November 20, 2010 -

The Storm Theatre and Blackfriars Repertory Theatre present the third show of The Paul Claudel Project, NOON DIVIDE (Partage de Midi), originally BREAK OF NOON, by Paul Claudel, beginning October 29, 2010 at The Theatre of the Church of Notre Dame, 114th Street and Morningside Park (one block from Columbia University). NOON DIVIDE will be performed from October 29 – November 20, 2010 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm.

NOON DIVIDE is The Storm Theatre’s third offering from French playwright, poet and diplomat Paul Claudel. Considered one of the 20th century's greatest geniuses, his work has been neglected in the English speaking world. For NOON DIVIDE, Claudel used his own adulterous affair with Rosalie Vetch as inspiration, exploring human sexual passion, and its role within the grand design of salvation. What at first appears to be a tragedy of doomed love eventually reveals itself as a Divine comedy, much along the lines of his vast epic The Satin Slipper (also inspired by the aforementioned events.) On a ship bound for Hong Kong, a lonely civil servant meets a beautiful, vivacious married woman. Seduction and an ensuing torrid affair lead to surprising consequences. What at first seems a classic example of the French term amor fou (literally translated as "crazy love") eventually reveals itself to be just that, but in quite an unexpected way.

Fundamentals of Wine - The French Culinary Institute
Through November 21, 2010 -

This refreshing course takes the snobbery and mystery out of tasting and selling fine wine. Each class features in-depth tastings. Wines are poured, discussed, compared and demystified. Descriptors of aroma and taste suddenly make sense. Proper food pairings are revealed, and absorbed. Best of all, it's fun. Your appreciation of wine grows even more once you learn how your knowledge can become a profit center. You'll learn to merchandise wine in any context, from hospitality to corporate to retail. To create wine lists that "work" for guests, staffers, your food program, and your bottom line. And to cultivate salesmanship at the tableside with customers. In short, The Fundamentals of Wine teaches you to select wine intelligently, suggest it diplomatically, price it correctly, serve it beautifully, and train your staff to do the same. This course is a must for anyone in the culinary field who lacks these critical skills. 16 HOURS-Weekend Intensive Schedule Friday & Saturday, 9:00am - 5:00pm & Sunday, 9:00am - 2:00pm

Broken Nails. A Marlene Dietrich Dialogue - La Mama E.T.C. (The Club)
Through November 21, 2010 -

Beautiful, determined, intelligent, controversial--Marlene Dietrich was a transcendent symbol of femininity, a lady of strong character and clear mind, a woman with claws. A fascinating figure to both men and women, Dietrich's personality has also seduced Anna Skubik, a young Polish actress and puppeteer who brings this German star to life by animating her as a life-size doll. Presented with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, "Broken Nails. A Marlene Dietrich Dialogue" portrays Dietrich and her maid Gloria (both played by Skubik) in a co-dependent relationship during the star's last days in her Paris apartment. "Broken Nails. A Marlene Dietrich Dialogue" is part of "La MaMa Puppet Series IV --Built to Perform," a series of five adult puppet theater productions and a popular children's attraction, all of which explore the artistic and creative possibilities of puppetry in all its forms.

Church Girl - Beacon Theatre

This no-holds barred musical stage play, based on true stories, was written and produced by Angela Barrow-Dunlap and directed by Reuben Yabuku. The play runs November 16 - 21 (8 performances) at the Beacon Theatre. Church Girl tells the story of Emily Franklin, the seemingly wholesome daughter of a prominent pastor, who is seduced by the charms of a worldly life. Emily is hiding a very shocking secret and like all things evil, it is festering. Emily has been working diligently to cover up the dark choices she has made, but when her secret is exposed, events take a dramatic turn and skeletons coming crashing out of her closet. Everyone wants to know what could push a quintessential church girl to turn her back on everything she has been taught. This uplifting new musical drama features soul-stirring gospel music, while it bravely peeks into a part of the entertainment world that has been, until now, considered taboo. Church Girl infuses the magic of phenomenal music, a cast of colorful characters, and amazing dance performances to take audiences on an unforgettable ride through the pains and pleasures of tasting the "forbidden fruit" to the ultimate height of redemption.

Betsy is Bored, Bored, Bored, Bored, BORED! - Looking Glass Theatre
Through November 21, 2010 -

The New York Times calls this comedy for children "a briskly paced romp through daydreams." AND... "With a mummy shuffling down the aisle, a news conference unfolding in the midst of the audience and a talking cat jumping off the stage, the new production at Looking Glass Theater shouldn’t leave children bored, bored, bored, bored, bored. Or even just bored." - The New York Times Looking Glass Theatre, celebrating almost 20 years of productions strengthening the voice of women in theater and the arts, proudly presents Betsy is Bored, Bored, Bored, Bored, BORED!, a new play for children which explores the power of imagination written by Judy Sheehan, one of the original cast members of the long-running Off-Broadway show Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding. Looking Glass resident director Amanda Thompson directs the production, which opens Saturday, October 16 and runs through Sunday, November 21 with performances Saturdays at 12pm and 2pm, Sundays at 2pm and 4pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for children 12 and under. TDF vouchers are accepted. Running time is approximately 50 minutes without intermission; show is appropriate for ages 3-10. As the play begins, audiences of all ages meet poor Betsy, who is stuck at home on a rainy Saturday, when her parents say the single most annoying thing any parent can say: use your imagination. Hah! Betsy imagines herself as a star balloon baseball player, a famous Egyptologist, and a scientist/inventor with a talking cat for a best friend. It’s all fun and games until her imagination comes to life and moves in with the family. Imagination is way more powerful than Betsy ever suspected. Parents: be warned. After seeing this show, your kids might unleash the power of imagination. Yikes! Playwright Judy Sheehan, a New York City parent and the tenth of 12 children, has written many works, including two plays for kids: I Hate Spinach and Betsy Blue or I Was A 9-Year Old Blues Diva, both produced at Looking Glass Theatre. She’s written numerous other plays, including Alice In Ireland and What To Do About Nothing. Sheehan is also the author of two novels: ...And Baby Makes Two and Women In Hats, both published by Ballantine. LOOKING GLASS THEATRE - Looking Glass Theatre’s mission is to theatrically and truthfully reflect a female vision on the stage while creating a community of artistic freedom. We fulfill this by presenting female directors' visions of original works or the classics and by staging new plays either written or directed by women. This includes children’s shows and educational programming as well as our semi-annual festival of new works, featuring emerging women playwrights and directors, each season. In 2009 nytheatre.com said, “Looking Glass Theatre deserves kudos for consistently programming affordable shows for families that really are produced and staged with the youngest theater-goers in mind.” In 2008, The New York Times called Looking Glass Theatre’s Adventures of the Puppet Princess “charming” and “especially amusing to children under 10...a substantial introduction to the culture of Bali.”

