Puss N Boots - The Bowery Ballroom
February 15, 2020 - New York

Age Limit: 18 and OverIn 2008, Norah Jones, Sasha Dobson, and Catherine Popper formed Puss N Boots. Initially it was a vehicle for Jones and Dobson to play music together and try new things, with Popper joining on bass shortly after. The trio played various New York clubs, with a repertoire anchored in Americana, country, folk, pop and rock. The band became an outlet for Jones, Dobson and Popper to switch instruments, and allowed them to showcase a different side of themselves than in their various solo and side projects. In 2013, some five years after the group began playing, they signed with Blue Note Records and set out to assemble their debut record. Comprised of originals and covers, studio recordings and live performances, that debut was called No Fools, No Fun. Released in the summer of 2014, it was supported by a tour of the U.S. This year, the trio took the stage at the MusiCares charity event honoring Person of the Year Award recipient Dolly Parton, and performed Parton's "The Grass Is Blue". Jones, Dobson and Popper have also returned to the studio to work on new original music, as well as a few holiday-themed surprises. 2019 will be capped off with the band's annual "... (read more)

"The Pelican" and "Isle of the Dead" by August Strindberg - Theater for the New City
Through February 22, 2020 - NEW YORK

August Strindberg wrote "The Pelican" for his Intimate Theater in 1907 and penned "Isle of the Dead" immediately after as a prologue. The latter was unpublished until 1918 and rediscovered in the early 60s, when it was found and promptly dismissed as an incomplete fragment. The two plays were finally reunited by Ingmar Bergman as a radio play in 2003. It was his last dramatic production. Now, Theater for the New City presents August Strindberg Rep in the world premiere staging of the two plays together, as they were written and intended by their author. Translator and director is Robert Greer, Artistic Director of Strindberg Rep.In "Isle of the Dead," a teacher who has died in his sleep wakes up to meet an enlightened spirit, who instructs him to watch a play. It is "The Pelican.""The Pelican" is a dark morality play about cruelty and sacrifice. A vivacious young widow lusts for her newly-married son-in-law and the dishonor of her actions is driving her son to drink.

Animal Farm - The Seeing Place @ The Paradise Factory
Through February 23, 2020 - New York

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others"The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer's place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence. This dramatization remains faithful to the book's plot and intent and retains both its affection for the animals and the incisiveness of its message. This play is being performed by an ensemble of just four actors, which results in a fast-paced, tightly drawn interpretation of this timely story.Cast/Creative Team for ANIMAL FARM: Starring Laura Clare Browne, Erin Cronican, William Ketter, and Brandon Walker. Directed by Erin Cronican and Brandon Walker. Sound Design by Brandon Walker. Costume Design by Erin Cronican.

Taking Shape: Abstraction from the Arab World, 1950s1980s explores the development of abstraction in the Arab world via paintings, sculpture, and works on paper dating from the 1950s through the 1980s.
