Stage Door: Finding Neverland, The Belle of Belfast

Fern Siegel | April 24, 2015 | Arts
Neverland is a traditional musical blessed with moments of magic. That's thanks to Morrison, who, as the imaginative Mr. Barrie, carries the show from start to finish. (And who counts numerous Glee fans in the audience.)

Stuck Outside the Poor Door

Marian Wright Edelman | April 24, 2015 | Politics
The contrast between the haves and have-nots might be especially stark at that New York building, but millions of families across the country are finding themselves on the wrong side of the poor door.

It's All About All'onda

Gary Villablanca Duff | April 24, 2015 | Taste
Qhen I dropped by All'onda for a friend's birthday party, I was expecting the place to be full, not packed to the brim.

Met Opera: Verdi's 'Ballo In Maschera' Beautifully Sung And Played

Wilborn Hampton | April 24, 2015 | Arts
The principals for this season's Ballo are the same that sang the premiere of the current production in 2012 with one main exception -- Beczala taking over the role of King Gustavo III of Sweden. And with Levine now conducting the always splendid Met Orchestra, the evening is a musical joy.

Living on Love: Power Couple

Danny Groner | April 24, 2015 | Arts
The absurdity inside many of Broadway comedies, a world where anything can happen, comes through in full force this season in the new Living on Love, playing at the Longacre Theater. As opera star Raquel De Angelis, Renée Fleming belts it out while letting it all hang out as a...

Regina Weinreich | April 24, 2015 | New York
In this comedy about a wedding, It Shoulda Been You, the "you" is a young man, the former boyfriend of the bride-to-be, played with gusto by Josh Grisetti in his Broadway debut at the Brooks Atkinson Theater.

First Nighter: Lisa D'Amour's 'Airline Highway' Traffic Jam

David Finkle | April 24, 2015 | Arts
Everybody knows about gang comedies, most often as television series. Something less talked about, if ever talked about, are gang tragedies -- or let's say, gang dramas. They exist as well, often as plays.

Theater: Not So 'Fun Home;' Dying With 'Living On Love'

Michael Giltz | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
It's no fun not quite getting the rapture of others; who wants to miss out on a show everyone else is loving? So I was ready and eager to see it again at Circle In The Square. Maybe it would grow on me.

The Real Hillary... Really!

Jill Iscol | April 24, 2015 | Politics
For those of us who have had the opportunity to spend time with Hillary Clinton behind the scenes, away from the cameras, it's time to rally against those who want to create an image of her that suits their agenda and not the real woman.

'The Wannabe': Nick Sandow's Farewell to Old New York

Camila Gibran | April 23, 2015 | Arts
"I always felt like Thomas, I always felt like I was on the periphery of all that stuff, and this desire of a wannabe, well, I am an actor, I spent the last 25 years pretending to be somebody else."

All About That Bar: Bemelmans Hosts Kate Davis

Roxane Assaf | April 23, 2015 | Arts
The celebrity boîte in the Hotel Carlyle enshrining today's only public mural art of Ludwig Bemelmans is a fitting incubator for the blossoming musical talents of multi-instrumentalist/singer Kate Davis.

Living the American DREAM: Joel Sati

National Council of La Raza | April 23, 2015 | Latino Voices
If there is something more impressive than Joel's academic résumé, it's his story. Rewind a few years and we'd be meeting a different Joel: a high-school student reeling from the discovery of his undocumented status just a few weeks shy of graduation. Facing a new set of financial roadblocks, he would no longer be a college-bound senior but one facing a life of uncertainty.

Unless you are planning a trip to Ukraine, this exhibition, on view through September 13, might be your only chance to see these paintings en masse and outside of their homeland.

A Poetic Celebration of Shakespeare on His Birthday

The New York Public Library | April 23, 2015 | New York
Aristotle wrote that poetry and music are essential elements of theatre, and I agree.

The Manhattan Subway Rent Map: Where You Can't Afford to Live, By Stop

Thrillist | April 23, 2015 | New York
Whether you want to be closer to work, or closer to awesome dim sum, finding a more convenient (but still affordable... please?) place to live is something pretty much every New Yorker considers at some point. Well, this should help you do exactly that.

New French Films Tackle Barbarism

Annette Insdorf | April 23, 2015 | Entertainment
It seems more than coincidental that two powerful French films opening Friday deal with anti-Semitism, albeit in radically different ways. 24 Days dramatizes the 2006 kidnapping of a young Jewish man in Paris; Because I Was a Painter is a documentary about art created by inmates of Nazi camps.

How the War on Drugs Contributes to the '1.5 Million Missing Black Men'

Tony Newman | April 22, 2015 | Politics
On Monday, the New York Times published a deeply upsetting piece titled, "1.5 Million Missing Black Men." The numbers are shocking and offensive.

Why Nobody Under 25 Can Truly Afford to Live in N.Y.C.

Jessica Kline | April 22, 2015 | New York
Our grandparents are so concerned we won't have a savings account, but how could we possibly when we may only be able to put away $1,000 a year? So yes, I left New York City really pissed off.
