Ari Hoenig Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 11, 2019 - New York

As a drummer, Ari Hoenig's success has been unprecedented. Growing up in Philadelphia, his parent's influence exposed Ari to a variety of alternative musical experiences. His father is a conductor and classical singer, his mother a violinist and pianist. Accordingly, at six years of age, Ari began studying the violin and piano. He began playing drums at age twelve and by age fourteen, he was honing his skills with other young jazz musicians at Philly clubs such as Ortlieb's Jazz Haus. Ari attended the prestigious University of North Texas for three years, where he studied with Ed Soph while playing with the "One O'Clock" Lab Band. Wanting to be closer to New York City, in 1995 Ari transferred to William Patterson College in northern New Jersey.

Lords of Acid - Gramercy Theater
March 12, 2019 - Grammercy Park

From his first single, "I Sit On Acid", released in 1988, to the present, Belgium's Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release "Lust", to the electro-thrash of 2012's "Deep Chills" Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for nearly three decades! Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases. Praise The Lords, Misbehave!

Justin Robinson Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 12, 2019 - New York

Alto saxophonist Justin Robinson was born August 14, 1968, in Manhattan. He first picked up a horn at the age of 13, and honed his sound while attending the High School of Music and Arts (LaGuardia High School) in New York. Robinson developed a passion for the alto sax and, from the influences of Charlie Parker and Jackie McLean, crafted his own distinctive sound. Robinson has collaborated with eminent artists such as the Harper Brothers, Cecil Brooks III, Abbey Lincoln, Diana Ross, Little Jimmy Scott, and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, The Dizzy Gillespie All Star Band, and most recently, The Roy Hargrove Big Band in addition to the Roy Hargrove Quintet. Justin Robinson wields a hefty portfolio: joined Harper Brothers at 18, debuted on Verve at 22, a decade's-worth of star sideman gigs. All of that hang-time paid off with his 1998 recording The Challenge on Arabesque Records. Penning six of the compositions, selecting an inspired posse of young ringers (Ron Blake, tenor sax; Stephen Scott, piano; Dwayne Burno, bass; Dion Parsons, drums), Robinson also produced the whole shebang. Robinson also released as a solo artist Justin Time in 1991 with Verve Music Group label. It was produ... (read more)

Puzzling: The Puzzle Without An Answer - Anthology Film Archives
March 12, 2019 - New York

A puzzle is something puzzling– it expects deduction and solution, while at the same time describes a condition of open confusion. The six-part series "Puzzling" considers these concurrent modes to explore different registers of knowing, the generative possibilities of uncertainty, and the film form as a choreography of sense and stimuli. How can a puzzle, as a challenge and as a structure, destabilize or shape the world? How are the boundaries of sense and non-sense policed? Human and non-human test subjects, compromised figures of authority, and metaphysical detectives populate the series, alongside inquiries on communication, abstraction, and agency.

Speak Torah to Power - Symphony Space
March 13, 2019 - Manhattan

Speak Torah to Power: "Creating New Narratives of Empathy" with Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum: In this powerful, engaging talk, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum will tell the story of how it became an essential part of Muslim prayer in one community to be surrounded by the love of gay Jews, and how one straight Imam found himself as a featured speaker at New York's GLBT Pride parade. It's a story of being present and bearing deep witness, about knowing that we can't always change the world, about what it takes to look empathetically into the experience of another and to show up in acts of love and solidarity. It's about knowing that when we sit with each other in pain, we can strengthen and be strengthened, we can transform and be transformed–and we can learn how to live out our awareness that each person is created in God's image.

In 2014 they racked up more hits with "Get Out The Way", "Monkey Tree" and "Modern Love" from their much-lauded record Very Good Bad Thing.

Two for the Road - Dixon Place
March 14, 2019 - New York

n this monthly work-in-progress showing, renowned performance artist and activist Sanchez will develop his upcoming production, XIV, which premieres at Dixon Place in June 2019. The show melds autobiography and history to convey the injustices racialized communities face as they fight for 'equal protection of the laws'. Revolving around a 1946 class action lawsuit by 5 Mexican-American families to have their children enrolled in Orange County, CA public schools by applying the 14th Amendment, XIV serves as a creative counterpoint to the current events surrounding the realities of undocumented 'dreamers' and the vitriolic calls for building a Wall. This month's showing features a guest appearance by Jimmie Briggs.

A Discussion with Author Dr. Jane S. Gabin - Jewish Theological Seminary of America
March 14, 2019 - New York

Dr. Jane S. Gabin's historical novel looks at the complicated life and aftermath of the occupation of Paris during WWII and spotlights Jewish experiences during the Nazi occupation of the city. Her debut novel intertwines the two timelines of postwar Paris and the current day as a young woman seeks answers when she finds an old picture of her father, a U.S. Army private, with two women and a small boy in Paris after the war. Wishing to learn more about her father, she travels to Paris to try to find this young boy. Combining history, romance, and mystery, The Paris Photo reveals how wartime trauma can persist into the present. Admission to the book talk is free, but reservations are required. Please arrive early and have photo ID available. This event is sponsored by The JTS Library. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Dr. Jane S.

