Time Out says

Ditmas Park porches are serving as a stage for Shakespeare's sonnets this month when the "Shakespeare on Stratford" production comes to Stratford Road. The free festival is produced by the Brave New World Repertory Theatre, which will place actors dramatizing sonnets on the porches of about a dozen homes on April 23. After the mini-performances, the actors and music director of NYU Steinhardt's Adult Chorus Nancy Shankman will gather in the middle of Stratford Road and lead a series of madrigals, or songs from the Renaissance for several voices, like "Now is the Month of Maying." As the singing wraps up, the group will part to either side of the street for a performance that will begin as a courtly dance and transform into Afro-Haitian steps choreographed by Sheila Anozier, who is Haitian-American. Reservations are required!
