In lateNovember, Urban created a social-media firestorm when he posted a selfie on Twitter. “Snow ain’t the only thing falling in Nashville today!” he wrote. Question: Does his hair grow as quickly as his concerts sell out? | Madison Square Garden, Seventh Ave., btw W. 31st & W. 33rd sts., 866.858.0008, Jan. 29

Drink Up!

Oh, those wild and crazy 18th-century Dutch. What party animals they were. To enliven a soiree, they devised suijgkannen, or puzzle jugs, in beautiful Delft earthenware. “Puzzle jugs got their name from their ingenious design which could include a perforated neck and hollow handle and rim,” says Robert Aronson of Aronson Antiquairs of Amsterdam, who is showing nine of the novelties, including a blue-and-white ring-form example (left, ca. 1725-1735)—pierced with three roundels below three teardrop-shaped spouts—at the 60th annual Winter Antiques Show. The game was to drink ale or wine from the jug, without spilling a drop. “It helped to be highly dexterous and clever,” Aronson adds. | Winter Antiques Show, Park Avenue Armory, Park Ave., at E. 67th St., 718.292.7392, Jan. 24-Feb. 2

eclectic collector

art, antiques & Collectibles by Troy Segal

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store is famed for items inspired by the institution’s exhibits. But, in the case of the Jewels by JAR show, the connection is especially strong—jewelry commissioned from JAR (Joel A. Rosenthal) himself. Unlike the baubles made for such JAR fans as Gwyneth Paltrow and Ellen Barkin, these pieces (including the Carnaval à Venise black titanium and gold Venetian glass earrings, below), aren’t one of a kind. But they do bear the master’s signature flair for drama. | The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave., 212.570.3767, thru Mar. 9

Oven-Baked Objets

Calling all those enraptured by enamel or crazy for cloisonné: The New York Ceramics Fair is in town for its annual visit, bringing with it an array of fine fired things—some of them hundreds of years old, others fresh from the oven. Then there are contemporary ceramicists such as Katherine Houston, who exclusively uses 18th-century color glazes in pieces like “Flemish Fantasia” (above). | Bohemian National Hall, 321 E. 73rd St., 310.455.2886, Jan. 22-26

Frontal View

Four centuries of faces and figures, adorning not just canvases but clocks, vases and tiny ivories, are on display in About Face, an exhibit of portraits at Hirschl & Adler. Of course, in this era of Skype and texted pics, painted representations of a person may seem passé. Yet they remain significant, notes H&A Managing Director Elizabeth Feld, as “portraits of a moment in time.” Winold Reiss’ “Portrait of Miss C. Burton—Texas” (right, 1930) is redolent of its Art Deco era; the highly stylized, sharply dressed lady could be an illustration from a period fashion magazine—in the days before photos dominated their covers. | Hirschl & Adler, 730 Fifth Ave., 212.535.8810, thru Feb. 8


Lost Objects

In A Round Now, his NYCgallery debut, Irish artist Ciarán Murphy displays a style that’s grown increasingly abstract in the last few years. Even so, a sense of loss pervades these enigmatic paintings: The soft-hued shapes seem an outline of things that are past—or, in the case of “Idea for a Sculpture” (above, 2013), that are yet to be. | Taymour Grahne, 157 Hudson St., 212.240.9442, thru Jan. 22

INSIDE FINE ART GALLERY HASTED KRAEUTLER SARAH HASTED & JOSEPH KRAEUTLER Owners of Hasted Kraeutler, a contemporary art gallery that is located in the heart of New York’s Chelsea art district. Sarah and Joseph share art works from the gallery’s outstanding roster of artists, including painter Kim Dong Yoo, sculptor Kwang Young Chun, and photographer Nick Brandt.


Kim Dong Yoo Installation view

Kwang Young Chun is a Korean master sculptor who is world renowned for his process of composing structures with thousands of small triangles, each individually hand molded in paper and strung together one by one. The artist gathers mulberry paper from old books with .RUHDQWH[WVDQGG\HVWKHSDSHUVLQWRPDQ\GLIIHUHQWVKDGHVZLWKWHDVDQGÀRZHUV&KXQ¶V complicated and meticulous sculptures are stunning, a must see!

