Win Tickets to Must-See LYPSINKA!

Win Tickets to Must-See LYPSINKA!

New York certainly isn’t all it used to be — but what (or who) is these days? Lypsinka comes to mind. After an absence of nine long years, John Epperson’s masterful melting pot of gender illusion, golden age Hollywood glam, highly skilled lip-synching and diva deification is back on the East Village boards. In repertory […]

Tributes ‘Mark’ Twain’s Birth

Tributes ‘Mark’ Twain’s Birth

BY SCOTT STIFFLER  |  He wasn’t the first person to pilot a Mississippi riverboat, go west, travel abroad, lose fortunes, give lectures or loathe Congress — but under the pen name of Mark Twain, Samuel Langhorne Clemens wrote about all of that, and more, in a manner that’s been greatly admired, widely copied and rarely […]

All Around Town, In Squares

All Around Town, In Squares

BY SCOTT STIFFLER  |  A product of steady hands and a keen eye for the built environment’s capacity to both amaze and overwhelm, Erin Wilson’s “Color Stories” has a backstory familiar to anyone whose residency is tied to their destiny. “It wasn’t my specific goal to live in and make quilts about the city,” says the […]

The Lyp Returns

The Lyp Returns

BY DAVID NOH  |  It’s incredible, but Lypsinka, that whirling dervish of illusion and the highest imaginable camp — whom I consider as essential a New York figure as the Statue of Liberty — hasn’t been on a local stage in nine years. This has been happily remedied with “Lypsinka! The Trilogy,” running through January […]

She Breathes Life Into The Undead

She Breathes Life Into The Undead

BY SEAN EGAN  |  Just like it’s namesake monster, it appears the vampire flick can’t be killed. Reaching market saturation seems impossible for these movies, so major studios and indie auteurs alike continue to pump out new vampiric variations at a steady clip. This is usually achieved by appending (increasingly strange) subgenre labels to the […]

Exhibit Charts Luxury Building Workers’ Struggle to Join Union

BY EILEEN STUKANE  |  Working for subpar wages and limited benefits in luxury buildings whose units often sell for over $1 million, a group of service workers have spent the past two years engaged in public and behind-the-scenes efforts to join the 32BJ Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Documentation of that ongoing struggle has been […]

Mystico’s Thanksgiving Horoscopes

Mystico’s Thanksgiving Horoscopes

Aquarius  Making the turkey dance during dinner prep is fun, but forcing it to twerk will forever warp your notion of an acceptable Thanksgiving tradition. Pisces  Like cranberry sauce and Macy’s Parade clowns, certain things you have long disdained deserve a rethink. Aries  A second slice of delicious pie is denied by your proud refusal […]

Jerry Tallmer, 93, Wrote With Heart About The Soul

Jerry Tallmer, 93, Wrote With Heart About The Soul

BY SCOTT SITFFLER  |  When a theater critic passes away, those in his workplace orbit don’t normally rush to pen glowing testimonials. Most of them simply aren’t moved to do so, while the rest are too busy jockeying for position on the graveyard backhoe. The reaction to Jerry Tallmer’s death was, like his work, beyond […]
