Broadway's SYLVIA and More Set for CUNY TV's November Edition of ARTS IN THE CITY
It's November in the city, packed with arts, culture, history and laughs. And Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson hosts this month's ARTS IN THE CITY from the Noguchi Museum exhibit, Museum of Stones. The newest ARTS IN THE CITY debuts Friday, November 13 (2015) on CUNY TV (*see below) and is available for viewing 24/7 on www.cuny.tv.
Tinabeth Pina tells the story of The Young Lords, a Puerto Rican activist group now remembered in a retrospective at El Museo del Barrio and Loisiada Inc. Modeled on the Black Panthers, The Young Lords Organization was founded in Chicago in September 1968 to bring political and cultural issues of the embattled Puerto Rican community to the fore; a New York City chapter launched in July 1969.
Movie makeup company BxC Studios transforms handsome Andrew Falzon into a gruesome zombie. Time-lapse photography demonstrates the hours-long creation (and removal) required - and anyone can learn it in BxC classes.
Barry Mitchell weighs in with some serious groaners at Punderdome 3000, a tournament-style pun competition hosted by a self-proclaimed Rodney Dangerfield impersonator and his daughter (Fred and Jo Firestone) based in Brooklyn, New York.
Pat Collins goes behind the scenes at A. R. Gurney's Broadway comedy Sylvia, talking with its stars Matthew Broderick, Annaleigh Ashford (who plays the title character - a dog), Julie White, Robert Sella, and director Dan Sullivan.
Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson goes to the new Big Apple Circus show, The Grand Tour, set in the 1920s and featuring clowns, jugglers, acrobats and aerialists from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North and South America - now at Lincoln Center.
And in this month's Hidden Gems of New York, ARTS IN THE CITY profiles the New York City Fire Museum during the FDNY's 150th anniversary.
