This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:00 a.m. every 7 days until January 1

Geen Ween Does Billy Joel

Brooklyn Bowl : 9:00 p.m. May 28; 8:00 p.m. May 31

After quitting Ween in 2012, Gene Ween reassumed his given name, Aaron Freeman, for a brilliant Rod McKuen covers project and a pretty swell solo album. But he's Gene Ween again, at least for this evening-length tribute to the music of Billy Joel. Accompanied ably by Paul Green and the School... 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 >>

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 >>

The Flick

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 >>

West Village Theater

American Ballet Theatre

Celebrating 75 years as an ensemble of stellar dancers from the U.S. and abroad, the American Ballet Theatre launches its annual spring blowout, offering the local premiere of Alexei Ratmansky's lush new Sleeping Beauty (May 29–30 and June 8–13) and remounting productions of La... 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 >>

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 >>

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 bring 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 >>

Ideas City 2015

New Museum of Contemporary Art : 9:30 a.m. daily from May 28 until May 24

IDEAS CITY, a biennial festival, brought more than 50,000 people to the Bowery for each of its past two runs. Did those people leave the festival enlightened?

NYC comedy veteran and perennial nervous guy Chris Gethard plays Ilana's boss on Broad City and recently appeared as a juror in Amy Schumer's "12 Angry Men" episode.

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 >>

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life

New York Botanical Garden : 10:00 a.m. daily until November 1

Frida Kahlo was famously inspired by the garden at "Casa Azul" in Mexico City, the house where she was born, lived, and died. The artist's ties to nature, and that particular cobalt-walled patch of it, are evident in much of her work. For this reason, the New York Botanical Garden is an ideal... More >>

Hip-Hop Revolution

Museum of the City of New York : 10:00 a.m. daily until September 13

Jazz was invented in New Orleans, and London has some claim to punk (or so the Brits insist), but hip-hop is all New York's own. Today the Museum of the City of New York opens Hip-Hop Revolution, a photography exhibit showcasing the early days of a new cultural movement, from its birth on city... More >>

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


At New York City Center Stage II : 7:30 p.m. daily until June 28

This Heisenberg has nothing to do with Walter White, so halt your Breaking Bad fantasies right there.

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.

Atlas Obscura, David Plotz's National Geographic–like compendium of curios, just raised itself a cool $2 million in funding. The result? More feature-length articles, a 2016 book on the horizon, and more cool excursions. Way more, actually. Today's first annual Obscura Day comprises 150... More >>
