Grant Stewart Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

Born in Toronto, Canada on June 4, 1971, Grant Stewart was exposed to the music of Charlie Parker, Wardell Gray and Coleman Hawkins by his father, a high-school English teacher and semiprofessional guitarist. Father and son often played together for hours on end. It was through these early experiences and his father's encouragement that Stewart first developed a strong ear for melody, style, and improvisation. He began with the alto saxophone at age 10, and when he was 14 his first teacher, noted Toronto bandleader Pete Schofield, invited him to play professionally in Schofield's Big Band. At 17 he switched to the tenor saxophone and was soon playing with such master saxophonists as Pat Labarbara and Bob Mover. Stewart considers Mover to be one of his greatest teachers and among his strongest influences along with Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Don Byas, and Lester Young. Since moving to New York City at the age of 19, Stewart has studied with such masters as Donald Byrd, Barry Harris, and Joe Lovano, and performed with Curtis Fuller, John Hendricks, Clark Terry, Etta Jones, Bill Charlap, Frank Gant, Dan Barret, Bob Mover, Brad Mehldau, Russell Malone, Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstei...

Jon Beshay Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

"I play music because I like to listen to music, and when I'm playing I'm in charge of what I'm hearing." Jonathan Beshay-jazz saxophonist, bandleader, and composer-says that there's no other agenda when his group takes the bandstand. Fortunately for audiences, Beshay likes to hear good music. His first role models were the old masters of jazz (John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young) but it would be a mistake to assume that modern music isn't fair game for Beshay. Artists such as Walter Smith and John Ellis make their way onto his list of influences, all uttered in the same breath as Coleman Hawkins and Woody Shaw. When pressed, he compares his musical process to the late Mulgrew Miller's; something that is rooted deep down in the history of jazz, but has blossomed outward into an art that is unique and new.

Through March 17, 2019 - New York

NEW YORK, January 28 -- From February 28 to March 17, Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. will present comedian/actor/broadcaster Donald E. Lacy Jr. in the New York debut of his one man show, "ColorStruck." The play was born in California's Bay Area and has been presented on college campuses around the country and at the National Black Theatre Festival. It was performed twice for the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus. The piece begins as a comedic autobiography of a sensitive, light-skinned African American man growing up in Oakland during the height of the Black Pride movement. It recounts how, as a child, Lacy was shunned by some people in the black community for not being dark enough and ostracized by some members in the white community for being too dark. It develops into an examination of how cultural assumptions underlie institutionalized racism and how they make us judge people by the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Director is Sean San Jose; soundscape and music are by Grammy nominee Tommy Soulati Shepherd. Born light-skinned to a dark-skinned African-American family in 1960s Oakland, Donald E. Lacy, Jr. was taunted by other boys as a half ... (read more)

Harolyn Blackwell Voice Master Class in Miller Recital Hall - Manhattan School of Music
March 18, 2019 - New York

Harolyn Blackwell (born November 23, 1955) is an American lyric coloratura soprano who has performed in many of the world's finest opera houses, concert halls, and theaters in operas, oratorios, recitals, and Broadway musicals. Initially known for her work within musical theater during the early 1980s, Blackwell moved into the field of opera and by 1987 had established herself as an artist within the soubrette repertoire in many major opera houses both in the United States and in Europe. Feeling that she was being "type cast" into one particular kind of role, Blackwell strove to establish herself within the lyric coloratura repertoire beginning in the mid-1990s. With the aid of such companies as Seattle Opera, Blackwell successfully made this move and is now an interpreter of such roles as Lucia in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Olympia in Offenbach's Les contes d'Hoffman. She has also periodically returned to musical theater performances throughout her career in staged productions, concert work, and recitals. Blackwell is known for her interpretations and recordings of the works of Leonard Bernstein

City Symphony - Anthology Film Archives
March 18, 2019 - New York

A collection of five distinct films centering around the city environment in a constant state of change, focusing on images of construction and destruction of modern structures in the urban environment. CONTINUUM CONTINUUM (1987) centers on the people who perform hard manual labor, such as tarring roofs, digging up streets, etc. DECONSTRUCTION SIGHT (1995) shows how modern methods of construction have rendered men and women insignificant behind mammoth tools of destruction. IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS (1997) documents the demolition of the Embarcadero Freeway, which was structurally damaged during the 1989 earthquake. THE LINE OF FIRE (1997) finds Angerame returning to his apartment building the day after it burned down. And PREMONITION (1995) shows the vacant Embarcadero Freeway after it has outlived its usefulness, but before its destruction.

