'Thirteen' presented by Random Farms Kids' Theater - Tarrytown Music Hall

Thirteen is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents' divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts? Please note: this production contains mature language and themes. Feb. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 at 7pm; Feb. 7 and 8 at 2pm.

Leah Harper: Complimentary - Hudson River Museum
Through February 28, 2015 - Yonkers
Not a rose, not a candy, but even better, it's a Compliment in time for Valentine's Day. Artist Leah Harper turns the everyday vending machine (with a long tradition of spewing out gumballs and tiny toys) into a Compliment dispensing marvel. Harper's interactive art piece, "Complimentary," will be installed in the Hudson River Museum Lobby.
Turn the knob on the dispenser and out comes your compliment in a plastic toy capsule, and for free! A container next to the dispenser lets you dispose of the plastic capsule for recycling. If you want to give a compliment, too, there will be a box close by in which to place it. Your submitted compliment will be incorporated into a spreadsheet of good words Harper gathers from submissions and online surveys. Her favorite compliment to date, "If you were a potato, you would be a sweet potato."
The Compliment dispenser first made its appearance this fall at New York City's Art in Odd Places festival, and its cheerful mission is the direct output from Harper's study of design for social causes at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work is also featured in Site95’s "Transforming New York Street Objects" and FIGMENT Festival NYC, making environments eventful and interesting, inviting you to join the fun.
Looking ahead, Harper says, "I want to do more work that makes people happy!"
Compliments do just that. Some samples from the Compliment Dispenser:
You Are the Mercedes-Benz of Caviar!
You've Certainly Gotten Enough Beauty Sleep!
That Smile Looks Beautiful on You!
