@New World Stages

Already a crowd-pleasing hit among critics and audiences, the off-Broadway musical “Americano!” continues its successful run at the New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) with nightly performances thru June 19th. Directed by Michael Barnard with lyrics by Barnard, Jonathan Rosenberg and Fernanda Santos, the musical is a vigorous celebration on the pursuit for the American dream, seen through the experiences of a DREAMer who is challenged by his immigration status when he decides to enlist in the Marine and learns he is undocumented. Conceived and presented by Quixote Productions, it tells the true story of Tony Valdovinos, who was brought to America at the age of 2, and inspired by the attacks of 9/11 decides to do something to protect the country he embraced as home. The cast includes Sean Ewing (“West Side Story”, “Amazing Grace”) in the role of the protagonist, and Legna Cedillo, Yassmin Alers and others. (Photo credit: Maria Baranova.)

@The Joyce Theater

Celebrating its 50th anniversary season, the acclaimed company Trisha Brown Dance Company will dominate the stage of the historic The Joyce Theater, 175 8th Avenue, with a double-bill special program running May 24 thru 29. The show, which was postponed due to the Pandemic, will highlight the collaborative work of choreographer Trisha Brown and visual artist Robert Rauschenberg. Their rich creative process, extracting inspiration from each other, has resulted in several masterpieces that investigate the connection between dance and visual innovation. The Joyce season will feature two of those collaborations: the elegant and mysterious, gesture-inspired “Foray Foret” with original costumes signed by Rauschenberg, and the serene and highly physical “Astral Converted” featuring the exceptional metal frame towers that sensors the dancers’ movements. Tickets start at $10. (Photo: Foray Forêt. Credit: Julieta Cervantes. Dancers (l-r) Laurel Jenkins, Tamara Riewe, Dai Jian, Elena Demyanenko). INFO: www.Joyce.org

Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas collected stories and voices that shape this unique landscape, articulating the ways in which they have been historically affected by the built environment.
