This "musicians' favorite" begged for a follow up recording, but this time Babko wanted to try something different. The relocation of Steely Dan drummer Keith Carlock to Nashville, Coffin's hometown, triggered the idea of doing a project there. However, this time Babko wanted to expand the band "to take the edge of my left hand bass duties", he says. Inspired by reading guitarist Pat Martino's biography, Babko looked back to Martino's 1976 Starbright album for inspiration. That record's bassist, Will Lee (Late Show w/ David Letterman, The Fab Faux, Brecker Brothers) seemed like a perfect fit for this new unexplored project. With the inspiration of Martino as a backdrop, Babko thought it now was important to bring in a guitarist. The remarkable Nir Felder, which NPR called "the next big jazz guitarist"... (read more)

Apocalyptica - New York City Theatre
September 11, 2017 - New York

It's been 20 years since Apocalyptica first put forth their unholy alliance of metal and classical music in the form of debut album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. The Finnish cello metal band formed with the intention of playing Metallica and other heavy metal band covers, but each subsequent release featured more and more original music until fourth album Reflections announced their fully-fledged status as original artists. While it may seem that these two genres make strange bedfellows, Apocalyptica more than makes it work. Known for their unique and thrilling live shows, in which they headbang while playing the cello no less, the band pulls no punches and brings as much energy to the stage as any metal band in its prime. This, coupled with a heightened sense of musicianship, makes for an experience you won't want to miss.

Through September 13, 2017 - New York

As a child Aldana studied with her renowned saxophonist father Marcos Aldana. In 2007 she moved to Boston to enroll at Berklee, coming under the mentorship of George Garzone.

Serge has every right to be upbeat. Kasabian's sixth album is genuinely the best selection of tunes they've put out since they first erupted into the public conscious back in 2004. A straight flush of knock out tune after knock out tune, it could almost be a greatest hits. In fact, when the day comes to pick an all-time Kasabian starting line-up, every one of these songs is going to be jossling Club Foot, elbowing Fire out the way and tugging on Empire's shirt for a deserved place in the team. Its all-killer make up was no accident either. "I decided to give myself six weeks to write an album like they used to do back in the day and that became really inspiring" Serge recalls. "I was like 'Right, I'm ready to go into the studio and make a guitar album with loads of really good songs on it.' Which sounds so basic, but literally that was it. I ma... (read more)

All In Good Time - United Solo
September 14, 2017 - New York

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. 1976. Written and directed by John Cassavetes - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
September 14, 2017 - New York

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. 1976. USA. Written and directed by John Cassavetes. With Ben Gazzara, Timothy Carey, Seymour Cassel Cosmo Vitelli, proprietor of a cheesy strip club called the Crazy Horse West, isn't a bad guy, but he drinks too much and gambles with abandon. Now Cosmo owes the mob more than $20,000 and the only repayment they want is the murder one of their enemies. The film plays with the idea of false identities, from the mob wrongly describing Cosmo's target as a Chinese bookie to Cosmo himself—a self-styled suave, cool character who's actually quie rough around the edges.

Wendy and Lucy. 2008. Directed by Kelly Reichardt - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
September 14, 2017 - New York

Wendy and Lucy. 2008. USA. Directed by Kelly Reichardt. Screenplay by Reichardt, Jonathan Raymond. With Michelle Williams, Will Oldham Film critic Roger Ebert's 2009 review of Wendy and Lucy begins with a prescient comment: "I know so much about Wendy, although this movie tells me so little." Perhaps Wendy's story is all too familiar? She's out of work, has a cool relationship with her family, thinks moving to Alaska will be a panacea, and loves no one but her dog Lucy. Wendy keeps every disappointment, slight, and anxieties bottled up inside, only reacting when Lucy goes missing. Michelle Williams was nominated for several industry awards for her role as Wendy, winning the Toronto Film Critics Association prize.