NICK BRANDT Nick Brandt’s photographs feature stunning images of endangered African animals, which he photographs “in the same way I would a human being, watching for the right ‘pose’ that hopefully will best capture his or her spirit,” he says. Always “moving in close” he never uses a telephoto lens, because it is too impersonal. Prices of the photographs start at $4,500. Hasted Kraeutler is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am - 6 pm. Nick Brandt, Elephant Drinking, Amboseli, 2007

night spots

the after-dark scene by William G. Frierson IV

When two certified sommeliers open a drinking establishment, there’s one thing you can count on—the wine will be good. And at the Lower East Side’s Amuse Wine Bar (right), it is: Expect a well-curated selection, from cellar staples to exotic bottles (think: Turkish dessert wine and Balkan vintages). The place has a classy-casual air and oozes romance: Exposed brick, flickering candles, cozy couches, art from local creatives, live music evenings (Thurs-Sat). There’s even a “bottomless glass” happy hour (Tues & Thurs). Consider me amused. | Amuse Wine Bar, 121 Ludlow St., 212.477.0100

Hypnotic Walls The walls are alive at Tokya, a new Japanese-inflected nightclub in Midtown East. That’s because the 6,000-square-foot, multilevel venue has installed a digital mapping projection system, which covers the interiors in morphing graphic designs and light patterns that pulse with the music. The result: Clubgoers are induced into a hypnotic state (is there any other way to be on a packed dance floor?). A raw bar resides on the mezzanine, and you can still feel the beat up there: The 6-foot-high, gold-tiled DJ booth (below) takes care of that. | Tokya, 40 E. 58th St., 212.308.6888

High-Tech Draft

A flux capacitor has been installed in the Financial District— and no, it has nothing to do with the time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future. Clinton Hall (above), a rustic, 4,000-squarefoot beer den, employs the gadget, a rare and advanced piece of draft beer technology (supposedly one of eight in the world), to calibrate the carbonation, compression and temperature of 10 select “super craft” brews. Why? To ensure you enjoy your pint at its scientifically engineered best. | Clinton Hall, 90 Washington St., 212.363.6000

Greek mythology gets boozy on the themed cocktail menu, starring Icarus—gin, mastiha, crème de violette and tonic. The lemon represents the sun, but don’t worry, you can fly as close to it as you want. | Nerai, 55 E.

great dining experiences by Lois Levine

Sometimes, a simple downhome, Downtown Italian trattoria is all you need. Olio e Più gives you just that, but with two menus. The one for pizzas, cooked in the restaurant’s wood-burning oven, offer an abundance of toppings, including truffles and smoked mozzarella; the trattoria menu features such delightful basics as whole roasted branzino and pasta primavera (below). An additional convenience for early birds: The restaurant is open for breakfast and brunch from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. | Olio e Più, 3 Greenwich Ave., 212.243.6546

A Palette for the Palate

Robert (above), the restaurant located on the ninth floor of the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle, can arguably give the museum a good run for its money in terms of its own artful design. The eye-popping views of Columbus Circle and Central Park; individual chandeliers created out of colorful LED Lucite panels; sculptural steel cocktail tables; and banquettes and chairs done in deep pink and purple suggest you are in the midst of some colorful design exhibit. The dishes, unlike the surroundings, are simply adorned, but peppered with lush flavors. A starter of Blue Bay mussels was grounded with Spanish chorizo; a main course of braised octopus with new potatoes was chunky and generously portioned; and, for dessert, a dense Oreo cheesecake with blood orange jam did a lovely job of satisfying the sweet tooth. | Robert, Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Circle, 212.299.7730

Victorious Vietnamese

I remember doing a profile on Le Colonial during its first NYC inception in the 1990s, and being wowed then by the exotic setting and sensuous Far East fare—and I am wowed once again. The restaurant, which recently underwent a multimillion dollar renovation, retains the sensibility of the original but with even more retro dazzle: The 1920s French-Vietnamese colonial setting includes oversize potted palms, rattan chairs and a red-tinned ceiling. The food is equally exotic: Signature dishes include grilled shrimp mousse on sugar cane and a five-spice roasted duck with shredded jicama. Other standouts are a soft salad roll with poached prawns and hoisin peanut sauce (left), and lemongrass chicken in a clay pot with jasmine rice and a soft-boiled egg. French Indochina never looked or tasted this fine. | Le Colonial, 149 E. 57th St., 212.757.0808

