Why Go: Machel Montano, the soca music star who started his career when he was 7, will bring the wild and steamy spirit of Trinidad Carnival to Kings County at the Bandshell. In 2011, he released his 35th album, and won in six categories at the International Reggae and World Music Awards: Most Outstanding Stage Personality, Best Male Calypso/Soca Entertainer, Best Caribbean Entertainer, Most Outstanding Show Band, Best Soca Band and The King of Soca.
Where/When: , 336 3rd St, Saturday, July 21 at 8 p.m.
Why Go: Piper Theatre presents a little Gothic horror to put a chill in the night air! "The Island of Dr. Moreau" sends up enough Victorian-style shivers to keep audiences on the edge of their lawn chairs, for this mystical and savage tale of science run amok. Piper's original adaptation of the H.G. Wells’ novel uses physical storytelling to heighten Moreau’s sense of otherworldly spookiness - as if a mad doctor, a mysterious island and strange beasts (or so they appear) weren't enough. All ages welcome.
