PUCKED UP: As plays go, Willy S.’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ has it all: wacky misunderstandings, true love, drag, a guy with a donkey’s head. Check it out, courtesy of the Drilling Company’s Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, starting tonight, Thursday through Saturday nights, through July 25 at Ludlow and Broome Streets. http://www.drillingcompany.org/shakespeareparkinglot.html
AMERICAN GOTHIC: Head to Brooklyn Bridge Park for an outdoor screening of the Coen Brothers’ 'Raising Arizona,' easily the best cult film with Nicolas cage about a baby-napping in the desert – featuring yodeling – ever made. 7PM.
ROCK THE DREIDEL: What started as a seeming novelty now has staying power as a genuine genre: Matisyahu’s Hasidic reggae is a genius evolving thing, these days reaching into the vaults of hip-hop and funk. He performs at Central Park SummerStage (with prog rockers Umphrey's McGee) at 6:30PM.
