This summer most cities across the country will host a litany of  outdoor concerts, dance events and of course the opportunity to channel your inner Elizabethan by seeing live Shakespeare under the summer blue skies.  Fusing the music and themes from American rock icon Pearl Jam’s ground-breaking album, 10, with a gritty Lower East Side dynamic, A King of Infinite Space relates Shakespeare’s 17th century literature to 21st century New York City.
