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!”

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. In fact, it once had two entrances — one for patrons and one for the police. All this and more while sipping on craft cocktails made by award-winning bartenders. The West Village Pub Crawl sets off from Abingdon Square Park.

I’m from Long Island, NY (pronounced “Lawwwng EYE-lind, New Yawk”). I was raised on gospel music. I played sax thru high school. I studied Vocal Jazz Performance in college and I’m obsessed with gowns, books, candles and Sarah Vaughan… no yoga… no Sarah… no yoga. Oh, I also have A.D.D. That’s it in a nutshell. It’s been about 13 years in the music biz. I’ve sang around the world a few times, released over 100 songs and collaborated with everyone from Jay-Z to George Duke, Natalie Cole to Nas and John Legend to Drake. I’ve shared the mic with legends like Patty Labelle and Stevie Wonder and I’ve hit the stage with Rick Ross, Wale, Kirk Franklin, The Ojay’s and Rob Glasper, amongst others. I’m blessed. I have a curious set of giftings. It doesn’t quite fit into any box. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Being diverse allows me to love so many different kinds of people and really, love is the point of it all.
Start off with a glass of wine and some tapas-style dishes. Then move into the auditorium for a brief presentation by Samuel Adams on how Impressionism in art affected the music world. At 7:30pm, the music starts. Listen to the best in the world perform: Debussy — Violin Sonata in G minor and Chausson — Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Quartet, Op.21. In 1874, Claude Monet unveiled an en plein air painting depicting the port of Le Havre. It was this painting, Impression, Sunrise, that gave birth to Impressionism, both the movement and the name. Though Claude Debussy’s music is often compared with the works of Monet – that other great French Claude – Impressionism in music and painting have little in common, other than the perceived dissolution of form attributed to both art forms. Both Debussy and Chausson were passionate about the visual arts – between giving up his legal profession and devoting himself to music Chausson even considered becoming an artist. Yet the two men reacted quite differently to the Impressionist movement. While Debussy drew upon a vast range of visual sources for his orchestral and other instrumental works (from Watteau via Turner to Gustave Moreau), Chausson appears not to have relied upon either literary or visual inspiration for his music. He was a rather conservative composer who, in the age of Ravel and Stravinsky, seemed more drawn to the Romantic tradition of César Franck.

The winner of more Best New Play Awards than any other play in West End history — including the 2019 Olivier Award! In contemporary Manhattan, Eric and Toby are 30-somethings who seem to be very much in love and thriving. But on the cusp of their engagement, they meet an older man haunted by the past, and a younger man hungry for a future. Chance meetings lead to surprising choices as the lives of three generations interlink and collide—with explosive results. Brilliantly re-envisioning E.M. Forster’s masterpiece Howard’s End to 21st-century New York, The Inheritance asks how much we owe those who lived and loved before us, questions the role we must play for future generations, and dares us to fearlessly hold on to the wild ride called life. Profoundly touching and wickedly hilarious, it’s the new play critics rave, “will make you laugh, then cry, then shake your head at its sheer, brilliant audacity.” (City AM)

In this original slapstick comedy, Paddington goes next door to borrow a cup of sugar from his neighbor Mr. Curry, who is in a panic because he’s expecting a visit from his Great Aunt Matilda. And so, Paddington volunteers to help Mr Curry with his to-do list before her imminent arrival. Throughout the afternoon Paddington attempts items on the list – repair the pipes in the bathroom, vacuum the floors, install new wallpaper, bake a cake…. But in typical Paddington fashion, nothing goes to plan. The pipes burst and flood the bathroom. The vacuum cleaner misbehaves and leaves dust everywhere. Paddington adds too much self-rising flour to the cake, and his efforts at wallpapering turn into catastrophic (and sticky) chaos! Will Paddington be able to fix everything before Great Aunt Matilda arrives?

Join this New York tour to sample the delicious effects of mass immigration while learning about those that dared to live the American Dream. Get in touch with the tasty culture of NYC on this New York food tour that is a pleasure for both the body and the mind! This New York City tour starts off at a location where many new citizens are made official, City Hall. Here at the northern edge of the colonial city, we start our journey with a delicious Dutch breakfast treat, just one of many foods that has made its way over thanks to the immigrant population in NYC. On this historical tour of New York, we make our way in a loop around the NYC LES, visiting 100-year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. We stroll the streets of Little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. Marvel at former and still operating synagogues and Jewish clothing stores. We dive into the culture remembered at places such as the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and the African Burial Ground, and the crowded and teaming streets of Chinatown, where you feel like you’re in Shanghai! Along the way on our New York City food tour, we sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Knishes, prosciutto, dumplings, and more. We taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to fulfill the American Dream.

Award-winning actress Laura Linney returns to Broadway in the American premiere of a haunting new solo play adapted by Rona Munro from the bestselling novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout. A sold-out sensation originally produced by the London Theatre Company at the Bridge Theatre in London, Ms Linney was hailed as “luminous” by the The New York Times, “genuinely phenomenal” by Time Out London, and the play was called “deeply affecting and heartbreaking” by The Observer. Linney plays Lucy Barton, a woman who wakes after an operation to find – much to her surprise – her mother at the foot of her bed. They haven’t seen each other in years. During their days-long visit, Lucy tries to understand her past, works to come to terms with her family, and begins to find herself as a writer. This spellbinding story is directed by five-time Olivier Award winner Richard Eyre “with a keen-eyed compassion.” – The New York Times.

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!

The Piaf Experience: The Best of Piaf, Aznavour & Trenet features Margot Sergent, an acclaimed cabaret singer, actress, and harpist who sang her way up from Parisian clubs to prestigious venues such as l’Olympia, almost mirroring the career path of Edith Piaf.

Making a splash in New York City, Sergent will take you by storm with her infectious passion and dedication to French chansons and torch ballads in the unforgettable French legacy of Parisian Cabaret storytelling. Her voice enriched with emotion, she distills the essence of each lyric, weaving together a greater narrative. Sergent is, without a doubt, the preeminent ambassador of Piaf’s legacy at this time. This enchanting show is not one to be missed. Allow yourself to be transported in time to the sonic worlds of “La Vie en Rose,” “Non, je ne regrette rien,” “l’Hymne à l’Amour” and other jewel songs that revolutionized the cabaret genre and made Piaf, Trenet, Aznavour some of the greatest singer-storytellers of all time.

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.