Ec: L'atalante - Anthology Film Archives
March 18, 2019 - New York

Vigo's feature is outwardly a simple story: couple weds, couple has problems, couple reunites, but it's transformed by the director's poetic, idiosyncratic touch into a masterpiece. Cinematographer Boris Kaufman (the younger brother of Dziga Vertov) recalled, "He used everything around him: the sun, the moon, snow, night. Instead of fighting unfavorable conditions, he made them play a part." Already in delicate health (at times he had to direct from a stretcher), the winter location shooting may have pushed Vigo over the edge – he died of lung disease at age 29, three weeks after the Paris premiere.

The Free Press - The Graduate Center, CUNY
March 18, 2019 - New York

A free press, with its role as a watchdog of the government, is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Yet today journalists are under attack. They have been called “the enemy of the people” by our president and silenced by dictatorships around the world. Is freedom of the press in jeopardy, and what is at stake for the future of democracy? Peter Beinart—contributor to The Atlantic, CNN commentator, and a professor at The Graduate Center and CUNY’s Newmark School of Journalism—moderates a discussion featuring renowned journalist Bill Moyers, host and producer of many PBS programs; Anne Applebaum, columnist for The Washington Post; Graciela Mochkofsky, award-winning reporter in South America and the U.S. and professor at the Newmark School of Journalism; and Jelani Cobb, staff writer at The New Yorker. Part of the series The Promise and Perils of Democracy. This project is made possible in part with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

New Roadmaps for Asia: The 'Free and Open Indo-Pacific' and the 'Quad' - Asia Society and Museum
March 19, 2019 - New York

The last two years have seen a rise in uncertainty and anxiety in much of Asia, as long-standing assumptions about regional security have been called into question. Meanwhile, two ideas are gaining traction: the "Free and Open Indo-Pacific" (FOIP) and the Quadrilateral Security Dialogues (the "Quad") — made up of Australia, India, Japan, and the U.S. Both ideas are generally credited to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with the Quad first raised in his vision for Japan in 2006, and the FOIP first used in his speech to the Indian parliament in 2007. Both ideas may alter the geopolitical order of the region, and shape the nature of U.S. engagement with more than half the world's population.

Dams and water systems may seem like unlikely subjects for acclaimed directors, but strangely enough everyone from Ermanno Olmi and Jean-Luc Godard to prolific American independent filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson have made fascinating films about those very things. Both Olmi and Godard began their careers with lyrical short works documenting the construction of dams, while Everson's SOUND THAT depicts the employees of the Cleveland Water Department on the hunt for leaks in Cuyahoga County's water system. The program also includes two Canadian non-fiction films, Gordon Sparling's PICKING LOCKS and Roger Blais's THE DIKES.

Rr: Last Taboos Literary Salon - KGB Bar
March 19, 2019 - New York

LAST TABOOS LITERARY SALON: CUBAN MAFIA NIGHT Join Tony Perrottet in conversation with T.J. English about his bestseller The Corporation, a gripping tale of gangsters, drugs, violence, sex and murder that has been dubbed "a Cuban version of The Godfather" by Deadline Hollywood. By the mid-1980s, the American underworld was a vicious melting pot of powerful criminal tribes. The most feared was the Cuban mob. This organization of exiles, ruthlessly led by a kingpin named "battle", was so cold-blooded it was known on both sides of the law as "The Corporation". Drawing on first-hand accounts and deep research, and with the blistering prose that established him as "America's top chronicler of organized crime", T.J. English's The Corporation reveals how a generation of Cuban refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hitmen, and their families got caught up in a very American saga of empire building, criminal enterprise and revolution.

