THEATER NEWS by Francis Lewis

If this is the outside of the theater, imagine what magic lies within. The 150-foot, 50,000-pound wing spanning the facade of the Lyric Theatre—with a bird’s nest on top—heralds the Broadway opening of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” on April 22.

Curtain Up • Take your pick: See Billy Crudup (above) in “Harry Clarke” at the Minetta Lane Theatre (18 Minetta Ln., 800.982.2787) thru May 13, or listen to his tour-de-force performance at any time or anywhere that suits you on Audible’s digital audio recording (audible.com/harryclarke). Either way, Crudup’s not to be missed.

Disney’s “Frozen,” the movie and now the Broadway musical, is about two sisters reconciling themselves to each other and their fates. But girl power couldn’t be girl power without the strong heroes (Kristoff and Olaf. the snowman) and handsome villain (Hans) who join them on the journey. Take Jellani Aladdin (pictured), who lets it go as Kristoff in his Broadway debut. Aladdin promises a “deeper, more grounded” Kristoff than his movie counterpart. | “Frozen,” St. James Theatre, 246 W. 44th St., 866.870.2717

• Although Leonard Bernstein’s “Can-

Performed in concert on April 18 at Carnegie Hall (Seventh Ave., at W. 57th St., 212.247.7800), “Candide” is a highlight of the celebrations marking the centenary of Bernstein’s birth. • Leading men and leading ladies bend

WHAT’S TRENDING ON THE FOODIE SCENE by Lois Levine

ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN TO ITALY knows how pasta is really supposed to taste: For me, it was an entirely different experience from the Ronzoni boxes I was raised on. At La Pecora Bianca Midtown (950 Second Ave., 212.899.9996) I felt like I was back at my favorite trattoria in Rome, eating fresh, tender pappardelle. Shareable starters like burrata with roasted apples get the palate revved up, and the space—white millwork, pale oak chevron floors—is comfy and cheery. A few weeks back, after catching a movie on E. 34th Street, my friend and I grabbed a cab down to Merakia, (5 W. 21st St., 212.380.1950), a new Greek restaurant in the Flatiron District (Bella, a foodie born in Drama in northern Greece, is always a great companion for these jaunts). Rope-and-metal chandeliers, wrought-iron wall pieces, a fireplace and tinned ceiling wowed, but not as much as the tzatiki, the grilled octopus and a fresh and flaky branzino. The idea

IN NEW YORK | APRIL 2018 | INNEWYORK.COM

of making a dinner out of charcuterie, or nibbling on small plates and sipping a spectacular chardonnay or white Bordeaux, has always appealed to me. So Charc (316 E. 84th St., 646.719.1398), recently opened on the Upper East Side, was, for my tastes, a true find. Choices like spreadable spicy pork salami were terrific when paired with yummy, rich cheeses (goat cheese from Spain, blue cheese from Vermont, sheep cheese from France), and the small plates were equally appealing: tuna crudo, crab cakes and an original Brussels sprouts salad with fig and pistachio. Last but not least was a trip to Momofuku Nishi (232 Eighth Ave., 646.518.1919). A simple menu of starters like the outstanding mackerel toast or refreshing celery and apple can be followed by pasta or a rustic-tasting strip steak with cauliflower and anchovy, tangy barbecued ribs or a marvelous skate with well-flavored grilled bread. Once again, I was most happily sated.

The Penrose

Copper & Oak This bar glows. Close to a thousand bottles of liquor—including 500-plus whiskeys, 200-plus brandies, 50-plus tequilas and mezcals, and 40-plus rums—reflect fluorescent neon-orange lights, helping to illuminate this Lower East Side haven for liquor-lovers. Furnishings—shelves, seating and a bar counter that winds its way through the space—are made entirely of copper, further enhancing the bar’s motif, while wood-paneled floors provide an oaky contrast within this small, tall-ceilinged space. | 157 Allen St., 212.460.5545

Dim candlelight, polished brick walls and green-leather and blue-leather banquette-style booths hide behind a door detailing a menu of coffees, inside of this coffee-shop-and-speakeasy hybrid in NoMad. The space in the Radio Wave Building, the libation list—with housemade specialty cocktails such as “AC/DC,” “Light Me Up,” “Currents and Coils” and “Radio Waves”—as well as the name of the bar (a nod to electricity’s invention), all pay homage to Nikola Tesla’s work as one of the pioneers of modernday electricity. | 49 W. 27th St., 212.689.4002

