behind the curtain news » by Francis Lewis

Let There Be Light When the curtain goes up on the 50th-anniversary Broadway production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (starring, left to right, Carrie Coon as Honey, Madison Dirks as Nick, Amy Morton as Martha, Tracy Letts as George), George and Martha have returned home after a boozy faculty party at their small New England college. The house is dark, so the first thing they do upon entering is literally turn on the lights. “This is Albee’s most realistic play, and the lighting reflects that,” says Lighting Designer Allen Lee Hughes, referring to the multiple true-to-life sources of illumination on the set: the early-1960s chandeliers, table and floor lamps for which he has chosen the bulbs and wattage. “Part of my job is to make sure the lighting is invisible for the majority of the play except when the actors turn on or off lights,” he continues. “Other than that, the lighting should keep focus on the actors and not call attention to itself.” » Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Booth Theatre, 222 W. 45th St., 212.239.6200

Carolee Carmello (below) has the role of a lifetime as superstar evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in the Broadway musical Scandalous. “I felt a connection to her right from the start,” Carmello says. “I relate to Aimee’s ambition and drive. She had two children (older daughter and younger son), just like I do. She loved them, but was unable to be satisfied with a life as a wife and mother in the suburbs. I can relate to that. Luckily for me, I don’t share her addiction to drugs. But I do wish I had some of her boundless energy. She accomplished so much in her short life. She worked nonstop and was such a pioneer in her day.” If Carmello, whose 12th Broadway show Scandalous is, could say one thing to Aimee, it would be this: “Thank you for blazing trails for women, for being such a charismatic entertainer while also saving souls, and for giving me such juicy material to sink my teeth into. I couldn’t make this stuff up!” » Scandalous, The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson, Neil Simon Theatre, 250 W. 52nd St., 877.250.2929

The Personal Touch There’s no limit to what Costume Designer Philip Heckman will do for his art. Consider his latest show, Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking (starring, above, left to right, Jenny Lee Stern, Marcus Stevens, Natalie Charlé Ellis, Scott Richard Foster), the Off-Broadway musical satire of Broadway hits and misses. The ball gown in the Evita skit “is the first eye-popping costume that comes out, and I wanted it to look like it was on fire,” Heckman says. “So, I handapplied thousands of Swarovski crystals myself.“ He did the same for the Rock

of Ages number, only those Swarovski crystals are from his private stash. “If I’m really in love with the project, I don’t mind putting forth a little donation. These stones aren’t doing any good in storage. They might as well be onstage, where people can see and enjoy them.” And to make the outfits in the Once parody—bought in a thrift store in his Brooklyn neighborhood—look more down-and-out and raggedy, “I took a cheese grater to them.” » Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking, 47th Street Theatre, 304 W. 47th St., 212.239.6200

great dining experiences » by Bonnie Davidson

East + West

Born and raised in the Philippines and schooled at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in the Hudson Valley, Leo Forneas, executive chef of Silk Rd Tavern, brings a Southeast Asian sensibility to traditional American dishes, and favors local and sustainable ingredients. He substitutes Korean rice cakes for pasta in mac ’n’ cheese; adds salted black beans and pickled cucumber to crab potpie; plates fork-tender braised short ribs with Brussels sprouts and a sunny-side-up egg (above, left); and flavors mussels with curry, coconut, bacon and roasted pineapple (above, right). A new brunch menu (served daily, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.) travels the spice route with shrimp and miso grits, and fried chicken with yuzu honey and scallion biscuits. » Silk Rd Tavern, 46 W. 22nd St., 212.989.7889

bedazzled Newly renovated inside the sparkling Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED store in SoHo, Café Kristall (below) is decorated with plenty of bling. Multifaceted gems dangle on chandeliers and are embedded in walls. Tabletops are covered in Carrara marble. And many of the colorful paintings— by the likes of Hermann Nitsch, Albert Oehlen and Alejandro Garmendia—are borrowed from the private collection of artist Julian Schnabel, who is a close personal friend of Chef/owner Kurt Gutenbrunner. In this elegant setting, Austrian specialties satisfy shoppers taking a quick break (open-face Matjes herring sandwich), as well as those with time to linger (classic Wiener Schnitzel).

