'As You Like It' - The New Victory Theater
March 01, 2013 - Midtown

A great introduction for children who may be unfamiliar with Shakespeare's works, this play is lighthearted and fun, concluding with the message that all humans need love. Performed by New York's The Acting Company and directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, the inspiration behind this particular performance comes from the popular children's book "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. Here's more information from the press release: New York's The Acting Company, a TONY Honors Recipient for Excellence in Theater, brings Shakespeare's lushly lighthearted comedy 'As You Like It' to The New Victory Theater as part of their 40th anniversary season. Directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, 'As You Like It' by The Acting Company will make its New York Premiere at The New Victory Theater, 209 West 42nd Street, from March 1-10, 2013. The Acting Company debuted 'As You Like It' at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio from January 12 ? February 3; The Acting Company last performed at The New Victory Theater in 2009 with a staging of Henry V directed by Davis McCallum. For this frolicsome, Jazz Age-styled Shakespearean saga, director Dan Rothenberg counts Maurice Sendak's seminal 1963 children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are," among his inspirations. "Rosalind and her boyfriend Orlando's flight of fancy into exile allows them to visit their wild side. They discover that the Forest of Arden is rendered by a child: messy, whimsical, full of animals personified and humans that are beastly," says Rothenberg. "In Shakespeare's "As You Like It," characters explore various forms of the stages of life ? the natural and the man-made, the selfish and the generous, the frightening and embracing ? reminding us that we are all simply mammals that require the greatest healing of all: love," he adds. Dan Rothenberg's recent New York presentations include Zero Cost House (Under the Radar 2013); Annihilation Point (Berserker Residents, Abrons Art Center 2011) and Enjoy (Play Company, 59E59 2010). As a founding member and co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Company, he directed the OBIE Award-winning Chekhov Lizardbrain (2007) and Hell Meets Henry Halfway (2004); in addition to many of the company's other productions, including Twelfth Night, or What You Will (2011); Cankerblossom (2010); and Sweet By-and-By (2008). Also joining from Pig Iron are Michael Kiley for Music and Sound Design, Sarah Sanford for Choreography and Matt Saunders for Scenic Design. The remaining creative team includes Michael Chybowski for Lighting Design, Felix Ivanoff for Fight Direction, Terese Wadden for Costume Design and Andrew Wade for Voice and Speech. Devin Brain serves as Staff Repertory Director, Gina Noele Odierno is the Production Stage Manager, and Brandon Curtis is the Assistant Stage Manager. The production features University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program graduates Megan Bartle (Celia), Buddy Haardt (Oliver), Kelsey Landon (Phoebe), Michael McDonald (Silvius/Le Beau), Noah Putterman (Amiens/William) and Elizabeth Stahlmann (Rosalind). The cast also includes A Guthrie Experience for Actors in Training alumnus Jasmine Bracey (Audrey). Returning with The Acting Company are Ray Chapman (Duke Frederick/Sir Archibald Martext), Joseph Midyett (Orlando) and Chris Thorn (Jacques). The cast is completed by Christopher Michael McFarland (Tourstone), Joseph Tisa (Adam/Corin) and Yaegel T. Welch (Duke Senior/Charles the Wrestler).

March 01, 2013 - New York

Brooklyn-based Americana/Alt-Country band Yarn's sound owes as much to Gram Parsons and Earl Scruggs as to Jerry Garcia and Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones. Following in a fine tradition that includes forward thinking roots bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and New Riders of The Purple Sage, Yarn weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound that turns on hipsters and fans of country music alike, with technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life. On Yarn's latest release, Leftovers, Volume 1 you'll hear vintage tracks recorded during the band's first studio sessions back in 2006 and 2007. With this retro-collection, listeners witness the poignant emotion and emotive story-telling that has come to define the sextet's sound, which straddles the genres of Americana and alt-country, with a dash of jam-band. Their self-titled debut record reached No. 14 on the AMA and R&R Radio Charts, and ranked No. 79 on the AMA's Top 100 Albums of 2007. Yarn's 2008 follow-up, Empty Pockets, spent months in the top 5 on the AMA chart and was honored with eight first round 2009 Grammy nominations in several categories. Yarn's third release, Come on In, held its own as the #25 record on the top 100 Americana chart of 2010. Yarn is touring intensively and their impressive live shows continue to build the buzz and the fan base fueled by their first four records.

