It is hard to keep up with all the wonderful cultural offerings in New York City, but here are a few picks we find interesting right now:
The Last Ship, the new musical by Sting, is in previews at the Neil Simon Theater. Discount tickets are now available on TDF ($45) and other discount sites. The early word from people who have already seen it is good.
Love Letters with Brian Dennehy and Carol Burnett opened at the Brooks Atkinson on 10/16. Discount tickets are available (TDF at $39)
Delicate Balance with Glenn Close and John Lithgow is starting previews at the Golden Theater on October 20. Keep your eyes out for discount tickets.
Country House with Blythe Danner at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater. Discount tickets are widely available to this comedy about theater and family relationships.
Lennon:Through Glass Onion at the Union Square Theater. TDF tickets $30.
We were tipped off to this musical event “celebrating the genius, mystery and phenomenon of John Lennon” by a knowledgeable theater hound friend.
“…part bio, part great concert, totally excellent.” – The Sunday Telegraph, Sydney
Egon Schiele Portraits, now open at the Neue Gallerie. Tickets are $20, seniors $10. Free admission 6-8 pm on first Friday each month.
Make it an afternoon in Old Vienna and end your visit at the museum’s Café Sabarsky with a Wiener Mélange and a piece of Sachertorte mit Schlag. The café is a bit pricy, but a lot cheaper than a Delta ticket to Austria!
Get into Halloween spirit at the Metropolitan Museum. Start the evening, Friday October 31, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Met, for a gallery talk and viewing of “Death Becomes Her”, the new costume exhibition of mourning attire. Free with museum admission.
