Amateur Night at the Apollo is live entertainment with a history. This weekly talent competition began in 1934 and within months became a leading showcase for emerging performers. Among its early winners was a 15-year-old Ella Fitzgerald. Since then the series has launched the careers of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
Today Amateur Night attracts performers and audiences from around the world. Audience members, known for their toughness and expectation that contestants "be good or be gone," gleefully choose the winners.
BAMcafé Live is a free weekly performance series, featuring a mix of live music in a bar and lounge space. Performances span jazz, R&B, Afro-pop, Latin, rock, experimental music, and spoken-word poetry. Duncan Sheik, Billy Martin, Survival Soundz, Tracie Morris, and Carl Hancock Rux are among the series' alums.
Coffeehouse Chronicles #145 honors the career of María Irene Fornés with panelists, live performances, and material from the La MaMa Archives. Moderated by Gwendolyn Alker, the panelists include Gabriel Berry, Migdalia Cruz, Donald Eastman, Robert Heide, Morgan Jenness, Michelle Memran, and Didi O'Connell. The performers include Sheila Dabney, Rebecca Schull, Lily Lipman, Aidan Hart, and Kayla Juntilla. They re-create parts of Mud (directed by Omri Ariav and introduced by Tyaela Nieves) and Reba's monologue from What of the Night.
Coffeehouse Chronicles is a free educational performance series exploring the history and development of off-off-Broadway from its inception within the Village "Coffeehouse Theaters" of the 1960s through today. Part artist portrait, part creative event, part history lesson, part community forum, the program's mission is to provide a home, as did La MaMa founder Ellen Stewart, for personal and intimate engagement with art.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
The Down Town Glee Club continues to celebrate its 90 years of men's choral singing with Jingle All the Way, performing standards, folk songs, and holiday favorites, as well as honoring its roots and those who've given so much of themselves to ensure the success and continuation of this hallmark of the New York City cultural scene. In addition, this concert features musical guests: wonderful soloists, instrumentalists, and a composer who's created two brand-new all-male arrangements of original Christmas songs!
Make plans now to join New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players' artistic director Albert Bergeret and his talented and fun-loving crew for their annual New Year's Eve champagne gala performance of favorite Gilbert & Sullivan scenes, songs, parodies, overtures, and the ever-popular-tour-de-force challenge — audience requests performed impromptu with full orchestra. Toast the new year at intermission and be off home or to another party before midnight!
Discover the secrets of your favorite neighborhood or museum on a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt. You won't be collecting objects (put back that statue!) but searching for answers to tricky and humorous questions. You can decipher a message in the sky in Central Park, find out what to do with a "fun goon" in Chinatown, track ghosts in Greenwich Village, solve a murder mystery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and much more. No knowledge of any hunt location is required — you just need a sharp mind and a good pair of shoes.
