoo booth. Artists from the Brooklyn studio presented AI-generated tattoo options. Tickets to the Other Art Fair cost $23.54; details are at the link.
