AIDs cases pile up but POTUS40 says nothing. After three Ebola patients in Dallas, POTUS44 sends 4000 troops/medical personnel to West Africa, creates CDC SWAT teams, appoints Czar -- NOT ENOUGH says GOP! Ebola Derangement Syndrome?
Director Laura Poitras, like reporter Glenn Greenwald, is now known almost as widely as Edward Snowden himself, for helping facilitate his entry into the world. Her new film takes you back to June 2013 and locks you in that Hong Kong hotel room. It's a riveting, surprisingly unclaustrophic, and unforgettable experience.
With continued officer-involved shootings, attempts at voter suppression, and ongoing racial and economic disparities, it is easy to push voting to the side. But it is precisely because of tragedies like the deaths of young Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in Staten Island, and because of an unequal educational and employment system, that we need to show up at the polls.
Is this the best fall theater season in years? I think so. While I don't do reviews really, I felt the need to discuss this amazing season we're having. It would kick last season's butt in almost any competition.
The claims coming from the mouths of our elected representatives showcase an incredibly wide array of pseudo-scientific criticism directed at the contemporary understanding of climate change.
The CDC isn't infallible, but they don't pull numbers out of the air, either; they're scientists, and their guidelines come from evidence.
Could charter school dollars pouring into the Governor's reelection campaign at the same time that new charter agreements are approved by the New York State really be "Quid Pro Cuomo"? It is probably just a coincidence, but readers and voters have to decide for themselves.
I approached Homoground founder Lynn Casper over the summer to help fill the gap in what I saw was a lack of LGBTQ representation in what's always been such a great week to check out new artists.
It has been a whirlwind year for Royal Blood. The Brighton, England, band formed last year and since the duo came together, everything has clicked for them. Before they even released their first single in 2013, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders wore the band's shirt on stage during his band's headlining slot at Glastonbury.
We have a lot of fun watching these couples flirt, banter and reconcile, yet there's an absence of true emotion that left me feeling lighter than I should have in a play about jealousy, knowledge and the preservation of one's self in a marriage.
Forcing voters to use photo ID and perpetuating the myth of rampant voter fraud is nothing more than a strategy to keep growing minority communities on the sidelines. And unfortunately, it works.
If the highest quality arts are to be accessible to everyone, after all, some of these regional differences must be eliminated in the coming years.
That could be why Aspen Santa Fe Ballet -- which runs this week at The Joyce -- has developed such a solid fan base among Big Apple balletomanes.
Only occasionally does Engstrom include one of Parker's economic poems. She leaves out the one about men not making passes at girls who wear glasses and the suicidal one with the conclusion that you might as well live.
Saying the unsayable in his wickedly funny, well-observed folk songs, Wainwright is profane, smart, poking received wisdom in the eye and then grabbing your heart with a tender and devastating truth about life and love, mistakes and mystery.
New York City faces a persistent conundrum: How can the city help homeless families out of shelters and into secure, stable housing--and prevent their return to the shelter system?
We must do more than just call Walmart out for their truly shameful practices. Without unions or government rules, companies like Walmart will never do the right thing.
Leave it to Neal Goren. He's cherry-picked Bohuslav Martinu's comic one-acts Alexandre Bis and Comedy on the Bridge as the first of the Gotham Opera Company's 2014-15 season, and he's owed three or more cheers for doing so.
