Friday 3rd of March 2017

It’s a big week of art and theater in NYC. Crave what excites you — and then get out and experience something amazing.

This weekend is the Armory Show and the other big art fairs around NYC, including Volta, Scope, and more. See the full list and get out and experience a global art fair right here in NYC.

Starting this weekend, see Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition looks at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona—including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera.

Starting previews on Saturday, March 4 is Sweat, Lynn Nottage’s new play about factory workers — and the tragic, unintended consequences of community without opportunity.

The Bookbinder is a one-man show for kids aged 7+ that weaves shadows, paper art, puppets, and music into a spooky fairy tale. It’s at Lincoln Center on Saturday.  

Beginning previews on March 7 is War Paint, starring Patti LuPone, Christine Ebersole, and Douglas Sills. It’s a musical about a business rivalry.  

Starting Tuesday, see the Sydney Dance Company at the Joyce.

The charming 2001 French film Amelie is now a musical. It starts previews on Broadway on Thursday, March 9.

Celebrate the best and worst of live theater at The Play that Goes Wrong, a 1920s whodunit. Performances begin on March 9.

On March 9 through 12, appreciate flamenco at one of the city’s biggest dance events of the year, the Flamenco Festival at City Center.

Starting Friday, March 10, see a starry production of Present Laughter, starring Kevin Kline.
