Get ready for a fun week of culture in NYC! To help you plan your culture calendar, here are our favorite openings of this coming week.
Gauthier Dance // Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart is making its Joyce debut on Tuesday, March 14 with the New York premiere of NIJINSKI.
Starting Wednesday, see a career-spanning double bill of Mark Morris at BAM.
Starting Thursday, March 16, see 946: The Amazing Story of Aldolphus Tips, a feel-good WWII show about a young English girl and her cat at St. Ann’s Warehouse. It’s by the award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo.
Also starting previews Thursday is Groundhog Day: The Musical. It’s a new Broadway blockbuster based on the endearing and memorable 1993 movie.
Art lovers: save your energy for Friday, the opening of the Whitney’s first biennial in its beautiful new downtown building. It’s getting all sorts of early buzz, including a piece in The New Yorker, saying the exhibition “captures the national mood,” a New York Times “user’s guide” that calls the show “refreshed,” and some Artsy posts on the artists. Even event sponsor Tiffany’s is getting in on the biennial action with site-specific window installations at its Fifth Avenue store.
Finally, if you’re craving a “tale as old as time,” in theaters Friday is a new live-action Beauty and the Beast, starting Emma Watson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, and other stars.
