5pm: Twilight: 2020 By Signature Theatre Company Anna Deavere Smith invites guests to have candid conversations about how the protests for the arrests of George Floyd’s killers and resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement echo the events around the arrest and beating of Rodney King revisited in her play, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992.

He is the lead Social Intervention Specialist and co-founder of the London based The Social Solutions Institute for Research & Development.

7pm: New Voices 1999 By Paper Mill Playhouse. The annual New Voices concert is the culmination of Paper Mill Playhouse’s Summer Musical Theater Conservatory, featuring 120 talented student performers ages 10–18, directed and choreographed by Paper Mill Playhouse’s professional artistic staff.

7pm: The Cast of HBO’s Coastal Elites in Conversation Join cast members Bette Midler, Kaitlyn Dever, Dan Levy, Sarah Paulson and Issa Rae, playwright Paul Rudnick (Addams Family Values) and director Jay Roach (Bombshell) as they talk with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota about their new HBO socially distanced comedy, Coastal Elites.

The special presentation spotlights five distinct characters across the United States grappling with the pandemic and the politics that surround it. Hear the cast’s reflections on the film’s exploration of our yearning for connection amidst divided politics and learn what it’s like producing a work about life in quarantine—with a cast and crew in quarantine.    

7:30pm: Donizetti’s Don Pasquale Otto Schenk’s enchanting production, conducted by James Levine and featuring a remarkable cast. The incomparable Anna Netrebko is Norina, the young widow beloved by Ernesto (a suave Matthew Polenzani), who is about to be disinherited by his miserly uncle, Don Pasquale (John Del Carlo). It takes the clever scheming of Dr. Malatesta (Mariusz Kwiecien) to set things right and to teach the old curmudgeon a lesson—fits of temper, mistaken identities, and all kinds of comic confusion included. From November 13, 2010.

7:30: The Revenger’s Tragedy Red Bull Theater through September 18th. Corrupt government, hypocrisy, abuse of power, adultery, murder, the death penalty, acts of vengeance, violence and vigilantism–Jacobean tragedy, or the headlines of The New York Times? This mesmerizing thriller, written a few years after Hamlet, is a searing examination of humankind’s social need for justice and our animal desire for vengeance.
