A theater company most terrible is about to stage a murder most foul … no good can come of this. Actually, these wannabe thespians will be lucky to make it through opening night without some real corpses stacking up, because this is The Play That Goes Wrong. And boy, does it. But what’s a chaotic series of mishaps for them makes for “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post) and proof that sometimes a show can be so wrong, it’s right. Broadway’s most award-winningest comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has racked up more laurels than Caesar, conquering stages from Paris to London to Broadway, and now it’s returning to wreak hilarious havoc on New World Stages. See for yourself why Forbes said, “You’ll never have a better time in a theater!”

Relive the past on this exciting three-hour guided walking tour during which your guide will help make the past come alive. In 1920, the United States enacted the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, banning liquor production, public consumption and the selling of any alcoholic products. This catapulted the criminal world and helped the mob monopolize and grow their illegal business of alcohol production. Some of the most vicious gangsters gained fortune and fame. Illegal bars known as speakeasies opened all over the country and served bootleg liquor to the thirsty public. As Al Capone said, “All I do is supply a public demand.” You’ll start your tour at Petrosino Square and walk in the footsteps of the gangsters and visit some of the watering holes that served illegal liquor during Prohibition. At each of the three to four stops you can (legally) sip a craft cocktail, beer or wine or even a shot available for purchase and served by the top bartenders in New York. While sipping on your now “legal” alcoholic beverage you’ll hear stories of the Mafia and how it infiltrated society. By the end of the tour you will be a “wiseguy” about Prohibition and the mob.

The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever. First produced in 1959 and adapted two years later into a now-classic film starring Sidney Poitier, A Raisin in the Sun is as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the limited return of this incredible story to their stage — a story that follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a “white” neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers’ many dreams.

Jude Collective and Imperial Bodega have teamed up to create an immersive audio/visual experience featuring digital artwork by Linda Loh and music curated by Imperial Bodega. The installation is comprised of multiple projected, digital artworks inspired by ideas around light-based phenomena. Most pieces have their origins in sources of light that are then distorted or transformed using digital methods. The works arise from the artist’s interest in the relationship of light to altered states of consciousness, sensations of boundarylessness and infinity, and whether representation of things elusive and ephemeral can be a metaphor for experiences of transcendence. In conjunction there will be a DJ set by Hideto and live performance by local NYC collective, TribeWild. Celestial Bodies’ was born out of a mutual desire to create a space for all types of creatives to connect and build relationships that will drive their practice by inspiring conversations and collaboration across mediums.

When Clement Moore wrote his poem ’Twas the Night Before Christmas in 1837, he probably didn’t think that it would one day be adapted into a circus stage show featuring acrobats on roller blades or elves busting out hip-hop dance moves. But ultimately, the show is about a cynical girl learning to embrace the loving spirit of Christmas, which we think Mr. Moore would approve of — even if he was confused by the hoop-diving, pop-and-locking reindeer dancers.

Judy Garland is an icon, loved as Dorothy in Wizard of Oz. But in the 1930s, Deanna Durbin was a much bigger star. A favorite of Roosevelt, Churchill, even Mussolini, her first kiss was front page news in the New York Times.

Ingenue tells the true tale of the lifelong friendship — and rivalry — of these two great stars of Old Hollywood. Featuring the songs: “Someone to Care for Me,” “Zing Went the Strings of My Heart,” “Molly Malone,” “Always,” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

TheaterWorksUSA’s production of Peter Pan is based on John Caird and Trevor Nunn’s 1982 adaptation, which was originally developed for London’s Royal Shakespeare Company. In the spirit of the original tale, this production tells the story through the eyes of six children living in Edwardian England. Together, they transform the Darling family’s nursery into Neverland, turning pillows into clouds, long-johns into shadows, an ironing board into a ship’s plank, and antique snowshoes into a crocodile’s snapping jaws. This enchanting production celebrates childhood and captures the magic of the imagination. Ages 3 and up.