Classic French

Some restaurants come, many go and a few in this town are stalwarts, veterans of the industry, delivering the same elegant cuisine since their inception. The 49-year-old Le Périgord still sings the song of classic French fare, sans trendiness. Escargot, roasted rack of lamb, Dover sole and a simple filet (below) are what neighborhood regulars come for, along with the quiet, effortless service and elegant environs. Despite the many tempting entrées, leaving room for dessert is de rigueur, especially when the menu includes everything from apple tartes Tatin to floating islands to berry tarts to a variety of soufflés. Let them eat cake—and a whole lot more. | Le Périgord, 405 E. 52nd St., 212.755.6244

Surf or Turf

The Sea Fire Grill, in the heart of Midtown, offers both traditional steaks and seafood, all in a swanky, supper-clublike atmosphere. American coastal classics, such as tried-and-true oysters (above) and wild striped bass, are available alongside USDA prime beef dishes, dry-aged for 28 days in-house. | The Sea Fire Grill, 158 E. 48th St., 212.935.3785

“My priority when designing a menu is my customer. I want all my guests to keep coming back by making sure they walk away with a ’wow‘ factor.” | Chef Alexander Lohkin, Mari Vanna, 41 E. 20th St., 212.777.1955

theater news by Francis Lewis

MLB on Bway

In Character

Producer Fran Kirmser is looking to hit a home run on Broadway with Eric Simonson’s new play, Bronx Bombers (right). “Sports and the theater have so much in common,” Kirmser says. “There’s great human drama in both. And both are a form of entertainment, where anything can happen.” Thanks to the “magic of theater,” it’s possible to present 100 years of the team’s legacy onstage at the same time. “It’s Babe Ruth in the same room at the same time as Derek Jeter.” For more of Fran Kirmser’s interview, go to | Bronx Bombers, Circle in the Square Theatre, 235 W. 50th St., 212.239.6200

This month, Frank Langella adds another larger-than-life character to his distinguished theatrical résumé when he defies the elements as Shakespeare’s King Lear (below). | King Lear, BAM Harvey Theatre, 651 Fulton St., Brooklyn, 718.636.4100

“I have a new musical coming up. At first, I couldn’t envision [the story] as a musical, but it’s a good reason to sing and will be exciting.” Bartlett Sher, director | The Bridges of Madison County, Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, 236 W. 45th St., 212.239.6200 For Bartlett Sher’s full interview, go to

Quick-Change Artist

For five decades, the actor has embodied dozens of memorable men. Here are three: • Langella played Dracula on Broadway (1977) as a sexy beast, and female audiences swooned. • Tragically flawed Richard Nixon in Frost/Nixon earned him a third Tony Award (2007) and an Oscar nomination (2008). • In the Broadway revival of Man and Boy (2011), Langella’s unscrupulous financier/con man pimped his own son, without even blinking an eye. Nasty, but nevertheless a spellbinding performance.

Jefferson Mays (left, in fur coat, with Catherine Walker and Bryce Pinkham) is living an actor’s dream that could just as easily turn into a nightmare. In the new Broadway musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Mays plays eight members of the same aristocratic family: six men and two women. All are dispatched (read: killed) quickly and in good order by another family member (Pinkham). So, off come trousers, moustaches, shoes, gloves, hats, dresses, what have you at a frantic pace. In Act One, Mays has 12 costume changes, some with seconds to spare. Helping make it run like clockwork are three backstage Svengalis: two dressers and a hair supervisor, without whom this show—and Mays—would definitely not go on. | A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder, Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 W. 48th St., 212.239.6200

