'Around the World in 80 Days' - The New Victory Theater
Through May 19, 2019 - Midtown

The clock is ticking! With a fortune at stake, Phileas Fogg and his silly sidekick, Passepartout, must abandon the misty streets of Victorian London and circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days, or lose everything. Get swept up in the adventure as they race across Asia on the back of an elephant, speed by steamer ship over the stormy Pacific, and ride the railroad through the American Wild West. Adapted by Laura Eason from Jules Verne's classic novel, this fast-paced, globe-trotting theatrical romp is jam-packed with slapstick hilarity and comic book-style action scenes. Hurry, there's no time to waste!

Rhymes With Opera presents the World Premiere of 'The Impossible She' - 124 Bank Street Theatre
Through May 18, 2019 - West Village

The Impossible She dramatizes the relationship between two women who found each other amidst a complicated world — a world where men in positions of power have told them, in one way or another, that their minds and bodies have little value. One of these women is Eleanor Roosevelt, who is about to become the First Lady of the United States. The other is Lorena Hickok (or Hick, as everyone calls her), a feisty journalist assigned to introduce Eleanor Roosevelt to the world. Fantastically told through metaphysical poetry, fragments of newspaper accounts, intimate letters, and Depression-era ballads, the opera retells these women's stories as a classic love triangle between Eleanor, Hick, and a composite character known simply as The Outside World. Ultimately, the love that Eleanor and Hick share for this Outside World — an especially troubled world that desperately needs them — threatens to pull the two apart.

The Impossible She features RWO founding ensemble members Elisabeth Halliday, Bonnie Lander, and Robert Maril. Stage director Laine Rettmer and scenic designer Andrea Merkx (who both helped create RWO's 10th anniversary production Rumpelstiltskin) return to create this new production for the company along with conductor George Lam. The performance will also feature a special world premiere performance of Colin Read's concert work On Loneliness and Solitude, written specifically for RWO's ensemble singers.

Rhymes With Opera is a New York-based ensemble of performers and composers that expands the repertory of contemporary opera by commissioning, developing and staging new chamber works. Founded in 2007, Rhymes With Opera includes founding company members Ruby Fulton (composer); Elisabeth Halliday (soprano); George Lam (composer); Bonnie Lander (soprano); and Robert Maril (baritone). During the 2012-2013 season, Rhymes With Opera expanded to include a house band, the Rhymes With Orchestra, a chamber ensemble comprised of some of this generation's most exciting contemporary instrumentalists. With the addition of the RWOrchestra, RWO has become a self-contained contemporary opera machine, commissioning and producing works that can be performed whole-cloth by the company. Since 2007, RWO has commissioned more than 17 new operas, ranging from one-minute "signature" pieces to evening-length productions. New operas commissioned and produced by RWO include Travis Sullivan's Three Modern Pieces, Thomas Limbert's Numbers / Dates, Jenny Olivia Johnson's Book of Gazes, Kathleen Bader's Leads, Douglas Buchanan's Goblin Market, David Smooke's Criminal Element, Adam Matlock's Red Giant, and Erik Spangler's Cantata For A Loop Trail, an outdoor hiking opera set in Gwynn Falls Leakin Park in Baltimore and Inwood Hill Park in New York City.

T. rex: The Ultimate Predator - The American Museum of Natural History
Through May 31, 2019 - Upper West Side

From fluffy hatchling to massive killing machine, AMNH's new exhibition explores the life history, remarkable abilities, and ancient relatives of tyrannosaurus rex.

The full tyrannosaur story includes dozens of different species and spans over 100 million years of evolution, with T. rex appearing only at the very end of that period. Most tyrannosaurs were not giants like T. rex, which, fully grown, weighed between 6 and 9 tons. Early species were small and fast, likely avoiding confrontations with larger dinosaurs.

So how did mega-predators like T. rex evolve from such humble origins? How did T. rex grow so quickly in adolescence, ballooning from the size of a chicken to the size of a truck in just 21 years, gaining up to 4.6 pounds per day? And what kind of super sensory skills and traits did it use to become such an efficient killer?

T. rex: The Ultimate Predator addresses these questions and more with life-sized reconstructions of tyrannosaurs at various life stages, real fossils and casts, large-scale video projections, hands-on interactives, and an exhilarating virtual reality experience that lets visitors work in a group to assemble a T. rex skeleton.

  • Visitors encounter a massive life-sized model of a T. rex with patches of feathers—which, as scientists now know, were likely present on nearly all non-avian dinosaurs (all dinosaurs other than birds)—as well as reconstructions of a fluffy, helpless T. rex hatchling and a four-year-old juvenile T. rex;
  • a “roar mixer” where visitors can imagine what T. rex might have sounded like by blending sounds from other animals;
  • a shadow theater where a floor projection of an adult T. rex skeleton comes to life;
  • a magnetic wall where visitors are tasked with placing various tyrannosaur family members in the correct time period;
  • a life-sized animation of T.rex in the Cretaceous and real data from fossil specimens, CT scans, and microscope images at a tabletop Investigation Station.

In collaboration with HTC VIVE, the Museum also presents V. rex (working title), its first interactive, multi-player virtual reality experience. Visitors team up to build a T. rex skeleton bone by bone and then watch as it comes to life in what is now Montana, as it was 66 million years ago.
