March Book Launch

Brooklyn Public Library, Central Branch : 7:00 p.m. April 8

In the 1940s, Superman fought the Klan, as the creators of the Superman radio show subjected the hate group to the scorn it deserved.

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 >>

Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival

Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church : 10:00 a.m. April 5

New York has the Annual Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival for the same reason Britain has royal weddings — absolutely insane and enthralling headgear. The tradition goes back to the 1870s, when the city's elite used to strut their stuff after church to show off their Easter Day finery.... More >>

Fort Greene Theater

Birdman with Antonio Sanchez

New York Society for Ethical Culture : 8:00 p.m. April 4

Drummer Antonio Sanchez's walloping traps solo, which drives the masterful piece of pure cinematic artifice that is Birdman, was created as spontaneously as the rest of director Alejandro González Iñárritu's film was meticulously calibrated. Sanchez, who drums for guitarist... 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 >>

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

“This is for everyone” is a tweet by computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee — the inventor of the internet — that was used to light up an Olympic stadium in 2012. In This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, MoMA borrows the tweet for its latest exhibit,... More >>

Queens Museum Studio Program Exhibition

Queens Museum of Art : 5:00 p.m. daily until June 28

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 14

The final season of Mad Men debuts 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 starting today, the Museum of the Moving Image hosts a tribute to... More >>

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, self­promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self­taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller­skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash.... More >>

Mindy Segal

92Y : 7:00 p.m. April 7

There's olive oil ice cream, and hibiscus donuts, so it's really kind of baffling that cookies on the whole haven't strayed too funky with the flavors. Mindy Segal is remedying that. While we can't get enough of the classic chocolate chip and peanut butter varieties, now and forever, we... More >>

National Invitational Tournament

Madison Square Garden : 7:00 p.m. March 31

The National Invitation Tournament is often overshadowed by the NCAA's Men's Tournament, which not only determines the national championship but attracts millions of casual fans who think their brackets can win them some coin and impress their friends.

Life at the Limits: Stories of Amazing Species

American Museum of Natural History : 10:00 a.m. daily from April 4 until January 3

Now that the Discovery Channel only airs programs about white men building things in Alaska and white men building things in the Bayou with some white men busting myths in between, we sorely miss all the animals, plants, and weird nature stuff that we took for granted as kids. The American... More >>

Trenton Doyle Hancock

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

Hancock's self­portrait — a demonic figure with giant tube­shaped 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 long­running mythological... More >>

Dance Theatre of Harlem

New York City Center : 7:00 p.m. daily from April 8 until April 11

Founded in 1969 by Arthur Mitchell, a principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem has built a fresh troupe, and a new reputation, since its reconstitution in 2012 under the direction of former prima ballerina Virginia Johnson.

Forward Ferguson

JACK : 7:00 p.m. every Sun. until June 30

Theater has brought citizens together to heal their ailing polis since the time of ancient Athens.

Reel Big Fish+Less Than Jake+Authority Zero

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 >>

Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily from April 3 until August 23

Liz Gerring/Michelle Dorrance

Joyce Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily from March 31 until April 5

Who says female choreographers can't get work? These two garner rave reviews and pack houses; offering beauty and brains in contemporary and tap styles, they split the week. Go twice.

Cock Sparrer

Warsaw : 7:00 p.m. April 10

Back in 1976, the young punks in Cock Sparrer coulda been the next Sex Pistols, but they famously wouldn't cut their hair into a punk style for Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren (another story has the reason as McLaren wouldn't buy them a second round of beers). Yet, as any punk worth her Docs... More >>
