Physics
Annandale: Bard College: Through various anecdotes, some true, some made up, but always plausible, I start with Thales, move on to Empedocles and Aristarchus, spend some time with Plato and Aristotle, then jump all the way to Einstein. All along, I use a simple language, understandable to everyone and hopefully entertaining. My goal is to explain how the world in which we live is at the same time simpler and more complex, but most of all more marvelous and fascinating, than most people think. Without trying to sell myself as a specialist of scientific thinking, which I'm not, my goal is to explain why physics is for me a constant source of inspiration and wonder. The show is free and open to the public. However, we ask that you reserve a seat by emailing Hal Haggard ([email protected]). The show will be in Olin Hall and doors will open at 6:30 pm. The show will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.  http://www.bard.edu/news/events/
Theater
Rhinebeck: Center for Performing Arts: The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,​ based upon the book by Muriel Sparks, by Jay Presson Allen. The story follows Jean Brodie’s flamboyant attempts to infiltrate a traditional school curriculum with uncensored European art and culture. Eventually, her efforts become focused on four girls, “the crème de la crème” as she calls them. With the girls by her side, Brodie goes on various outings and discusses her plans for each of the girls. Meanwhile, she leads along two male faculty members, the straight-laced choirmaster Gordon Lowther, and the smitten-but-married artist Teddy Lloyd. These affairs ignite the imaginations of the girls, but also alert them to the power of free-choice in shaping their own lives. Veteran director Michael Juzwak and assistant director Tina Reilly shape this classic Tony Award Winning play with skill and vision into a production that is not to be missed. Says Juzwak, “The play resonates today because it reminds us to think for ourselves.  When we get so much noise from mentors and teachers and social media and the news outlets, we need to remember to make decisions on our own.  To listen to our inner voice and be who we are, not what someone else thinks we are.” 8 pm.   (845-876-3080)  http://centerforperformingarts.org
Theater
New Milford, CT: TheatreWorks: All My Sons by Arthur Miller. All My Sons tells the story of an American family caught up in the struggle between personal responsibility and duty to their country. Joe Keller, a successful, self-made man has done a terrible thing: during World War II, hurriedly trying to meet an order from the Army, he knowingly sold them defective airplane parts which later caused the planes to crash and killed 21 men. He engineered his own exoneration and falsely turned in his business partner; now, his son is about to marry the partner's daughter, the affair is revisited, and his lie of a life is revealed. 8 pm. 860-350-6863  http://theatreworks.us/shows/display_show.php?show_id=allmyson

American history
Millbrook: Merritt Bookstore: Reckless: Henry Kissinger and the Tragedy of Vietnam | Robert Brigham. Using newly available archival material, Robert K. Brigham punctures the myth of Kissinger as an infallible mastermind. Instead, he constructs a portrait of a rash, opportunistic politician whose personal political rivalries and strategic confusion doubled the length of the Vietnam War.  Now, perhaps for the first time, we can see the full scale of that tragedy and the machinations that fed it. Join us upstairs at Merritt Bookstore with Robert Brigham for a discussion of this fascinating topic with opportunities to ask questions and get your books signed! Noon, free. 845-677-5857  https://www.merrittbooks.com

Theatre live in HD
Millerton: Moviehouse: King Lear by William Shakespeare. Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. 6 pm.
