by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2017

Appearing in his 92Y debut was Iranian-American harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. Named BBC Music magazine's 2015 Newcomer of the Year, Mr. Esfahani has traveled the globe, from Boston to Beijing, working tirelessly to prove that harpsichord is an instrument for today, not only relevant but even revolutionary. His concerts often juxtapose early music with works that are modern (even avant-garde), prompting cheers and jeers. His 92Y recital ranges from the English Renaissance to a new version of Steve Reich's Piano Phase, sanctioned by Reich himself.  (more...)

Theater For The New City To Present THE FACULTY ROOMTheater For The New City To Present THE FACULTY ROOM
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

Baby Boomers had nuclear air raid drills in school that stamped their souls with the realization that death is always close by.  Their children now have lockdown drills, rehearsing what to do when a shooter is on the loose in the school.  A nuclear attack never materialized (at least, not yet), but the present generation has Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech and a host of other massacres to remind them of their own mortality. The hard lockdown--when an imminent danger is known--is an unforgettable rite of passage for many people, and it is the setting of 'The Faculty Room,' the newest play by William Electric Black that is the fourth in his GUNPLAYS series.  Theater for the New City will present its world premiere run April 13 to 30, directed by the author.
