Henri and Sonia are putting their son to bed when Hubert and Ines arrive for dinner…a day earlier than expected. Yasmina Reza's play, elegantly translated by Christopher Hampton, blends cruel observations with high comedy in a hilarious and poignant examination of our most personal intimacies and private longings. We see three versions of the same socially hapless evening in which the characters change subtly each time, providing a dramatically different outcome for each.


LIFE x3 begins performances onTuesday, November 20 for a limited engagement through Saturday, December 8.  Press opening is Sunday, November 25 at 3 PM.  The performance schedule is Wednesday – Saturday at 7:30 PM; Sunday at 3 PMThere is an added performance on Tuesday, November 21 at 7:30 PM; there are no performances on Wednesday, November 22 Thursday, November 23, and Friday, November 24 for Thanksgiving.

He joins Lincoln Center Moments with his band for an afternoon of classic salsa.

These first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Tonight, they kick off the holiday season at Lincoln Center with a free show at the David Rubenstein Atrium as part of the Lincoln Square BID’s Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square celebration.
