Five things to do in Brooklyn this week!


July 20

Natti dresser

The young alt-pop piano singer-songwriter (and snappy dresser) Natti Vogel will release three new songs from his upcoming album “Serving Body” in a concert that combines elements of cabaret, rock, jazz, and comedy. And he will drop another three songs at another show in the same venue on July 27.

7 pm at National Sawdust [80 N. Sixth St. at Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, (646) 779–8455], www.nationalsawdust.org. $20.


July 21

Dog runway

The annual doggy fashion contest outside of Freddy’s bar will have a new format this year — it will be a fashion parade, where everypuppy is a winner! Dress up your pooch and let it pose along the red carpet running along Fifth Avenue. The canine parade will be followed by a funky roller disco party, and an empanada eating contest (for humans).

5 pm outside Freddy’s Bar [627 Fifth Ave. between 17th and 18th streets in Greenwood Heights, (718) 768–0131, www.freddysbar.com]. Free.


July 22

Minister of silly walks

Legendary comedian John Cleese, of the comedy troupe Monty Python, the sitcom “Fawlty Towers,” the movie “A Fish Called Wanda,” and more great things than we can count, will introduce his very silly film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” and then discuss his long career and take questions from the audience.

Holy man: John Cleese will introduce his film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and then chat with the audience at Kings Theatre on July 22.

Summer lovin’

The New York Classical Theatre will present a pair of star-crossed lovers under the stars, when it brings “Romeo & Juliet” to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The company’s “panoramic theater” style will keep the audience moving from one location to the next as the action moves from the streets of Verona to the Capulet crypt.

7 pm at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier One [Old Fulton Street at Furman Street in Dumbo, (718) 222–9939, www.newyorkclassical.org]. Free.


July 25

Eat me

A mix of families and stoners will gather under the stars tonight to watch a trippy film about a little girl eating mushrooms, talking to cats, and generally freaking out. And before the screening of Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland,” the Morricone Youth orchestra will play some psychedelic tunes inspired by the film.

7 pm at Prospect Park Long Meadow North (Enter at Grand Army Plaza at Eastern Parkway in Prospect Park, www.prospectpark.org/summermovie). Free.

Wherefore art thou Romeo?: Ian Antal, center, plays Romeo in the New York Classical Theater’s production of “Romeo & Juliet,” opening in Brooklyn Bridge Park on July 24.