Black, White and Fragrant

Drawing inspiration from a childhood spent playing in his family cellars in Cognac, France, Kilian Hennessy aims to evoke “the sugar in alcohol and the wood of cognac barrels” in his high-end scents. As quaint as this philosophy is, Kilian, his first U.S. boutique (above), proves that the grandson of the founder of luxury goods group LVMH hasn’t lost touch with his swanky roots. Bottles of By Kilian fragrances, including L’Oeuvre Noire and In the Garden of Good and Evil, stand tall on wall shelving, offering a suitably elegant backdrop to the Meatpacking District boutique’s modern furniture and chandeliers, some of which the owner himself designed. | Kilian, 804 Washington St., 212.600.1298

Surf’s Up! Sports company Patagonia brings surfer vibes into the Big Apple at its new NoLIta store. Racks of wet suits surrounding a line of colorful surfboards (above) in the center of the shop inspire beachy daydreams, while the California-based brand’s signature fleece jackets offer men and women a stylish way to bundle up. | Patagonia, 313 Bowery St., 212.228.2514


Gadgets Galore

Hammacher Schlemmer has been the guru of gadgets for more than a century. The original mail-order company progressed from its roots offering hard-to-find tools in the late-1800s to selling never-before-seen devices at its Midtown shop in 1926. It spent 2013 renovating that store, which offers inventions such as temperature-regulating bedsheets, window-washing robots and animatronic fortune tellers. Look up to see a $90,000 whale submarine and a motorized monocycle (right) dangling from the ceiling. | Hammacher Schlemmer, 147 E. 57th St., 212.421.9000

Brooklyn Blues

Turkish denim company Mavi is sweeping into Brooklyn with two boutiques. The Park Slope flagship (below) and its slightly newer Brooklyn Heights sibling both feature Mavi’s “denim kitchen” installation: a display of the ingredients (buttons, rivets and fabrics) that go into crafting the jeans. Shoppers can also choose from a selection of shirts. | Mavi, 205 Fifth Ave., Park Slope, 718.789.2038; 90 Smith St., Brooklyn Heights, 718.522.0836

Down to Earth

Finishings made of reclaimed branches and green terrariums may seem unexpected at a womenswear shop for “understated luxury and modern design,” but the earthy style adds charm and a sense of discovery to Otte’s boutique (below, left) in NoLIta. The new location—founder Kay Lee’s fifth in NYC—showcases her signature collection of hats, blouses (left), pants and skirts, alongside apparel and accessories from emerging designers. | Otte, 281 Mott St., 212.925.0200

Afterglow Makeup artist François Nars knows how to harness light to create beauty. His new SoHo boutique (below), which offers both cosmetics and lessons in application, glows with stark white walls, while his makeup uses essential oils for luminosity. With names like “Orgasm” and “Deep Throat,” NARS products may induce blushing before they’re even applied. | NARS, 124 Prince St., 646.356.0423

The Perfect Fit

The trained bra-fit stylists at Intimacy have revealed a secret: What’s under our clothes can have a greater effect on our appearance than what’s on the outside. That’s why the expert staff at the lingerie chain’s newly renovated Upper East Side boutique offers one-on-one styling sessions to put shoppers in supportive, comfortable bras. The store carries more than 90 sizes of premium European bras with matching panties, including brands such as Andres Sarda (above), PrimaDonna and Marie Jo L’Aventure. The boutique also allows shoppers to store their sizes and wish lists on its digital database, making repeat visits a breeze. | Intimacy, 1252 Madison Ave., 212.860.8366 | january 2014 | IN New YORK

Five-Star Strata

The Enrique Norten-designed Mercedes House (left) has been converted into an elite rental complex. Strata at Mercedes House includes 162 apartments, many of which offer private terraces. Ceilings soar at 9 feet 3 inches, floors are made of solid oak and solar shades are built into windows. Kitchens offer SubZero stainless steel refrigerators and Caesarstone countertops (far left). The building also includes the 80,000-square-foot Mercedes Club, which boasts a fitness center, full-service spa and more. An outdoor movie screen and lounge areas with fire pits are a few other luxurious touches. For $4,995 a month, a one-bedroom with terrace is yours. | Strata at Mercedes House, 550 W. 54th St., 212.586.2222