The Path Of Oil - Anthology Film Archives
March 20, 2019 - New York

"In the interval between BEFORE THE REVOLUTION and PARTNER, Bertolucci directed his only substantial documentary, a fascinating exploration of the 'path of oil,' following its extraction in Iran to its dispersal throughout Europe. Commissioned by Eni, the nationalized petroleum company of Italy, Bertolucci's meditation on the complex process of gas production seems nonetheless slyly preoccupied by the colonial enterprise underlying it; Middle Eastern nations supply the raw materials of modernity but don't benefit from its advancements. Divided into three parts, Bertolucci's grandly shot black-and-white film experiments with the nonfiction form as he discovers aesthetic riches buried in its substrate." –Steve Seid, PACIFIC FILM ARCHIVE

Ladies Day by Alana Valentine - Dixon Place
March 21, 2019 - New York

Madeleine Diggins It's Ladies Day at the horse races in remote Broome, Australia. The fabulous and fearless Mike is at the center of fashion and debauchery. Underneath the glitz and glam, Mike is subjected to a much uglier and violent treatment. The verbatim storytelling reveals that old habits (and prejudices) die hard in Broome. Tolerance and acceptance are as well-performed as the fashion shows on race day. This play invites audiences to witness the experiences of victims: denial, shame, anger or guilt in a deliberately unapologetic Australian way.

MOCATalks: Five Cents A Can: Making Visible the Invisibles with Si Yan Wong - Museum of Chinese in America
March 21, 2019 - New York

Painter Si Yan Wong joins us to talk about her paintings of the canners (people who pick up cans and bottles to live) in our communities. She came to notice the canners when she started jogging in her neighborhood in 2015. From her observations, these canners are generally seniors, the indigents and the working poor. They weather extreme conditions by working in the sweltering heat in the summers and braving bone-chilling winds during the winters. Who are they? Where do they come from? What does it say about this affluent city when more and more people are rummaging through rat-infested garbage to locate cans and bottles to survive? Si Yan Wong is a painter whose socially-engaged art practice invites reflections and conversations into the contradictions and the unseen present in the everyday. Her current and on-going projects include "Five Cents A Can: Making Visible the Invisibles” that focuses on the people ("canners") who survive on picking up cans and bottles and their existence in a city with many of the "haves." Find her on Facebook for more information about her upcoming exhibits on the canners as well as on her other socially engaged projects. Tickets are $15 and incl... (read more)

The Experimental City - Anthology Film Archives
March 21, 2019 - New York

In the 1960s, frustrated by the growing problem of urban pollution, Athelstan Spilhaus, a visionary scientist and futurist comic strip writer, assembled a team of experts to develop a bold experiment: the Minnesota Experimental City (MXC). MXC would be the city of the future, a domed metropolis for 250,000 pioneering residents, built from scratch and using cutting-edge technology to prevent urban sprawl and pollution. It was a compelling vision, with powerful backers, hundreds of experts, and its own state agency. But things didn't quite go as planned, as explored in Chad Friedrichs's fascinating look back at the would-be city of tomorrow.

Snowpiercer - Anthology Film Archives
March 21, 2019 - New York

"South Korean director Bong Joon-ho, perhaps best known for the 2006 monster movie THE HOST, uses genre, with fantastical distortions, to comment upon social ills. SNOWPIERCER, co-written with Kelly Masterson, combines the outlandish disaster/thriller movie setup, akin to those seen in such 1970s films as THE CASSANDRA CROSSING or THE TOWERING INFERNO, with the recent vogue for apocalypse plotlines. Here the survivors of climate change circumnavigate a frozen planet in the cars of a ceaseless train. A perversion of the railway's original function to bring civilization to remote areas, the Snowpiercer is a self-contained society hurtling through desolation. As the train speeds along its course, the negative effects of an imposed infrastructure corrode from within, leading everyone towards inevitable catastrophe. Tilda Swinton stars in one of her most unforgettable roles." –Rebecca Cleman

Liz Vice's sound is a fusion of Gospel and R&B, with dynamic and soulful vocals, and lyrics, deeply rooted in spirituality, that give her work a timeless feel. Vice got a knack for performing early. She was raised by her mother as the middle of five children. Every morning growing up, she was awaken by her Mother's voice singing "rise and shine and give God the glory." She also found herself frequently stealing away to the basement to dance and lip sync songs from the radio, and soundtracks from her favorite films. Liz taught herself how to play piano, marking the notes on the piano using blue painter's tape on the the notes of a keyboard, placed by her friends who were taking piano lessons. Her Aunt bought her headphones that she would make young Liz sit with on her head in the living room for hours mimicking the notes she would hear from an instrumental CD.

