Hot Tickets: New York

09 Dec

Every Friday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the New York area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Friday, December 9 CARAVAN OF THIEVES; guest Christian Evans  Stretching the parameters of acoustic swing, Caravan Of Thieves has been winning immediate praise for their new and unique brand of gypsy flavored song writing and their high intensity show. The vocal harmonizing, acoustic guitar-spanking husband and wife duo, Fuzz & Carrie, have extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson, to complete their colorful vision. Seeking inspiration from beyond the great divide, the quartet produces layers of Beatlesque vocals, driving rhythms, satirical, dramatic song writing and an overall circus of sound.

Saturday, December 10 dinner with True Friends  Once a month, Vérité Catering invites individuals in need of a friend, whether you are new to the city, new to a plant-based diet or simply want good company. They host a five course dinner, limited to 12 guests. A percentage of the ticket price is donated to a charity that will be decided at the end of the dinner by all attending. The menu will be posted one week before dinner, and is based on what is in season.

Saturday, December 10The Scenic Route presents Improvised Tennessee Williams  The Scenic Route Improv Troupe is excited to bring two 1/2 hour plays improvised in the style of Tennessee Williams. The focus is on attempting to create a theatrical experience that moves the audience. You will likely laugh along the way, but crying is permitted, too.

Sunday, December 11RHINESTONE GORILLA BURLESQUE  From barely legal to legally bare, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York’s ragtag team of art school rejects. Recent graduates all, the Rhinestone Gorillas continue to shout their anti-academic critiques, this time onstage, with their clothes off. The troupe is governed by one simple rule: all bad ideas must be acted upon. Heralded as “dangerous-minded and infectious” and “the future of burlesque” (The San Francisco Burlesque Review), The Rhinestone Gorillas are not your average showgirls; they’re rhinestones in the rough, anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice.

Tuesday, December 13 – Manhattan (3D) – 1920 Bitwa Warszawska  “1920. THE WORLD’S MOST IMPORTANT BATTLE” is Polish megaproduction about one of the world’s most important battles which saved Europe from a global communist revolution. It portrays a miracoulous and heroic victory of Polish army over the Vistula River. The battle lost by a powerful Red Army put an end to the Lenin’s dreams of conquering the whole continent. The movie is a pictoresque epic story of love in the time of war. This grand scale production brings to memory the best pictures of the genre like “Gone with the Wind” and “War and Peace.” The fictional characters intertwine with great historical figures including Marshall Jozef Pilsudski, Lenin, Stalin or Trotsky.
“1920. THE WORLD’S MOST IMPORTANT BATTLE” is released in 3D, becoming the first stereoscopic live action production in Europe.