Barry Manilow - New York City Theatre
September 14, 2017 - New York

In terms of record sales and career longevity, Barry Manilow is one of the most successful adult contemporary singers ever. That success hasn't necessarily garnered universal respect (or even "ironic hipster" appreciation) in most quarters, but the facts speak for themselves; 65 million albums, 3,000 concerts and 28 platinum records. As well as producing and arranging albums for his fellow artists such as Bette Midler and Dionne Warwick, Manilow has also written songs for films, commercials, and musicals, including his soon-to-be-revived production, Harmony. Don't miss the king of the "Copacabana" himself, as Barry Manilow continues to tour across the USA and the rest of the world, despite being almost 70 years old! He'll be playing a selection of his hits from his vast catalogue and cuts from, Dream Duets, which saw the singer team up with some of the finest performers in the business (both alive and dead) including Andy Williams, Marilyn Monroe and John Denver.

The Baroness - Isak Dinesens Final Affair - New York City Theatre
September 14, 2017 - Montclair

There are writers in literary history who not only leave their mark through their extraordinary story-telling but also through their extraordinary lives. Karen Blixen was one such figure. Writing under the pen name Isak Dinesen, the Danish author wrote Out Of Africa, an account of her spiritual journey in Kenya, as well as Babbette's Feast, both of which have been adapted into Academy Award-winning feature films. For the first time in the US, Blixen's life story will captivate audiences anew in The Baroness - Isak Dinesen's Final Affair, a play by renowned Danish playwright Thor Bjorn Krebs brought to the stage by the Scandinavian American Theater Company. At a time when different people are increasingly considered outcasts, Blixen is the perfect embodiment of the company's credo, to present thought-provoking and unusual plays that bridge the gap between cultures.

Born as a vampire without memories or hope for the future, the languishing immortal pulls out her fangs and heads from Transylvania to New York to find love and herself. But following closely behind is her twin sister/clone Georgia, determined to bring her beloved sister back to the darkness...

Opening Night. 1977. Written and directed by John Cassavetes - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
September 15, 2017 - New York

Opening Night. 1977. USA. Written and directed by John Cassavetes. With Gena Rowlands, Ben Gazzara, Joan Blondell Myrtle Gordon, an aging actress who drinks too much, is starring in a new drama about an aging actress—and the out-of-town rehearsals aren't going so well. The booze helps Myrtle cope with the wrinkles she sees in the mirror every morning, as well as the possibility that a fan may have been killed by her limo. On opening night, Myrtle is so drunk that she has to be dressed, made up, and pushed onto the stage. Perhaps her life is so dramatic that the margins between reality and theater are longer apparent.

As three families head west on the Oregon Trail in 1845, it soon becomes apparent that their guide, Stephen Meek, is lost and their lives are in danger from possible attack, exposure, and lack of water and food. This is an uncommon Western tale, focusing on the women who, for lack of a permanent home, fuss over and adjust the meager belongings stored inside their wagons. As the journey becomes more arduous, they must shed tangible links to their past, such as heirloom furniture that weighs down the unwieldy wagons. Alone on the vast plains, the tormented travelers have few options for survival.

Night Moves. 2013. USA. Directed by Kelly Reichardt. Screenplay by Jonathan Raymond, Reichardt. With Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard. DCP. 112 min. The environmental thriller Night Moves, about a trio of eco-terrorists deep into a plot to blow up an Oregon hydroelectric dam, represents a monumental shift in Kelly Reichardt's filmography. Each protagonist has a private backstory—dropout, trust-fund baby, ex-military—that tumbles out in the quiet moments of the film. As in many of Reichardt's films, the primordial, verdant Oregon landscape often acts as a hushed character in the narrative.

Originally opening Off-Broadway in 1999, Naked Boys has now been housed at four different New York venues over the years, and is now firmly established as a true Off-Broadway fixture.

Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Composer and pianist Fred Hersch has been described by the New York Times as "a master who plays it his way." Over the course of Hersch's long and inspiring career, Leaves of Grass stands out as one of his most ambitious and deeply personal projects. Originally premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2005, Leaves of Grass celebrates the life and poetry of the American bard Walt Whitman, whose work redefined American poetry and had a significant, life-affirming impact on Hersch. In this Appel Room performance, vocalists Kurt Elling and Kate McGarry will reprise their acclaimed roles from the original project, presenting Whitman's words with grace, emotion, and a lyrical sweetness that would have made Whitman proud. An eight-piece ensemble will assist them in evoking the sweeping melodicism for which Hersch is renowned. It's been over 160 years since Whitman wrote his epic masterwork, "Song of Myself," which forms the centerpiece of Hersch's Leaves of Grass, and its messages seemed almost alien in our society at the time. Now, its promotion of unapologetic love for one's true self, appreciation of the present, wonder at the miracle of nature, and the openhearted love of all beings is especiall... (read more)

Arturo O'Farrill - Birdland
Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Grammy Award winning pianist and composer Arturo O'Farrill -- leader of the "first family of Afro-Cuban Jazz" (NY Times) -- is the son of the late, great composer Chico O'Farrill. Arturo played in Carla Bley's Big Band from 1979-83 and earned a reputation as a soloist in groups led by Dizzy Gillespie, Steve Turre, Freddy Cole, Lester Bowie, Wynton Marsalis and Harry Belafonte. After leading his late father's orchestra for years, Arturo formed his own band, The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and other groups in order to explore his and other compositions in the panoply of Afro-Latin music. The Boss Level Sextet comes from video-game slang for overcoming obstacles. "It's like a metaphor for life," O'Farrill says. "To reach the next level, sometimes you have to battle the boss." The group's adventurous repertoire includes "They Came" — a reggaetón-inspired piece by Jason Lindner, celebrating mestizo cultures of the New World.

Suddenly George Lucas was the name on everyone's lips, and movies would never be the same again!

Certain Women. 2016. Written and directed by Kelly Reichardt - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
September 17, 2017 - New York

Certain Women. 2016. USA. Written and directed by Kelly Reichardt. With Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Lily Gladstone. DCP. 107 min. The lives of four very different women intersect in a small Montana town—but none of them pause to realize how they intersect with one another. If they did, they would resolve some personal issues and maybe bring some consolation into their lives. A frazzled attorney carries on a passionless affair; a married couple decides to build a weekend cabin but realize their marriage is crumbling; and Beth, a young lawyer, drives four hours in each direction to teach an adult-ed class about some mundane aspect of the law. Actress Lily Gladstone, as the lonely rancher who becomes enamored of Beth, is the true standout in this film. Her face, with its benevolent smile, is as open as the Montana landscape. When her heart breaks, so will yours.

Text and Image in the 1950s: Do Artists Practice What They Preach? - The Museum of Modern Art
Through September 25, 2017 - Manhattan

Can artists be taken at their word? Join us as we attempt to answer this question by exploring the work of three modern masters: Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns.

Through close looking and reading, we'll evaluate the extent to which the words match up with the work. This session is led by Lauren Kaplan. Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

A Bronx Tale - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Directors Robert De Niro and Jerry Zaks bring their triumphant New York musical to Broadway, following an acclaimed run in Millburn. Mirroring the gritty setting and finger-clicking music of fellow Big Apple musical Jersey Boys, A Bronx Tale takes place in the early 1960s, and follows the fortunes of a local Bronx kid who is drawn into the world of organized crime, much to the horror of his bus driver father. The story is based on actor Chazz Palminteri's one man show, which De Niro previously adapted for the big screen in 1993. WHAT IS A BRONX TALE ABOUT? Growing up in the Bronx, Calogero knows that there's one man who rules over the bustling Italian-American neighbourhood - mob boss Sonny. Their two paths meet unexpectedly one day, when Calogero witnesses Sonny carrying out a hit. Italian loyalty and a sense of self-preservation mean Calogero refuses to name names to the cops, and Sonny, impressed with the young kid's spirit, takes him under his wing. As Calogero grows older, and heads ever deeper into Sonny's undeworld, his father must try and wrestle him away from a life of crime.