The Land Of Wandering Souls - Anthology Film Archives

Panh's observational documentary follows a poor, unnamed Cambodian family over a four-month period as they travel through the country engaging in the back-breaking work of laying fiber optic cables.

As the family marches across the nation, digging holes in the ground, it is the unresolved traumas of the nation's recent past that are exhumed and encountered, and Panh's open-eyed gaze that records it.

What must we give up to become something else?"

Reichsautobahn - Anthology Film Archives
March 22, 2019 - New York

"'Where Germany ends,' Hitler once said, 'the potholes begin.' And so he set about engineering the massive public works project known as the Autobahn. Hailed as a hedge against unemployment, a stimulant for a sluggish economy, a boon for car owners, and an efficient network for military transport, REICHSAUTOBAHN forwards the notion that from its conception the Autobahn 'wasn't to be just a road, it had to be a cultural institution.' Accordingly, Bitomsky states that the Nazis didn't develop the idea of the uberhighway, they simply formulated the aesthetics of the monumental road. REICHSAUTOBAHN drives headlong into the cultural politics of a 'road without obstacles,' the perfect symbol for a nation seeking extreme unification. And as with all dictatorial symbols, cultish adorations spread throughout the arts. There were Autobahn poems and novels, Autobahn paintings, Autobahn movies and, even, Autobahn oratorios. These propagandistic praises became the extended facade to a sweeping architecture without ornamentation, 'not the shortest but the noblest connection between two points.' Towards the end of the documentary, Bitomsky segues to black-and-white shots of the highway today. Con... (read more)

The Kamau Adilifu Quartet - Symphony Space
March 22, 2019 - Manhattan

"One for Sonny" is the working title of our concert, with the "Sonny" in question being the late saxophonist Cornelius "Sonny" Fortune. Sonny died unexpectedly late last year and I, for one, feel his absence deeply. He was my closest musical associate from the time I joined his then new band about 45 years ago. I don't believe anyone would say that we played alike. Rather, our individual styles seemed to compliment each other. More importantly, we seemed to think about music in similar ways, both in long talks off the bandstand as well as in musical conversation on the bandstand. Oftentimes, we'd sit in his car after a late night gig and talk until well after sunup. Over and over again in those rap sessions we'd endeavor to solve the world's problems regarding politics, race, the business of jazz, you name it. Sonny's passing brings an end to our marathon chats. What remains, however, is the style of music that we shared. And, on the evening of March 22nd, we'll be playing that music, with Sonny's fiery spirit and unrelenting passion in our mind and in our hearts. We hope you'll decide to share the evening with us. - Kamau Adilifu

Rock This Town! Backstage in Cleveland: The Stories You Never Heard & the Swag You Never Saw - The Cutting Room
March 22, 2019 - New York

Fran Belkin's collection of t-shirts wound up in boxes in the attic, until one day she realized these mementos—chronicling over thirty years of Cleveland rock and roll history—could illustrate the incredible story of a most unusual family business: Belkin Productions. The shirts and swag paint a picture of the times, the music, the bands and the concert promotion company her husband Jules and his brother Mike built from the back room of their father's clothing store into a powerhouse on the national music scene. And unlike the concert tees the rest of us wore, these shirts were designed and produced in very small numbers as swag for the bands and crew, rarely seen beyond backstage. In Rock This Town!, Fran's collection is artfully woven together with vintage snapshots, concert photography, and intimate stories—shared by the Belkin Productions crew who lived them. Rock photographer Janet Macoska calls this book "one of the only memory albums ever made that gives an inside glimpse at concert production and promotion." This book is for those of us who were out front, standing drenched in a World Series of Rock downpour, singing along to every word of our favorite song, Bic lighters in... (read more)

