It’s never too early to introduce your child to the joys of Walt Whitman.
And Compagne de’ Colombari’s free musical-theater adaptation of the poet’s great work, “Song of Myself,” is a great place to start.
“More Or Less I Am” features original music performed by an international mix of actors, musicians, and children speaking and singing Whitman’s words.
Members of the audience will also be encouraged to play a role during the all-ages performances.
You’ll have two opportunities to catch the show: the first, on Sept. 10 at the Brooklyn Historical Society, and the next day on Sept. 11, at the Old Stone House, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11.
“More Or Less I Am” at the Brooklyn Historical Society [128 Pierrepont St. at Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 222-4111], Sept. 10 at 2 pm, and at the Old Stone House [Fifth Avenue at Third Street in Park Slope, (718) 768-3195], on Sept. 11 at 3 pm. Free. For info, visit www.colombari.org.