Ed Kowalczyk (Former Lead Singer of Live) - City Winery
March 01, 2013 - New York

Ed Kowalczyk, widely known as the lead-singer/songwriter/guitarist of the band LIVE, has built an impressive résumé with his bandmates that includes eight full-length albums that have reached gold and platinum status in 9 countries with total album sales exceeding 20 million, and nine Top 10 radio hits such as "Lightning Crashes", "I Alone", "Selling The Drama" and "Heaven". Live has been one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s. One of the main things that have enabled Live to maintain a devoted fan base is the substantial and durable nature of their lyrics, which have often reflected Kowalczyk's personal and spiritual concerns. "My approach as a songwriter is to write songs that are not finite and will resonate with listeners for a really long time," Kowalczyk asserts. "Sixteen years after our first album, Mental Jewelry, I am still able to get something out of songs Live recorded in the early 1990s--and I think that one of the reasons why we have had so many fans for so long is that our fans are also continuing to find nuances in the songs." Ed released his first solo album, Alive, in 2010, which spawned the hit single "Grace", and he is also the creator/producer of the acoustic tour, Open Wings Broken Strings. Ed is launching a new acoustic show called, I Alone - Acoustic in 2012 and is working on a new album due out in early 2013.

Inspired by his work as one of Vogue's boldest photographers, Klein's first feature film is among his most famous and enduring works. A razor-edged satire of Parisian high fashion and haute couture, Klein's film follows the eponymous Polly, a Brooklyn-born supermodel working the runways of Paris, as she is hounded by a frenzied French television crew. Along the way, Klein holds a mirror to a particular side of '60s youth culture and provides a perceptive and highly-stylized critique of its excesses and pretensions.

Much Ado About Nothing - 133rd Street Arts Center
Through March 02, 2013 - New York

Wednesday & Thursday @ 7:30pm Friday & Saturday @ 8pm Saturday @ 3pm / Sundays @ 5pm $20 discounted tickets are available through January 31st for select performances. Love. War. Conspiracy. Sex. Betrayal. Death. Could all these things truly amount to Nothing? In Shakespeare’s beloved comedy Much Ado About Nothing, Don Pedro and his men return victoriously from war to the house of Leonato, Governor of Messina. Proven in battle, Claudio proposes to Leonato's dutiful daughter Hero, to the dismay of his comrade, Benedick, who wittily battles with the Lady Beatrice on the demerits of love. The stage is set for merry conflict as those who jest at love are caught in a hilarious conspiracy to make them fall in love. Meanwhile a sinister plot brews to unmake Claudio and Hero's nuptials, setting in motion a series of events that challenge loyalties, test character, and examine the fickleness of life and love. Incorporating a vibrant and diverse cast, Snapped Productions deconstructs outdated female archetypes, challenges masculine stereotypes, and advances the classic ideas about male/female relationships, seen here through a modern lens. Much Ado About Nothing is exactly that—the whimsy of human beings taking what should be simple – love – and making it absurdly (and often times, laughably) complex. Gregory Couba directs a cast of 18 including Harpreet Chaggar, Jon Dalin, Jeffrey Delano Davis, Ratnesh Dubey, Ann Gulian, Matt Kelley, Mary-Rose Mack, Norihito Moriya, Keith R. Oliver, Al-nisa Petty, Robby Ramos, Donny Repsher, Jon Adam Ross, Gonçalo Ruivo, Caleb Schaaf, Peter Van Derick, Gary Warchola and Tina Ward.
