Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. It's no surprise that Beautiful -- The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. See this unforgettable show at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.

When it comes to celebrating the beauty of nature in painting, the name that immediately springs to mind is Georgia O'Keeffe. From her desert vistas to her close-up, sensuous abstractions of flowers, The Mother of American Modernism's work realigns the viewer's perception to recognize the wonder of the natural world all around us.

Now you can enjoy the little-known paintings from this trip complemented with lush Hawaiian flora in the The New York Botanical Garden's Conservatory. Come immerse yourself in beauty.

The fact that Oscar Wilde, the genius behind The Importance of Being Earnest and other oh-so-grown-up stage comedies, also wrote for children often comes as a surprise. That his fairy tales are enchanting and very, very funny is no surprise at all. Indeed, "Oscar Wilde" himself comes out to introduce his tale, The Selfish Giant, now at the Players Theatre. Told through dance, puppetry, music and skilled storytelling, The Selfish Giant is an intriguing fable about a greedy giant who learns that his most prized possessions are worthless unless they're shared. Come early for an interactive arts workshop before the show. There you can meet key members of the play's creative team and make an art project that will be used in the performance ... and then can be taken home as a special souvenir.

Jay Leonhart has been recognized as a very accomplished bass player for a long time now. He has been named the Outstanding Bassist In the Recording Industry three times and is always mentioned when the discussion turns to the outstanding.

In the Streicker Center courtroom, no one is above the law -- not king nor prophet, matriarch nor patriarch. You are hereby subpoenaed to serve on the jury for case #5779: The People vs. Noah. Abraham protested when God threatened to destroy Sodom, and Moses objected when God threatened to harm the Israelites. Yet, when God declared his intention to wipe out humanity in a great flood, Noah stayed silent, neither arguing with God nor warning his neighbors. When God told him to construct an ark and board it with his family and seven pairs of clean creatures, he simply obeyed. As a pious man, who was he to question God's explicit orders? Temple Emanu-El's (faux) proceedings will begin with a review of the facts of the case by Rabbi Norman, J. Cohen, PH.D. You will then enter the "courtroom," where Joe Lieberman and Alan Dershowitz will serve, respectively, as defense counsel and prosecutor. Presiding over the trial will be the the Honorable Michael Mukasey, former Attorney General of the United States and U.S. District judge, who will instruct you, the jury, on what you may and may not consider before you vote on Noah's guilt or innocence.

When “Soul Brother Number One” James Brown released “Say It Loud -- I’m Black and I’m Proud” in the summer of 1968, it became the theme song for an entire movement.

Now he comes to Tarrytown Music Hall for an off-the-cuff, anything-goes evening of laughs.

Boasting sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a show biz story that packs a powerful punch, Chicago tells the tale of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who'll stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn, played by Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (from October 6 through November 18). During the showy decadence of the 1920s, their malicious crimes turn them into media darlings, producing a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which could just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. A smash on Broadway (winning six Tony Awards) and on the big screen (winning six Academy Awards), this biting satire features the unforgettable songs of Kander and Ebb, including "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango" and many more hits. Enjoy this musical trip back to a time when a little razzle-dazzle made everything just fine in this dazzling production at the Ambassador Theatre in the heart of Broadway.

A heart-breaking triangle, a heart-racing chase -- a mystery unsolved for centuries. This is the legend of Sleepy Hollow, returning to New York's Players Theatre for the fourth year. In this musical production, careless lovers taunt a fragile man with a treacherous dance that spins out of control. It's a macabre musical take on the Halloween classic.
