Dialogue with Three Chords pits Wonder Woman against censorship in new play - Mr, Dennehy's
March 28, 2013 - New York

Dialogue with Three Chords stages an imagined conversation between William Marston, creator of the DC Comics heroine Wonder Woman and Dr. Frederic Wertham, champion of comic book censorship in “The Last Days of the Brave and Bold ” from playwright Stephen Gracia. The short play is directed by Michael LoPorto as is the curtain raiser monologue, “A People’s History of Super Heroism.” The performance is on March 28 at 8pm downstairs at Mr. Dennehy’s pub on 63 Carmine Street in Manhattan. Admission is free with $3 suggested donation. “The Last Days of The Brave & Bold” uses the backdrop of early McCarthyism as the setting for a debate about censorship, employing two notorious figures in the comic book world. It is set shortly before Dr. Frederic Wetham would release his infamous book “Seduction of the Innocent” where he claimed comic books were eroding the moral compass of at-risk youths. William Marton takes the opposing view on freedom of speech. He vociferously defends his depiction of Wonder Woman as a force for good, showing readers an empowered yet feminine ideal of a woman. “I am telling a comic book story about real people, and it’s intimate. Two men in a room, arguing about which one is the villain,” explains Gracia, “both are trying to do good. Each is destructive in the other’s eyes.” The play is presented with the curtain-raiser monologue “A People’s History of Super heroism” which is a part of Gracia’s ongoing series of monologues which deal with real or imagined experiences of alien abduction. “All the monologues are spoken by the abductees, and it’s important to understand that they completely believe these stories,” says Gracia. “They wake up knowing that some kind of malicious presence waits just beyond our stars. Or, in a life where they are miserable, abused, neglected…someone out there knows they are special and visits them as a comfort and a validation.” More information on Dialogue with Three Chords can be found at: www.dthreec.org. ‘The Last Days of The Brave & Bold” features Larry Greenbush as Dr. Frederic Wertham and Steven Weinblatt as William Marston. ‘When I Dream I See Strange Men: A People’s History of Super Heroism’ features Sean Meehan Dialogue with Three Chords was founded in 2011 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.

Through March 29, 2013 - New York

Traveling the miles along a star-kissed path, the first break came early for D.C.'s ska darlings, when they landed a 1992 tour opening for ska originals, Bad Manners. In 1997, Rancid's Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion): the genre-defining Willis (SPIN Magazine called it "An equal opportunity dancehall crasher — part '60s keg rock, part 2Tone and part Motown") and Awesome Mix Tape #6 (CMJ noted it for "lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms").

ELIOGABALO - The Box
Through March 29, 2013 - New York

Gotham Chamber Opera continues its 2012-2013 Season with ELIOGABALO (1667) by Francesco Cavalli. The show will run from March 15-29, 2013 at 8pm at The Box, 189 Chrystie Street, NYC. Tickets are $30-$175 and are available on www.ticketcentral.com or by phone at 212-279-4200. Opera is full of courtesans and lechers and in the 20th century, outright acts of perversion. (Salome, anyone?) But you have to go back almost 350 years for the work with the most depraved protagonist of all: Eliogabalo, by Francesco Cavalli. Based on the life of the Roman emperor Heliogabalus, who reigned from 218 to 222, the opera tells the story of a man who even today remains notorious for his sexual appetites, his appointment of an all-female senate, and his well-deserved assassination. Cavalli (1602-1676) died without ever seeing a performance of the opera, which was written for the Venice festival of 1668 but was withdrawn and replaced by another opera on the same subject. Ignored for centuries, Cavalli's opera finally received its world premiere in 1999 in Crema, Italy, the composer's birthplace. This production of Eliogabalo will be staged by James Marvel and produced in cooperation with Randy Weiner (Sleep No More) in one of New York’s most decadent nightspots: The Box, on the Lower East Side. Starring Christopher Ainslie as Eliogabalo, the cast will also include Micaëla Oeste, Susannah Biller, Maeve Höglund, Emily Righter, Daryl Freedman, Randall Scotting, John Easterlin, and Brandon Cedel. Music direction by Grant Herreid, associate music direction by Neal Goren, direction by James Marvel, assistant direction and choreography by Austin McCormick.

Through March 30, 2013 - New York

An exhibition focused on the unique visual vocabulary and radical works of Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, and Mario Merz.

Sinister Pop - Whitney Museum of American Art
Through March 31, 2013 - New York

Sinister Pop presents an inventive take on the Museum's rich and diverse holdings of Pop art from the movement's inception in the early 1960s through its aftershocks a decade later. Although Pop art often calls to mind a celebration of postwar consumer culture, this exhibition focuses on Pop's darker side, as it distorts and critiques the American dream. Themes of exaggerated consumption, film noir and the depiction of women in art, the dystopic American landscape, and the intersection of popular culture and politics, are explored through works by acknowledged masters such as Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol, as well as by many artists not traditionally associated with Pop whose art may be understood within its wider field of reference. These include William Eggleston, Peter Saul, Christina Ramberg, and Vija Celmins, among others.

Together they reveal the central role played by television and cinema in articulating the excitement, anxiety, and desire underlying both Pop art and popular culture in the 1960s.

One of the most celebrated short films of all time, and winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, THE RED BALLOON will be presented in the miracle of “Balloon-O-Rama.” GERALD MCBOING-BOING, winner of the 1950 Academy Award for Best Animated Short, will screen with THE RED BALLOON. Adapted from a story by Dr. Seuss and produced by animation legend John Hubley, GERALD MCBOING-BOING is the story of a little boy who speaks through sound effects instead of language.

Designing Tomorrow: America's World's Fairs of the 1930s - Museum of the City of New York
Through March 31, 2013 - New York

Designing Tomorrow: America's World's Fairs of the 1930s showcases six Depression-era expositions that brought visions of a brighter future to tens of millions of Americans. As many Americans still waited on bread lines, fairs in Chicago (1933/34), San Diego (1935/36), Dallas (1936), Cleveland (1936/37), San Francisco (1939/40), and New York (1939/40) foretold much of what would become commonplace in postwar America--from highways and the spread of suburbia to modernist skyscrapers and products such as electric toasters, nylon stockings, and television. The fairs looked forward to an era of prosperity, when ingenuity and innovation would transform not only American cities but also the everyday lives of American citizens. Visitors will see sleek, modern furniture and appliances of the era, vintage footage from the fairs, and futuristic drawings of the New York World's Fair's buildings from the Museum's collection.
