History called it heroism. They called it high school. Little Rock tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city's formerly segregated Central High School. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow South. On the cusp of the Civil Rights Movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, Little Rock brings urgently to life the Nine's untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this deeply moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences: Would you have had the courage? Delve into the nation's past at New York's Sheen Center.

Before We're Gone is the story of a Pulitzer-winning playwright, screenwriter and outspoken political activist who has disappeared from her high-profile life in New York, Hollywood and the tabloids to hide under an assumed name in a secluded seaside motel in Santa Barbara, Calif. She's surprised by an unexpected visit from a man with whom she had a brief relationship 25 years earlier, when she was 36 and at the height of her Broadway fame. He was naive, 20, and studying to be a Catholic priest. They met during the 1950's in Reno's famous art deco Mapes Hotel, where she was staying for her six-weeks divorce, and he was working in the hotel while on sabbatical from the Franciscan Order, struggling to resolve doubts about the priesthood and himself. Over the last 25 years, they have not seen each other nor spoken. The play stars Leenya Rideout, whose Broadway credits include War Horse, Company, Cabaret and Cyrano de Bergerac. Also starring is John Zdrojeski, who has appeared in numerous regional productions. See this new play by Jerry Small at the 13th Street Repertory Theatre in New York City.

So it makes sense that the Hawaiian Pineapple Company (now Dole) would hire O'Keeffe to paint the island paradise in order to make mouths water for their pineapples. Now you can enjoy the little-known paintings from this trip complemented with lush Hawaiian flora in the The New York Botanical Garden's Conservatory. Come immerse yourself in beauty.

Calliope Rose mixes a dose of Greek Mythology with palace intrigue and the decline of our civilization. It's The Iliad on laughing gas. It's The Odyssey on acid. It's Spartacus on crack. Yes, it's a comedy. The story unfolds in the mythological Beacon Light Lighthouse. Here, "Calliope" Rose Walker tends the light as America's last, lone keeper. In the age of GPS, Rose is a relic, but an agreement with the United States Government maintains that the Walker family mans the lighthouse, so long as a Walker remains. Rose tends the light alone, having lost her husband, Jason, as he defended Beacon against Oriental scallop boats in The Great Scallop War. Her needs are met once a week by a dinghy sent from shore, piloted by her daughter, a mercenary townie with her own designs to transform the crumbling light house into a lucrative, tourist trap. Only Rose stands in her way. Lately, people claim that in heavy weather, the light goes off. Captains claim an alluring voice urges them toward the light and to their destruction. With high profile cruise ships adding Beacon to their port o' call, this critical mass brings Dexter Hacke, a young investigator from The Department of Transportation, to root out the cause. Watch what happens at the Aerodrome in Erma.