My, has the East Village come a long way. Once the province of punk rockers and seedy stores, the neighborhood has undergone a gentrification over the past decade, and the streets are now filled with designer boutiques, high-end restaurants and well-appointed apartments. Case in point: 532 E. 5th St., a new residential rental building in the heart of all the action. Units like apartment 3R (below) include a chef’s kitchen and breakfast bar, stone-tiled bathrooms, oak wood flooring, an in-home washer and dryer and Anderson Thermopane windows. Interested? Two-bedroom, two-bathroom units rent for $5,595 a month. | Town Real Estate, 337 W. Broadway, 646.561.5319

Up on the Roof

If you are looking for a room with a view, you may want to consider the Philip House on the Upper East Side. The classic prewar, brick-and-limestone 11-story building, built in 1927, offers 71 spacious and elegant condominiums, including the majestic Penthouse D (above), currently on the market for $11.5 million. Why the hefty price tag? Think: over 3,500 interior square feet with a wraparound landscaped roof terrace at 2,100 square feet; four bedrooms; 4.5 bathrooms and details such as crown moldings, coffered ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces and wide plank flooring. (Penthouse D is one of five penthouses Philip House is offering for sale). New York City looks awfully swell from this vantage. | Philip House, 141 E. 88th St., 212.860.4188

On or offscreen, Sarah Jessica Parker is all about New York. To begin with, the 48-year-old actress calls Manhattan home. She and husband Matthew Broderick live in Greenwich Village with their children, 11-year-old James Wilkie and 4-year-old twins Tabitha and Loretta. The city also served as the hip backdrop to her career-defining HBO series Sex and the City (1998-2004), as well as its two movies. But right now, New York— Off-Broadway, to be precise— is once again Parker’s workplace; she is appearing through Jan. 26 at the Manhattan Theatre Club alongside Blythe Danner in The Commons of Pensacola, Parker’s first stage appearance in 12 years. In the play, written by actress Amanda Peet, Parker plays a woman whose mother has been forced to abandon her opulent lifestyle to live in a one-bedroom apartment in Florida after her husband’s Wall Street scam becomes headline news. “I just thought it was a really wonderful role,” says Parker, “and playing opposite Blythe—we worked together about 18 years ago on the same stage in a play called Sylvia. I always wanted to find another opportunity with her!” “One of the things that’s great about New York,” continues Parker, “is that it’s not a one-industry town. It has education, academia, service, arts, publishing, theater, politics, fashion, finance, as well as moviemaking. There are so many people who are cogs in the great wheel of the city. I can’t hide behind gates or in a car, but if I can get a few yards from my front door, I can still get lost in a crowd.” Good luck with that, Sarah. Thanks to her much-loved Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw’s $40,000 collection of Manolo Blahnik shoes, Parker remains a recognized style icon who appears regularly at Fashion Week and other such events. In 2010, she signed on as president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage, a line inspired by vintage Halston looks. And she just launched her new SJP Collection shoe line with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus, sold exclusively at Nordstrom stores and It’s a far cry from her humble upbringing. Born in Nelson-


ville, Ohio, the fourth of eight children in a family that, at one early point, was on public assistance, Parker and her family moved to New Jersey when she was 11, about the same time as her Broadway debut in a revival of The Innocents (1976). Unfortunately, the show flopped, but it did set her acting career in motion. Parker studied ballet at The School of American Ballet. At 12, she became the third girl to play the lead in Annie (1978-1980) on Broadway, then starred in the TV series Square Pegs (1982-83). Her career progressed with roles in L.A. Story (1991), followed by Honeymoon in Vegas (1992), Ed Wood (1994) and Miami Rhapsody (1995). Then, in 1997, came Sex and the City, an opportunity she nearly let pass. “I had this wonderful life in New York at the time,” she recalls. “I didn’t want anything to change. I was in theater and movies, and in my free time I saw my friends. But my friends managed to get me to the set on that first day of shooting. I never looked back from that moment.” At about the same time, she married Broderick, star of such films as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), and their union has been one of the most stable in show business. Parker has been a UNICEF ambassador since 1997, and she serves on the Presidential Committee of the Arts. She also serves on the board of New York City Ballet, and she both executive-produced and narrated the new, 12-part docudrama city.ballet, which can be viewed on AOL ON. For good measure, she also does fundraising for New York City schools. For quiet time, Parker, Broderick and the children retreat to their house in the Irish fishing village of Killybegs in County Donegal, or to their 19th-century beach house in Bridgehampton, Long Island. But those are getaway spots. New York City really makes her hum. “I’m a city person. I love concrete, I love architecture and the sound of cabs. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. It’s not about a conscious decision every day. It’s just who we are.”

ew York may be the most aptly named city in America, as no other metropolis puts so much emphasis on the word “new.” This month in particular, museums and theaters offer a rich array of offerings that, in form or content, creatively push the artistic envelope.

