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!”

For a singer with such powerful pipes, it’s something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a “listener.” Then again, maybe it’s her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Sade, Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Cafe Wha?

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.

After over 500 years, the two greatest minds and artists of the Renaissance will make their New York stage debut in DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience. 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.

Throw in a sharp-tongued butler (um, house manager), a champagne-soaked bridezilla and a snarky stepson, and you have a perfect storm of pandemonium — the fun kind — in this comedy with a heart, reminding us why marriage and divorce make for the strangest of bedfellows.

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.
The title says it all — this is a unique evening of entertainment, even for New York City.
