Wednesday (06/11)

Stick with us here: Shakespeare in the Park is opening its production of a show that was not — that is, NOT — written by William Shakespeare. At Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre you will instead find Quixotean adaptation of the legendary story by Miguel de Cervantes, a man with many similarities to Billy Shakes. For example, both were pretty swell writers and both of them bought the farm in the same year, 400 years ago. Quixote continues through this opening week, and then on under the stars through July 22.

John “puts the Cou” in Cougar Mellencamp plays Verizon Theatre.

Thursday (06/12)

Donkey Beach, a madcap show inspired in part by choreographer Danielle Georgiou’s fascination with wacky old beach movies, opens at Hamon Hall in the Winspear. Performances continue through the 25th.

Go see that Iris van Herpen show at the DMA. It’s the future of fashion.
