Play | The Niceties: A Play by Manhattan Theatre Club (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


An ambitious young Black college student and her esteemed white professor meet over Skype to discuss a paper the college junior is writing about the American Revolution. Unfortunately, they find it hard to agree about the facts of the past - or the present. Discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation, and soon they're in dangerous territory neither of them had foreseen - and facing stunning implications that can't be undone. The New York Times hails it as "a bristling, provocative debate play about race and privilege in the United States." Written by Eleanor Burgess and directed by Kimberly Senior. The presentation reunites the original stars Lisa Banes (Broadway: Rumors, High Society, Arcadia, Accent on Youth, Present Laughter) and Jordan Boatman, updated for the virtual stage since its original production in MTC's 2018-2019 Season. The streaming is available until Jun 13th.

Discussion | Talking Climate: Law (virtual)


The word ‘law’ comes from the Old Norse for ‘something laid down or fixed.’ But the law, like the society that authors it in hope of stability, is in fact always in flux. It changes in response to emergent or newly recognized crises and struggles, even as it shapes their course. The two defining and interlinked crises of our time—climate and inequality—have generated countless legal developments. In Talking Climate: Law, an interdisciplinary panel will examine some of the most critical and think together about their meaning for climate justice and progress.

Classical Music | String Quartet Performs Silent Earth (virtual)


This world premiere of "Silent Earth" by Sergio Cervetti (b. 1940) is part of Axiom Quartet's ongoing dedication to commissioning new works by major American composers. Based in Houston TX, Axiom is known for their diverse approaches to the string quartet repertoire and champions works from all genres, regions, and time periods. In three movements, "Silent Earth" is Cervetti's meditation on the planetary crisis humanity faces and a lamentation on our inability to act. In three movements the work juxtaposes a wide gamut of emotions that come from grappling with the sheer enormity of global warming and climate change.
