I’m a fan of just about anything in a bar. Want me to humiliate myself by singing off-key in someone’s living room? Noooo. In a bar? Sign me up. Trivia night at the museum? Nope. In the forgiving atmosphere of a bar? Yessir. And putting The Bard in a bar? Oh, yes—it’s a given that I will absolutely appreciate plays and sonnets much more between sips of my adult beverage. Props, then, to Shakespeare in the Bar for making this dream a reality: they’ll be performing a somewhat rehearsed version of “Twelfth Night” at 7:30 p.m. Monday on the patio of Wild Detectives, 314 W. 8Th St. It’s probably not going to be the most nuanced performance you’ll ever experience, but there’s beer—which means the one-night-only event will be lighthearted, freewheeling and fun. Also: it’s free. Call 214-942-0108 for more information.