Through March 22, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Roots and Wings, a group exhibition on view March 2 through March 22, 2019. Roots and Wings features twelve artists whose works speak to the tension between political and social aspiration and the obstacles presented by everyday pressures. This exhibition includes James Chisholm, Markeith Woods, Diana Linsse, Poonam Verma, Roberta Caviglia, Teona Titvinidze-Kapon, Jon Kraja, Vasant Dora, Eunhyue Shin, Katha Rossein, Emil Silberman, Raul Mariaca Dalence and Yoram Kafkafi. Roots and Wings is an exhibition of works that rest somewhere on the continuum between figuration and abstraction. Yet, all of the works share in spatially and visually embodying the drama of historic aspiration. With themes ranging from the depiction of battlefields, to death under moonlight, to the more interior struggles of domestic life and the pressures of femininity, Roots and Wings communicates a melancholic atmosphere which isn’t without a tincture of hope. Roots and Wings exhibits all the distinguishing characteristics of formalism, while showcasing all-too-familiar scenarios. In this way, the exhibition expresses the conatus of human aspiration as something that... (read more)

Ghp Exhibition: Rirkrit Tiravanija - Greenwich House Pottery
Through March 22, 2019 - New York

NEW YORK – The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. Tiravanija has transformed the gallery into a familiar environment that invites visitors to take a minute to sit, relax, have a drink and contemplate pottery. Tiravanija is known for creating similar installations and events that emphasize social engagement, as well as his traditional material-based art. He made a name for himself in the early '90s by eschewing typical visual arts practices and engaging audiences by cooking for them. He has continued this practice throughout the decades in nearly all subsequent installations and exhibitions, including during his 2017 residency at Greenwich House Pottery—cooking 3-inch thick porterhouse steak in his thrown custom-formulated flameware to make lunch for the Pottery's community. In Untitled (Billy Wilder doesn't like green tea), Tiravanija once again brings his material-based artwork together with his social practice. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tiravanija is a Thai artist widely recognized as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work defies media-based description, as his practice combines traditional object making, p... (read more)

The Path Of Oil - Anthology Film Archives
March 23, 2019 - New York

"In the interval between BEFORE THE REVOLUTION and PARTNER, Bertolucci directed his only substantial documentary, a fascinating exploration of the 'path of oil,' following its extraction in Iran to its dispersal throughout Europe. Commissioned by Eni, the nationalized petroleum company of Italy, Bertolucci's meditation on the complex process of gas production seems nonetheless slyly preoccupied by the colonial enterprise underlying it; Middle Eastern nations supply the raw materials of modernity but don't benefit from its advancements. Divided into three parts, Bertolucci's grandly shot black-and-white film experiments with the nonfiction form as he discovers aesthetic riches buried in its substrate." –Steve Seid, PACIFIC FILM ARCHIVE

Trans Film: The Films Of Suzie Silver, Program 1: Alternate Imaginaries - Anthology Film Archives
March 23, 2019 - New York

Over a career spanning the last thirty years, artist and filmmaker Suzie Silver has been persistently re-imagining human desires through the lenses of science fiction, drag, camp, and myth. We are thrilled to present two programs of her highly collaborative work, including early projects that helped define the canon of queer and trans video and performance, and new works that continue to expand upon it today. OBLIGATE SYMBIONTS OF COLUBUS GRAND takes us into an imagined cosmology 45.3 light years away where beings enact ritualized dance, while STINKHORN is the latest edition of Silver's work exploring fairy tales and mythic stories. ERIC MOE'S IDYLL reveals the mating rituals of forest nymphs, while THE HAPPIEST DAY creates a realm of innocence and pleasure in which historic performances are reenacted. A SPY: HESTER REEVE DOES THE DOORS is perhaps Silver's best-known work, wherein drag king Reeve performs to The Doors' "The Spy," clad as Jesus Christ with small, painted portraits on each breast. NEBULA creates an immersive kaleidoscopic sensory viewing experience, and FREEBIRD features Silver performing in drag the infamous Southern rock anthem that inspired an entire generation of...

