Actress Rachel Resheff is, um, amazing. That's the word fits the bill! She already has five Broadway shows under her belt and will now be performing at 54 Below in NYC. For you Orange is the New Black fans, you will recognize Rachel as young Alex Vause!
Ever have a friend who fits so many things into one day that it's impossible to understand where they find the time for everything? Well, that's actress Rachel Resheff. I can't even imagine how she found the time for this interview!

Juvenile In Justice,
If someone told me that I would have a reason to bring up the names of Pope Francis and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in the same sentence, I would have highly doubted it. But, here it is.

It Shoulda Been You,
The Manly Art Of Seduction,
The Manly Pursuit Of Desire And Love,
It Shoulda Been You, the musical now playing for a limited time at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on W. 47th Street, is about one of the most anxiety-producing collisions in human life.

Of all the many trapeze artists I've had the pleasure to present, not a single one ever considered such a career in flight as a plan B or something to hold them over until their real dream kicked in. The trapeze is either for you or it is not.
There is no doubt we have come a long way in shifting our national, collective consciousness around this issue. But is the national conversation regarding criminal justice reform moving in the right direction?
Unlimited is Art Basel's exhibition platform for projects that transcend the limitations of a classical art-show stand. The sector includes out-sized sculpture and paintings, video projections, large-scale installations, and live performances.
Remember fallout shelters and hiding under a desk in elementary school during an air raid drill? There's always a cloud hanging over human life.
The Walking Dead,
Where does our cultural conjoining of sleep and death come from, and how has the entanglement of the two concepts persisted throughout time in our major artistic and historic works?
Fakhri el Ghezal tracks through photography the repeated absences and missing continuities of political leaders ripped away posters and billboards during the last half century since Tunisia freed itself from the French heel.
Shawky's films may be about the numbing terror and depraved inhumanity of the medieval Crusaders and Jihadis, but the human players and objectives are virtually the same today. Through the transparent veneer of temporal, regional, ideological correspondenc
What does it say that those taking on gender politics believe the way for women to rise is to literally remove men from the equation? Do we, as strong, female artists, really believe it's necessary to excise men in order for fairness to reign? It seems many do. But I have a slight problem with that.

Michael Lee Nirenberg,

Paintings have always been a backdrop in Gregg Chadwick's life. Much like a cinematographer shapes a film with beautiful images, Chadwick creates his own stories via his art with iconic themes and striking figures with subtle subtext.
New York Adorned,
A few weeks ago, a blogger was looking to get her daughter's name tattooed on her neck. After explaining to her that we do not tattoo the necks, hands or faces of people who are not heavily tattooed otherwise, she left very upset, questioning our right to tell her what to do with her body.

On the heels of Art Basel, we sat down for a Q&A with Tatyana Franck, the newly appointed director of Lausanne's photography museum, the Musée de l'Élysée. A dynamic, multi-cultural leader, she arrived at the museum after serving as the Director of the Archives Claude Picasso.
I always like going to the Flea Theater, since they bring to fruition off beat, experimental and genius pieces such as Samuel Beckett's Happy Days, directed by Andrei Belgrader and playing now to packed audiences with Brooke Adams and Tony Shalhoub.
These are the words written on the artwork Birds (2012) by Tracey Emin, which was hung up in the corridor leading to the Rosemary Murray Library just before the beginning of the infamous Easter term, also known as exam term.