Pop superstar P!nk brings her “Beautiful Trauma” tour to NYC with a show that can’t

be believed—and an attitude that won’t be denied. By Bob Cannon FOR YEARS, Madison Square Garden has hosted circuses, athletic events and outlandish pop-music performances. On April 4 and 5, it gets all three at once when P!nk brings her “Beautiful Trauma” tour to the arena on the heels of her national anthem appearance at the Super Bowl in February. The tour is the culmination of a career that began in the late1990s as a teen-idol candidate who trailed the likes of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, but has seen her grow into one of the world’s most recognized, beloved and wealthy entertainers —with a healthy dose of controversy along the way. “This is the dream I had,” she admits, “and now I’ve done it. I no longer feel like the underdog with a point to prove.” “I’ve never won the popularity contest,” she adds. “I was never as big as Britney or Christina.” Nevertheless, since her 2000 debut, “Can’t Take Me Home,” P!nk’s singular style and tireless work ethic have earned her over 40 million album sales, 65 million singles, more than a million DVDs worldwide and 14 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Much of that success is due to her exhaustive performances, her robust vocals, soul-baring lyrics and aerial feats. With the greatest of ease, P!nk sang “Sober” while performing a trapeze act at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. At the Grammys the following year, she delivered “Glitter in the Air” while twisting herself in aerial silks—a spot that Billboard ranked as the best performance between 2000 and 2012. In 2009, the music trade magazine also named her one of the Artists of the Decade. Then, at the American Music Awards in November 2017, she wailed “Beautiful Trauma” while scaling the wall of the JW Marriott Los Angeles hotel. Quite literally, P!nk rises above the competition. She was born Alecia Beth Moore on Sept. 8, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, the daughter of nurse Judy Kugel Moore and insurance salesman Jim Moore. There was always music in the house: her dad’s love of Creedence Clearwater Revival and Don McLean, her mother’s fondness for Patsy Cline and Anita Baker. “The Mamas & the Papas was my first vinyl record,” she remembers. Her parents, however, divorced when she was 8. “I didn’t have a hard childhood,” she says. “Compared to other people I had a wonderful childhood. But there was a lot of fighting in my house. I was kicked out of Sunday school as a young child. I was kicked out of the Brownies. I never made it to Girl Scouts. I was into punk-rock music and the theme of anti-authority.” At age 14, about the time she started school at Central Bucks High School West, she began performing in Philadelphia, taking her stage name from the character Mr. Pink in Quentin Tarantino’s bloody film, “Reservoir Dogs.” “I was extreme,” she admits. “I went from skateboarder to hip-hopper to rave child to lead singer in a band.” And, like most girls her age in the 1980s, she worshiped at the feet of Madonna. “I was a fan from the first time I heard ‘Holiday.’” Another rebel woman loomed large in Alecia’s formative

years: Janis Joplin. “She was so inspiring by singing blues music when it wasn’t culturally acceptable for white women,” P!nk explains, “and she wore her heart on her sleeve. I would love to play her in a movie.” Once P!nk began her own career, though, it was she that young women saw as a role model. First, there are the hits: anthemic tunes such as “Get the Party Started,” “Just Give Me a Reason” and “Wild Hearts Can’t be Broken.” Then, there’s the attitude. In 2006, she titled her fourth album “I’m Not Dead” because “It’s about being alive and feisty and not shutting up even though people would like you to.” More recently, while suffering from the flu, she spat out a throat lozenge, then launched into a spine-tingling rendition of the national anthem at Super Bowl LII. The next day, when an internet troll posted a note saying her performance “sucked,” P!nk shot back, “At least I suck while singing our countries [sic] national anthem, and you just suck by yourself on a dirty couch.” Moral: Don’t mess with a woman who scales buildings. Finally, there’s her singular style. “I’m a tomboy, but I’m kind of a hippie and kind of a gangster. I don’t know if that’s a good thing, but it is my thing.” Her thing features an endless range of hairstyles as well: blond, pink, shaved, Mohawk—and a fashion sense that favors strong images such as athletic wear and the occasional men’s suit. All of this has led to P!nk becoming a new feminist icon. At the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, she told a moving tale about her daughter Willow’s being ashamed of herself because she looked “like a boy.” (P!nk married former motocross racer Carey Hart in 2006; they had Willow in 2011). “When people make fun of me, that’s what they use,” she told Willow, who was in the audience. They say I look like a boy or I’m too masculine or I have too many opinions. Or my body is too strong.” “I said to her, ‘Do you see me growing my hair? No. Do you see me changing my body? No. Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?’ “So, baby girl, we don’t change,” she said. “We help other people change so they can see more kinds of beauty.” The other “baby” is the couple’s son, Jameson, born in 2016. “There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock,” she says. “He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. And then I’ll look at him and go, ‘I’ve never liked you.’ Monogamy is work!” she adds. “But you do the work and it’s good again.” Even with a massive career and a busy family life, P!nk manages to work for causes that include the Human Rights Campaign, PETA, the ONE Campaign, the Prince’s Trust, the Run for the Cure Foundation, Save the Children, UNICEF and World Animal Protection. “I’m trying to figure out what’s important to me as a mom, because that’s my number one thing. If nothing else happened to me as ‘P!nk,’ I would feel really proud of what I’ve done.” IN NEW YORK | APRIL 2018 | INNEWYORK.COM