Revelry: Arun Ramamurthy Trio - Symphony Space
March 14, 2019 - Manhattan

Join us every Thursday evening for a festive night of live music, drink specials, and easy-going REVELRY. Arun Ramamurthy Trio(ART) brings a fresh approach to age-old South Indian classical repertoire. The trio's collaborative sound is driven by the propulsive rhythm section of drummer Sameer Gupta & and bassist Perry Wortman. The Carnatic canon is remixed in this seamless integration of styles as the group expands on the traditional compositions in explosive, improvisational flights of fancy. Arun's original work pays homage to Carnatic rhythmic structures and rich tonalities while expanding the music with a modern jazz backbeat by staying true to raga, the modes which form the melodic foundation for Indian classical composition, but finding the full sonic identity of a skilled ensemble, Ramamurthy's trio discovers new common ground and moments of organic conversation between two traditions, both based on a balance of rigor and freedom. Joined often by guest artists, ART's improvisational and fluid base takes new shape as an ensemble speaking varying dialects. Selected by NPR's New Sounds as a Top New Release and listed as a Best Release of 2014 by All About Jazz' Dan McClenegh... (read more)

The world's longest-running jazz festival comes to The Appel Room—a venue with state-of-the-art sound, an unbeatable view, and a capacity almost 100 times smaller than what the Monterey Jazz Festival draws in California.

Cécile McLorin Salvant is a genius vocalist who sells out every set she performs at Jazz at Lincoln Center (and be warned, these shows will be no different). Bria Skonberg is an irresistible entertainer who "plays trumpet like a red hot devil and sings like a dream." (The Wall Street Journal) Saxophonist Melissa Aldana is the first female instrumentalist ever to win the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition—the world's most prestigious jazz competition and number-one spotlight for rising talent—and she is now in top demand by multiple generations of musicians for her fierce melodicism.

Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York - Lincoln Center
Through March 16, 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.

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

Frog & Peach Theatre Company presents their streamlined take on Shakespeare’s celebrated comedy, TWELFTH NIGHT. Now in their 20th year, Frog & Peach creates fast-paced and entertaining productions of Shakespeare's plays that appeal to all audiences, with a special outreach to those who may feel shut out or priced out of the cultural conversation. Set in the seaside kingdom of Illyria, this startlingly modern romp is replete with fiendish pranks, public brawls, and an original rocking score by the band Honey West’s Ted Zurkowski. The production will play a limited engagement from Friday, February 22nd through Sunday, March 17th at The Sheen Center (18 Bleecker Street in NYC). TWELFTH NIGHT, centered on twins Viola and Sebastian separated by shipwreck, has easily maintained its relevance for over 400 years, with its commentary on gender identity and sexual ambiguity cleverly disguised as a case of mistaken identity. Frog & Peach apply their quick wit and swift cinematic pace to another hilarious evening with the Bard that’s accessible, entertaining, and over before you know it. Co-founder and Artistic Director Lynnea Benson directs. Tickets are $24.95-$29.95 and can be purchased... (read more)

ColorStruck - Theatre for the New City
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)

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)

Presented as part of the TILT Kids Festival, in partnership with Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) "Adaku’s Revolt," created and performed by Okwui Okpokwasili and designed and directed by Peter Born, is an interdisciplinary performance about one young black girl’s revolt against normative standards of beauty: a revolt against normalizing the pain that one must endure to achieve conventional standards of beauty, against enduring the physical scarring that is an inevitable result of using chemical straighteners or iron hot combs, against accepting that her natural hair should be a source of humiliation, and against the insidious self-loathing that might seed itself in the fertile ground of that humiliation.

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.

For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? - International Center of Photography (Museum)
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. Members of For Freedoms will be in residence at the ICP Museu... (read more)

The Theater at the 14th Street Y Announces the 2018-2019 Season LGBTQ+ Series NEW YORK - The Theater at the 14th Street Y continues to honor the edgy, diverse, and rich history of innovative culture making in the East Village for people of all ages with the 2018-2019 LGBTQ+ Series. 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 ...

TAMPONS, TEARS AND TRIUMPHS (TTT) - The PIT (Peoples Improv Theater)
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.

The series kicks-off on October 20, 2018 with The Not-So-Spooky Ghost and runs through May 2019. "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)

Frozen - Broadway Musical - St. James Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further. Delving deeper into Elsa and Anna’s past, the extra time given to the young sisters makes their love for each other clear from the start. Young Elsa, portrayed by Brooklyn Nelson and Ayla Schwartz, is the perfect tragic heroine. Her reaction to hurting her sister, and her fear of hurting anyone else, tugs at the heartstrings of every audience member. Both actors convey the role of big sister brilliantly, tapping into the respons... (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.

The heavy themes of mental illness, suicide, and struggling families are confronting, but as they become more prominent in real life, the need to portray these issue seriously in theatre is more crucial than ever. Dear Evan Hansen handles these themes with grace and honesty. It makes a point of giv... (read more)
