CHILINA KENNEDY RETURNS TO
BEAUTIFUL – THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL
SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

KARA LINDSAY JOINS THE COMPANY
AS ‘CYNTHIA WEIL’

Kara Lindsay, who mostly recently starred as Glinda in Wicked on Broadway, will join the company of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, playing the role of Cynthia Weil from September 12 – December 31, 2017Chilina Kennedy, Broadway’s longest-running ‘Carole King,’ returns to the title role on September 12, 2017. Broadway’s current Carole King, Abby Mueller, ends her run this Sunday, September 10.  Beautiful, which recently celebrated 1500th performances on Broadway, is now in its 4th smash year at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street).

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

Ticket prices for Beautiful range from $69 - $169 and are available for purchase via Telecharge.com, by calling 212-239-6200, or in person at the Sondheim Theatre box office. Beautiful plays the following schedule: Tuesdays at 7:00 PM, Wednesdays at 2:00 PM, Thursdays at 7:00 PM, Fridays at8:00 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM & 8:00 PM, and Sundays at 2:00 PM & 7:00 PM.

September 14 - September 23
STAR WARS…ENTIRELY FROM MEMORY
With Ryan Chittaphong, Tom Costello, Alyx Darensbourg, Ben Furnas, Willy Appelman, Claire Gresham, Clare McNulty, Molly Gaebe, Andy Schneeflock, Scott Thomas, Pete McElligott, and Zach Zirlin
Produced by Ten Bones
Schedule: Thursday - Saturday at 10 PM
Tickets: $10

Ten Bones Theatre Company puts actors in front of a room full of drunks and demands that they recreate the stories of “Star Wars” entirely from memory. The show is cast blindly in front of the audience, and after
that there are only three rules: They must incorporate lines written by the audience; they must incorporate any sound effect played by the host; one lucky audience member is given a horn that they may honk three times. Once honked, the performers must create a scene that makes perfect sense given where they are in the story but that has no business being in the story of Star Wars.

BALLET HISPÁNICO
School of Dance
School Year 2017-18
Classes Begin on September 11, 2017

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, announces that registration is available for classes during the 2017-18 school year.  Celebrating over 45 years of dance and culture, the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance is a leading center of excellence in dance education located at 167 W. 89th Street, NYC.

At the School of Dance, children learn in a nurturing and disciplined environment, discover dance as a language of ideas, and explore the rich history and aesthetics of Latino cultures. Under an internationally renowned faculty led by seasoned dance professional and School Director Michelle Manzanales, students are exposed to four signature training programs and a bevy of performance opportunities. Classes are set to live music and held at our studios located in Manhattan's Upper West Side. The School offers over $150,000 in annual scholarships to talented and need-based students.

Alumni of the School have gone on to prestigious conservatories such as Juilliard and LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts; to careers in theater (Nancy Ticotin), film (Jennifer Lopez) and television (Michael DeLorenzo); and to careers with leading dance companies such as Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Paul Taylor, ABT II, and the San Francisco Ballet. 


Los Pasitos Early Childhood Program (ages 2-5)
Ballet Hispánico's Los Pasitos early childhood program for ages 2-5 merges creativity, culture and technique. Its curriculum focuses on developing coordination, spatial awareness and musicality, with an emphasis on each child's unique self-expression. Students learn proper dance etiquette, explore the wide spectrum of Hispanic culture and build a solid foundation for dance training in a joyful environment. The Los Pasitos program helps students gain the following skills:
* Physical: Self-control, refinement of gross and fine motor skills, understanding of space and their bodies
* Social/Affective: Listening, responding, taking turns, working cooperatively
* Cognitive: Recognizing, recalling, identifying, differentiating and sequencing
* Aesthetic: Exposure to Hispanic culture, arts and language, expressing a preference for dance movements and style.

Encuentros Open Class Program (ages 6-18)
The Open Program at the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance offers something for everyone. Developed with the highest level of artistic excellence offered at any dance institution, our program supports the recreational dancer interested in taking one to three classes a week. With over 25 classes a week in a wide array of genres--from ballet and flamenco to hip-hop, salsa, and jazz--our students receive not only a thorough grounding in the primary techniques, but also specialized training in the rich and varied Latin American dance traditions, which for many is their cultural heritage.


La Academia: Pre-Professional Program (ages 7-23)
La Academia, Ballet Hispánico's Pre-Professional Program, is a unique intensive training system developed with the full spectrum of the Ballet Hispánico curriculum that aims to produce a well-rounded dancer. After ten years of training in the Pre-Professional Program, a dancer will possess: 
* superior classical technique founded in Cuban methodology, a specialty unique to Ballet Hispánico
* a strong understanding of contemporary forms to diversify and strengthen their education
* a musical and multicultural dance perspective to support a versatile career path.

La Academia: Professional Studies Program (Advanced level students)
Professional Studies--the highest and most challenging arm of La Academia, Ballet Hispánico's Pre-Professional Program--is designed to further the development of the advanced student in Classical Ballet, Flamenco and Contemporary forms. This subprogram is tailored for those students attending performing arts schools, those interested in college preparation for conservatory programs, and/or those pursuing a career in dance. Admission to Professional Studies is by audition only, and students have the option of pursuing the full curriculum or one of three specialized tracks-Ballet, Flamenco or Contemporary. Performance skills are honed through exposure to repertory and preparation for a year-end recital.

LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS begins performances on Thursday, October 19, 2017 and officially opens on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.

LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS marks Emmy winner John Leguizamo’s highly-anticipated return to Broadway, following acclaimed engagements at The Public Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theater. Directed by Tony Taccone (Wishful Drinking, Bridge & Tunnel), LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS is written and performed by Leguizamo.

In LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS John Leguizamo schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny, satirical one-man play about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past. 

Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son’s American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 95 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style.
