Here’s a roundup of events taking place this weekend in New Britain:

  Political maneuvering, angry aristocrats, backstabbing treachery - all too familiar scenarios, especially if your name is Julius Caesar. Hole in the Wall Theater, 116 Main St., raises the curtain tonight on its take on the classic play written by William Shakespeare and adapted by HITW member William Arnold. Presented in a modern-day office, universal themes prove as true today as they did in ancient Rome.

Performances run at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through June 17. A Sunday matinee takes 2 p.m. on June 4. The June 2 show is the “Pay What You Can” performance in which patrons make a donation of their choice for tickets.

General admission tickets are $20, $15 for seniors and students with ID. Reservations can be made by calling 860-229-3049 and tickets can be purchased at www.hitw.org .

Trinity-on-Main, 69 Main St., hosts Vinyl Revolution and Beyond Purple on Saturday in an evening of live rock music from the 1970s and 80s featuring Jimi Bell.

General admission tickets are $10. Early bird seats are $5. Concessions and a full cash bar will be available.

Parking in the Szczesny Garage opposite Chestnut Street is free.

For more information, call 860-229-2072 or visit trinityonmain.org.

  The New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington St., on Sunday will host its regular American Masterpieces Walk-In Tour. The one-hour tour, a survey of three centuries of NBMAA’s masterpieces, provides a lively overview of the permanent collection from the Colonial period through today.
