(Although it's a fabrication, you can interview Lower East Siders about it and eight out of ten will tell you they know where it is.) Masters Ford and Page are two businessmen urging the passage of SPURA through the City Council (and standing to profit from it). Their eponymous wives are both active in the community. The comic hero, John Falstaff, is a classic Lower East real estate man always looking for the next big score. In this case, the real estate he's angling for are the estates of Ford and Page.

Newspaper Fiction: The New York Journalism of Djuna Barnes - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 19, 2012 -

Newspaper Fiction: The New York Journalism of Djuna Barnes, 1913-1919 is an exploration of the early journalistic career of American writer and women's rights advocate Djuna Barnes (1892-1982). Though best known for her modernist novels and plays, including Nightwood (1936) and The Antiphon (1958), Barnes spent the period between 1913 and her departure for Europe in 1921 living in New York's Greenwich Village and working as a writer and illustrator for publications including the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and Vanity Fair. The product of an unconventional household, she developed an outsider's perspective on "normal" life that served her as an artist, and a liberal sexuality that fit in perfectly with the bohemian lifestyle of Greenwich Village and, later, the lesbian expatriate community in Paris. She used journalism as a means to understand New York City's people and places, and as an excuse to push boundaries and explore society's margins. On view will be forty-five objects, including documentary photographs, drawings, works on paper, and Barnes's stories in newsprint, including eight illustrations she composed to accompany her newspaper columns. Her work suggests a proto-feminist sensibility, emphasizing politics as something experienced on an individual, emotional level.

Disney Theatrical Productions Presents 'Newsies The Musical' on Broadway - Nederlander Theatre
Through August 19, 2012 - Manhattan

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."

Gold, Jasper, and Carnelian: Johann Christian Neuber at the Saxon Court - Frick Collection
Through August 19, 2012 - New York

Johann Christian Neuber was one of Dresden's most famous goldsmiths. Sometime before 1775 he was named court jeweler to Friedrich Augustus III, elector of Saxony, and in 1785 he was appointed Curator of the Grunes Gewolbe (Green Vault), the magnificent royal collection of Augustus the Strong, the founder of the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory. For more than thirty years, Neuber created small gold boxes, chatelaines, and watchcases decorated with local semiprecious stones such as agate, jasper, and carnelian. He fashioned enchanting landscapes, complex floral designs, and geometric patterns with tiny cut stones, often incorporating Meissen porcelain plaques, cameos, and miniatures. These one-of-a-kind objects, which reflect the Saxon court's interest in both luxury items and the natural sciences, remain prized treasures today, but have never before been shown together in a monographic exhibition. The exhibition aims to shed light on the master's transformative contribution to this art form, incorporating the results of newly performed technical research to answer questions about the dating of Antico's works, his technique, and his development as an innovative artist. Jointly organized by the National Gallery of Art and The Frick Collection, the exhibition opened in the fall of 2011 in Washington, D.C., before traveling to New York City the following spring. The exhibition is curated by Eleonora Luciano, Associate Curator of Sculpture at the National Gallery of Art, in collaboration with Denise Allen, Curator at The Frick Collection. The accompanying catalogue is written by an international team of scholars including Eleonora Luciano, Denise Allen, and Claudia Kryza-Gersch, Curator of Italian Sculpture at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. It will be the first independent monograph in English to focus on the artist and the first comprehensive presentation of his works in color.

Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada's Impossible Conversations at Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through August 19, 2012 -

The spring 2012 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art is Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. The exhibition, on view from May 10 through August 19, 2012 (preceded on May 7 by The Costume Institute Gala Benefit), explores the striking affinities between these two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's satirical "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, curators Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton orchestrate conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of the designers' most innovative work. In the galleries, iconic ensembles by Schiaparelli and Prada are presented alongside short videos of simulated conversations between the two designers directed by Luhrmann, focusing on how the women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches. "Juxtaposing the work of Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada allows us to explore how the past enlightens the present and how the present enlivens the past," said Koda. "The connection of the historic to the modern highlights the affinities as well as the variances between two women who constantly subverted contemporary notions of taste, beauty, and glamour," added Bolton The Met's website includes special, in-depth features on the exhibition: Follow us on and to join the conversation about the exhibition and gala benefit.

