It’s summer programming season in Brooklyn’s parks with movies, tours, and, in Brooklyn Bridge Park, free performances from New York Classical Theatre.
Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and New York Classical Theatre are both celebrating 20 years of providing programming in the city with a special production of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest.”
This isn’t the kind of performance where you settle in on a picnic blanket for the evening. Get ready to move around — the satire will be staged on various locations around Pier 1, with the audience moving around to follow the action. There’s also a reason to go back for more than one performance — the cast will shake things up by switching roles and genders every other night.
The play will be performed on six nights from June 18 through June 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Pier 1 in the park. For more information visit the event page here.
The play is just one of the many events taking place in the park over the summer, including storytime for children, dancing and stargazing. For the full list visit the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s event calendar here.
