FRANKIE VALLI @ NEW JERSEY PERFORMING ARTS

Frankie Valli




Newark, New Jersey - New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Spend an evening with American pop icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Frankie Valli when he brings an evening of his classic hits: “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Rag Doll,” “My Eyes Adored You,” and many more.



Oh, what a story. Frankie Valli, a Newarker who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, their classic songs are all the rage all over again.



But please don’t say that Frankie is back. The truth is, he never went away. Sure, the majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing and Mrs. Doubtfire. As many as 200 artists have done cover versions of Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” from Nancy Wilson’s jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill’s hip-hop makeover.



Throughout his incredible career, Valli has sold well over 100 million records worldwide. One of the most distinctive voices in all of American music, his dazzling falsetto has become the stuff of rock’n’roll legend. For over five decades now, Valli and his group have been a top concert draw on stages coast-to-coast and around the world, thanks to the constant radio circulation of his songs as well as new re-mixes that find their way onto today’s charts.



“Frankie Valli's voice is a thing of wonder,” The Evening Standard wrote in a 2017 concert review. “… Every high note – and there are many – is hit with laser-guided precision. Oh, what a night, indeed!” Tickets to see Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are Tickets on sale Friday, November 17, 2017 at 10 AM at NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.

Jones; film director, producer, writer and actor Spike Lee; and multi-award-winning actress Rita Moreno. As leaders in their respective fields, these five luminaries were selected because of their exemplary achievement in politics and diplomacy, the arts, science, entertainment and advocacy.



Honorees will be presented with the Portrait of a Nation Prize during a seated dinner in the museum’s Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard, a signature element of the renovated National Historic Landmark Building shared by the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

The evening will culminate with a musical performance by four-time Grammy Award-winning artist Esperanza Spalding.



“This year’s honorees represent America’s accomplished experts on the forefront of their diverse fields,” said Kim Sajet, director of the Portrait Gallery. “It is an honor to host such extraordinary individuals and to further our mission of building the museum’s collection to reflect our society’s change makers, artists and leaders through portraiture.”



The goal of the American Portrait Gala is to raise $1 million to strengthen the museum’s endowment for exhibitions, which supports compelling exhibitions that tell the dynamic and multifaceted story of America. The event’s co-chairs are H.E. Martin Dahinden, Ambassador of Switzerland to the United States, and Mrs. Anita Dahinden; Robert and Arlene Kogod; and David and Alice Rubenstein. The vice chairs are Mr. and Mrs. Michael H. Podell; Mr. Joseph P. Ujobai; Mr. Eduardo Ardiles and Netflix. The gala’s program chairs are Mr. Tommie L. Pegues and Mr. Donald A. Capoccia.

KELSEA BALLERINI'S NEW ALBUM 'UNAPOLOGETICALLY'

KELSEA BALLERINI




Nashville, Tenn. – The wait is officially over as Black River Entertainment recording artist KELSEA BALLERINI’s much-anticipated sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, is available everywhere today.



“’UNAPOLOGETICALLY’ means leading with your heart, trusting it, following it and not letting other people’s opinions sway it,” Ballerini reveals. “From heartbreak to finding the love of my life and embracing the ‘in between’ – this album is all in order, just like it happened. Loss, life, love… this is my story, unapologetically.”



Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey – in addition to Shane McAnally, Lindsay Rimes, and Jimmy Robbins on select tracks – UNAPOLOGETICALLY spotlights 12 tunes written or co-written by Ballerini. Penned with “blood, sweat, and heartbeats,” the striking successor to her critically acclaimed, GOLD-certified THE FIRST TIME, exposes the intimate journey of loss, life, and love that the Country star has experienced since her history-making debut album.



"These are exciting days for Kelsea and Black River,” said Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment. “With the success of her first album; including three number one songs and a Top 3 single, we are extremely grateful to the outstanding radio promotion staff at Black River and all the people who came alongside Kelsea to make history with her first album. As we launch Kelsea's second album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, we look forward to continuing this journey alongside Kelsea and the wonderful people that day in and day out, tirelessly work to advance this great artist’s music."



