The Glass Menagerie Play


Ruth Stage is thrilled to present a chilling new take on Tennessee Williams' seminal play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, directed by Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch.

After two critically acclaimed runs in 2018 of Wars of the Roses, directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reunite with actor Matt de Rogatis to take on the American classic, The Glass Menagerie. In this disquieting production, the tormented Tom (de Rogatis) relives the story of his time in the Wingfields St. Louis apartment, circa 1939, as if he were remembering it through the lens of a spooky dream.

The cast, led by Ginger Grace as the iconic Amanda Wingfield, consists of Matt de Rogatis as her son Tom Wingfield, Alexandra Rose as Laura Wingfield, and Spencer Scott as The Gentleman Caller.

Set designer Jessie Bonaventure, who was the assistant set designer on the Broadway musical Hadestown, which garnered four Tony Awards, including Best Scenic Design, collaborates with lighting designer Steven Wolf to create a version of this Tennessee Williams masterpiece that borders on horror.

Dimly lit and surrealistic, the set itself will consist of props made of glass and the actors will live in a chilling, dreamlike world. Taking inspiration from the The Exorcist soundtrack, Sean Haggerty writes the score for this Wes Craven meets Tennessee Williams production.

Garden of Madness

Tomorrowland Presents: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ‘Garden of Madness’ at the New York Expo Center on November 2nd

In partnership with Tomorrowland, the famed Belgian event will make its United States debut with an exclusive show at The New York Expo Center (1110 Oak Point Ave, Bronx, NY) on Saturday, November 2nd with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike at this year's only Garden of Madness event in the country. The event is being co-produced by DEG Presents & Fearhouse NYC. Additional special guests to be announced. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 3rd and to sign up for pre-sale visit, https://www.gardenofmadnessnyc.com/.

Over the past 6 years brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have carved themselves into the history of electronic music with show-after-show of jaw dropping stage presence and performances. Launched back in 2016, and formerly known as Bringing The Madness, the duo’s end of year Garden of Madness homecoming extravaganza has become something of a must-do event in the December clubbing calendar for hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world. For 2019 the brothers will be back with Tomorrowland Presents Garden of Madness. Expect mammoth sized shenanigans with the levels of insanity turned up to gargantuan.

“It’s been amazing building this brand over the past 6 years together with Tomorrowland…to now further expand all over the world is a dream come true," said Dimitri Vegas.

"It's really exciting to be working with Nick and the Tomorrowland team. They're absolute professionals. New York City is in for a real treat on Halloween weekend," said DEG Presents President Eddie Dean.

A long-established concept that has been an integral part of Tomorrowland festival since 2014, Garden of Madness has also had three triumphant seasons at Ushuaia Ibiza with its weekly Tuesday residency. Following what has been a wildly successful period in Tomorrowland and Garden of Madness history, which has seen both brands collaborate to celebrate the Tomorrowland festivals 15 years, the entire team behind both events want to close 2019 in the most mind-blowing way possible. With that in mind, every aspect of the Garden of Madness concept’s detail and curation are being meticulously reviewed and redesigned to ensure that each arena show goes above and beyond any and all expectations.

After the US show, the production team behind Tomorrowland will cross the Atlantic landing in Liverpool for a special show at the Steel Yard on December 7th. In partnership with Creamfields and taking charge of one of the festivals most iconic and respectable stages in the Steel Yard, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will bring a bigger and bolder show than ever seen before. The tour will then conclude at the Sportpaleis Antwerp arena on 20th and 21st December in what is set to be an unmissable show aligned with a string of special guests and numerous eye-opening surprises.

Devotees of the Garden of Madness mantra can still expect Amare (the much-loved eagle) to be a central fixture at all shows. So please, join us to close the chapter on 2019 and celebrate another year of crazy parties as Tomorrowland Presents Garden of Madness 2019.

In Mel Brooks’ words, it was an “avalanche of Jews” who infused the world of performing arts with the vim, vigor, and talent that continues to characterize the industry today. The Museum explores and celebrates the history of Jews coming to America and becoming American Jews; their indelible influence on entertainment is just one compelling aspect of that story.

He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (and also received the Johnny Mercer Award), and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He holds Doctorates from NYU and the North Carolina School of the Arts. His upcoming projects include the Live Version of The Little Mermaid film and the Off Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horror.

ROBERTA BERKEN has served as a docent at the Museum at Eldridge Street for more than 19 years. Her extensive knowledge of Lower East Side history and the Museum serves her well as Master Docent, where she advises and trains new docents to lead tours and guide visitors through the Museum’s landmark building, the National Historic Landmark 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue. Roberta holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College and a Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. She is a certified diplomate in Social Work for the State of New York, and served as the Social Work Coordinator at Huntington Hospital where she evaluated, coordinated and provided services for Oncology, Psychiatric and Dialysis patients and their families.

NY Philharmonic Fall Gala with Lang Lang


New York Philharmonic
Fall Gala Concert

David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center

Monday, October 7, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Jaap van Zweden, conductor
Lang Lang, piano

BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 2
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5

Music Director Jaap van Zweden will conduct the New York Philharmonic Fall Gala Concert, October 7, 2019, celebrating the Philharmonic’s 178th season with an all-Beethoven program featuring pianist Lang Lang as soloist. The program will feature Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and Symphony No. 5.

Lang Lang last appeared with the New York Philharmonic in October 2016. The Los Angeles Times called his May 2019 performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic “spectacular, and something people may well be talking about for years…. joy was the true hallmark of this approach. Lang Lang phrased every small gesture as an observer of the music, not just as a maker…. In this concerto … a feisty Beethoven muscularized the Mozartean model, a young Turk showing the Viennese public who the next emperor would be, and that is exactly the energy that Lang Lang brought.”

The Fall Gala will honor outgoing Philharmonic Chairman Oscar S. Schafer and his wife, Didi, for their remarkable commitment to the New York Philharmonic as the most generous donors in the Philharmonic’s history. The black-tie event will include a pre-concert champagne reception on the David Geffen Hall Grand Promenade from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., the concert at David Geffen Hall at 7:30 p.m., and a dinner immediately following the performance at the David H. Koch Theater. The Fall Gala Co-Chairmen are Judy and Russell Carson, Michele and Martin Cohen, Marijke and Lodewijk de Vink, Misook and Harry Doolittle, Sharon and Lawrence Hite, Ann and Charles Johnson, Leni and Peter May, Elizabeth and Frank Newman, and Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar L. Tang. Generous underwriting support is provided by Daria L. and Eric J. Wallach.

Jaap van ZwedenLang LangNew York Philharmonic

Single tickets to the Fall Gala Concert start at $79. Tickets to the New York Philharmonic performances may be purchased online at nyphil.org or by calling (212) 875-5656, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday; 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 5:00 p.m. Sunday. Tickets may also be purchased at the David Geffen Hall Box Office. The Box Office opens at 10:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and at noon on Sunday.
