Creating A Sense Of Place - Bronx Community College Hall of Fame Gallery
Through November 29, 2012 - Bronx

The impressive new North Hall and Library at Bronx Community College (BCC) is now home to one of the largest public art commissions the Bronx has seen since the late 1930s. On Sunday, November 4, 2012, artist Daniel Hauben’s 22 paintings—collectively entitled A Sense of Place—at the North Hall & Library at BCC and an accompanying exhibition Creating a Sense of Place (on view October 23—November 29, 2012) at the Hall of Fame Gallery, will be publicly celebrated. Honoring a long tradition of incorporating fine art into majestic libraries, Robert A.M. Stern Architects designated specific locations for artwork in their original designs for the new building. Commissioned by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York on behalf of the City University of New York, the commission to create the artwork was awarded to acclaimed Bronx-born Daniel Hauben, who worked on the 22 paintings for three years. The paintings feature classic Bronx vistas and neighborhood street scenes, waterways and bridges, elevated trains, rooftops and BCC campus scenes. Two ten-foot murals grace the stairwells leading up to the library, while 20 paintings measuring five-feet-wide each elaborate the frieze along the balcony that surrounds the elegant and airy Information Commons. Hauben’s focus of the Bronx as subject matter invites the viewer to cultivate a greater appreciation and awareness of the world around them, and to see their environment—and their place within it—in a new light. Born and raised in the Bronx, artist Daniel Hauben has spent nearly 30 years capturing the life of his home borough on paper and canvas. Although he travels periodically to paint in such faraway places as Europe, Costa Rica and South India, he always returns to the streets of the Bronx for inspiration. The winner of numerous awards from the Bronx Council on the Arts, The Bronx County Historical Society, Americans for the Arts and other noteworthy organizations, Hauben has had many solo exhibitions both in the U.S. and abroad. His work is in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York, the Library of Congress, the White House and the New-York Historical Society, as well as many private and corporate collections. More of his work can be seen at danielhauben.com.

Dialogue with Three Chords presents work from new playwright as a benefit for local Veteran-run Charity - Mr. Dennehy's
November 29, 2012 - New York

Dialogue with Three Chords presents “Lots” from playwright Sean Meehan, “Lots” as a benefit for the veteran-run charity On Behalf Of a Grateful Nation. Meehan has been a featured actor in previous Dialogue with Three Chords productions. The show also features live music from on November 29 at 8pm downstairs at Mr. Dennehy’s pub on 63 Carmine Street in Manhattan. Admission is free with $3 suggested donation. All proceeds will benefit On Behalf of a Grateful Nation who raise money to benefit veterans and their families in the New York and New England area. ‘Lots’ is a play for one actor, featuring Meehan in the role he describes as “a man obsessively and repeatedly returns to an event in his past, the catching and killing of a mouse, until he finds the truth beneath the surface." The play is the first work from Meehan, who writes the piece after years as an actor. “A few years ago I found myself daydreaming at a rent paying job I was doing at the time. I’d find myself making up characters, thinking of the perfect auditions, and then one day I realized…write them down. Make your own audition.” In addition to his work with Dialogue with Three Chords, Meehan performed in “NEXT,” a WWII era drama written by Dialogue with Three Chords founder Stephen Gracia. Gracia worked closely with Meehan to develop “Lots” for performance. “It wouldn’t be much of an exaggeration to say that Stephen is the reason I wrote this,” says Meehan. After prompting from Gracia, Meehan sent him the writing he’d begun but never finished. “The next afternoon I had a full page of helpful critique. Since then I have been running drafts by him...Dialogue with Three Chords has been the place that I have kept my artistic half alive.” The show also features a live musical performance from Joe Whyte (www.joewhyte.com). For more information about On Behalf of a Grateful Nation, the veteran founded organization the performance will benefit, visit: ‘www.onbehalf.org’. More information on Dialogue with Three Chords can be found at: http://stephengracia.org. Dialogue with Three Chords was founded by Stephen Gracia and Michael LoPorto and applies the do-it-yourself philosophy of punk to the stage and features short plays and live music. Their work has also been produced at Sargent Theatre, Makor Theater, DUMBO Theatre Exchange, Levenson Hall at Brooklyn College, and the Theaters at 45 Bleecker. ###

'Little Red Riding Hood' - Circle in the Square Theatre
November 29, 2012 - Midtown West

Circle in the Square Theatre School will present "Little Red Riding Hood," a musical for children. This 50-minute musical version of the timeless fable is adapted by Lani Brockman, with music and lyrics by Susan Bardsley, and directed by Isaac Dayley. Little Red Riding Hood on roller skates? A vegetarian Big Bad Wolf? Little Red must overcome the challenge of getting a very large birthday cake past a very hungry Wolf to Grandmother's House. The cast, all graduates of Circle in the Square Theatre School, includes: Ashley Brooke (Little Red); Samantha Ballard (Grandmother); Nate Jensen (The Hunter); and David Lind (The Wolf). Following each performance, there will be a Q&A with the cast members. "Little Red Riding Hood" opens this year's Three Plays for Grades K-6, the popular program that began in 1994. This year's series is dedicated to the memory of Theodore Mann (1924-2012), co-founder of the Theatre and until last winter, artistic director of both Circle in the Square and its acclaimed Theatre School. "Little Red Riding Hood," will be followed by "Cinderella, The Oldest Story Ever Told," a perennial favorite written by David F. Eliet. This multicultural version features Cinderella tales from China, India, and Africa (Feb. 4-8 and Feb. 11-15). The series concludes with "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe," dramatized by le Clanche du Rand, from the classic by C.S. Lewis (March 18-22). Circle in the Square Theatre School, established in 1961, is one of the country's premier schools of professional training for actors and singers, and is the only conservatory in a Broadway theater. In addition to school and public performances of children's plays, the school also conducts classes on playwriting for third graders (at P.S. 11), with their short plays performed by graduate actors on Circle's Broadway stage.

B.B. King - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
Through November 30, 2012 - New York

His reign as King of the Blues has been as long as that of any monarch on earth. Yet B.B. King continues to wear his crown well. At age 76, he is still light on his feet, singing and playing the blues with relentless passion. Time has no apparent effect on B.B., other than to make him more popular, more cherished, more relevant than ever. Don't look for him in some kind of semi-retirement; look for him out on the road, playing for people, popping up in a myriad of T.V. commercials, or laying down tracks for his next album. B.B. King is as alive as the music he plays, and a grateful world can't get enough of him.

Checks & Balances - Presidents and American Finance - Museum of American Finance
Through November 30, 2012 - New York

The US federal government was born of a fiscal crisis produced by the inability of the national and state governments to repay the heavy debts incurred winning independence from England. By luck, pluck and a sprinkling of genius, the new nation averted disaster and soon became one of the most creditworthy in history, able to fund global wars, massive territorial acquisitions and scientific and engineering feats of historic importance and unprecedented scale. Today, however, serious fiscal crisis looms again. The causes and consequences of the current economic crisis are hotly debated, but almost everyone agrees there is no easy fix at hand. Simply put, it has become too difficult to increase taxes or reduce expenditures, and solutions acceptable to both major political parties are in short supply. But the government has faced similar impasses in the past and has managed, with firm leadership, to persevere.
