Bat Boy: The Musical - Westchester Sandbox Theatre
January 18, 2013 - Mamaroneck

Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. presents "Bat Boy: The Musical." Story and book by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe. Directed by Michael J. Mirra. Musical direction by Mary Ann Ivan; choreographed by Theresa Burns. Based on a story ripped straight from The Weekly World News tabloid, "Bat Boy: The Musical" is a faux-horror musical comedy about a half boy/half bat creature who is rescued from a cave near Hope Falls, West Virginia, and taken in by the empathetic wife of the local veterinarian. "Edgar," as he's named, quickly learns to speak and act in civilized ways as a "normal" boy - even falling in love for the first time. Danger looms, however, when a murderous rampage sweeps Hope Falls, the town learns of a deep, dark secret, and the shocking story of Bat Boy's unholy origin is revealed. This off-kilter satire, which will reunite the director and choreographer behind the Westchester premiere of "Reefer Madness!", offers clever send-ups to other celebrated musicals, a hilarious book, surprising twists and turns of plot, and a lesson in the agony of being different and accepting your inner beast. To purchase tickets, go to brownpapertickets.com/event/298524, or call 800-838-3006 and mention "Bat Boy." Through January 26.

'Ice Age' to the Digital Age: The 3D Animation Art of Blue Sky Studios - Katonah Museum of Art
Through January 20, 2013 - Katonah

This unique interactive exhibition looks at the imaginative work of Greenwich, Connecticut-based Blue Sky Studios, a leader in the animation industry for over 20 years. Creator of such blockbuster films as the "Ice Age" series, "Robots," and "Rio," the studio prides itself on technical innovation, while retaining a strong narrative heart. '"Ice Age" to the Digital Age' will guide visitors through Blue Sky's entire process of creating computer-animated films: from initial concepts, storyboards, character design, background art, and three-dimensional modeling, to the highly technical work of animation, rigging, materials, lighting, special effects, and sound. In addition to final movie clips, the exhibition will feature rarely-seen original concept drawings, sculptural models, props, and digital stills. Interactive stations will allow visitors to sketch a scene or manipulate computer-generated images to better understand the innovative technology that brings the films to life. Katonah resident Chris Wedge, a co-founder of Blue Sky in 1987, believes that the secret to the studio's success is in its inventive process. In his view, the art challenges technology and technology inspires the art. The Museum will be turning all the galleries, including the Learning Center, over to this exhibit. There will be gallery talks with Blue Sky co-founder Chris Wedge and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" directors Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier, as well as a calendar of programming in partnership with the Jacob Burns Film Center.

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.

Julius Caesar - Theater 54
Through January 20, 2013 - New York City

Julius Caesar at the Theater 54 Features all female cast . Monsterpiece Theater Collective's Julius Caesar interprets Shakespeare's classic with a modern twist and a nod to contemporary social status and classic Kabuki tradition. As adapted by director Anthony D. Pound, the all-female cast tackles questions of honor versus ambition, safety versus freedom, and destiny versus self-preservation. Using a representational all-girl school setting and finding inspiration in earliest sense of Kabuki ritual, Monsterpiece sets about to create an amalgamated world of theatrical storytelling setting few rules and breaking them all as we back stab our way to the top of Shakespeare’s social structure. Performances are Thursday, January 17; Friday January 18; and Saturday, January 19 at 8:00 p.m., with matinee performances Saturday January 19 and Sunday January 20 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are at Theater 54 at 244 W. 54th St., 12th floor. Tickets are $20.00 and can be reserved at mptheatercollective@gmail.com. The cast includes Lauren Friedlander and Jessica Cannizzaro as Julius and Octavius Caesar. Savannah Frazier as Mark Antony; Sarah Quigley (Brutus), Kelly Rogers (Cassius), Allyson Capetta (Casca), and Katia Haesuer (Cimber) as the conspirators; Helyn Messenger and Peregrine Heard as Portia and Calpurnia; and Gabi VanHorn as Cinna the Poet. Monsterpiece Theater Collective is a group of risk-taking artists working together to tell compelling stories imaginatively by creating, supporting, and producing each other’s work in readings, workshops, and short run full productions. They specialize in kicking down closed doors and blowing up glass ceilings. monsterpiecetheatercollective.blogspot.com/ Facebook.com/MPTCollective For more information, contact Anthony D.

