A really cool reimagining of As You Like It is playing at Baruch College's Performing Arts Center. It's called Arden/Everywhere and it features professional actors alongside people from NYC's refugee and immigrant communities in its cast. With 65 million displaced people on our planet right now, Arden/Everywhere challenges you to see Shakespeare's centuries-old text through the lens of what it means to call a place "home" in 2017.
As a cool bonus to celebrate the international spirit of the production, the lobby of the theater includes a "portal" (similar to a photo booth) where you can full body live chat with people in other countries. This opens up a dialogue about refugees and immigration before the show even begins!
Check out pictures from the show by Russell Rowland.
Runs until October 28.

In his unflinchingly honest one-man show Saved, Jeremy Zenor strikes a universal chord of insightful contemplation as he shares stories and songs of the moments that helped shape him. Through animated characters and introspective storytelling, he finds humor and healing in abandoning his father's faith and navigating romance in the dawning of the post 9-11 era. Playing multiple instruments simultaneously, Jeremy will present his songs as a one man band as part of the United Solo Theater Festival, the largest solo performance festival in the world. Go with Jeremy on the journey as he discovers that we are not actually saved from the from the struggles of our live, but instead saved *by* them.

Playwright James Walsh's semi-autobiographical new play Jimmy and Carolyn is playing at the Queens Theatre in the Park this month.
1. The theatre's in one of the prettiest parks in New York City! One of the most historic, too. And it's the perfect romantic destination, with lots of photo ops, like in front of the enormous silver globe fountain -- the one you always see when you're stuck in traffic on the LIE!
2. The play's a family comedy that will make your family -- and your potential in-laws! -- seem like cake by comparison. Laughing your ass off at someone else's crazy family will do wonders for any relationship.
3. The neighborhood is a Mecca of cheap delicious eats that won't bust your wallet. Or better yet, surprise your date with a pre-show picnic in the park! It's September. Enjoy the weather while it lasts!
4. Show off your true New Yorker self by seeing a great play before it becomes the next Hamilton.
5. Ticket prices won't break your bank. With dinner and a few drinks, the whole evening won't cost you more than fifty bucks. So, surprise him or her with flowers!