Curves Ahead


Conceived by award-winning Manhattan-based design firm ICrave, the interior of STK Midtown (above) flaunts more curves than the Guggenheim Museum, with a sleek, sexy vibe enhanced by an in-house DJ. While a fashionable crowd congregates in the lounge, dining companions at lunch and dinner nestle into circular leather banquettes; the pervasive thumping soundtrack prompts them to lean close to each other when they speak, making a meal in this expansive space a suprisingly intimate dining experience. The main menu attractions, grilled steaks (skirt, filet mignon, sirloin), come in portions labeled small (6-10 ounces), medium (10-16 ounces) and large (20-34 ounces), and can be topped with a selection of savories, including foie gras butter, or sauced with chimichurri or horseradish. » STK Midtown, 1114 Sixth Ave., 646.624.2455

the after-dark scene » by William G. Frierson IV

Secret Speakeasy No one is calling for a return to Prohibition’s ban on booze, but that hasn’t stopped several NYC bars from emulating the aesthetics of the era. Raines Law Room, for example, offers the underground charm of an early-20th-century speakeasy—no visible sign, a buzzer for entry, a dimly lit lounge interior. The old-timey vibe is cemented by tin ceilings, vintage photographs, an antique record player and flapper silhouettes painted on the wall. Cocktails from the traditional-leaning menu—divided into categories such as “bright & strong,” “stirred & straight,” “with a hint of spice” and “with a bitter edge”—are prepared in a homey kitchen space (left), featuring antique fixtures and concealed cupboards, where tipplers can watch mixologists at work. The place was named after an 1896 liquor tax intended to discourage excessive consumption, yet serious drinks flow freely.

» Raines Law Room, 48 W. 17th St., no phone

Ever wish you could sip cocktails out of a designer handbag? Maybe not. But at Bar Pleiades—where the décor is inspired by fashion icon Coco Chanel—you can come pretty close. Nestled in a banquette upholstered in white sharkskin and surrounded by beige, quilted walls modeled after a classic Chanel purse, you can peruse an everevolving cocktail menu that may include the Capsicum Cooler (above, Aquavit, gin, bell pepper, lemon, lemon bitters). The bar also offers bites both savory (raw oysters, eggplant ravioli) and sweet (warm madeleines).

Pristine tropical beaches. Pulsating reggae rhythms. Hammocks strung beneath palm trees swaying in the trade winds. The pleasures of Jamaica may be far from New York City, but Kingston Hall (below)—a new clubhouse bar in the East Village—brings an island air to our urban isle. A British-colonial vibe defines the décor with stained-glass, an antique grandfather clock and a pool room. This Jamaican-themed hangout features a host of rummy cocktails, from the Jamaican Car Bomb (a shot of gold rum dropped into a glass of ginger beer) to Annie Palmer’s Dark & Stormy (dark rum, ginger beer, lime). Served inside a coconut, the signature libation—aptly named the Drunken Coconut (gold rum, Malibu, coconut water, pineapple juice)—brings the lullaby lyrics of Bob Marley to life: “every little thing gonna be all right.” » Kingston Hall, 149 Second Ave., 212.673.2663

art, antiques & stylish finds » by Troy Segal

Color-Blocking “Fashions in art can be fickle,” observe Adrian Mibus and An Jo Fermon, co-owners of London’s Whitford Fine Art. But one style that stays in vogue is Cubism, and sterling examples of the early-20th-century school anchor the gallery’s booth at the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show. On offer are “rediscovered” avatars such as André Lhote (1885-1962), who, if not as famed as his Cubist colleagues Picasso and Braque, still did original, “extraordinary” work, says Fermon. While others adopted a neutral palette, for example, Lhote “always kept color in his paintings,” as in the oil “Cordes (Tarn)” (above, 1912). » Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Ave., 212.642.8572, Oct. 19-25

Two years ago, when artist Lisa Zwerling felt stirred to do a series based on Mozart’s The Magic Flute, “I never thought I’d end up with 38 paintings!” she laughs. Yet given the beloved opera’s wealth of dramatic images and episodes—caverns of fire, majestic temples, women slaying dragons and heroes serenading wild beasts (left)—she couldn’t stop. In illustrating the opera, Zwerling in effect mounted her own production, casting friends as models and making costumes, like a cape for the Queen of the Night based, fittingly, on an Alexander McQueen coat. » First Street Gallery, 526 W. 26th St., 646.336.8053, Oct. 2-27

King of Bling Whether he was decorating Hollywood mansions or creating costumes for the Broadway musical Camelot, designer Tony Duquette (1914-1999) never met an over-the-top effect he didn’t like. Nowhere is his “more is more” mantra more evident than in his 80 jewelry pieces up for auction this month. Knuckle-grazing rings, coral skull brooches, manaclelike bracelets: These Jewels of Enchantment are not for the faint of heart—or body; some, such as an abalone shell and baroque pearl necklace (left), are heavy to wear. Of course, one can always just display them, as befits the works of art they are. » Bonhams, 580 Madison Ave., 212.644.9001, Oct. 11-15 (exhibit), Oct. 15 (sale)

