Harlem Bespoke: Outdoor theater returns to Harlem with the Classical Theatre of Harlem's production of Malvolio at Marcus Garvey Park in July.   One of the must-see experiences of summer! 

Tuesday-Sunday, July 8th-29th, 8:30PM, Malvolio at Richard Rodgers Amphitheater at Marcus Garvey Park, 122nd Street and Mount Morris Park West, FREE to the public.   An irreverent comedy and sequel to Shakespeare's Twelfth Night It’s wartime. A lowborn steward, Malvolio, has risen to the rank of general. He is determined to seek vengeance on a cast of characters who tormented him twenty years earlier. Malvolio encounters Volina, the daughter of Duke Orsino and Duchess Viola. Dismayed by the apathy of her fellow nobles, Volina tries to pass as male to join the war effort. When she falls in love with him, Malvolio is sure her ardent displays of unbridled passion and awkward love letters must be a trick. The family-friendly annual event is uptown's own version of Shakespeare in the Park but is more accessible and also a fantastic representation of black theater in the city.   Check out full dates and times on the official website and RSVP: LINK
