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.)

Nyc Poor Door,
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.

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.
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.
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.

"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."

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.
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.
Aristotle wrote that poetry and music are essential elements of theatre, and I agree.

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.
There is no way to eat eggs this good, this quickly, and with this few ingredients.
As Seen Through These Eyes,
Because I Was a Painter,
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.
On Monday, the New York Times published a deeply upsetting piece titled, "1.5 Million Missing Black Men." The numbers are shocking and offensive.
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.