Master of Reality There are artists who embrace the new: high-tech methods, exotic materials. And then there are those who prefer a classic approach. In the latter camp falls Peter E. Poskas III, whose current solo show features some 15 paintings of two time-honored genres: slightly impressionistic, serene landscapes of his native Connecticut and Maine, such as “Morning Light, Monhegan” (left, 2012), and still lifes of fruit and flowers, painted with razor-sharp precision against stark backgrounds. While traditional in content and execution, the paintings possess a simplicity and a directness that feel completely contemporary. » Hirschl & Adler Modern, 730 Fifth Ave., 212.535.8810, thru Oct. 13

Inspired by love lost and found, Taylor Swift has a megahit single, brand new album and three Country Music Award 2012 nominations, including Entertainer of the Year. By Bob Cannon Taylor Swift could not contain herself. She simply had to tell her nearly 8.5 million Twitter followers: “Times Square. @MTV made my dreams come true and put my video on the big screen.” On Aug. 30, the 22-year-old, six-time Grammy winning country music superstar’s official video for “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” her chart-topping breakup anthem, had its world premiere not in Nashville, as you might expect, but at the Crossroads of the World, on MTV’s enormous HD digital screen in Times Square. She received a tremendous reception from local fans, and clearly, Swift was in a New York state of mind. With her fourth studio album, Red, due for release on Oct. 22, Swift is sporting a new, more sophisticated image these days. Gone are the girlish golden curls. In their place are long, straight locks with bangs that playfully graze (and sometimes fall into) her eyes, and a fashion-model sleekness replacing her earlier doe-eyed innocence. Her every move, including frequent visits to New York City, is blogged and tweeted about by legions of fans (called “Swifties”), who have added more than 34 million “Likes” to her Facebook page. They meet on Swift’s website (and dozens of fan sites) to discuss all things Taylor: the September release of her second fragrance, Wonderstruck Enchanted; new candid photos of her cat Meredith; and, especially, to read between the lines of rippedfrom-her-diary lyrics about teenage heartbreak and newfound love, in an effort to determine which famous ex-boyfriend (Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal) is being burned by Taylor’s pen. At the same time, they keep close tabs on her current relationship with Conor Kennedy, son of Robert F.

1012_IN_F_Celeb.indd 20

Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Richardson Kennedy. “I’ve been on tour since I was 16 and I always do meet-and-greets before and after shows,” Swift told London’s Telegraph, “so you kind of build these friendships with people. I have girls come up to me and tell me exactly what’s going on in their love lives. They always come out with these bold confessions, like ‘I’m so glad I’m at your concert tonight. My boyfriend just left me.’ I’ll commiserate with them [and] if they seem like they’re really upset about it, then you’ve gotta give them a hug.” Offstage, she solidifies her link to fans via the Internet. “I spend a bit of time online every day,” she continues, “because that’s how we keep in touch.” In addition to her ever-growing international fan base, scores of celebrities sing Swift’s praises. For her philanthropic efforts on behalf of U.S. tornado and flood relief and youth charities, as well as her public stance against bullying, earlier this year First Lady Michelle Obama presented her with Nickelodeon’s Big Help Award, proclaiming “Taylor Swift may be in the news most often for her award-winning songs and multiplatinum records, but every step of the way she has always made it a point to give back … [She] has shattered every expectation of what a 22-year-old can accomplish.” “Yay, Taylor Swift!” cheers Dolly Parton. “I think she’s a smart, beautiful girl … She’s got a good head on her shoulders … Her songs are great, she keeps herself anchored and she knows who she is, and she’s living and standing by that … I just admire her. I think she’s incredible, and a great role model for young people right now … I’m hoping that she’s having a really, really hot streak [and that] her 15 minutes of fame last for 40 years.”

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and found a new world. Little did he know that, 520 years later, New York—the capital of that new world—would be a melting pot and marketplace for artists and artisans of all types and lands. In honor of Columbus Day (Oct. 8), we present a global array of fine arts and crafts. Even the explorer himself is on display: Discovering Columbus (thru Nov. 18) wraps an elevated living room around his 1892 monument in Columbus Circle (right), giving visitors a unique up-close view of his visage.

germany German jewelers have always been innovators: In the early 1800s, when all the silver and gold was going to the Napoleonic War effort, they made lacy, delicate pieces out of cast iron. That ingenious spirit lives on in the designs of contemporary makers, such as this BY KIM 18-karat rose-gold necklace with an off-center cascade of diamonds and pink-hued gemstones in varying cuts, available at Wempe Jewelers (700 Fifth Ave., 212.397.9000).

