A show for the bird

The Brooklyn Paper

GO Brooklyn loved “The Seagull” when it was at the Brooklyn Academy of Music starring Ian McKellan, but we’re equally excited for Brooklyn College’s production, directed by Mary Robinson, which opens on Thursday, Nov. 1. This inventive show will feature on-stage seating, so the audience can share in the limelight. For information, call (718) 951-5666 or visit

On Friday, Nov. 2, the Heights Players will begin performances of “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,” a show about a schoolteacher in 1930s Scotland who flies in the face of the very conservative Marcia Blaine School for Girls. Note to concerned Brooklyn parents: the school is fictional and doesn’t take applications. For information, call (718) 237-2752 or visit

Wear a sweater on Saturday, Nov. 10, when Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College hosts the ultra-modern Iceland Dance Company in their debut U.S. performance. Stick around after the show for a question-and-answer session with Artistic Director Katrin Hall. For information, call (718) 951-4500 or visit www.brooklyncenter

On Oct. 28, at 6 pm, check out the “Clown Funeral,” the closing piece of the Brick Theater’s “New York Clown Theatre Festival.” Mourners — dressed in black or in multi-colored wig! — will meet at North Seventh Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and march in a procession back to the Brick where a celebration will commence. For information, call (718) 907-6189 or visit

And if trick-or-treating isn’t your scene, drop into the Brooklyn Academy of Music for famed choreographer John Jasperse’s “Misuse Liable to Prosecution,” a performance piece for which everything on stage, save the lithe dancers, is made from found materials. For information, call (718) 636-4100 or visit
