July 4th is barely a memory but there's plenty to events to look forward to in the Hamptons and East End. This week, art fairs and benefits spring to the forefront in the Hamptons event calendar. There's one art fair opening its doors in Bridgehampton with a second art fair announced and previewed at a panel discussion and reception in Southampton. Specifically, expect to find Market Art + Design opening with a VIP preview on Thursday with the fair continuing through Sunday. The Art Panel and Reception Event takes place on Wednesday in Southampton with the Ad Art Show debut announced for a 2018 NYC appearance.

Hamptons art fairs aside, Bay Street Theater opens its second Main stage production this week with Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's "Intimate Apparel."

“Intimate Apparel” Opens at Bay Street

Bay Street Theater presents “Intimate Apparel” from July 4 - 30, 2017. Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony nominee Lynn Nottage,  the Bay Street production is directed by Bay Street's Artistic Director Scott Schwartz and stars Kelly McCreary as Esther Mills (McCreary currently appears on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Maggie Grace on television's ABC network). The cast of "Intimate Apparel" features Portia as Mrs. Dickson; Blake DeLong as Mr. Marks; Julia Motyka as Mrs. Van Buren; Edward O'Blenis as George and Shayna Small as Mayme.

"Intimate Apparel" tells the story of Esther Mills, a skilled African American seamstress with her own successful business in 1905, making lingerie for society ladies and “ladies of the night.” Lonely, she searches for something more in her life and unearths truths long hidden in the deepest recesses of her heart, changing all her relationships forever. Those impacted include a poetic love with a Caribbean laborer working far away on the Panama Canal, complicated friendships with different women and a growing bond with a Hasidic shopkeeper who shares his exquisite finds of fabrics and maybe something deeper.

Tickets are $30 to $125 with special rates for Students and those under 20 and 30 years old. Click here to purchase tickets online and for details.

Bay Street Theater is located at 1 Bay St, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. www.baystreet.org.

The Third Annual Southampton Jewish Film Festival Kicks Off

The first film of the Third Annual Southampton Jewish Film Festival will be screened at Guild Hall on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. This year's festival, in collaboration with the Chabad Southampton Jewish Center, will take place in two locations, the Southampton Arts Center and Guild Hall East Hampton.

“The People vs. Fritz Bauer” (2015) Germany, 105 minutes will be screened. After WWII, most former fascist officials, including those in the judiciary, showed no sense of guilt about Nazi crimes, claiming they had only been following orders. Bauer, a German Jew, was sent to a concentration camp in the 1930s. In 1956, Bauer became state attorney general in Frankfurt and one of the few prominent lawyers who had not had a career in the Third Reich. In 1958, Bauer, succeeded in a class action lawsuit, consolidating numerous individual claims in the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials, the proceedings of which opened in 1963. Working with Mossad, he was instrumental in the capture of Adolf Eichmann, bringing him to trial in Israel.

The Third Annual Southampton Jewish Film Festival continues through August 29, 2017 at Southampton Arts Center and Guild Hall.

Tickets are $15 for general admission and $7.50 for children under 12. Guild Hall is located at 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937. www.guildhall.org. www.scc-arts.org.
