BY ANY OTHER NAME During my nine years as the director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, in Washington, D.C., Justice John Paul Stevens was a regular visitor (The Talk of the Town, August 5th & 12th). Every year, he would bring his clerks to see books in our collection that may have belonged to Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford. As Tyler Foggatt describes, Justice Stevens believed de Vere to be the author of Shakespeare’s works. We at the Folger revered Justice Stevens for his independent-mindedness. But his denial of Shakespeare’s authorship is founded on a conspiracy theory that no reputable Shakespeare scholar countenances. The historical evidence of Shakespeare’s career as an actor and a playwright—including praise of his greatness by his contemporaries—is clear and undeniable. Those interested in the question…

goings on about town: this week

When the Afropunk Festival débuted, in 2005, it was intended as a safe haven for black punks. As its popularity grew, so, too, did its embrace of the broader culture, and the marginalized soon found their space invaded by the mainstream. Nonetheless, the festival remains renowned for both its striking lineups and the equally remarkable fashion of its attendees. Included on this year’s staggering bill, running Aug. 24-25 in Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park, is Rico Nasty, whose raging punk-rap embodies the event’s original counterculture spirit. ART “Culture and the People” Museo del Barrio In 1969, when the artist-educator Raphael Montañez Ortiz was asked to develop a curriculum on Puerto Rican history and culture, his answer was to open a community museum, El Museo del Barrio, in a Harlem public-school classroom. This fiftieth-anniversary exhibition celebrates…

art: fall preview

The painter Amy Sherald, who has described herself as “an American realist, painting American people doing American things,” made headlines last year, when her official portrait of the former First Lady Michelle Obama was unveiled. The Hauser & Wirth gallery exhibits her latest luminous, color-washed figures. (Opens Sept. 10.) The Met Breuer surveys the fifty-year career of another American realist, the Latvian-born, New York-based painter Vija Celmins, whose crystalline renderings of night skies, seascapes, and spiderwebs convey the unfathomable mystery of the so-called known world. (Opens Sept. 24.) The comic genius Rube Goldberg once wrote, “The younger generation know my name in a vague way and connect it with grotesque inventions, but don’t believe that I ever existed as a person.” The Queens Museum reintroduces visitors to the Pulitzer Prize-winning illustrator…

night life: fall preview

As the dog days of summer give way to autumn’s cool, opportunities to catch a show beneath the sun and the stars are dwindling. Luckily, the Rooftop at Pier 17 offers myriad options: Z100’s Summer Bash (Aug. 29) gathers such crossover acts as the d.j. Marshmello, the country singer Kane Brown, and the man of the moment Lil Nas X. The Afrofuturistic singer and musician Janelle Monáe (Sept. 25) helps wind down the waterfront venue’s summer concert series, which officially wraps with Thievery Corporation (Oct. 11). Elsewhere, the stacked E.D.M. festival Electric Zoo (Aug. 30-Sept. 1) returns to Randall’s Island Park; Global Citizen (Sept. 28) calls on the star power of Queen + Adam Lambert, Pharrell, and Alicia Keys for its annual Central Park event; and the New York edition…

dance: fall preview

This autumn, New York is bursting with dance. Ayodele Casel, one of the city’s preëminent tap dancers and choreographers, will have her first full-evening show at the Joyce (Sept. 24-29), a collaboration with the Latin-jazz composer and bandleader Arturo O’Farrill. (Tap is enjoying a welcome resurgence, with women leading the way.) Casel and four other dancers will share the stage with O’Farrill’s band, tapping to a range of music styles, from rumba to bomba (a thrillingly percussive style from Puerto Rico) and, of course, Latin jazz. “It’s a family affair,” Casel says, “rooted in the need to communicate everything human.” The most recognizable element in Merce Cunningham’s “Summerspace,” from 1958, is its design. A Pointillist backdrop, by Robert Rauschenberg, glows with yellow, orange, red, blue, purple, and green dots; the dancers’…
