iving in New York has its moments. Of frustration, sure. That goes with the territory. But when something unexpected happens … Here’s one of those moments. No, make that two. At the end of March, I was returning my car to its garage at the end of Houston Street. Midnight had come and gone. The streets were empty as I idled at a red light, ready to hang a left on Seventh Avenue. Out of nowhere, a convoy of police cars, lights in full flash mode and sirens blaring, blocked my way. Helicopters hovered above. And then it came into view. A white, wingless fuselage of a TWA jet floated by, on a flatbed truck, heading in the direction I wanted to go. The proverbial jaw dropped. What the hell? Was I caught in a Fellini movie? I Googled the incident. The jet was on its way to JFK International Airport to become a cocktail lounge at the new TWA Hotel, housed in the former Eero Saarinen-designed TWA terminal. I’ll drink to that. Walking home that same night, I double backed at the northwest corner of Hudson and Charles streets. Someone had scrawled on the pavement in block letters a quote from John Steinbeck. After you travel through this issue, discovering all the great things to do in this city, you’ll find that quote on p. 32. By then, you’ll know why Steinbeck and I are of like mind.

You can spend all day there if you want and finish off the day with dinner and a show. Anything from jazz at Bluebird London to Thomas Keller’s prix fixe tasting menu at Per Se. Q: ARE THERE ANY FAMILYORIENTED MALLS IN THE CITY? A: I think the best family-

Among the prized artifacts on display is the statue’s original copper torch, which was held high from dedication day in 1886 until its removal and replacement 100 years later. Outside, on the roof, a grassy landscape

lenda Jackson as King Lear: It’s a theatergoer’s wish come true. At age 83 (her birthday is May 9), the gutsy actress portrays the ultimate Shakespearean tragic figure in a marathon three-and-ahalf-hour performance eight times a week at the Cort Theatre (www.kinglearon broadway.com). But Lear’s a man, some will insist. An old man. But I’m old, too, Jackson has said, remarking that differences between genders “begin to get a bit misty, a bit foggy” as time marches on. In other words, she’s the right actor at the right time to find the essence of Shakespeare’s “very foolish fond old man.” Unlike “Lear,” Shakespeare’s first and bloodiest tragedy, “Titus Andronicus,” has never been produced on Broadway. Until now, sort of. “Gary” (www.garyonbroad way.com), contemporary playwright Taylor Mac’s comedy, bills itself as “a sequel” to the tragedy. The bloody fall of the Roman Empire is over; bodies are strewn from stage right to stage left at the Booth Theatre; someone has to clean up

the mess made by those in power. Enter a clown named Gary, played by Nathan Lane, to do the necessary dirty work. “Gary” and “Kiss Me, Kate” are both riffs on Shakespeare, but similarities end there. With Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” as its inspiration and at its core, “Kiss Me, Kate” (www.roundabouttheatre .org) is that most golden of Golden Age musical comedies and the first musical to win a Tony Award for best of its year, 1949. The revival at Studio 54 does Cole Porter’s witty love letter to the theater proud. “Kate” is the most fun on Broadway, with hotter-than-hot choreography and a leading lady in Kelli O’Hara, who is, as the song says, “Wunderbar.” Every spring and summer, Shakespeare in the Park (www.publictheater.org) draws fans to Central Park’s Delacorte Theater for free performances. The 2019 season opens on May 21 with “Much Ado About Nothing,” starring Danielle Brooks of “Orange Is the New Black” as Beatrice. “It’s in my bones,” Brooks enthused when Variety asked about her new gig. Amen to that.

William Shakespeare is a hot ticket both on and off Broadway—even though he’s been dead for 403 years. At last count, no fewer than 60 productions of “Hamlet” (give or take a handful) have graced the Great White Way between 1900 and 2009. While the melancholy Dane is not on local boards this month, there’s never been a better time to brush up your Shakespeare. So, read on. And remember, “the play’s the thing.” FRANCIS LEWIS

Parisian menswear line éclectic, founded in 2011, has brought its New Age jackets, coats and bags to its first New York flagship store located in SoHo. The brand’s concept envisions men’s fashion by merging hand-tailored construction with high-tech materials. Each piece in the collection promises durability in wear and in style. Based in newly developed

materials for activewear, the brand speaks to the functional needs of the 21st-century man. Éclectic favors the timelessness of simple lines and quality, with a focus on craftsmanship. www.e-eclectic.com

SHOWFIELDS MALL The new retail concept Showfields boldly touts itself as “the most interesting store in the world.” Somewhere in between a pop-up exhibition space and a permanent mall, Showfields brings together artisans and entrepreneurs to showcase new and cutting-edge products from mainly digitally native Direct-To-Consumer (DTC) brands. For example,It’s By U, a farm-fresh blooms company selling do-it-

yourself arrangement kits online, has opened its first store inside Showfields in NoHo. The idea behind the subscription-based flower shop is to make creating stunning floral arrangements as easy as possible. www.showfields.com

SEA Upscale womenswear brand Sea has opened its first-ever retail space on Canal Street. The breezy boutique offers thoughtful, vibrant collections, comprising easy-to-wear polished pieces with on-trend feminine touches, such as ruffles, and playful twists on floral prints.
