All in Notes

NOTES: “Reich Richter Pärt” and Björk’s “Cornucopia” at The Shed

The Shed, New York’s newest cultural institution and a crown jewel of the controversial Hudson Yards development, is off to an impressive start with its multidisciplinary arts programming. As part of its initial offerings, I check out the immersive art and performance exhibition “Reich Richter Pärt”, and Icelandic icon Björk’s “sci-fi pop concert” show, “Cornucopia”.

NOTES: “King Lear” at BAM

The Royal Shakespeare Company is at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater with the U.S. premiere of their well-appointed 2016 production of “King Lear”, starring Sir Antony Sher.  Director Gregory Doran presents a stately and unfussy production with a refreshingly diverse ensemble and striking visuals.
