A free staged reading of Bertolt Brecht’s 1939 play “A Life of Galileo” will be held at the Montauk Library on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Directed by Josh Gladstone, artistic director of the John Drew Theater, the reading will take advantage of a new translation that makes the play’s dialogue relevant to contemporary issues of humanism versus fundamentalism.
The fifth annual Montauk Music Festival will begin today with an opening party at Gurney’s Inn and continue through the weekend.
The event offers some 100 artists playing at every possible venue in Montauk. A full list and schedule of the performers is available on the festival website, themontaukmusicfestival.com. Almost every style of music, with the exception of classical, can be heard: alternative, rock, folk, pop, Americana, reggae, blues, jazz, bluegrass, flamenco, rap, hip-hop, country, and metal.