Early reviews have critics applauding Ballerini’s fearless evolution as both an artist and songwriter alike:



“Her voice is winningly sweet, and also durably strong — it suggests a carefully withheld tenderness. And she is an elegant songwriter…”
– The New York Times

THE MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB PRESENTS 'ACTUALLY'


Actually




Manhattan Theatre Club’s New York premiere of Actually, the new play by Anna Ziegler (The Last Match, Photograph 51), directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz (Pipeline) and presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival, Mandy Greenfield, Artistic Director, began performances yesterday – Tuesday, October 31 – at The Studio at Stage II – The Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series.

Joshua Boone (Holler If Ya Hear Me, Mother Courage & Her Children at CSC, Fan Girl) and Alexandra Socha (Amazon’s “Red Oaks”, Fun Home, Spring Awakening) will reprise their roles from the play’s acclaimed Williamstown production this past summer.



At a raucous party during their freshman year at Princeton, Tom (Joshua Boone) and Amber (Alexandra Socha) connect in ways that seem innocent enough at first. But as things progress, they find themselves in murky territory, with ramifications that could affect the rest of their lives. What actually happened between them? Tackling the highly charged topic of sexual consent, this hit production direct from Williamstown Theatre Festival explores the intersection of gender and race on campus today, offering “a portrait of a generation” (The Boston Globe). This deeply felt, funny and thought-provoking play comes from fast-rising playwright Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51) and is directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz (Pipeline).



The co-world premiere of Actually was produced by Geffen Playhouse and Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2017.

"Isaac Mizrahi...(is) a natural story teller with musical instincts and vivacious wit." -The New York Times



ABOUT PETER & THE WOLF



In 1936, Sergei Prokofiev was commissioned to write a light-hearted piece for children that would introduce the instruments and sounds of the orchestra. He was given a libretto, but he didn't like it, so he came up with a new story. The music was completed in a week. Peter & the Wolf was the result, and it is a work still loved by children and adults. The story tells how Peter, against his grandfather's will, opens the park gate, ventures into the big green meadow, and ultimately manages to liberate the City from the scary wolf. Peter captures the wolf with the help of a bird, his friend, and hands him over to the hunter, with a specific request: to take the wolf to the zoo. Each character in the story is represented by an instrument. The narrator reads the story between the musical sections.

Tavis Smiley




Newark, New Jersey – New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Tavis Smiley. Best-selling author and television host Tavis Smiley presents this live, multi-media presentation of his New York Times bestseller, Death of A King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year. Death of a King will take place on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7:30PM at Prudential Hall and will reveal a side of the iconic civil rights leader you’ve never known before. With Smiley serving as narrator and original compositions performed live by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, this joyful tribute will tell the little-known story of King’s final year. Against all odds and with his popularity in decline, King had to summon the courage, conviction, and character to bring a message of peace, equality, and justice to a divided nation. Death of a King examines the impact that one man’s integrity and faith in humanity can have on the American people, and people across the globe.



Tickets for this special presentation go on-sale Friday, November 3, 2017 at 10AM and can be reserved at NJPAC.org or 888.Go.NJPAC.



Smiley is the host of the PBS series Tavis Smiley (currently in its 14thseason) as well as The Tavis Smiley Show on Public Radio International. He is the author or co-author of 21 books, and his non-profit Tavis Smiley Foundation is now in the midst of a $3 million, four-year campaign called “Ending Poverty: America’s Silent Spaces,” to help focus on alleviating endemic poverty in America. TIME magazine recently named Smiley one of “The World’s 100 Most Influential People.”



Marcus Roberts is an accomplished jazz musician and composer who has received commissioning awards from Jazz at Lincoln Center, Chamber Music America, ASCAP, and the Helen Keller Award for Personal Achievement. “Roberts has a combination of talent, ambition, discipline, stylistic openness and resourcefulness that suggests he is a remarkable musician – perhaps even a phenomenon,” says JazzTimes.