WHEN Austrian composer Gustav Mahler said, “Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again,” he was no doubt echoing the sentiments of millions of New Yorkers suffering from a winter’s worth of cabin fever. As a visitor to this city, you, too, should rejoice in, not only breathing the spring air, but also admiring the diversity of blooms that come to maturity this month. Witness the flowering pear trees at the Pulitzer Fountain at Grand Army Plaza, fluffy crabapples in Madison Square Park, Eastern redbuds at McCarren Park and Kanzan cherry trees in Sunset Park. Elsewhere, there are saucer magnolias dressing up Central Park, Okame cherry trees in Owl’s Head Park and stunning tulips in the meridians along Park Avenue. And, if flowers are one of your passions, then there are two shows you must not miss while in town. North of Manhattan, in the Bronx, is where you will find The New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show. Now in its 16th year, The Orchid Show (thru April 22) displays thousands of orchids in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. This year, a series of installations crafted by Belgian floral artist Daniel Ost, basically living sculptures using virtually ever variety of orchid

are on display. “Orchid Evenings,” on select dates in April, are special programs featuring music, food, dance and cocktails, all held among Ost’s dramatic, flowering works. South of Manhattan, in Brooklyn, visit the Sakura Matsuri festival (April 28-29) at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the traditional Japanese celebration of cherry blossom season. More than 60 events include samurai sword demonstrations, a parasol-society fashion show, Japanese dances and, of course, the stunning varieties of flowering white and pink cherry trees and bushes that you can find at the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, the Cherry Vultivar Area and the Cherry Walk.

COBBLE HILL If you want to get a true taste of “brownstone Brooklyn,” visit the tree-lined neighborhood of Cobble Hill, where you’ll find 19th-century town houses, boutique shopping and diverse restaurants. A few years ago, Bon Appétit named Battersby (255 Smith St., 718.852.8321) one of the 10 best new restaurants in America, and the postage-stamp-size eatery has been packed to the hilt ever since. For more critically acclaimed grub, head to La Vara (268 Clinton St., 718.422.0065), a killer tapas joint, or Pok Pok NY (117 Columbia St., 718.923.9322), a Thai spot whose food has developed a cult following. At Refinery (248 Smith St., 718.643.7861), you’ll find women’s clutches made from vintage men’s tie fabrics; sporty, waterproof messenger bags; and more. Bird Brooklyn (220 Smith St., 718.797.3774) has a fine selection of women’s pieces representing the boho aesthetic Brooklyn is so well known for.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS With its proximity to Manhattan and Victorian-era brownstones, it’s no wonder that notables from Walt Whitman to Truman Capote have called Brooklyn Heights home. The Promenade is a boardwalk overlooking the Statue of Liberty and Downtown Manhattan. Enjoy a flight of beers, dinner, brunch or lunch at the brewery/restaurant, Circa Brewing Co. (141 Lawrence St., 718.858.0055). At Colonie (127 Atlantic Ave., 718.855.7500), have dinner in a space with a lush vertical garden wall. Men will find sophisticated clothing at Goose Barnacle (91 Atlantic Ave., 718.855.2694). Check out the New York Transit Museum (Boerum Pl., 718.694.1600), built inside an old subway station. Learn about the city’s subway system and climb aboard train cars from the early 1900s through the 1990s, all festooned with period advertising. INNEWYORK.COM | APRIL 2018 | IN NEW YORK

About Buses THE GOOD: If you are looking to get a view of NYC street life and are not in a rush, buses are a great way to travel. THE BAD: Traffic is highly unpredictable, and a bus ride can wind up taking much longer than anticipated. THE FACTS: There are approximately 5,900 air-conditioned buses on over 300 routes. Look for signposts marked with a bus emblem and route number. Most buses operate btw 5 am and 2 am; some buses run 24 hours a day. For Select Bus Service on First and Second aves. (btw South Ferry & E. 126th St.), as well as 34th St. (from the FDR Dr. to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center), pay your fare prior to boarding and enter through any of three doors.

About Subways THE GOOD: The fastest, cheapest and most reliable way around town. THE BAD: Subways can get packed, sardine-style, during rush hours, can be hot in the summer and might have a “colorful character� or two. THE FACTS: There are 24 subway lines designated by either a route number or letter, serving 469 stations. Round-theclock, air-conditioned service is provided seven days a week. Subways run every 2-5 mins. during rush hours, 10-15 mins. during the day and about every 20 mins. btw midnight and 5 am. Stops are clearly posted and subway maps are on view at stations and in every car.

Cost of Ride The cost of a subway and bus trip can vary, from $3 for a single fare to $2.75 if you are buying more than one ride (in which case, various discounts are available). For buses (if you are not using a MetroCard), you need exact change (no bills or pennies). You can purchase MetroCards at subway station booths, vending machines, train terminals and select stores throughout NYC. Pay for Select Bus Service with a MetroCard or coins (exact change only) at fare collection machines at designated bus stops. For assistance, call 718.330.1234, or log onto web.mta.info.

Getting Around

The maps indicate MTA bus and subway routes. Each line is in a different color.
