There’s something extraordinary happening in Brooklyn this week. Its a revival. Of course, this is an artsy part of New York with a bit of a history of revivals. Yet, somehow these recreations of past works always seem significant. The work being revived is “Einstein on the Beach” by Phillip Glass and Robert Wilson and it is being revived by the Brooklyn Academy of Music which also likes to go by BAM. The performances are occurring all week, ending this Sunday. If you want to get some more information, this New York Times article sums it up pretty well. “Einstein” is a work that has gone through many failed revivals, and is not likely to live through many more. If you’re in the neighborhood, you should definitely take a look.