But today, it also serves as inspiration for South African artists such as Clive Sithole. “The Language of the Goddess–The Connector (One)” (right, 2012), at Amaridian (31 Howard St., 917.463.3719), was made the traditional way, of hand-built, pit-fired clay, but breaks with custom in other ways, beginning with Sithole himself—creating ceramics was historically women’s work.

The city is ablaze in vibrant colors on the trees and in the stores, its pulse quickening with a new round of cultural, social and artistic activities. From Chinese massages to power facials, spas and salons offer refreshing, rejuvenating services that ensure you jump into the season without missing a beat. By Michael Zelenko “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” observes the character Jordan Baker in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. And New York City truly comes alive with the onset of autumn: Broadway opening nights, store and restaurant debuts, new museum exhibits—and parties to celebrate all of the above. It’s a social whirlwind, and to enjoy it, visitors and denizens need, like the leaves, to be at their peak. Happily, the city abounds in spas and salons offering treatments for both men and women designed to give skin a glow, put pep in the step and, in general, make you ready to take on the town. To get off on the right foot, it’s crucial to take care of the feet. Long Tai Body Work (53 W. 29th St., 631.235.9888) specializes in reflexology, a therapeutic massage technique that targets the nerve endings in the toes, heels and arches, relieving aches and soreness and, advocates believe, boosting energy throughout the entire body. Foot fatigue can be alleviated in more external ways, as well. The Buff Pedicure offered by Townhouse Spa (39 W. 56th St., 212.245.8006) in Midtown does a particularly thorough restoration job, exfoliating dead skin and buffing calluses, applying an anti-inflammatory green-tea mask and, finally, dipping the extremities into lavender paraffin booties. Softened and moisturized, feet are ready to hit the ground running. Though it’s usually associated with relaxation, a full-body massage can also be an invigorating experience. At Graceful Services (1095 Second Ave., 2nd fl., 212.593.9904) in Midtown, practitioners provide a

unique, “deep and penetrating massage” that combines several techniques, including Swedish, Japanese shiatsu and Chinese tuina, says owner Grace Macnow. The latter two are intended to stimulate: Shiatsu involves the therapist applying pressure to key points along the body, using hands, fingers—and sometimes even her feet. Tuina incorporates such manipulations as pushing, pulling, rubbing, tapping and even light pinching at various pressure points. Both methods promote the flow of Qi—or the body’s natural “life energy”—by breaking up blockages that cause pain, tightness or soreness. Once these blockage points are opened, Macnow says, Qi flows unimpeded throughout the body and brings new vigor. Of course, sometimes the best way to get revved up is to slow down, and, like a computer, let the body reboot. That’s the philosophy of the Upper West Side spa Sphatika (1841 Broadway, 212.265.5885), whose Shanti Loka (“abode of peace” in Sanskrit) salon is dotted with undulating wicker chaise lounges and large, translucent crystals, giving clients the sense of visiting an exotic, tranquil universe.

treatment rooms, the Royal Signature Experience comprises the spa’s ultimate renewal service. It includes a gentle but invigorating body brushing, a 30-minute session in a sauna heated by far-infrared rays (super-powerful rays, at the long end of the electromagnetic spectrum), a deep-tissue massage with hemp oil, a steam canopy treatment and a lymphatic drainage facial with mineral mask. The overall effect of the three-hour experience is hypnotic: “The body enters a restful sleep-state, which turns on mechanisms within to heal itself,” explains Janet League-Katzin, director of Sphatika. Patrons leave feeling rejuvenated, as if they’ve had a sound night’s sleep—and glowing like a freshly polished pearl, as well. Gentlemen can have a rest-and-rejuvenation experience all their own with an old-fashioned shave, such as the one offered at F.S.C. Barber (8 Rivington St., 212.673.3209). A congenial place reminiscent of tonsorial parlors of yore (vintage barber chairs, mounted antlers and black-and-white photos on the walls), F.S.C. attracts Wall Street traders and Lower East Side artists alike with its walk-in-only policy and its leisurely straight-razor shave, which comes replete with hot towels, a lubricating pre-shave oil, shaving cream applied thickly with a brush and a bracing aftershave balm and moisturizer, using Baxter of California products (one of the first skin-care lines for men). For those hard-to-reach spots (along the jaw line or under the nose), F.S.C. barbers often use a traditional hot lather machine that produces a foamy cream, which softens the hairs, making them easier to cut and ensuring a super-close (but nick-free) shave. The experience leaves clients “revived, ready for the workday or weekend ahead,” says barbershop co-owner Sam Buffa. In contrast, the Power Facial (for either gender) at Exhale Mind Body Spa (150 Central Park South, 212.561.7400) has a takeno-prisoners approach to fatigued, lackluster skin. The facial starts with an exfoliating mask, followed by (depending on the client’s particular needs) either Cool Beam therapy, a treatment that uses an antibacterial light to spark collagen production, thereby softening fine lines, reducing inflammation and hydrating the skin; or an ultrasonic treatment, which uses sound waves to penetrate the pores and remove dull cells and excess oils, leaving skin looking and feeling revitalized and pristine. Exhale also offers exercise classes (which can be purchased individually) dedicated to “increased circulation, making you feel better and therefore look better,” says National Spa Director Laura Benge. The hourlong Core Fusion class, a mix of ballet barre routines, yoga, Pilates poses and hand weights, definitely sends the heart rate soaring and muscles burning. But because the



