Museums | Outsider on the Inside: Photographs from 1958 to 2008, NYC (in-person)


Bruce Davidson: Outsider on the Inside brings together more than a hundred photographs by legendary Magnum Photos member, Bruce Davidson. Ranging from study prints to rare vintage items, the exhibited works showcase Davidson’s singular ability to chronicle unmediated instances of candor and emotion activated by New York urban space. Throughout his career, Davidson has used his camera to record the stories of communities at the periphery of mainstream society. In the historic Brooklyn Gang (1959), East 100th Street (1970), Subway (1980) and Central Park (1995) photo-essays, the American photographer demonstrates his readiness to shape behind-the-lens relationships with his subjects into unapologetically honest depictions of human nature.

Theater | Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet: One of His Finest Plays (virtual)


Proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family's humble Irish origins. When his daughter, Mary, falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con's pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World. Eugene O'Neill completed the play in 1942 but it was not performed until 1958, after his death. It has been produced on Broadway four times. Directed by Ciaran O'Reilly With Belle Aykroyd, Ciaran Byrne, Robert Cuccioli, Kate Forbes, Mary McCann, Andy Murray, David O'Hara, Tim Ruddy, David Sitler, and John C. Vennema

Discussion | I'm Your Woman (2020): Rachel Brosnahan, Director and Writer in Conversation (virtual)


Suburban housewife Jean (Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends his wife Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld. A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I'm Your Woman is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood – and what it takes to claim your life as your own. Join the conversation with director Julia Hart, writer Jordan Horowitz and star Rachel Brosnahan. Moderated by Jim Hemphill.
