Burn This

(Previews begin March 15, 2019, opens April 16, 2019)

The sudden death of a gay dancer brings together two strangers—the dancer’s older brother, played by Adam Driver, and his choreographer/roommate, played by Keri Russell in her Broadway debut. A combustible sexual attraction leads to a deeper love connection in the revival of Lanford Wilson’s 1987 play, directed by Michael Mayer.

Café Carlyle

Since opening in 1955, the intimate Upper East Side cabaret has set the standard for sophisticated entertainment in an elegant setting. A Who’s Who of entertainers have spun their magic here, including such legends as Bobby Short, Elaine Stritch, Eartha Kitt and Hildegarde.

Today’s lineup continues the tradition and can run the gamut from Broadway baby Sutton Foster to folk superstar Judy Collins. Screenwriter/director Woody Allen takes a holiday from his day job and plays jazz clarinet on most Monday nights in the fall, winter and spring.