Once Upon A Time In The West - Anthology Film Archives
March 23, 2019 - New York

"The iconic opening sets an indelible scene: in a barren desert landscape in the American Old West, lone figures lurk around a remote railway station, waiting. The composer Ennio Morricone fills this scene with the sounds of weathered infrastructure, creaking under footfalls and whistling in the wind. When at last the train pulls in, its rhythmic huffing is monumental, signaling that the railway has an outsized impact on this land and its inhabitants. Along with the modern conveniences it brings, the train is a harbinger of violent upheaval; it is both a sustaining and destructive force. The original story was co-written by Leone, Dario Argento, and Bernardo Bertolucci, and features blue-eyed Henry Fonda cast convincingly against type as a cold-blooded villain." –Rebecca Cleman

Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York - Lincoln Center
Through March 23, 2019 - New York

Jerome Robbins was an inveterate observer, seeker, and creator. In diaries, drawings, watercolors, paintings, story scenarios, poems—and, especially, in dance—he reimagined the world around him. And New York dominated that world, where he was born one-hundred years ago and where he lived his entire adult life. Ideas of New York have long inspired artists but often the city serves as a backdrop in an artwork rather than the basis for plot, theme, and meaning. Robbins put the city at the center of his artistic imaginings. From Fancy Free—his breakout hit ballet in 1944—to the musical West Side Story on stage (1957) and screen (1961) and the ballets N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz (1958) and Glass Pieces (1983), Robbins explored the joys, struggles, grooves, routines, and aspirations of New York. And in recreating the city around him on stage, Robbins found a place for himself. Voice of My City traces Robbins' life and dances alongside the history of New York, inspiring viewers to see the city as both a muse and a home.

The Steel Beast - Anthology Film Archives
March 24, 2019 - New York

This daring collage of rhythms, abstractions, superimpositions, and wild shots of the railroad and other machines, made by the great German photographer Zielke, was originally commissioned to celebrate the centennial of the Nuremburg-Furth railroad line, and later banned by the Third Reich for "decadent aesthetics." French film critic Jean Mitry made this film poem to honor the largest French steam locomotive, the Pacific. The montage of speeding wheels, pistons and gears; the parallel lines of rails and wires; a stoker furiously shoveling coal in concert with the score – together these elements visually and musically describe the exhilaration of the train's motion.

A spiritual medium/phone sex operator is called upon to help transport these nobodies into this carnal dream-dimension. Television monitors, radio frequencies, and orifices all become portals to access this dimension. The characters must ask, "What is dream? What is reality? What must we give up to become something else?"

Trans Film: Hanky Code - Anthology Film Archives
March 24, 2019 - New York

Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief code was largely used by gay men in the 1970s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In HANKY CODE, San Francisco's queer experimental film collective Periwinkle Cinema brings together queer and trans filmmakers across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature comprised of 25 short films. Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different color/fetish of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental to erotic and animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes according to the creative interpretation of the artist. Audience members are invited to flag their hankies at the screening.

Releasing Words: The Cut Paper Art of Deborah Ugoretz Opening Reception - Museum at Eldridge Street
Through March 31, 2019 - New York

Celebrate the opening of the Museum's newest exhibition, featuring intricate cut-paper art by Deborah Ugoretz. Ugoretz was already a working artist when she saw traditional Jewish paper cutting work for the first time. She was dazzled by this centuries-old tradition and its creative possibilities for "visualizing Judaism," and its ability to transform a simple piece of paper into a work of art that could release words into pictorial space. This exhibition will present a retrospective of the artist's work in cut paper, ranging from traditional ketubot (elaborately decorated marriage contracts), pieces inspired by Biblical texts and prayer to more recent work that considers the traditional as a starting point to explores themes and concepts in exciting and very contemporary ways. Brief remarks will be made by Museum staff and exhibition curators.

ST. PETER'S FOOT - Fort Washington Collegiate Church
Through April 06, 2019 - NY

ST. PETER'S FOOT, a UP Theater production, is a two-character play about Mike and Roma, a quirky middle-aged, self-absorbed, childless couple, who have no idea how hilariously miserable they are. On the eve of a long-planned trip to Italy, to scatter the ashes of Roma's deceased mother into the Po River, a gift is left at their door that causes them to question their marriage, their illusion of happiness, and their priorities. The play asks - and answers this question: Is love enough to conquer regret? Anna Theresa Cascio’s play also taps into the never-ending discussion around abortion and the right of choice, and the currently trending conversation about a lifestyle decision that many couples are making: to live a child-free life.