'THE NUTCRACKER' CLASSIC @ FLORENCE GOULD HALL

THE NUTCRACKER




New York Theatre Ballet returns to Florence Gould Hall with their popular and critically acclaimed production of Keith Michael's THE NUTCRAKER from December 15-17, 2017. This is a timeless, inventive re-imagined classic danced to Tchaikovsky's beloved score and set in an Art Nouveau style, circa 1907. The set is designed by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, and costumes are designed by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan (Resident Costume Designer at the Metropolitan Opera).




...the production has sweetness, fun and intimacy.
...Although I've seen other productions feature a Marzipan Shepherdess with dancing sheep in Act II, this one, with the tiniest child who goes on dancing for the audience until the last possible moment, is especially irresistible.
-- Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times




...Keith Michael has made an hour mini ballet intended primarily for little kids but equally enchanting for ancients like me. It's completely ingenious the way he deploys the pretty cut-out scenery and the equally charming costumes and it's extraordinary the way he accomplishes so much with so small an ensemble. What's more, the choreography is musical and inventive and fun. These are committed dancers, at much at home in this classic as they were in Tudor, Cunningham and Alston the last time I saw them.
-- Robert Gottlieb, New York Observer




It's a charming production that sheds light on what constitutes "kid friendly": bright colors, quick scene changes, lots of props and an atmosphere tolerant of chattering, squealing audience members.
-- Siobhan Burke, The New York Times




NYTB's The Nutcracker performances are from December 15-17, 2016 at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, NYC (between Park and Madison Avenues). Performances are Friday, December 15 at 6pm as well as Saturday, December 16 and Sunday December 17 at 11am, 1pm, and 3:30pm. Tickets are $24 for children (12 and under) and $34 for adults, and are available online at www.nytb.org, via Ticketmaster at (800) 982-2787, or in person at the Florence Gould Hall box office at (212) 355-6160.

LABALIVE TWO: OTHERS AT NEW YORK 14 STREET Y

LABALIVE




LABAlive presents LABAlive Two: Others on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7pm in the Theater at the 14th Street Y for an evening of literature, dance, theatre, and subversive teachings exploring the theme of OTHER. The evening will feature teachings by LABA Scholar Ruby Namdar and works-in-progress by LABA fellows Hadar Ahuvia, Abigail Katz, and Gordon Haber. Experience the power of ancient text through a modern lens as the fellows question, challenge, and make meaning through new, provocative art. This unique evening blends artistic disciplines with wine, nosh, and learning for a truly special event.


The LABAlive series consists of three performances, each showcasing the work of the LABA fellows. LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program of the 14th Street Y that uses classic Jewish texts to inspire the creation of art, dialogue, and study. Part of LABA is the House of Study, an artist fellowship program in which a group of artists from various disciplines are brought together to study classic Jewish texts in an open minded, non-religious setting. These studies inspire work which is featured in the LABAlive events series and on labajournal.com. Each year's LABA studies are focused around a specific theme. This year's theme is OTHER. Previous themes include Paradise, Eros, Blueprint, Eat, Mother, and Time.


"The LABA theme is chosen every year in early January. When choosing [this year's theme], we didn't realize how poignant and deep it would be to our community and world. The study of ancient texts and the creation of contemporary work help us understand and find empathy for others' points of view, which is crucial in our society." Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director


LABAlive Two: Others melds together literature, dance, and theater with presentations by Gordon Haber, Hadar Ahuvia, and Abigail Katz, respectively. Gordon Haber, author of novellas False Economies and Adjunctivitis, will read from his new book Uggs for Gaza and Other Stories, a collection of stories that investigate themes of displacement, otherness, and silly Australian boots. Brooklyn based dancer and choreographer Hadar Ahuvia (New York Live Arts, EMPAC, Dixon Place, CPR, Danspace Project's Draftwork) will present "Everything you have is yours?" This piece deconstructs instructional videos of Israeli folk dances to uncover the Arab origins of Israeli identity. Finally, Abigail Katz (Atlantic Theatre Company) will present Route One, inspired by Roger Kamenetz's The Jew in the Lotus, which follows the journey of two American friends who join a group of Jewish spiritual leaders visiting the Dalai Lama to discuss exile. These presentations are woven together with teachings by Sapir Award winning scholar Ruby Namdar, focusing on the theme of Other.
