If you are looking for something to do tonight in Washington DC or in Portland, Oregon this weekend, you have the choice of seeing a live Star Trek performance. You can see Shakespeare in the original Klingon in our nation’s capital tonight, or "Space Seed" performed in a park in Portland this weekend, both for free, details below.
Star Trek V and Shakespeare in Klingon tonight in DC
All summer long Crystal City is sponsoring an outdoor free series of Star Trek films on every Monday at sun down (tonight that is around 8:30 PM). Tonight’s showing is Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. And each week there is also a special bonus event and tonight that is a performance of Shakespeare in Klingon by the Washington Shakespeare Company. And on next Monday, Star Trek linguist Mark Okrand will be on hand.
The show is held at Crystal City, 18th and Bell St, Washington DC. More information crystalcity.org.
Space Seed Live in Portland weekends this summer (starting this weekend)
Last summer the Atomic Arts company performed live versions of the classic Star Trek episode "Amok Time" over a series of weekends in Portland, OR (see TrekMovie story). This summer they are doing it again with live performances of "Space Seed". Performances are free every Saturday and Sunday at 5 PM in Woodland Park.