NEW YORK, January 27 -- To update one of its perennially popular productions and share it with a wider audience, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre (CAMT) will re-imagine its "Johannes Dokchtor Faust, a Petrifying Puppet Comedye," translated and directed by Vit Horejs, March 21 to April 7 at Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave., Manhattan. This classic of the Czech marionette repertoire is traditionally used to make fun of a king or a local mayor. The company's adaptation was initially developed in 1990 and its topical references will be updated to current times. The staging incorporates age-old technical tricks of Czech puppetry, including fire and thunder, hellish gargoyles and underwater creatures. The script is the first definitive American translation of the classic Czech text by the author known today only as "A.B." The production was developed by Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater between 1991 and 1994 and it became a favorite and definitive part of its repertoire.

Shareholder Value - Theater For the New City
Through April 14, 2019 - New York

THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY presents SHAREHOLDER VALUE, a new play by Tom Attea where stocks plummet and tensions soar. This play, which reunites the playwright with director Mark Marcante and composer Arthur Abrams, the team behind Heather Smiley for President, America’s Favorite Newscaster, and An American Worker is based loosely on the meltdown at General Electric. It centers around the struggles the CEO of a troubled conglomerate faces to deliver what he must every quarter, regardless of the problems the company runs into. The production will play a limited engagement from Thursday, March 21st through Sunday, April 14th at Theater For the New City (155 1st Avenue at East 10th Street). Like all CEO's of publicly held conglomerates, Dennis Holland of the fictional company Total Electric must deliver one thing: SHAREHOLDER VALUE.

Through April 28, 2019 - New York

In the wake of the 2018 midterm elections, ICP’s new exhibition "For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here?" explores the role of art and visual representation in American civic life through the work of the For Freedoms collective. The exhibition features work from their 50 State Initiative—composed of a network of over 300 artists and 200 institutional partners—which featured concurrent exhibitions, art installations, and public programs as well as a nationwide artist-designed billboard campaign in all 50 states including DC and Puerto Rico, in the lead up to the midterm elections. Also central to the 50 State Initiative is the collective’s series of photographs that re-envision American artist Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms paintings—depicting freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear, as articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union address—which will be on the view for the first time. For Freedoms’ stylized scenes of the everyday reference Rockwell’s iconic style while bringing new, more inclusive representations of the country to the discussion of our core values.

The series kicked off on November 12, 2018 with #NastyWomen, A Night of Female Resistance Comedy and runs through April 2019. "For our season of War & Peace, we knew that artists from the LGBTQ community would have a strong reaction to the theme. Coming out can often feel like war and creating a family can bring much needed peace. Our LGBTQ offerings this season have addressed the gamut, from Vietnam Veterans coming to terms with their sexuality to a TYA show with a non-gender binary protagonist to a piece about a modern family facing discrimination from within.  Our theater is a safe place for provocative work that will inspire conversation, debate and hopefully action," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director. 2018-2019 LGBTQ+ Series: The Baby Monitor  Different Translation  November 29 - December 16, 2018 Written by David Stallings, directed by Antonio Miniño  When Claire's concerns ...

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." With these words the Oxford professor J.R.R. Tolkien ignited a fervid spark in generations of readers. From the children's classic The Hobbit to the epic The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien's adventurous tales of hobbits and elves, dwarves and wizards have introduced millions to the rich history of Middle-earth.

Through May 23, 2019 - New York

Exciting news. We're inviting you to one big girly sleepover, where you share weird secrets about your body and let out all your feelings. Except, it's an hour, and guys can come. And we think the invitation is long overdue. There are SO many things that women go through with cheesy grins on our faces like nothing's happening! That's what we're expected to do, isn't it? Because if we complain about it, or cry about it, or really say anything about it, we're just being "girls." Welp, F that noise. This storytelling and show is an open conversation about the things we usually hide – FINALLY – cause the painfully real stuff is the funny stuff.

"Ever since I was a child, I can remember sitting in the theater, waiting as the lights went down for the magic to start. From the age of two, my mother would schlep us to see new worlds and experience foreign types of movement, sounds and music. She believed in exposing us to all parts of our imagination, building paths towards new unknowns. Here at the 14the Street Y Theater, we also believe that all children should experience that magic, sit excitedly for unknowns, and meet new characters for their imagination to take into new worlds.