Fall Foliage Tours Hudson Valley - OnBoard Tours
Through November 22, 2010 -

Fall foliage in the Hudson Valley is one of nature's treasures. Head over the majestic George Washington Bridge, dubbed "the most beautiful bridge in the world" by the architect Le Corbusier. Our journey begins in earnest on the Palisades Parkway, skirting the 550-foot-high Palisades along the Hudson River. Travel through luxuriant foliage suddenly awash in yellows, oranges, and reds. Take a break at the Lookout Inn, the highest point along the Palisades. Since 1937, this refreshment stand has greeted visitors with spectacular views across Westchester County to Long Island Sound. Our trek continues past Bear Mountain, once site of the premier ski jump in the U.S. Then, we skirt past the Bear Mountain Bridge, the first bridge across the Hudson between New York and Albany. Just past the site of the Revolutionary War Battle of Fort Montgomery, we head into West Point. America's oldest military academy was the training ground for Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E.

In Retrospect - La Mama E.T.C. (First Floor Theatre)
Through November 28, 2010 -

With its newest production, "In Retrospect," LOCO7 Dance Puppet Theatre Company investigates how we each construct our personal memory box: how we keep our memories fresh and preserve the things that made us who we are. These include our mothers' embraces, lost loves, childhood dreams, ideals of youth and struggles of age, loss and birth. The production features giant puppets, marionette scenery, masks, choreography, acrobatics, live original music and video. A large marionette tree dangles fruits high above our reach which, when dropped, grow into our memories. Some of them summon feelings of being loved and secure, others evoke the opposite. For example, one scene depicts a huge Mother marionette and her little children, revealing the pleasure of hiding within the safety of her giant legs. Another scene has a puppet telephone and a character waiting for a call with a mixture of dread and excitement. We are reminded of our emotional dependence on the appliance as a "life line" which can be either a comfort or a monster. "In Retrospect" is part of "La MaMa Puppet Series IV --Built to Perform," a series of five adult puppet theater productions and a popular children's attraction, all of which explore the artistic and creative possibilities of puppetry in all its forms. The series will run from October 14 to November 28, 2010.

Transitions: Artists of UrbanGlass Group Exhibition - UrbanGlass
Through December 22, 2010 -

Transitions: Artists of UrbanGlass highlights the broad range of work made in the studios of UrbanGlass and will be the final show held in Robert Lehman Gallery at UrbanGlass until after UrbanGlass’ renovation and expansion project is complete in 2012. This group exhibition is representative of a pivotal moment in UrbanGlass’ institutional history and highlights experimental, innovative works in glass. The exhibition was juried by Jennifer Scanlan, assistant curator, Museum of Arts & Design; Courtney J. Wendroff, visual arts director, Brooklyn Arts Council; Dave Altman, co-chair, Urbanites; and Alan Iwamura, visual artist. The thirteen artists that were selected have integrated various styles and media into their art works. Transitions explores several of the many different artistic approaches that are being used in contemporary glass, including conceptual, mixed-media, installation, photography, drawing and recycled materials. The work that was chosen is conceptual, thought provoking and challenges the medium and the traditional boundaries of glass. Some artists use recycled materials such as apparel with glass stitched into it by Solange Ledwith while Pamela Sabroso uses cut glass wine bottles to create an intricate window screen. Yuka Otani uses cast sugar, corn syrup, and food coloring to create an installation of traditional goblet shapes that will disintegrate and change over time, depending on the temperature and humidity. Kelsey Harrington’s glass spheres with colored water create beautifully compelling patterns through the reflections. Joseph Cavalieri’s taxidermy two-headed birds in glass globes compliment the bizarre and intriguing silver cast foot and glass desert installation by Victoria Calabro. Many traditional glass working techniques are also represented with an intricate metamorphosis captured in flameworking by Eunsuh Choi, to the graphic blown glass of Adam Holtzinger, and halo-inspired installation by Hiromi Takizawa. Jane Bruce’s kilnformed glass series plays with traditional form and concept while Michael Janis’ kilncast pieces use layering of imagery and glass to create narrative space. Kanik Chung’s series of drawn presidential portraits on sheet glass is displayed to reveal the sum of all past presidents, the cumulative president. Miguel Unson presents a contemporary look at glass art through the lens of a camera, showing photos of intricate details of his own work. For more information, please visit our website at www.urbanglass.org. UrbanGlass: New York Contemporary Glass Center is a not-for-profit international art center located at 647 Fulton Street, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY. The mission of UrbanGlass is to be a leading resource for both aspiring and established artists wishing to create in glass. We foster innovative art and advance the use and appreciation of glass as a creative medium.