It should come as no surprise that New York City was a rather rebellious place when it came to respecting the laws of the Eighteenth Amendment. In the West Village there used to be four saloons on every block. With Prohibition there would be four saloons on every corner. Get ready to explore the West Village, a neighborhood that certainly was at the vanguard of so many radical changes in American society during the Roaring Twenties including the prevalence of speakeasies. We’ll learn about some of the people who frequented the speakeasies. The local actors, writers, poets and the playwrights and other bohemians. And we’ll also learn about some of the club owners and entertainers like Texas Guinan, who actually lived in the neighborhood. We will learn about another local resident, who happened to be the mayor of New York City in the late 20’s, Mayor Jimmy Walker, and how the so-called Night Mayor’s lessez-faire attitude helped create a culture of alcohol second to none in the U.S. We’ll visit some unusual and not so unusual haunts on this tour including a place more associated with literary greatness and perhaps the most famous speakeasy of them all that once had two entrances—one for patrons and one for the police. We’ll step inside a building from 1826. All this and more while sipping on craft cocktails made by award-winning bartenders with nary a hint of scandal. It will be the Bee’s Knees! FAQs Do I need to purchase tickets in advance or can I purchase tickets at the door?Please purchase your tickets in advance. If you already purchased tickets and need to add people to the pub crawl, please contact us at [email protected] or 347-868-7710. If a tour is is running on a certain date and the event has not reached capacity, you may buy tickets at the door at the start. What is your refund policy?We have a 24-hour refund policy for tickets purchased directly from this website. Please contact us no later than 24 hours before the start time of the tour at [email protected] If you do not cancel your tour within this time frame you will be held responsible for the total amount of your tour. A refund will be issued, however, if we need to cancel a walking tour because of severe weather or a tour guide cannot make the tour and no substitute is available. What is your rescheduling policy?Tour tickets can be rescheduled with at least 24 hours before the tour start time at [email protected] with the following exceptions: In the case of extreme weather in the forecast, we will contact you at the email address you provided when you booked to offer you rescheduling options. Otherwise, we conduct our tours rain, snow or shine. If you’ve had a family emergency or an unforeseen trip date change, at our discretion, we will try to reschedule your tour reservations (depending on availability) or issue a credit voucher. In such a scenario, please contact us right away at [email protected] If we have to cancel a tour. Will the tour operate under any weather conditions? All of our walking tours will take place rain, snow or shine. Please bring an umbrella and dress appropriately. Remember approximately half the tour will be indoors. However in the case of severe inclement weather (90% forecast with winds at 16 mph or 26 kph) we do reserve the right to cancel a tour. In these instances, we will notify you via the email or phone number provided at purchase and offer refunds and rescheduling options. Are there group size minimums and maximums?We like to cap the pub crawls at 16 adults to keep it possible when entering the pubs. As for minimums, we will do the tour for one customer if necessary. While, we would be operating at a loss, we believe there are many ways to travel and enjoy experiences and sometimes doing it solely is one of them. If I miss the walking tour I purchased, can I just show up for another one?No. Your ticket is only valid for the tour you selected at the time of purchase (both date and time specific). This allows us to reserve your spot in the event the pub crawl sells out. I live in New York. Will I appreciate the tours? Absolutely! Most of our customers are New Yorkers and they often exclaim just how much they didn’t know about their own home city! New York City is big with four hundred years of history. Tour Guides specialize in this. Just another aspect of the service we provide. Is the tour suitable for minors or children?Yes. According to New York State law, minors 16 years or older can legally enter bars without a parent or guardian. However, they can not drink until they are 21. Of course it is the individual bar’s discretion whether or not to allow a minor into their establishment. If you bring a minor on the tour, please notify us in advance and we will choose bars that might not have a bouncer or doorman and would permit the minor to enter the bar (and not drink, of course). How much will we walk and is it strenuous? Our pub crawls tend to be anywhere from one mile to two miles which is considered an easy to moderate walk. Our Central Park pub crawl is 2.8 miles which is considered to be a hike. What clothing should I wear? You should definitely wear shoes comfortable for walking on the city streets. You can wear 20‘s clothing for our Prohibition Pub Crawls if the mood hits you. Some of the bars are on the upscale side, so we like to suggest you look “business casual” or “smart casual”. That would infer no, cut-offs, jeans, flip-flops, sandals, or T-shirts. Other than that, check the forecast and dress accordingly. Are gratuities included in the walking tour price?Gratuities are not part of the tour fee, but if you enjoyed your time on the tour, gratuities are very much appreciated. Where do we meet for the tour?We will email you a confirmation and the precise meeting location right after you have purchased your tour. If you don’t see the confirmation please check your email spam folder. Some meeting locations will give the address of the pub. Assume, unless otherwise told, that the meeting location will be inside of the pub. What do I do if I am late?The tour starts promptly at the designated time, so please try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early. If you are not at the meeting location at the start time, we will begin the tour leave without you for the sake of the attendees who arrived on time. If you don’t find us, we will provide you with a contact number and email in case an urgent matter prevented you from showing up on time. We will try to assist your in finding your tour group. Can I purchase a gift certificate for tours?Yes, tour gift certificates are available and can be purchased using the “Book Tour” link. Is my email address required to purchase tickets?Yes, we require a valid email address to send you a purchase confirmation, instructions on where to meet at the beginning of the tour and alerts If there are any changes to the tour (i.e. cancellation because of weather, etc.). As per our privalry policy, we will not sell or rent your email to third parties. Will drinks be included on the tour? If a ticket is purchased at full price, one complimentary craft cocktail will be included on the tour per passenger that is 21 years of age and older. Will food be available on the tour? Come hungry. Most of the speakeasies we visit will have a food menu including the first location which has a pop-up restaurant. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? Public transportation is best as street parking is scarce. Take either the A, C or E to 14th Street. Abington Square Park is a short walk from there. How can I contact the organizer with any questions?You can email us at [email protected] or call us at 347-868-7710. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?Yes. Please either print the confirmation email or show the email on your mobile device to your tour leader. Can I update my registration information?Yes. Please do so on your Eventbrite account page. Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?Yes. Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?No. Is the tour accessible to the handicapped? Yes.

