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. It's no surprise that Beautiful -- The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. See this unforgettable show at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.

Connecting stories from his life to the operas he was playing at the time, Elias Faingersh plays us through a comedic crash course in finding operatic (and personal) meaning, as he recounts his decision to leave a coveted position at the Metropolitan Opera. This story is about the choices faced by most people -- whether to pursue comfort and security or follow their dreams. Faingersh’s musical style is unique. He taps, blows and sings into the brass, adroitly flipping it to use a microphone mounted on the back for operatic vocals and hitting foot pedals to loop sound effects. Combining music, comedy and candor, A Solo From the Pit is a peek into a composer’s mind. See it off-Broadway at the Soho Playhouse.

It should come as no surprise that New York City was a rather rebellious place when it came to respecting the laws of the 18th Amendment. On this three-hour pub crawl, a friendly and knowledgeable guide will take you on a tour of Greenwich Village, while sharing scandalous stories about some of actors, writers, poets and playwrights who frequented the speakeasies. You'll also hear about some of the club owners and entertainers who earned millions and kept the alcohol flowing and the parties rolling right under the authorities' noses. Get the scoop on the playboy mayor of the late '20s, Jimmy Walker, and how his laissez-faire attitude made him known as the Night Mayor, and pay a visit to what might be the most famous speakeasy of them all.