Out of Hand, currently on exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design (2 Columbus Circle, 212.299.7777, thru June 1), elevates the marriage of technology and art to a whole new level, italicizing the influence of digital fabrication technologies on contemporary art, design and architecture. Over 80 artists, architects and designers demonstrate through their works their experimentation with new technologies. For example, Marc Newson’s fractal necklace juxtaposes highlevel mathematics with exquisite gemstones, by creating a piece of jewelry composed of 2,000 diamonds and sapphires, set in circuitous designs that were developed by a mathematical formula. Somarta’s lace PROTEAN Bodywear, worn by Lady Gaga, is digitally knit in one piece, without any seams, and covered in Swarovski crystals. And Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg’s delicately conceived “Nervous System: Hyphae Pendant Lamps” were designed to replicate the way veins form in leaves, created out of nylon, selective laser sintering and LED light. Art, partnered with concepts of mathematics, digital and laser technologies: The eye of the beholder just keeps expanding.

A Director’s Touch

It didn’t take long for Director Anthony Minghella’s production of Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera (Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, Columbus Ave., btw W. 63rd & W. 64th sts., 212.363. 6000) to become the talk of the town. During the second intermission on opening night, Sept. 25, 2006, the chatter became almost deafening, as the audience fervently debated the pros and cons of Minghella’s decision to have a wooden puppet and not a cute, flesh-and-blood child actor portray Butterfly’s 2-year-old son. Eight years later, the chatter has hardly died down, as the production once again joins the repertoire (performances are on Jan. 16, 20, 24, 28), with Minghella’s innovations continuing to thrill.


Metropolitan Opera features Bunraku-style puppets and other Japanese theater techniques. Facing page: Two images from “Transforming Still Life Painting” at The Frick Collection show how this still life evolves in front of a viewer’s eyes.

A Day in the (Still) Life

If the Dutch Old Masters were plying their trade today, would they be using computer graphics instead of a brush? The question irresistibly springs to mind when viewing Rob and Nick Carter’s “Transforming Still Life Painting” (2012), an adjunct to the Vermeer, Rembrandt and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting From the Mauritshuis exhibit at The Frick Collection (1 E. 70th St., 212.288.0700, thru Jan. 19). The work reproduces Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder’s famed

The Science Behind Art

In addition to the borrowings from Bunraku puppetry (entirely appropriate given the opera’s locale: Nagasaki, Japan), the staging has a cinematic quality consistent with Minghella’s career in film. The late director (he died in 2008) is best remembered for The English Patient, for which he won the 1996 Oscar for Best Director. As in that movie, there are sweeping wide-angle vistas in Butterfly. But its minimalist set is totally nonnaturalistic, mirrored and washed with bold colors and intense lighting that underscore the tragedy of two lovers separated by an unbridgeable cultural divide. Minghella’s use of silence in the opera is Below: Madama yet another brilliant coup de théâtre. Butterfly at the

Then, suddenly, the stems gently sway, as if stirred by a breeze. One of the tulips droops. And look—there’s a snail climbing up the window frame! Riveted, the viewer stands before the “painting” (actually a three-hourlong looped film), watching as night falls, a firefly zooms by, dawn breaks, buildings in the distance come into view—and the cycle begins again. It’s a modern and moving still life, in both senses of the word.