The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello needs a good cover; ours is a literary cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event. Doors open at 7pm with a happy hour and live jazz from 7-8pm. The show begins at 8pm with public performances from 8pm-11pm. An after party, complete with private poetry readings, tarot readings, and other intimate, mystical experiences will run from 11pm until late, with doors opening to the public and potential after-party attendees at 11pm. The Poetry Brothel is brought to you by The Poetry Society of New York.

The evening culminates with a dance party performed by the Nat Osborn Band, an international touring act based in Brooklyn that has been a staple at New York’s top clubs for half a decade.

Internationally renowned trial lawyer John Paris plays to win, both in and out of court. For Karen Lukoff, John’s young associate, losing has never been an option either. Together, they are a litigation juggernaut. John’s nephew Dan Burks isn’t sure where he fits, if at all. After a major lawsuit victory, John’s firm celebrates the win as hard as they fought for it. In the drunken morning hours, left alone, John and Karen collide in a high-octane moment that will cause everyone—including the audience—to question what they know about desire, consent, winning and losing. This new play written by Dep Kirkland and directed by Rick Andosca begins performances at New World Stages this fall.

Life in NYC begins AFTER MIDNIGHT … rather than your typical tour, we offer an experience never before offered… See NYC after the “regular” people have vacated the streets and New York’s true underbelly exposes itself. We will walk midtown Manhattan experiencing the sights, sounds and tastes of the City that never sleeps. I’m a retired NYPD Cop that worked undercover VICE/Narcotics and a serial entrepreneur with extensive experience in the food & beverage industry having owned/operated restaurants, nightclubs and bars in New York City and Miami. Like a lot of people, I enjoy NYC after the “normal” people are sleeping. Come out with us to explore the city’s underbelly of misfits and crazies all while enjoying nightlife, wildlife and food. The experience is 2 hours, but we tend to party at the last watering hole until they kick us out, so you’re welcome to stay! This Tour is a fantastical mixture of gastronomy and mixology after midnight. Explore the most coveted, often hidden haunts of New York City. We take you through the neighborhoods that come to life late-night in NYC while sampling food and spirits. Call it a food experience, call it a bar crawl; either way it’s an insomniac’s dream come true!

