Midsummer adventure doesn’t require leaving the city, and we’ve got plenty of fantastic local events picked out for you to enjoy over the next few days. This weekend is your chance to star in one of Time Square Arts’ amazing Midnight Moment films (this one involves crawling!); to see three new plays in development by the National Theater Company on Governor’s Island; and to tour Soho’s only gay and lesbian museum for a powerhouse two person photo show. You can also get in on a game of handball with a bunch of artists, learn about how hive design can help bees, or get up close and personal with MoMA PS1’s Young Architects winner on an exclusive tour hosted by the AIA New York.
