What To Do This Weekend
Yew Dell Botanical Gardens in Crestwood, Kentucky, will fill with music this evening with the first night of Bourbon & Botanicals, its live summer music series that will continue Thursday nights through August 27. Tonight’s featured band will be Wayward Feet. Attendance will be limited to 150 people each night on a first-come, first-serve basis. Read more about their COVID-19 guidelines.
As the Tony-Award winning musical Hamilton: An American Musical premieres on Disney+ Friday, historian Dr. Richard Bell will host a virtual talk at 6pm called Hamilton: How the Musical Remixes American History, which will explore the musical phenomenon to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show-business. He’ll explain what the musical got right (and got wrong) about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, and the birth of the United States and about why that matters. Purchase a spot and the Zoom link will be emailed to you. Presented by Locust Grove.