Anastasia - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

A starry creative team bring the magical story of Anastasia to Broadway for the first time. Inspired by the 20th Century Fox animation from 1997, this show imagines the life of Grand Duchess Anastasia if she escaped the execution of the rest of her family in 1918, and follows her journey of self-discovery and tentative romance with charming con man Dimitri. It's a blockbuster adventure bursting with heart, set against the historical backdrop of the Russian Revolution. Coming to The Great White Way following a Hartford tryout, this enchanting new show features a mix of songs from the movie, including the Oscar-nominated 'Journey to the Past', as well as original compositions. In the director's chair is Darko Tresnjack, who won a Tony for his work on the smash hit A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, while the cast includes Ramin Karimloo (Les Mis). Anastasia also reunites the team behind the four time Tony winning musical Ragtime, with Terrence McNally providing the book and Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens scoring.

Curvy Widow - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

The modern dating scene with all its painful and hilarious foibles comes to brilliant life in this Off-Broadway comedy musical, transferring from the George Street Playhouse down the street. Slated for an open run, the show welcomes back the Tony-nomated Nancy Opel in the lead role! Recently seen in the hilariously dark musical The Toxic Avenger, Opel once again calls on her considerable comedy skills to play the role of a vivacious 50-something widow, who is thrown into the heady world of social media, sex and swiping right. Keen to explore new concepts of love and sex, Curvy throws herself into the modern dating scene with gusto; from considering internet personals, surviving disastrous first dates and even weighing up the risks and benefits of dating both married and single men! What follows is a rip-roaring romp that tests even Curvy's patience and good humor, but discovering new truths about herself along the way!

Through September 30, 2017 - New York

In partnership with Advertising Week, Times Square Arts presents artist Benjamin Lebovitz’s Borders on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in September. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. Earlier this year, Times Square Arts and Advertising Week put out an open call for Midnight Moment proposals from artists working in the advertising industry. The winning submission was Borders, created by art director Benjamin Lebovitz. Using Google Earth satellite technology — a familiar medium after Lebovitz’s work on projects for the company — Lebovitz depicts the world from above, displaying the international borders between countries like Nepal and China, the US and Mexico, Syria and Turkey, Israel and Jordan, and Kuwait and Iraq, along with the remains of the Berlin Wall and landscapes of Glacier National Park.

Kinky Boots - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Boasting an irresistible score from pop icon Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots is a joyful gem of a show, wrapping all its glitz and glamour around a true emotional core. Based on the 2005 British movie starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, it's the story of an unlikely friendship between fledgling business man Charlie Price and sassy drag queen Lola, and how the two of them fight to save Charlie's shoe factory by producing a very different line of footwear.

School of Rock - the Musical - Winter Garden Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

A double jolt of adrenaline and sugar to inspire the most helicoptered of tots to play hooky and go shred an ax. For those about to love School of Rock: We salute you." Hoping to educate us once again, Andrew Lloyd-Webber returns to Broadway with a brand-new show! Adapted from the 2003 Jack Black movie of the same name, School of Rock features bumbling lead character Dewey Finn, played by Eric Petersen (Shrek The Musical), the hilarious slacker with rock stardom on his mind. Not since 1971 has Andrew Lloyd-Webber launched a show on Broadway before London's West End! This new production, which mixes songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, is a rockin' spectacular! Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a "relatively unknown" TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we've never heard of it either....

Phantom of the Opera - Majestic Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York,

With the distance of more than a decade - and a couple hundred new musicals - since my last visit, I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show's gothic theatricality. Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera is the stuff of Broadway legend. The Great White Way's longest-running show of all time, this Gothic epic has been enchanting New York audiences for over a quarter a century with its irresistible mix of romance and horror, backed by its iconic rock music score. Undoubtedly one of theatre's greatest spectacles, Phantom boasts exquisite costumes and set design, and of course, the magnificent chandelier that crashes onto the stage to close out the first Act. Originally opening on Broadway in 1988, the show won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has over the years starred some of musical theatres greatest names, such as Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman and Sierra Boggess. Among the many famous numbers in its score is the title track, 'All I Ask of You' and 'The Music of the Night'. For a night out at the theatre, you can't do better than the Phantom."