SMALL VICTORIES PRODUCTIONS in association with THE NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL are pleased to announce the world premiere production of Dani Vetere’s HADRIAN’S WALL, directed by Stephen Cedars. HADRIAN’S WALL will play a limited engagement at Connelly Theater, 220 E 4th Street, New York NY 10009). Performances begin Friday, August 10 and continue through Sunday, August 19.   Ramona is the brilliant archaeologist everyone has their eye on– or at least, she was, before she was accused of looting from a site over a decade ago.  Now her biggest concerns are finishing the Sunday crossword and her growing collection of dusty library books. David is the lawyer, friend and once jealous boyfriend who somehow manages to keep up with her. He considers it his job to keep his rather uncooperative client out of jail and bring her Chinese takeout.   Amy is the young PhD candidate who arrives just wanting to meet this local legend but winds up just wanting to be close to her.  Her passion reminds Ramona what it’s like to want something – and someone. Chuck is a baby triceratops.   In one Greenwich Village apartment, they find love, betrayal, ancient mysteries, and secrets - big ones.  Will Ramona’s ties to the past keep her living in it? Two girls, a guy and a dinosaur. The production stars Laura Siner* as Ramona, Rebecca White* (Off-Broadway’s The Exonerated (director Bob Balaban)) as Amy, and Eric Rolland* as David. *performing courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.

Joie de Vivre - Hullaballoo Collective - PS Project Space
Through August 19, 2012 - New York

PS Project Space presents Joie de Vivre, a group exhibition featuring artwork from the Hullaballoo Collective, an eclectic New York City-based group of artists. Hullaballoo Collective first exhibited in the March 2012 Fountain Art Fair at the legendary 69th Regiment Armory, the site of the original 1913 Armory Show in which modern art was first publicly presented in the United States. Seeking Joie de Vivre is a theme in our daily lives as visual artists. Embracing joy, inclusiveness, and unity, while respecting artistic diversity is our collective "work in progress." Hullaballoo Collective artists create work using varied ways of seeing and making; the viewer is then invited to seek connections, associations, unexpected dialogues and individual discoveries in this artistic diversity. In the past, the Salon des Refusés and the Society of Independent Artists helped provide footing for the emerging avant-garde in art by creating opportunities for the public to see their members' work. With the same scrappy energy the Hullaballoo Collective creates its own exhibitions, bringing a blast of fresh work with every showing. Joie de Vivre will feature paintings, prints and sculpture hung salon style, curated cooperatively by the artists in the collective. We exhibit together to celebrate life. We, the Hullaballoo Collective, have taken a leap and offer the summer-in-Chelsea-audience the opportunity to come and see what the Hullaballoo is all about. Artists: Ellen Alt, Cecilia André, Sharon Appel, Marianne Barcellona, Fran Beallor, Richard Brachman, Gulsen Calik, Pamela Casper, Ursula Clark, Barbara Coleman, Yvette Cohen, Colleen Deery, Molly DiGrazia, John Erianne, Patricia Fabricant, Robin Feld, Elaine Forrest, Robin Gaynes-Bachman, Beth Giacummo, Theresa Greenberg, Norma Greenwood, Bette Klegon Halby, Sarah Haviland, Aimee Hertog, Eileen Hoffman, Sandra Indig, JORDAN!™, Robin M Jordan, Bernard Klevickas, Melissa Kraft, Liz-N-Val, Barbara Lubliner, Janie Milstein, Adrienne Moumin, Nancy Nikkal, CJ Nye, Nancy Oliveri, Walter O'Neill, Cade Pemberton, Elisa Pritzker Jeffrey Allen Price, Peggi Pugh, Jacqueline Rada, Julie Scott, Joyce Silver, Regina Silvers, Cigdem Tankut, Linda Tharp, Shira Toren, Grazia Vita
