  1. ???????Hoping for a quick windfall of inheritance, Abe (Jon Dalin), a Wall Street stock jock, returns to the office of his recently deceased, estranged father searching for a lost deed. Among the piles of papers strewn about the office he doesn't find the deed. Instead he finds a scavenger hunt his father has left behind for him - and the audience holds the clues.
  2. A stroll outside of Madison Square Garden following a family-oriented show typically includes two things: lots of character-inspired costumes, and lots of smiling faces, children and adults alike. When PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure makes a tour stop at the Hulu Theater this upcoming weekend, we'll see that same joy flooding out of the Garden. Performer Kelsey Krull from PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure spoke with BroadwayWorld about bringing these animated pups to life for audiences from all over.
  3. After a successful weekend of preview performances, INDEPENDENCE opens on March 21st at 7pm and has additional performances on March 24th at 8pm, March 25th at 2pm & 7pm, and March 26th at 7pm. 
  4. Often described as an off-Broadway (or off-off Broadway) version of Encores!, Musicals Tonight! presents its 100th and final production, CALAMITY JANE: A MUSICAL WESTERN, at the Lion Theater. Currently in its 20th season, the series received a Village Voice Obie award and grant in 2004. Unlike other revivals which substantially alter old musicals to appeal to modern audiences, Mel Miller's brainchild and labor of love allows a new generation to enjoy the lesser-known works of Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, and the Gerswhins, among others, in their original form. Full disclosure: I have no use for Westerns in any genre (including literature) and find Oklahoma impossibly hokey and tedious. (I do like 'O What a Beautiful Morning.') The characters and plot of this by-comparison unknown musical are to me far more interesting than Oklahoma! Don't buy a ticket to CALMITY JANE: A MUSICAL WESTERN because it's the final installment of Musicals Tonight!. Buy a ticket because it's a worthy musical skillfully rendered by a strong cast.  
  5. The Kitchen presents a multimedia project from Charles Atlas, continuing the institution's nearly 45-year relationship with the video art pioneer. In The Kitchen's gallery, two new video installations take a retrospective look at Atlas' work while offering a counterpoint to his interactive 2003 show Instant Fame! and its portraits of downtown figures (March 28-May 12).
