With the Mean Girls musical taking Broadway by storm, the original 2004 film is enjoying a renaissance. The Plastics and their devious high school mind games have a timeless hold on pop culture. And the movie's hilarious catchphrases -- "On Wednesdays we wear pink," "Stop trying to make 'fetch' happen!" -- have never faded away. Show-Score brings the film back to the big screen at the School of Visual Arts Theatre in New York. See it for the first (or the fifty-first) time and enjoy a special appearance by a guest artist who'll explain the links between the movie and the musical in a pre-screening Q&A session.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.

An ever-timely battle of the sexes heats up in Così fan tutte -- an opera so spicy and sublime it could have only been created by Mozart, classical music's ultimate bad-boy genius, and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, a debauched priest rumored to have lived in a brothel. This Metropolitan Opera production adds another layer of fun by transporting the tale to the carnivalesque world of 1950s Coney Island. Christopher Maltman and Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara star in this story of two randy teenagers whose bet to seduce each other's fiancée goes wildly awry. The result is a classic romantic comedy, with some of the finest arias ever written. Don't miss this fresh re-imagining.
Director Arin Arbus' (OBIE, The Skin of Our Teeth) productions of Shakespeare for Theatre for a New Audience include Othello and, most recently, King Lear. What for Shakespeare is possible after Lear? Ms. Arbus and a brilliant company of artists explore this in The Winter's Tale, which Shakespeare wrote after his great tragedies. Leontes, a jealous king, accuses Hermione, his Queen, of infidelity. But unlike Othello, which ends in tragic deaths, in The Winter's Tale, Shakespeare invented a new form -- half-tragedy, half-comedy, its two parts divided by 16 years. There is metamorphosis. Spring follows winter; comedy follows tragedy; there's a ferocious bear, song, dance and then a miracle: a statue comes alive. The Winter's Tale explores whether there can be forgiveness for terrible crimes. Can a shattered marriage and family be healed? Can there be redemption? Only Shakespeare could make a story as fantastically eventful into cohesive, soul-stirring drama.

Love, betrayal and revenge have never been portrayed with more ravishing beauty than in Lucia di Lammermoor. Though the title character is indeed driven to insanity, it's the audience who goes nuts for Donizetti's tragic opera. The role of the title heroine who teeters between love and madness is shared by sopranos Olga Peretyatko-Mariotti and Pretty Yende, who have each impressed audiences with dazzling bel canto portrayals at the Met. Vittorio Grigolo and Michael Fabiano share the role of her lover. It's impossible not to be drawn into the tale of fragile Lucia, manipulated into marrying a man she doesn't love as she's used by her brother for his own political advancement. The scene when she finally "snaps" remains one of the most sublime -- and technically difficult -- in the entire operatic canon. Roberto Abbado conducts, while Tony winner Mary Zimmerman directs this chilling production of Lucia di Lammermoor.

Quarteto Moderno is widely recognized as one of the most innovative contemporary Brazilian jazz ensembles based in the U.S. Formed in 2008, the ensemble performs guitarist Richard Boukas' compositions in samba, choro, baião, frevo and many more Brazilian genres. Boukas fuses these traditional forms with a rich melodic and harmonic vocabulary drawn from jazz and chamber music. The group's performances showcase a fiery, spontaneous interaction driven by daring improvisations and perpetual rhythmic explorations. Watch them cross musical borders in a pair of afternoon concerts at the Jazz Forum in Tarrytown.
