Barrow Street Theatre : 7:30 p.m. daily until August 30

Annie Baker's Pulitzer Prize winner, The Flick, is the best kind of wall-breaking meta-drama: the kind with heart. On its set are rows of foldout seats, an onstage theater facing out to mirror the room's own. But the show makes you feel something for its trio of downtrodden characters —... More >>

World Science Festival

Brooklyn Bridge Park : 12:00 p.m. daily until May 31

Long gone are the days when science festivals were considered nerdy. With technology so entwined in our lives, we have a duty to be interested in how it all affects us — and, perhaps more pressingly, in what effects we are having on the world. Oh, and space; it's always cool to learn... More >>

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until September 6

The final season of Mad Men debuted on April 5, and we’ll have to say goodbye, after eight years, to all the smoking, drinking, striving, cheating, casual sexism, and slick mid-century style of Don Draper and his pals. But now the Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a tribute to the... More >>

Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. May 29

For those who aren’t aware, folk metal is a thing. And while that may seem like a pairing of opposites — the simple quietude of folk music and the brash blitzkrieg of metal — they work quite well together. That is, if you don’t take it too seriously. Finnish band... More >>

In 1955, the MoMA exhibited a ten-year survey called "Latin American Architecture Since 1945." You can imagine how much building in Latin America has expanded, parsed down, twisted, and gone beyond the imaginations of anybody who saw that original exhibit 60 years ago. Latin America in... More >>