Cats - Neil Simon Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

It has been some four days since I saw the revival of Mr. Lloyd Webber's nigh-legendary musical "Cats," which opened on Sunday at the Neil Simon Theater. And it's been four days of persistent earworms." One of Broadway's previously longest running and most popular musicals makes a special return to New York at the Neil Simon Theatre. Ideal for the whole family, Cats is based on poet TS Eliot's 1939 book for older children, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. With spectacular costumes, dazzling dance moves, and some of the most memorable show tunes in musical theatre ('Memory', 'MaCavity', 'The Song of the Jellicles', just to name a few!), Cats will leave you in awe. And possibly suspicious of any cats you may pass on the way home after... With direction from Trevor Nunn, choreography from Andy Blankenbuehler after Gillian Lynne and sets and costumes from the iconic John Napier, this Andrew Lloyd Webber-scored show won seven Tony Awards on its first 18-year outing on the Great White Way. Since it closed in 2000, audiences have been wishing for a revival, and now its finally here!

Miss Saigon - Broadway Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Miss Saigon was, and is, a phenomenon, and this production, directed by Laurence Connor, is sensational in every way. It's been a long time coming, but the hit London-born musical Miss Saigon lights up Broadway once again, following a phenomenal run in the West End. Starring the new revival production are leads Alistair Brammer as Chris and North Carolina-born Eva Noblezada as Kim, who experience the heady love story amidst the last days of Saigon, complete with a revamped helicopter scene to take your breath away. Nominated for two 2017 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical!

Avenue Q - Stage 3 New World Stages
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

A thoroughly infectious musical that qualifies as a serious blessing. They never taught you this on Sesame Street... Brash, provocative and dangerously funny, the puppet-populated Avenue Q is the one coming of age story that pulls back the curtain and finally gives us the cold hard truth - we are not, despite what our parents and Saturday morning cartoons might have told us, special snowflakes who can achieve whatever we want. So get used to it! Written by Jeff Whitty, Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, Avenue Q's mix of expletive spouting puppets and gloriously witty songs ('The Internet is Good for Porn', 'I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today', 'It Sucks to be Me') has garnered the show huge acclaim the world over and three Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Running Off-Broadway since 2009, it's a true New York institution, and will ensure you never look at Elmo quite the same way ever again.

Perfect Crime - Anne L. Bernstein Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

In London, it's The Mousetrap; in New York, it's Perfect Crime... NYC's little mystery thriller that could A staple of New York theatre, much like The Mousetrap across the pond in London, this show goes far and beyond the traditional mystery play. It is a sexy, compelling comedy-thriller, with well-timed surprises and laughs that relieve a growing dramatic tension. The main character is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist accused of bumping off her wealthy, foppish British husband.

Hamilton - Richard Rodgers Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals Where do you start with Hamilton? The hit hip-hop infused musical drama about the 10 Dollar Founding Father Without A Father from Lin-Manuel Miranda has all but taken over the world since its first sold-out run the at Off-Broadway Public Theatre in 2015. Now housed at the Richard Rodgers Theatre for the foreseeable future, the rollicking historical epic is a true arbiter of our times, with its message of inclusivity, passion, diversity and resistance from oppression as relevant now as it ever was. Tracing the life of Alexander Hamilton, a figure largely overlooked by history (except for his very dramatic death at the hands of Aaron Burr) Lin-Manuel's opus first came to him whilst on vacation when he happened to pick up Ron Chernow's lauded biography. Taken by the largely unknown story of America's first United States Secretary of The Treasury, he immediately began to sketch the outline of the musical. Citing Alexander's non-stop attitude to his life and work, Miranda felt that the scor... (read more)

Hello, Dolly - Shubert Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

"Bright, brassy and all Bette! Ms. Midler works hard for her ovations, while making you feel that the pleasure is all hers. Emmy, Tony, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Bette Midler (Fiddler on the Roof, The First Wives Club) returns to the Broadway stage in one of the greatest musicals of all time - Hello, Dolly! Starring alongside David Hyde Pierce, Ms Midler leads the revival of Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart's glorious comedy as the redoubtable matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, in a Tony-winning performance.