Academy Award-nominated and Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor, who has been called the “P.T. Barnum of contemporary stagecraft,” reinvents the Bard in her latest project. Theatre for a New Audience’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Polonsky Shakespeare Center, 262 Ashland Pl., Brooklyn, 866.811.4111, thru Jan. 12) takes the classic comedy for a new kind of joyride, creating a design that evolves from minimalist to nearsurrealistic. The opening act shows a set devoid of anything except a lone bed, sitting center stage under a spotlight. The stage then seems to grow, literally and figuratively. The elfish character Puck slips into the bed, which starts to get larger and larger, through the help of a skeletal tree from above. It lifts him up, until he eventually disappears into a huge silk cloud. The stage then becomes stars and sky, as well as a moving forest floor; the combination of the disappearing figure and the stage transforming into some dreamy forest reminds us of that ethereal state we enter when we dream. While there are more grounded scenes, taking place in the Athenian court where the wedding plans of Duke Theseus and the Amazon queen, Hippolyta, get interrupted, it is the forest scenes that devour your attention in this production: the wilderness floor, drenched in moonlight; exotic flora and fauna, projected on bolts of white silk; and the omnipotent forest fairies and sprites (played by children), who emerge from the shadows to control the play’s characters. Shakespeare’s timeless comedy is reimagined into


the kind of magical fantasy that has come to be the brand of Julie Taymor.

Sartorial Surprises

Couturier Jean Paul Gaultier has been designing for four decades. But his clothing looks far from dated; in fact, many concepts have yet to hit the fashion mainstream (case in point: male skirts)—or are just now arriving there (i.e., corsets as outerwear, a style he created for Madonna back in 1990). There’s no bigger testimony to the cutting-edge creativity of the French designer, the subject of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Pkwy., 718.638.5000, thru Feb. 23). Displaying some 135 ensembles—including those infamous cone-shaped bras sported by the Material Girl—the exhibit traces Gaultier’s oeuvre (divided thematically into sections, like “Punk Cancan” and “Urban Jungle”) as well as his influence on artists and photographers, and on social concepts of cross-dressing and multiculturalism. The show also takes an avant-garde approach to display, making heavy use of audio-visuals. Videos, films and voice-overs are scattered throughout. Many of the custommade mannequins are in motion, revolving in place or circulating on a never-ending runway. Several actually seem to be looking at and talking to you—courtesy of the animated faces (including Gaultier’s own) projected in high-definition on their heads. What better way to honor a man whose career has been a constant mission to surprise?

even if you don’t know anything about the sport, you know the name. Joe Namath, aka “Broadway Joe,” because of his love of both New York City nightlife and beautiful women, is arguably the most famous quarterback ever to play the game of football. Born in 1943 in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, Namath honed his quarterback skills at the University of Alabama, where he played for legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, who called Namath, “the greatest athlete I have ever coached.” In 1965, he signed to play with the New York Jets for a reported $400,000, a then unheard-of figure in football. Two years later, he proved worthy of the hefty sum when he led the Jets to victory in Super Bowl III, beating the Baltimore Colts 16-7, at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. Namath played with the Jets through most of his career, finishing with one year with the Los Angeles Rams before retiring in 1977. Namath, who also dabbled in movies and television, is often credited

Trivia and tidbits on the city that never sleeps by Lois Levine

Medieval Manor The Cloisters (left), one of the city’s finest bastions of medieval art, was designed to resemble elements culled from several European medieval abbeys, and actually incorporates parts from five cloistered abbeys of Catalan, Occitan and French origins. The abbeys were all disassembled before the bricks were shipped to New York City for the building of the museum in the 1930s. Furthermore, the elegant, medieval-style cloistered herb gardens that surround the museum were designed with horticultural information contained in medieval manuscripts.

Bottom’s Up Storied Sips by Erica Duecy (Random House Reference, 2013) chronicles the tales behind the creation of some 40 cocktails, including the popular Cosmopolitan (“with paternity claims from San Francisco to New York City”) and the Manhattan (invented in the 1860s in a bar south of Houston Street, named after the city where it was created).

4,000 street vendors set up shop every day in New York City, offering such culinary temptations as falafel, candied nuts and kebabs.

City by the Bridge The Brooklyn Bridge, touted by many as one of the world’s most majestic bridges, was monumentally difficult to build. Construction took 14 years, involved 600 workers and cost some $15 million. Nearly 25 people were killed in the process, including the original designer, John Augustus Roebling.

“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The sky of New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need?”—Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead 84
