Here’s a rundown of the dates and the entertainment:

Forest Hills Stadium opens by 6 p.m. on show nights and LIRR customers are reminded that only the first four when cars of their train can stop at Forest Hills because the platform is too short to handle more. So, they should board the train using one of the first four cars to minimize delays caused when passengers have to walk through multiple cars to exit.
