A theater company most terrible is about to stage a murder most foul … no good can come of this. Actually, these wannabe thespians will be lucky to make it through opening night without some real corpses stacking up, because this is The Play That Goes Wrong. And boy, does it. But what’s a chaotic series of mishaps for them makes for “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post) and proof that sometimes a show can be so wrong, it’s right. Broadway’s most award-winningest comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has racked up more laurels than Caesar, conquering stages from Paris to London to Broadway, and now it’s returning to wreak hilarious havoc on New World Stages. See for yourself why Forbes said, “You’ll never have a better time in a theater!”

Written by Isaac Gomez (Steppenwolf’s La Ruta) based on his intimate interviews, the way she spoke is a raw and riveting exploration of responsibility, and follows one playwright’s journey to give voice to a city of women silenced by violence, fear and a world that has turned a deaf ear to their stories. Directed by Obie and Lucille Lortel winner Jo Bonney and produced by Audible Theater (Billy Crudup in Harry Clarke, Carey Mulligan in Girls & Boys).

Relive the past on this exciting three-hour guided walking tour during which your guide will help make the past come alive. In 1920, the United States enacted the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, banning liquor production, public consumption and the selling of any alcoholic products. This catapulted the criminal world and helped the mob monopolize and grow their illegal business of alcohol production. Some of the most vicious gangsters gained fortune and fame. Illegal bars known as speakeasies opened all over the country and served bootleg liquor to the thirsty public. As Al Capone said, “All I do is supply a public demand.” You’ll start your tour at Petrosino Square and walk in the footsteps of the gangsters and visit some of the watering holes that served illegal liquor during Prohibition. At each of the three to four stops you can (legally) sip a craft cocktail, beer or wine or even a shot available for purchase and served by the top bartenders in New York. While sipping on your now “legal” alcoholic beverage you’ll hear stories of the Mafia and how it infiltrated society. By the end of the tour you will be a “wiseguy” about Prohibition and the mob.

B3 great Reuben Wilson comes to Jazz Forum leading a soulful organ trio. Wilson, who recorded a series of soul-jazz and funk recordings in the 1960s and 70s for Blue Note Records and others, was, in the 1980s, rediscovered, championed and sampled by artists like Guru, Us3, A Tribe Called Quest, and Nas among others. His biggest hit was 1975’s “Gotta Get Your Own.” Rediscovered by a new generation, his music became a cornerstone of the acid jazz movement breathing new life into this important artist and he hasn’t slowed down since. Get ready to get your groove on with this master of the Hammond B3 organ. See Reuben Wilson play at the Jazz Forum in Tarrytown, NY.

Jazz-influenced French indie singer/songwriter Violette comes to Club Bonafide in New York City. Born in Paris and raised in a small village on an island off the French Atlantic Coast, and now making her home in Brooklyn, Violette has clearly been influenced by such French luminaries as Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, but Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson have also had a hand in the development of her sophisticated pop sound. Her 2014 album, Falling Strong, showcases a collection of originals that, although rooted in jazz, reflect the young artist’s eclectic range of influences, from pop to rock and R&B. Upbeat and sassy, sensual and intimate, her soulful voice immerses you in emotion. See her live at Club Bonafide in New York City.

The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever. First produced in 1959 and adapted two years later into a now-classic film starring Sidney Poitier, A Raisin in the Sun is as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the limited return of this incredible story to their stage — a story that follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a “white” neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers’ many dreams.

A wise man once said that a prophet is never honored in his own country. And so it has been with Capleton. While the veteran DJ’s words and works long ago earned him the title of “The Prophet,” the respect and honor that should rightfully be his have been a long time coming. In the fast-moving world of dancehall reggae, fame and success are hard to obtain and easy to lose. Fans can be fickle, and trends change in the blink of an eye, leaving most entertainers with painfully short career spans. Only a rare few can remain relevant from year to year, holding their audience’s attention and leaving them crying for more. His lyrics are deep, precise, and thoughtful. His stage shows are nothing less than dynamic, explosive performances. But his remarkable staying power and longevity may be Capleton’s greatest gift. Capleton is now at the height of his powers.

Lying. Cheating. Crying. Who says romance is dead? In this vibrant, witty drama, a long-married lesbian couple, Penny and Katherine, suffer from a gradual breakdown of their relationship. When Penny discovers Katherine’s infidelity — with a man, no less — the couple seeks marital counseling. Deeply felt emotions force them to reevaluate their lives and their lifestyles. Tension develops as the two stake out their individual territories, allowing for a peek into their sometimes neurotic, often complicated, and always quirky partnership. The tension between the human desire to settle down in a heteronormative lifestyle is contrasted by the excitement of one defined by sex with other people. Can a relationship plagued by lies, deceit and unfaithfulness be saved by true affection? Can these two set aside past hurts and focus instead on their mutual love for each other? Through this portrait of a lesbian relationship, the question is raised: When it comes to love, don’t we all want the same things?

During its pre-WWI heyday the Village was a magnet for feminists, and it continued to be home to women artists and entrepreneurs throughout the 20th century while also cultivating a thriving lesbian and trans community. This tour explores sites associated with some of the many fascinating women in the neighborhood, some of whom have been largely forgotten but no less played a vital role in creating the legacy of feminism we continue today.

Join a pub crawl at the Crossworlds of the World and learn about Prohibition and its effects on world-famous Times Square. In 1910s, Times Square was the new entertainment center of New York. The legitimate theater industry was moving in. Fancy restaurants called lobster palaces were in vogue. Illegal casinos would be opening up. Prostitution would spill north from the Tenderloin district. And then the most dramatic change would occur — Prohibition. On this three-hour pub crawl, see the locations of where New York’s underworld held court during the Great Experiment. Visit a hotel dubbed the Country Club of 42nd Street that closed due to Prohibition. Gain entrance to a speakeasy on the famous Club Row. Drink where the Broadway stars and fans had dined for a generation. Hit a swanky bar located in a famous Art Deco hotel. Step into a famous deli where a visionary gangster funded the vice that made Times Square the epicenter of 1920s New York Jazz Age. All this and more on this boozy pub crawl at the Crossroads of the World.

Prohibition was a unique period of time in American history. Perhaps nowhere in New York City was this more demonstrated than in the pre-dominantly Irish neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. On this three-hour pub crawl, we will stop at three bars that were once speakeasies in Hell’s Kitchen for drinks. Having the benefit of being next to the Hudson River, many of the early successful bootleggers in New York City were Hell’s Kitchen residents at some point in their lives either in their formative years or as adults. They would utilize the coming and goings of ships on the Hudson River, called rum runners, to receive illicit alcohol. We will learn about who many of these early bootleggers were, their schemes and the organization they belonged to dedicated to trafficking in the shipped alcohol. We will also learn of the rebels amongst these scofflaws — those independent-minded gangsters who often didn’t play by underworld’s rules and the consequences of their actions. Further, we will see how Prohibition ended and how the gangsters ended—either their lives or their careers as bootleggers.