First conceived as exhibitions of creations from the mind of Leonardo Da Vinci and the masterworks of Michelangelo, DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience is a one-of-a-kind, multimedia production that brings the works of these two Renaissance men into a brand-new, contemporary light. In the DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience, audiences take an awe-inspiring journey through the Italian Renaissance, led by creator Mark Rodgers, experiencing the world and its possibilities through the eyes of these two monumental geniuses. “__DaVinci & Michelangelo__ has something that everyone can relate to,” says Rodgers. “The impact of everything they said and did can be found in our lives today.” Through exploration of their inventions, machines, sketches, paintings, and sculptures, Rodgers connects the immortal work of DaVinci & Michelangelo to modern day geniuses, such as Les Paul, Van Cliburn, and Paul McCartney, and encourages audiences to discover their own “inner” DaVinci and Michelangelo.

The gospel musical stage play The Empty Box sheds light on the merging of two families with different perceptions, belief systems and levels of faith. Paris was taught to see only what is directly in front of her. Because she comes from a privileged family that gives her everything that she wants, she has not learned the power in prayer or faith. She was comfortable with her life until she met the smart, kind and handsome Bryson Robbins. Bryson’s story is different from Paris’ in that his family could not offer him financial wealth but rather taught him the importance of having a relationship with God. Bryson’s struggles has made him a prayer warrior, a dreamer and allows him to see what others do not. Watch as this couple along with their families try to bridge their different beliefs. It is possible, that the powerful experience of faith which normally binds people together, may actually tear these two families apart.

Join a pub crawl at the Crossworlds of the World and learn about Prohibition and its effects on world-famous Times Square. In 1910s, Times Square was the new entertainment center of New York. The legitimate theater industry was moving in. Fancy restaurants called lobster palaces were in vogue. Illegal casinos would be opening up. Prostitution would spill north from the Tenderloin district. And then the most dramatic change would occur — Prohibition. On this three-hour pub crawl, see the locations of where New York’s underworld held court during the Great Experiment. Visit a hotel dubbed the Country Club of 42nd Street that closed due to Prohibition. Gain entrance to a speakeasy on the famous Club Row. Drink where the Broadway stars and fans had dined for a generation. Hit a swanky bar located in a famous Art Deco hotel. Step into a famous deli where a visionary gangster funded the vice that made Times Square the epicenter of 1920s New York Jazz Age. All this and more on this boozy pub crawl at the Crossroads of the World.

Prohibition was a unique period of time in American history. Perhaps nowhere in New York City was this more demonstrated than in the pre-dominantly Irish neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. On this three-hour pub crawl, we will stop at three bars that were once speakeasies in Hell’s Kitchen for drinks. Having the benefit of being next to the Hudson River, many of the early successful bootleggers in New York City were Hell’s Kitchen residents at some point in their lives either in their formative years or as adults. They would utilize the coming and goings of ships on the Hudson River, called rum runners, to receive illicit alcohol. We will learn about who many of these early bootleggers were, their schemes and the organization they belonged to dedicated to trafficking in the shipped alcohol. We will also learn of the rebels amongst these scofflaws — those independent-minded gangsters who often didn’t play by underworld’s rules and the consequences of their actions. Further, we will see how Prohibition ended and how the gangsters ended—either their lives or their careers as bootleggers.

There are more World War II stories than you can count, but Black Angels Over Tuskegee tells a story you won’t see in most of them. It’s the ultimate underdog tale, the journey of six trailblazing black men who want to fly. At the time, the military was segregated, and the brave black pilots and their support team that became known as the Tuskegee Airmen faced not only the dangers of war but also racial discrimination from within and outside the military. Black Angels Over Tuskegee, now at St. Luke’s Theatre, tells the true story of six men attempting to become Tuskegee Airmen. The play explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow laws, their intelligence, their patriotism, their dreams of an inclusive fair society and the brotherhood they found in each other as they persevered — and excelled — in the face of the enormous obstacles acting against them.
