Monday Night in Harlem: Pulse Ensemble Theatre's 8th Annual Harlem Summer Shakespeare presents "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at Riverbank State Park
Pulse Ensemble Theatre in the gorgeous surroundings of Harlem's Riverbank State Park. Harlem Summer Shakespeare experience: we were lucky to see Macbeth in 2010 and As You Like It last year, and this comedy -- probably the one most closely associated with summer open-air Shakespeare -- seemed just as vibrant to us. Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where they'll be performing A Man for All Times: W. E. B. DuBois (we've taught DuBois' The Souls of Black Folk several times, having appreciated him and his work since we first came across it in Prof. Dan Mayers' Afro-American Literature I class back in Brooklyn College in 1973).
