Set in New York City at the turn of the century, this movie-turned-musical is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what's right. "Newsies" is inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst, and other powerful newspaper publishers. The stage version introduces several brand-new songs by the original team while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," "King of New York," and "Santa Fe."

Masterworks - The Rubin Museum
Through December 31, 2012 - New York

Masterworks: Jewels of the Collection displays some of the museum's most stunning works of art. The stylistic diversity and relationships between various strands of Himalayan and neighboring cultural and artistic traditions are represented by important works of art spanning a period of over one thousand years. In addition to a wide range of Buddhist and Hindu deities rendered in all major media, Masterworks also highlights the museum's most notable recent acquisitions, all of which have rarely or never been exhibited. Life-size facsimiles of an entire sequence of murals from the Lukhang, the Dalai Lamas' Secret Temple near the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet, provide an exceptional opportunity for viewing Himalayan art at its most lavish. The original eighteenth-century wall paintings--inaccessible to the public until the late twentieth century--uniquely depict the most esoteric of meditation and yoga practices in vivid color and detail. Created with new photographic methods by Thomas Laird and Clint Clemens, this display of large-format, high resolution pigment prints allows for even better access to the paintings than is possible in the temple itself. Their presentation at the Rubin marks the first showing in the world of prints created using this technology and also provides the first-ever opportunity outside Tibet to view full-size Tibetan murals in their relationship to portable art from the region.

SANDY RELIEF BENEFIT TOURS - Wall Street Walks
Through December 31, 2012 - New York

As the flood waters recede and downtown New York cleans up and gets back to business, we are left with many reminders of the effects of the storm. Wall Street Walks will be adding points of interest to their regular walking tours so that visitors to New York can experience the power of Hurricane Sandy themselves. The height of flood waters, the damage done to local businesses, the flooded infrastructure of downtown and the widespread recovery efforts will be highlighted at various points during each tour. Interestingly, the areas of downtown New York that were once a part of New Amsterdam in the 1600s were largely spared from the flood waters. Wall Street Walks will take visitors along the 400-year-old streets to the edges of the old coastline, far inland from the current edges of Manhattan, to point out the affected areas versus the unaffected areas. In this way, the Dutch history of New York becomes acutely relevant to the effects of Sandy as well as future storms. As a business affected by Hurricane Sandy, Wall Street Walks would like to give back to the neighborhood that supports it and makes these walking tours possible. To that end, proceeds from each Wall Street Walks walking tour through the end of this year will be donated to local relief efforts. Tickets are $25. Wall Street Walks Tour Schedule History of Wall Street + Ground Zero Tour: Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday 11am; Monday & Wednesday 1pm Exploring Historic Dutch New York: Friday, Saturday & Sunday 1pm 9/11 Memorial + Wall Street Tour: Wednesday 11am Tickets available for purchase online at www.wallstreetwalks.com About Wall Street Walks Wall Street Walks provides guided walking tours of downtown Manh