Mineral masks, a common feature of many facials, can give dull-looking skin a glow.

Slow down now to speed up later is the mantra behind Sphatika’s deep-rest treatments.

exercises are interspersed with stretches, classes end with clients feeling pleasantly energetic, rather than exhausted. Nothing suggests low energy like limp hair. For those interested in seriously fixing their follicles, the Philip Kingsley Trichological Centre (16 E. 52nd St., 212.753.9600) stands ready. “We consider scalp health fundamental to healthy hair growth,” says trichologist Elizabeth Phillips. To restore life to the locks, Phillips recommends the Stimulating Scalp Mask, which uses zinc, caffeine, camphor and peppermint to “increase stimulation and circulation to the skin,” and strengthen cell development. Another service, the Exfoliating Scalp Mask, works as a facial for the head, removing dead or flaky skin and moisturizing the scalp to ensure suppleness. Both treatments, Phillips says, leave the scalp and hair clearer, cleaner and more invigorated. British actor/author Stephen Fry once observed, “My teeth are clean. The sun shines. To hell with everything else.” Jan Linhart, D.D.S, P.C. (230 Park Ave., Ste. 1164, 212.682.5180) would agree. He has made the creation of healthy, beautiful smiles his mantra, with pearly whites being a particular specialty. After deciding he wasn’t satisfied with existing teeth-whitening methods, Dr. Linhart developed his own patented PearlinBrite® system, which incorporates several different types of proprietary lasers— selected depending on the nature and degree of discoloration—to engage the hydrogen peroxide molecules contained in bleaching gels, thus removing stains. Teeth become noticeably brighter in a single session. Treatments may be performed in the Continental Room, a palatial suite that includes state-of-the-art equipment, as well as a luxuriously appointed living room with a stocked pantry, HD televisions and a private bathroom. The advent of National Spa Week (Oct. 15-21)—when dozens of local spas and salons offer signature treatments for only $50—makes this month a particularly propitious time to embark on a personal autumn renaissance, a rejuvenation campaign from head to toe or anything in between. All the better to conquer the city and harvest all the seasonal delights that await.

ART & ANTIQUES galleries, antiques centers, collectibles, auctions ... The hippest galleries, art festivals and fairs, and where to browse, bid and buy.

Finding Foliage Granted, New York City isn’t the most bucolic getaway—but it does have lovely places to savor autumn’s crisp air and brilliant foliage, maintains Philip Accorso, concierge at the Millennium Broadway. On the Upper East Side, Carl Schurz Park, the site of Gracie Mansion, is “a great place to take a picnic,” Accorso says; its winding paths and gardens “make you feel like you might be somewhere upstate” (with only the gorgeous sight of the East River and Roosevelt Island to suggest otherwise). Central Park is also ablaze. Of special note is Harlem Meer (106th to 110th sts.), an 11-acre body of water that reflects the vibrant yellow ginkgo trees that ring it this time of year. In Brooklyn, Walt Whitman penned many a poem amid woodsy Fort Greene Park, and you can see what inspired him with a stroll along the Tree Trail, which has plaques identifying some 39 species, from A (American elm to Z (zelkova). Queens’ Astoria Park backs up its foliage with views of the Robert F. Kennedy (Triborough) Bridge and the nearby Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden, the oldest such bastion of brew in NYC. And even the TIPS FROM: concrete heart of Midtown offers “hidden treasures” Philip Accorso, Concierge, Millennium with its pocket parks tucked between skyscrapers, Broadway, 145 W. 44th notes Accorso.