Mean Girls - August-Wilson Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

Mean Girl Broadway Musical If you didn’t see Mean Girl back in the 2000s, then you probably didn’t have that great of a childhood. Most people might call it a chick flick, but in our opinion, it is one of the greatest teen movies of our generation. The people were in awe over our little mathematician. Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is... yes! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post We sometimes feel that our childhood is coming to life with musicals. First, it was Bring it On, then Heathers with several others in development. But, the musical for Mean Girls is already here. The Mean Girls Musical is a masterpiece from the great Fey. It’s based on her book and the movie of the same name. The musical was under construction since 2013. But, it was a moment of joy for every fan when it was announced on “Mean Girls Day” that their favorite movie was comi... (read more)

“Move Your Curves” Workshop at Ailey Extension - The Joan Weill Center for Dance
Through June 15, 2019 - New York

Ailey Extension is teaming up with Pretty BIG Movement to bring you a “Move Your Curves" workshop. Pretty BIG Movement, based in New York City, is a full-figured dance company specializing in various dance genres such as hip-hop, jazz, ethnic, and more. Founder and CEO Akira Armstrong realized there wasn't a platform for women with voluptuous curves in mainstream media, and so she created one. While auditioning for Full Figured Fashion Week, Akira found that she was surrounded by confident, plus-size women who were beautiful, curvaceous, and shared the same passion in dance. She seized that moment and started Pretty BIG Movement. By 2015, the voluptuous dance troupe performed in Ladies Of Hip-Hop, Carnival (choreographers' ball), Ms. Full Figured USA pageant, Female Hip-Hop Honors award show, Salt N Pepa, Lane Bryant campaigns ("I'm No Angel" and "Plus Is Equal"), Full Beauty commercial, Mz. 007 concert and NBC's America's Got Talent (season 10). Currently, Pretty BIG offers dance workshops in the tri-state area to the plus-size community, creating a No Judgment environment where individuals can feel comfortable dancing.

Among Others: Photography and the Group - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through August 18, 2019 - Manhattan

Composed chiefly of works in the Morgan's collection, this exhibition explores how photographers have represented the bonds uniting people, whether in group portraits or in serial imagery. In arranged sittings, form is content: when commissioned to photograph the royals of Germany and England at a wedding in 1894, James Russell and Son's Studio instinctively centered its composition around the family's matriarch, Queen Victoria. Camera artists sometimes insert themselves into the action, as Susan Meiselas did when mingling with carnival strippers, first to portray them behind the scenes and then to photograph those in the audience from a performer's perspective. Action can also be a pose: in 1970, when asked to create a positive poster image for the Gay Liberation Front, Peter Hujar asked the group's members to run toward him on the street, enacting their slogan, "Come Out!!" Ingenuity may be called for when one's subjects are all too well-known: a press photographer, Jean-Pierre Ducatez, appealed to the primal desires of Beatles fans by zeroing in on the lips of each band member, creating a captivating game of who's-who. Bringing together works from the 1860s to the present, Among... (read more)

Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 22, 2019 - Manhattan

The satirical scenes of the celebrated English artist William Hogarth (1697–1764) are iconic representations of eighteenth-century urban life at a time of great socio-economic disparity. An academic outsider and an activist, Hogarth was driven to innovate, creating new genres and modes of expression in his painting, printmaking, and drawing in his effort to elevate the status of British art. This exhibition will investigate the ways the artist used humor, satire, and political commentary to engage a broad audience and agitate for legislation and political goals. The exhibition features the Morgan's exceptional cache of six sheets preparatory for two of Hogarth's most revered print series, both issued in February 1751: Beer Street and Gin Lane and The Four Stages of Cruelty. The story of Hogarth's images reveal an artist who addressed the ills and injustices of life in a modern metropolis, exploring the connections between violence, crime, alcohol abuse, and cruelty to animals in ways that would amuse, occasionally shock, and edify his audience.

Through December 31, 2019 - New York

Dear Evan Hansen Tickets. Dear Evan Hansen Musical. Dear Evan Hansen Broadway. Dear Evan Hansen is the epitome of a modern musical.
