Playwright Robert Brustein was all smiles at Back Deck after the world premiere of his play “The Last Will” at The Modern. The final installment in Brustein’s trilogy examining the life of William Shakespeare is being produced by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and runs through Feb. 23. Director Steven Maler ’s cast includes Allyn Burrows , head of Actors’ Shakespeare Project, Brooke Adams , Stacy Fischer, Merritt Janson, Jeremiah Kissel, and Billy Meleady. . . . Chinatown patriarch Frank Chin celebrated the Year of the Snake with hundreds of friends at China Pearl over the weekend. Guests included Mayor Tom Menino and wife Angela, Treasurer Steve Grossman , Senator Elizabeth Warren , Congressman Stephen Lynch , Paul Foster of the Massachusetts Sports and Entertainment Commission, DA Dan Conley , and WGBH’s Emily Rooney . . . . Actor/comedian Nick Offerman , who’s perhaps better known as Ron Swanson on “Parks and Recreation,” was at the Wilbur Theatre over the weekend, where he performed a sort of one-man show that included a few musical numbers. Wilbur boss Bill Blumenreich was on hand and said hello to Offerman afterward.

Correction: Because of incorrect information provided to the Globe, an earlier version of this item about Robert Brustein’s play, “The Last Will,” was incorrect. It should have said the play runs through Feb. 23 at The Modern.
