IN oRBit: WELL-FED BY MOONLIGHT
Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit has the goods on a pair of events scheduled to invade the major stages of the borough these next few midweek nights and we’ll take the time right here to remind you all of the ongoing Dine Downtown promotion that continues Tuesdays and Wednesdays through the month, at select RB restaurants.
First up is A Midsummer Nights Dream, the latest Shakespearean shake-‘n-bake from Two River Theater Company and visionary artistic director Aaron Posner. We have a Q&A with Posner (the guy who made the banks of the Navesink run red with TRTC’s bloody good Macbeth) on this classic comic frolic of faeries and lovers and royals and actors and asses. The show starts a three-week engagement with discounted previews Tuesday and Wednesday night; perfect for pairing with a lush salad or anything else that smacks of the great outdoors.
Then there’s Lewis Black, the gravel-voiced gadfly whose hilarious brand of vein-popping vitriol is usually an inducement to agita but with another triumphal two-night stand at the Count Basie lined up for Wednesday and Thursday (and another chance to get a Dine Downtown prix fixe on Wednesday), this finely aged Black Label could be a splendid post-dinner digestif to your culinary experience of choice.
It’s all on the menu, along with highlights from the day and nights to come, only in Red Bank oRBit.
