An image promoting  THE SHYLOCK AND THE SHAKESPEAREANS by Edward Einhorn

THE SHYLOCK AND THE SHAKESPEAREANS is a darkly humorous retelling of The Merchant of Venice, written and directed by Edward Einhorn.

In ancient Venice, of sorts, a mob of white supremacists calling themselves the Shakespeareans has taken over public discourse. Jacob, a Jewish diamond merchant, finds himself entangled with Antonio, a member of the Shakespeareans. Jacob’s daughter Jessica has fallen in love with the son of Asian immigrants. And in Belmont, a young heiress named Portia subjects her suitors to a strange, nonsensical game. When Antonio’s business encounters hardship, he reneges on a debt with Jacob then spreads the rumor Jacob wants him dead. A trial in a kangaroo court follows.

The Kennedys return to WUSB’s Sunday Street Series!

Release show for Headwinds, a new studio album of original songs.

Sunday, August 27th at 5 P.M. at The Long Island Museum, Rte.25A, Stony Brook


We’ve often referred to The Kennedys as the ‘musical heart and soul’ of WUSB’s The Sunday Street Series. They played our very first show in February, 2004 and have returned many times for Kennedy’s shows as well as being an integral part of our annual Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration.

This show will be particularly special since Maura and Pete will bring with them original songs from a new studio album, Headwinds, which will see its official release on September 1st. You can expect the usual musical brilliance of an early evening with The Kennedys. Copies of the new album will be available for purchase at this show.

Please join us to welcome them back to our series. 

Advance sale tickets $25.00 (tickets previously purchased for our postponed April 2nd Kennedys show will be honored at the door.)

Tickets at the door, if available, $30.00 (cash only)

The Sunday Street Series is a collaboration of WUSB’s Sunday Street Series, The Long Island Museum, and The Greater Port Jefferson Arts Council.

Director Mary Harron Talks Dalíland & American Psycho on Tom Needham’s SOUNDS OF FIlM

DALÍLAND stars Ben Kingsley as the titular Salvador Dalí, one of the most world-renowned artists of the 20th century and focuses on the later years of the strange and fascinating marriage between Dalí and his wife, Gala (Barbara Sukowa), as their seemingly unshakable bond begins to stress and fracture.

Set in New York and Spain in 1974, the film is told through the eyes of James (Christopher Briney), a young assistant keen to make his name in the art world, who helps the eccentric and mercurial Dalí prepare for a big gallery show. Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Andreja Pejic and Ezra Miller also star.


Airs June 8, 6-8 PM.
