In 1920, the United States enforced the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which banned liquor production, public consumption and the selling of anything alcoholic. This catapulted the criminal world and helped the mob monopolize and grow their illegal business of alcohol. It made some of the most vicious gangsters gain fame and fortune. Illegal bars known as speakeasies opened by the thousands and served bootleg liquor to a thirsty public. On this tour, you will walk in the footsteps of the gangsters and visit some of the watering holes that served illegal liquor during Prohibition. There you can sip a craft cocktail served by some of the top bartenders in New York City. While sipping on your now "legal" alcoholic beverage you will hear stories of the Mafia and how it infiltrated into society. At the end of the tour you will be a “wiseguy” about Prohibition and the Italian mob. Further, you will stop in for some of the best pizza in all of New York City. The tour kicks off at Lt. Petrosino Square.
Boasting two of opera’s all-time favorite arias (“Questa o quella” and “La donna è mobile”), Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto also spotlights one of opera’s most complex title characters. This tragic story of the curse laid upon the hunchbacked jester, his daughter Gilda and the lecherous duke he serves is based on a play by Victor Hugo. Metropolitan Opera’s renowned singers and the iconic Opera House in New York offer a new twist on the classic, setting it in Las Vegas in 1960, a time and place with surprising parallels to the decadence of the original Renaissance setting. Rigoletto will be sung in Italian with titles in English, German, Spanish and Italian. A glass of champagne or a nonalcoholic beverage is included with each ticket.

Witness the stunning tour-de-force solo performance of actor Malaika Uwamahoro at Theatre Row in New York as she transforms herself into every character in this harrowing yet uplifting true story.