Picasso Black and White - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through January 23, 2013 - New York

Picasso Black and White marks the first major exhibition to focus on the recurrent motif of black and white throughout Pablo Picasso's career. Surveying his oeuvre from 1904 to 1971, Picasso Black and White examines the artist's lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette through approximately 115 paintings and a selection of sculptures and works on paper. The exhibition thematically traces the artist's unique vision throughout his work, including early monochromatic blue and rose paintings, gray-toned Cubist canvases, elegant and austere neoclassical portraits and nudes, Surrealist-inspired figures, forceful and somber scenes depicting the atrocities of war, allegorical still lifes, vivid interpretations of art-historical masterpieces, and the electric, highly sexualized canvases of Picasso's last years. The exhibition includes significant loans drawn from private collections, including many from the Picasso family; from museums across Europe and the United States; and from numerous public and private European and American collections, many of which have not been exhibited or published before. The exhibition is organized by Carmen Gimenez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, with assistance from Karole Vail, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Picasso Black and White is sponsored by Bank of America. Major support is provided by the Picasso Black and White Leadership Committee, with Christina and Robert C. Baker, Chairs; Acquavella Galleries; J. Ira and Nicki Harris Foundation; The Lauder Foundation-Leonard and Evelyn Lauder Fund; Phyllis and William Mack; Stephen and Nan Swid; and Aaron I.

Christophe Come: Material Transformation Exhibition Opening - Cristina Grajales Galelry
Through January 25, 2013 - New York

Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of furniture and lighting designer Christophe Côme, Material Transformations. Based in Paris, Côme creates sculptural furniture and lighting design through his manipulation of industrial materials, resulting in objects that are elegant and timeless. Material Transformations will present a range of new, exquisitely crafted furniture and lighting pieces, including cabinets, screens, and coffee tables. In addition to his signature glass roundels, Côme will incorporate hand-glazed tiles, enameled copper, colored glass and gilded wood into his uniquely handcrafted wrought iron forms. The addition of these vividly colored and richly textured materials continues Côme’s tradition of juxtaposing the raw with the refined, all while maintaining the sophisticated, graceful style for which he is so well known. Born in Normandy, France in 1965, Côme began his artistic career as a sculptor, training under Louis Derbe. Working primarily in cast bronze, Côme’s original creations were sculpture and jewelry until the mid-1990s, when his focus shifted to furniture forms. His work has a distinctive style of pure elegance that is balanced with a contemporary outlook. His sculptural perspective emanates through his furniture and lighting designs, elevating every day objects into works of art. In addition to numerous important private collections, Côme’s work is featured in Chanel boutiques in Paris, Beirut, and Shanghai. Please join us for the opening reception at Cristina Grajales Gallery on Thursday, November 8th from 6PM-8PM.

Faking It - Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through January 27, 2013 - New York

This international loan exhibition traces the history of manipulated photography from the 1840s through the early 1990s, when the computer replaced manual techniques as the dominant means of doctoring photographs. Most of the two hundred pictures on view were altered after the negative was exposed -- through photomontage, combination printing, overpainting, retouching, or, as is often the case, a blend of several processes. In every instance, the final image differs significantly from what stood before the camera at any given moment.

Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor - La MaMa E.T.C.
Through January 27, 2013 - NYC

With humor and vision, "Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor" (http://kaneandhabil.com) explores the original family sins that are still impacting our civilization. The title characters are the children of Adam and Eve. The play is a comedy, written and directed by Serge Ernandez. The production features an adept cast headed by Obie-winner Sheila Dabney as Eve, who also directs the play's chorus. Ernandez is a veteran of The Living Theatre; Dabney is a senior member of La MaMa's Great Jones Rep. La MaMa E.T.C. will present the play's premiere run January 18 to 27 in its second-floor Club. Like other theatrical works drawn from the creation story (notably the first act of "The Apple Tree," based on Mark Twain's "The Diaries of Adam and Eve"), this piece takes a lighthearted approach. There are wit and innocence, likeable characters, and an overall optimistic philosophy. The play contrasts the legacy of Kane--hatred, judgment and separation--with the legacy of Habil -- compassion, forgiveness and one-ness. The latter is submitted as the path to free humanity from its guilt and aggression, enabling it instead to love. Playwright Serge Ernandez explains, "It is a comedy where we laugh often and easily, as we must laugh at ourselves from time to time and self-reflect so we can evolve."

Disney's The Little Mermaid - Smithtown Center for the Performing Arts

The show is followed with a meet and greet with the cast where you can recieve autographs and take photos at no additional charge.

Bound Unbound: Lin Tianmiao - Asia Society and Museum
Through January 27, 2013 - New York

One of Lin Tianmiao's clearest recollections of her childhood in China was helping her mother sew clothes for the family. When she returned to China after spending eight years living in New York, she was inspired by this memory to create a technique she calls thread winding, where she winds silk or cotton thread around an object until it is completely covered and ultimately transformed. She used this in one of her first major works called The Proliferation of Thread Winding in 1995, which began her career as an artist and is included in the exhibition. Her use of the technique continues today and can be seen in such recent works as All the Same.

Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters - Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 27, 2013 - New York

This exhibition tells how a largely self-taught artist and writer used a series of private letters to develop some of the most vividly depicted animal characters in all of children's literature. Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters brings together for the first time twenty-two letters from important American private holdings as well as from three major institutional collections: the Morgan, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton University. Illustrated with pen-drawn vignettes, the letters are displayed with more than eighty related items, including printed books, original artwork, manuscripts, and early children's toys and games inspired by Potter's stories.

Born Out of Necessity - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - Midtown

Showcasing objects that adhere to the traditional view of design as a tool for problem-solving, Born out of Necessity offers close examination of the problems themselves -- whether urgent, foreseen, or imagined. From objects that respond to pressing needs in developing countries to new solutions that are tailored to the urban environment, the exhibition examines how design intervenes across a range of experiences, including medical emergencies and natural disasters. Other objects demonstrate how products created to address specific challenges for people with disabilities can provide solutions that improve everyone's life. Drawing on the narrative power of design, Born out of Necessity addresses a host of complex cultural developments, such as the need to incorporate environmental responsibility in everyday life, our attempts to marry ancient religious beliefs with contemporary mores, and the desire to anticipate and prevent technological and ecological quagmires.

Eyes Closed/Eyes Open: Recent Acquisitions in Drawings - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - New York

This exhibition is culled from the past two years of acquisitions by MoMA's Department of Drawings. Anchored in various explorations of the late 1960s, these works reveal a range of creative, intellectual, and critical impulses -- whether serving as an intimate record of the artist's practice, or purposefully crafted to address an assumed wider audience. German artist Franz Erhard Walther created a suite of "work drawings" to illustrate (both functionally and conceptually) his First Work Series (1963-69), a group of 58 interactive sculptural objects, on display at the Museum for the first time since their original presentation here in 1969. While roughly contemporary, Willem de Kooning's "Eyes-Closed" drawings of 1966, which were sketched blindly by the artist, offer a counterpoint to Walther's project and seem to embrace the traditional role of drawing as a tool of private expression, while Martha Rosler's Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful photomontage series of 1967-72 turns a critical eye to the era's sociopolitical context and expanding media sphere.
