German Battle Ship In East River

FEMA's test of Presidential alerts? What is going on? German Navy Battle Ship going up the East River? Air Force Helicopters flying all around New York City? We wonder what is really going on. I took this photo yesterday from my home in Hunters Point South. 

With Trump as president, we have to worry. We have to worry a lot. This man is insane, known him for 30 years and something is going on, no matter what they tell us. Why would a German Battle Ship be in the East River?

Tony Bennett

NEWARK, NJ -- Metropolitan Entertainment and New Jersey Performing Arts Center proudly present the return of TONY BENNETT, the 19-time Grammy Award-winning musician whose music spans over six decades. Having sold out previous concerts at NJPAC, Bennett returns on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at 8pm.

At the age of 92, TONY BENNETT is not slowing down. Tony’s latest album is a collaborative project with long-time friend and colleague Diana Krall titled, LOVE IS HERE TO STAY. Celebrating the musical legacy of the Gershwins, the album just debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Current and Traditional Jazz Charts. Also out now is a new book, TONY BENNETT: ON STAGE AND IN THE STUDIO, which provides an insightful look into Tony’s illustrious recording career highlighted by an extensive array of photographs, memorabilia, and artwork.

As a special offer, a CD or digital download of Love Is Here To Stay, is included with every ticket purchase.

No one in popular American music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence than Tony Bennett. His previous album, “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90,” won a Grammy Award this past February for his son Dae Bennett who produced the album. Bennett also appeared on the 60th Anniversary Grammy Awards telecast and presented an award with John Legend, who sang with Tony on the 2006 “Tony Bennett: DUETS” recording. This past November, the Library Of Congress presented Bennett with The Gershwin Prize marking the first time that an interpretive singer has been honored. The event was broadcast on PBS Nationally this January and featured tribute performances by Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Gloria Estefan and many others. His signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” was inducted this year in the National Recordings Registry.

With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, TONY BENNETT is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements, spanning over 60 years, includes nineteen Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Kennedy Center Honoree, an NEA Jazz Master and a recipient of the United Nation’s Humanitarian and Citizen of the World honors. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” form part of the fabric of American music culture.

Tony Bennett’s daughter, Antonia Bennett has been touring with her father and will open the performance with a collection of jazz/pop standards. Antonia Bennett is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

India Pale Ale

Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of India Pale Ale, written by Jaclyn Backhaus and directed by Will Davis, begins performances today at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street). The new play will celebrate opening night on Tuesday, October 23.

India Pale Ale is the 2018 winner of the Horton Foote Prize for Promising New American Play.

India Pale Ale stars Purva Bedi (MTC’s East is East), Angel Desai (An Ordinary Muslim), Sophia Mahmud (“The Blacklist”), Nate Miller (MTC’s Ripcord), Shazi Raja (“High Maintenance”), Nik Sadhnani (The Invisible Hand), Lipica Shah (Bunty Berman Presents… ), Sathya Sridharan (An Ordinary Muslim) and Alok Tewari (The Band’s Visit).

The design team includes Neil Patel (Scenic Design), Arnulfo Maldonado (Costume Design), Ben Stanton (Lighting Design), Elisheba Ittoop (Original Music & Sound Design), Dave Bova (Hair & Makeup Design) and Will Davis (Choreography).

In a small Wisconsin town, a tight-knit Punjabi community gathers to celebrate the wedding of a traditional family’s only son, just as their strong-willed daughter announces her plans to move away and open a bar. As they come together for feasts filled with singing and dancing, one generation’s cherished customs clash with another’s modern-day aspirations, and ghosts and pirates from the family's past linger in everyone's thoughts - until one sudden event changes everything. This poignant and smartly funny new play about legacy, life and longing comes from the fresh voice of Jaclyn Backhaus, who again teams up with her Men on Boats director, Will Davis.

Support for India Pale Ale is provided by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust.
