Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island–bred performer, who... More >>

Kehinde Wiley

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until May 24

Kehinde Wiley, only 38 years old but with a career spanning 14 years, already has his own retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, and rightly so.

Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until August 23

Jean-Michel Basquiat accomplished much in his brief life. He began by leaving a mark on Lower Manhattan — literally — with his graffiti, before eventually staging exhibits in prestigious galleries throughout the world and befriending the likes of Andy Warhol. Throughout the... More >>

Bruce LaBruce

MOMA, Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters : 7:00 p.m. daily until May 2

It takes only a passing glance at the premise of a few Bruce LaBruce films to understand why his work is met with controversy all over the world. L.A. Zombie (2010) follows an alien, possibly schizophrenic zombie who brings people back to life through intercourse, while Skin Flick (1999)... More >>

Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until July 19

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 >>

This Tony­-winning spoof of Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 classic has played in New York numerous times before — prior venues include the American Airlines Theatre, the Cort Theatre, and the Helen Hayes — and was such a rousing success that a return run ought to be embraced with open... More >>

Union Square Theater


Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. May 5

A marvelous mashup that consistently transcends its source material, guitarist Jon Madof's 2013 Tzadik Records debut combined Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's ecstatic Jewish music with Fela Kuti's swaggering Afrobeat sound. He followed it up last year with Adramelech: Book of Angels 22, which applies... More >>

Sultans of Deccan India: 1500-1700

The Metropolitan Museum of Art : 10:00 a.m. daily until July 26

The Deccan Plateau, a region of southern India through which people of countless cultures passed during the sixteenth century, gave birth to a number of distinctive works of art. Thanks to a series of sultans who patronized the efforts of artists, poets, and musicians, Deccan India made... More >>

The Vertigo Effect

BAM Rose Cinemas : 7:00 p.m. daily until April 30

In collaboration with BAMcinématek, the programmer C. Mason Wells — currently the brain behind the IFC Center's 35mm-exclusive "Celluloid Dreams" series — has constructed "The Vertigo Effect," a two-week program of movies that wear the traces of Alfred Hitchcock's seminal... More >>

The Great American Pin-Up Returns: The AK Collection

Louis K. Meisel Gallery : 10:00 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 2

The pin-up girl originated in the 1930s, accompanied soldiers to war in the 1940s, mirrored the rampant consumerism of the 1950s, and was eventually reduced to a bit of kitschy fun in the 1960s. The pin-up straddles that line between commercial culture and softcore porn, but in The Great... More >>

Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Hancock's self-portrait — a demonic figure with giant tube-shaped breasts — is decidedly unflattering, but it captures the essence of an artist immersed in the perversely humorous world of underground comics. This extensive survey features his long-running mythological story about... More >>

Harlem Art - Museums


BAM Harvey Theater : 3:00 p.m. every Sun. until May 3; 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 3; 2:00 p.m. every Sat. until May 3

Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, much like the playwright's A Doll's House, was considered shocking, licentious, and inflammatory at the time of its premiere, and this award-winning production — arriving at BAM after praise-garnering runs at the Almeida Theatre and the West End — deftly... More >>

Fort Greene Theater

When the Curtain Never Comes Down

American Folk Art Museum : 12:00 p.m. daily until July 5

This fresh collection of outsider art explores ritual, self-promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self-taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller-skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash. Spiritually guided,... More >>

Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection

Japan Society : 9:30 a.m. daily until June 7

Depictions of felines, it seems, have been popular throughout the ages. Before there was “Best Cat Vines of 2014,” Japanese artists created woodblock prints of their furry friends. Starting today, the Japan Society Gallery features Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e... More >>

Slavic Soul Party!

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

Slavic Soul Party are Eastern Europe's answer to the funk (and "Grunt") of the J.B.'s or, more recently, the Budos Band. On their recordings, and every Tuesday at Barbès, the ten-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

How Shakespeare Works: A Free Night Course

Cooper Union, Great Hall : 6:00 p.m. every Mon. until May 11

Wherefore be a fool when it comes to Shakespeare? The Cooper Union is offering nine free courses on the Bard and his plays, from February to May. Pick and choose which sessions to attend based on your favorites, or go to all and treat it like a semester of college. Esteemed author, scholar, and... More >>

Whitney Museum Grand Opening

Whitney Museum of American Art : 10:30 a.m. May 1

In an attempt to make art more accessible, and the High Line even more crowded (if that's possible), the Whitney Museum of American Art has relocated. Or rather, has been relocating, as we've observed in the rise of the sleek, angular, space-age-y structure by Renzo Piano over the past year.... More >>

Benjamin Clementine

BRIC : 8:00 p.m. April 29

Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Clementine was discovered busking in the Paris métro. After two EPs and a new album, At Least for Now, Clementine is on track to become a major purveyor of the sort of proudly despairing poetics associated with Nina Simone and Édith Piaf, with a... More >>

The Driver's Seat

Nitehawk Cinema : 10:00 p.m. April 29

As part of his New York City rounds, the Canadian director Bruce LaBruce organizes a 35mm screening of a radical, overlooked Elizabeth Taylor vehicle. Based on a Muriel Spark novella, directed by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, shot by the great cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (Last Tango in Paris,... More >>

Walter Kerr Theatre : 7:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu.; 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Fri., Sat.; 3:00 p.m. every Sun.

Any chance to see Tony winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has... More >>

West 40s Theater, Broadway: Now Playing

Kool A.D.

Santos Party House : 7:00 p.m. April 30

Das Racist may have broken up in 2012, but rappers Himanshu Suri (Heems) and Victor Vazquez (Kool A.D.) are still putting out their signature brand of avant-garde hip-hop. Heems released his first solo record earlier this year — snagging a Village Voice cover story along the way —... More >>

Chinatown Music

Celeste Sloman and Vangeline Theater

Howl! Happening : 7:00 p.m. daily from April 29 until May 2

Butoh is a deceptively slow-moving dance. While its performers move gradually, it's with great intention. The audience never gets close enough to experience the trance-like state dancers evoke in order to alter reality and tell a story, until tonight. Très Mort–Tremor combines live... More >>

East Village Dance

It Shoulda Been You

Brooks Atkinson Theatre : 8:00 p.m. daily until September 13

David Hyde Pierce, who collected four Emmys as Dr. Niles Crane on Frasier, has been no less of a force on the stage, having recently won a Tony for his leading performance in the musical Curtains. This latest project is a don't-miss affair, as it constitutes Pierce's Broadway directing debut.... More >>

Reel Big Fish

Best Buy Theater : 7:30 p.m. June 16; 7:30 p.m. June 22

Last December was bittersweet for Reel Big Fish. The ska-punk band gave fans something to celebrate with the surprise Happy Skalidays EP, six tracks of Christmas covers and crudely named originals. On the other hand, the final month of 2014 brought about the departure of drummer Ryland... More >>

Beggars of Life

Film Forum : 7:50 p.m. May 4

In addition to an acting career that started with uncredited appearances in the mid-1940s and continued through the 2000s, William Wellman Jr. — son of the prodigious director William A. Wellman (Wings, The Public Enemy) — has accumulated a notable mass of authorial credits. In... More >>
