BrooklynONE productions created the Brooklyn Shakespeare Festival in 2012. When the renovations and revival of the Overlook at Owls Head was complete, there was an interest to use it as a place for Arts & Culture. bkONE was asked to contribute an event. There could be no stronger summer tradition in NYC than producing Shakespeare in the park. Armed with just a few short weeks of rehearsal, a revue of the best of the best Shakespeare skits were produced, and the Brooklyn Shakespeare Festival was born. Since its inception, it has produced Romeo and Juliet, Midsummer Nights Dream, Julius Caesar, Measure for Measure, Much Ado About Nothing and this year Taming of the Shrew. Each production utilizing the natural environment of the Overlook location, audience interaction and the tremendous acting chops of each years cast. In some years art vendors and musicians help to round out the day. Now truly a South Brooklyn tradition – that has welcome visitors from ALL over the city and beyond!
