Monthly Mashup for April, 2018 Me: Macy's Flower Show 2018 and Mom: Maureen McGovern at Birdland Jazz Club

We may have been given free tickets to one or more of the below mentioned venues for free for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

 
 
Me - My topic for this month is Macy's Flower Show. We recently went to Macy's yearly flower show. It was a lot of fun. The theme was fairytales. However, it wasn't real fairytales. It was just one made up for the flower show. There were different parts of the story located at different parts of the exhibit. There were pages from books with flowers attached hanging from the wall. There was a dragon breathing fire but the fire was flowers. It was really cool! There was a tree with a face. There was a waterfall with flowers. A lot of the flowers were purple and they were really pretty. There was a cart that said Traveler. It had flowers in it too. In the window of the store they had animal shaped bushes. There was a bunny, a bird,  and a frog. There was a giant snow globe. You could go inside it, and there was confetti to throw around, and they took a video so it looked like you were really in  a snow globe. On the whole, it was beautiful and fun.

Mom - My topic for this month is Maureen McGovern's concert at Birdland. I recently had the opportunity to attend my first concert at New York City's famous Birdland Jazz Club. The venue was great. It is located right in the heart of midtown at 44th Street between 8th and 9th.  It was small although it seemed much bigger and more spacious than some other similar venues I have visited. Unlike at other venues, they did not seat people at tables with other people whom they don't know, and they even had small tables for one. However, the show was not a full house so I am not sure if this would still be true if it were. There was a $10.00 food and drink minimum per person at the club. However, this is very reasonable compared to some of the other clubs in the New York City area. The food was good although I only had the dessert. The show was delightful. Although, Ms. McGovern did not really sing a lot of the songs she is known for or any of the songs from the Broadway shows she was in, it was still an enjoyable show. The songs were mostly well known recognizable songs including a number of songs from shows and/or movies. The set included a medley of Disney songs and a medley of Wizard of Oz songs. Her voice sounded nice, and she had a good rapport with the audience. The highlight of the concert by far was when she ended the show with a rendition of arguably her most famous hit, The Morning After, the theme song fromThe Poseidon Adventure. All in all, it was a very nice evening in a engaging venue.

Seedfolks

May  4 -11

From Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Children’s Theatre Company comes Seedfolks, making its Off-Broadway Premiere at The New Victory Theater from May 4 - 11, 2018. Based on the book by Newbery Medal-winning Paul Fleischman (Joyful Noise) and directed by Children’s Theatre Company Artistic Director Peter C. Brosius (TCG’s Alan Schneider Directors’ Award), the many diverse characters of an immigrant neighborhood are brilliantly brought to life by Ivey Award-winning actress Sonja Parks.

In Seedfolks, which was selected from 800 plays to represent the United States at the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People’s World Congress in 2017, audiences will meet the fascinating residents of Gibb Street.

Thalia's Book Club
Wendy Maas and Rebecca Steadman
"Bob"

Symphony Space’s highly interactive Thalia Kids’ Book Club series, produced in cooperation with Bank Street Bookstore, unites avid readers with the authors, illustrators, and books that inspire their imaginations. Each event includes a creative writing project, a discussion with the audience, a performance from the book, and a book-signing. The 2017-18 Thalia Kids’ Book Club season concludes with a visit from a pair of New York Times best-selling authors, who will share the story of their collaboration on a new novel.

Two masterminds of middle-grade fiction, Wendy Mass (The Candymakers) and Rebecca Stead (Goodbye Stranger), team up for the first time on Bob, a magical story about growing up and the enduring power of friendship between a young girl and an unusual creature.

It’s been five years since Livy and her family have visited Livy’s grandmother in Australia. Now that she’s back, Livy has the feeling she’s forgotten something really, really important about Gran’s house. It turns out she’s right. Bob, a short, greenish creature dressed in a chicken suit, didn’t forget Livy, or her promise. He’s been waiting five years for her to come back, hiding in a closet like she told him to. He can’t remember who—or what—he is, where he came from, or if he even has a family. But five years ago Livy promised she would help him find his way back home. Now it’s time to keep that promise. Clue by clue, Livy and Bob will unravel the mystery of where Bob comes from, and discover the kind of magic that lasts forever.

The interactive event is appropriate for ages 8 and up.

ARTSCONNECTION AND DEAR EVAN HANSEN
ENTER SECOND YEAR OF CONTINUING PARTNERSHIP
TO BRING NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL
STUDENT ARTISTS
TO THE TONY AWARD-WINNING MUSICAL

PRODUCER AND OWNER OF SAN FRANCISCO’S CURRAN THEATRE
CAROLE SHORENSTEIN HAYS

Producer Stacey Mindich is pleased to announce that Dear Evan Hansen will continue its partnership with ArtsConnection, NYC’s leading arts-in-education organization, for a second year, thanks to the funding of producer and owner of San Francisco’s Curran theatre, Carole Shorenstein Hays. This ongoing initiative, named ‘ART2ART – DEAR EVAN HANSEN,’ has brought hundreds of NYC public high school students to see the Tony & Grammy Award-winning musical. 

Before attending Dear Evan Hansen, students participate in a workshop held by representatives from the cast and creative team of Dear Evan Hansen, during which they explore the relevant and very real themes within the show. The students use this time to prepare for not only the viewing of the show but also for the creative process of making art. Following the performance, each student expresses his/her response to the show by creating an original work of visual art.  Upon completion, the students join the Dear Evan Hansencompany for a celebration at Sardi’s, where their art is on display for the occasion. The works are also included in a curated online gallery (http://art2art.dearevanhansen.com/), and select pieces are displayed throughout Dear Evan Hansen’s Broadway home, the Music Box Theatre. Cast members even choose selections for their dressing rooms. To watch a video highlighting the ART2ART experience, please click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFTiFtRx3xw.

Students throughout New York City are eligible to apply to participate in ART2ART.  From its applicant pool, fifty students will be chosen to participate in each session. This program will be offered four times during the 2018-19 season, and the resulting artwork will be preserved as part of a growing online gallery.

Atrium 360°
Imarhan
Led by Sadam, the youngest member of the trailblazing band Tinariwen, Imarhan is one of the best emerging Tuareg bands in Algeria. Reflecting both the members’ cultural and generational background, the band’s dry guitar riffs, pop melodies, and pan-African rhythms draw on traditional Tuareg music, African ballads, and the modern pop and rock music they heard growing up. The band’s “ear-opening” debut album (Guardian, U.K.) set out to dismantle preconceived notions about Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians finds a calm and passionate soul in sumptuous slow burners, and compositions of uncommon complexity.

Triskelion Arts, in association with Vangeline Theater and The New York Butoh Institute, presents Yumiko Yoshioka in 100 Light Years of Solitude onTuesday, May 1, 2018 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts, Muriel Schulman Theater, 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222.

Butoh Master Yumiko Yoshioka performs 100 Light Years of Solitude, the second part of her trilogy 100 Flowers. The work is inspired by Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and explores a state of solitude through Butoh. Yumiko Yoshioka is a Japanese Butoh dancer and choreographer from Japan/ Germany. She is a former member of Ariadone, the first female Butoh company, which was founded by Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda in 1974. 

In 100 Light Years of Solitude, Yumiko dances the life of a unique creature, born on a planet 100 light years away from ours. Imagining that this creature is the only one of its species on that planet, it enjoys unfolding its life until it realizes its destiny: to exist in solitude.
