Today and Sunday at 3 pm: Brave New World Presents The Tempest in Coney Island
Brave New World is presenting two free performances of The Tempest by William Shakespeare today and Sunday afternoon on the Boardwalk
and beach at Coney Island.
The Brooklyn-based company, which has done site-specific versions of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "On the Waterfront" has made a name for itself performing plays in cool and unusual places around Brooklyn.
This time all the world's a stage, and Coney Island is the place. There will be 1,500 folding chairs on the Boardwalk near the NY Aquarium.
The BNW website warns audience members to remember that there's no Q train service and to leave plenty of time to get to Coney Island.
The show is at 3 pm today and Sunday.