Through September 30, 2017 - New York

1984 - Hudson Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Even for audiences inclined to feel jaded about revisiting a story from a long-ago school reading list, this '1984' manages to pump new, discomforting life into the mother of all dystopias." George Orwell's scarily prescient masterpiece comes to Broadway, in a new stage adaptation by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. Creating a nightmarish vision of suppression, surveillance and the all-powerful 'Big Brother', 1984 is one of the landmark texts of the 20th Century. Its story centers on civil servant Winston Smith, who decides to fight back against a totalitarian government which seeks to strip away every one of his liberties. Tony nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphan) stars as Winston, and the cast also includes Tony winner Reed Birney (The Humans) and Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde, who is making her Broadway debut. Transferring from the UK, where it has had four acclaimed runs, this new 1984 is a startlingly staged production, employing projections of live video feeds from cameras on stage and a set that is wholly transformed over the run time. It also incorporates the book's appendix into the show, meaning the action is framed by a book club in 2050, who are discussing the veracit... (read more)

Come from Away - Gerald Schoenfeld Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Come From Away is an uplifting new musical that celebrates human compassion in the face of terrible circumstances. Penned by Canadian husband and wife team Irene Snakoff and David Hein, Come From Away is set in the remote town of Gander in Newfoundland, which found itself playing host to the passengers of 38 planes that were forced to land on 9/11. Thoroughly researched and based on interviews with residents and passengers, the show explores how this tiny community opened its hearts and homes to their unexpected guests. Come From Away debuted at San Diego's La Jolla Playhouse in 2015, before moving onto Seattle's Rep Theatre, where it broke box office records and was extended due to popular demand. This Broadway production is up for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical.

The Terms of My Surrender - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

The left-wing polemicist, film maker, writer and agent provocateur is headed to Broadway for his first-ever stage show that he has written and will be starring in. It will be helmed by Spring Awakening's Tony-winning director Michael Mayer. Billed as "taking aim at Trump" by the New York Times, the show will be part stand-up, part play, part angry rant, and is set to raise the hackles of plenty a No. 45 supporter. A limited engagement of just 12 weeks starting in July, Moore will perform his one-man show eight times a week, in what will be a headline-stealing engagement, and one that is guaranteed to spark more than a few angry early morning Tweets from the White House...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - New York City Theatre

Follow young Charlie Bucket inside Willy Wonka's world famous Chocolate Factory, and discover that its wonders go far beyond your wildest dreams!

Chicago - the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

An intoxicating mix of murder, sex and razzle dazzle, Chicago is Broadway at its most iconic. A winking satire of celebrity culture, it's the tale of two beautiful criminals in the Roaring Twenties who plan to get away with murder by putting on one hell of a show. Known for its slinky Bob Fosse choreography, lacey costumes and finger-clicking score, Chicago will show you a good time. Debuting on Broadway in 1975, Chicago was initially overshadowed by the year's other big musical, A Chorus Line, but is now firmly established as one of the Great White Way's most instantly recognisable shows. It's Broadway's longest-running ever American musical, and was turned into an Oscar winning movie in 2002, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere.

The Suitcase Under the Bed - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Teresa Deevy is a name that should be synonymous with the great Irish literary tradition. After she lost her hearing as a young woman, the dramatist turned to the pen, producing plays that were quietly revolutionary in their forward thinking approach to feminism and women's roles in her restrictive Catholic society. Yet after her initial success in the 30s, her plays were inexplicably dropped by her patron theater, and so her rightful legacy faded over the years. Labelled by NY Times theater critic Brent Brantley as a resurrectionist extraordinaire of forgotten plays", the Mint Theater, together with artistic director and driving force Jonathan Bank, is resurrecting Deevy's lost voice in an evening of four of her short plays this Summer.

A Clockwork Orange - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Jonno Davies (Shakespeare in Love) makes his New York stage debut in the lead role of Alex DeLarge, reprising his performances from the London run.

Newsical the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Through October 02, 2017 - New York

On October 16, 2015, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will unveil On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War, a major exhibition exploring the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid's history. The exhibition, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, will offer a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history.The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the exhibition will focus on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew "on the line"—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam. This localized history will serve as the starting point for understanding the larger historical landscape, including the Cold War, Operation Rolling Thunder and protests at home.

John Minihan: Beckett and His World - Irish Arts Center
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organizations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. This year we join by opening our gallery doors for a daytime opportunity to view Beckett and His World.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
Through December 25, 2017 - New York

nspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!
