Hell’s Kitchen And New York Liberty Host Block Party At Block Party

Published

on

The new musical Hell’s Kitchen will be the presenting sponsor of the New York Liberty’s game today July 16th. As a celebration of New York culture, Hell’s Kitchen and the New York Liberty will host a free open-to-the-public Block Party for fans on Tuesday, July 16 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. on the Ticketmaster Plaza at Barclays Center. The New York Liberty continue to underscore their intentional focus to bring together its passionate community and fanbase.

To emphasize the unique intersection of sport and theater, the Block Party will include a meet and greet with select cast members of Hell’s Kitchen, special performances from the New York Liberty Entertainment team and the Brooklyn Elite Jumpers Double Dutch, exclusive giveaways from Keys Soulcare and American Express, food vendors and more!

The festivities will continue during the New York Liberty’s game against the Connecticut Sun, where the Liberty aim to build upon the historic momentum experienced throughout the 2024 WNBA season. During the game, there will be a special halftime performance choreographed by Hell’s Kitchen’s choreographer Camille A. Brown and associate chorographer Rickey Tripp featuring the New York Liberty mascot, Ellie the Elephant, and dance team, as well as an on-court giveaway where two fans will have the chance to win tickets to an upcoming Hell’s Kitchen performance.

Ali is a 17-year-old girl full of fire – searching for freedom, passion and her place in the world. How she finds them is a New York City coming-of-age story you’ve never felt before – Hell’s Kitchen, a new musical from 16-time Grammy® Award winner Alicia Keys, whose songs and experiences growing up in NY inspire a story made for Broadway.

Rebellious and stifled by an overprotective single mother, Ali is lost until she meets her mentor: a neighbor who opens her heart and mind to the power of the piano. Set to the rhythm of the 90s, Hell’s Kitchen is a love story between a mother and daughter.  It’s about finding yourself, your purpose, and the community that lifts you. Come remember where dreams begin.

The “powerhouse cast” is led by Tony Award® winner Maleah Joi Moon, Shoshana Bean, Brandon Victor Dixon, Tony Award® winner Kecia Lewis and Chris Lee. Hell’s Kitchen is directed by four-time Tony Award® nominee Michael Greif, with choreography by four-time Tony Award nominee Camille A. Brown, a book by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Kristoffer Diaz – and the music of Keys, featuring new songs and her greatest hits.

The Hell’s Kitchen Original Broadway Cast Recording is available now via Alicia Keys Records/Interscope Records on streaming and digital platforms worldwide with a physical release to follow.

Hell’s Kitchen lottery tickets are available through a digital lottery the day before the performance at rush.telecharge.com. The digital lottery opens at rush.telecharge.com at 12AM (ET) one day before the performance with winners announced that same morning at 10AM (ET), with a second announcement of additional winners that afternoon at 3PM (ET). Winners may purchase up to two tickets at $39 each (inclusive of $5 service fee), subject to availability. Seats may be partial view.

A limited number of in-person Hell’s Kitchen rush tickets will be available on the day of each performance for $39 per ticket when the Shubert Theatre box office opens. Maximum of two tickets per person, subject to availability. Seats may be partial view. The box office opens Monday through Saturday at 10AM (ET) and Sunday at 12PM (ET).

Tickets for Hell’s Kitchen are available at HellsKitchen.com and Telecharge.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the Shubert Theatre box office. Ticket prices range from $59-199.

Season ticket memberships and single game tickets for New York Liberty home games at Barclays Center are on sale now via Ticketmaster. To learn more and view additional ticketing options such as group tickets and ticket plans, visit liberty.wnba.com/tickets.

G.H. Harding

ALEC BALDWIN — I’ve had my own issues with Alec Baldwin for years; then, literally on a dime, it all turned around and I found him to be pretty compassionate, intelligent and a nice guy. What happened in Santa Fe on the Rust set was an unspeakable tragedy, and his trial was halted yesterday and the case was dismissed due to evidence not being given to the Baldwin-team. The Santa Fe prosecutor Kari Morrisey seemingly told two different stories on the stand and outside the court room. She is, without a doubt, toast.

Baldwin is still liable for civil suits, but this case is gone and he cannot be tried again. A win for sure, but the questions still remain: who brought live ammo onto the Rust-set. Clearly that may never, ever be determined.

Baldwin’s a good guy with a short fuse, but this situation, once and for all, is done.

Mirage

SHORT TAKES — Hard to believe the Las Vegas Mirage is closing … after 35 years. Opened in 1983 it was a great hotel and hosted The Beatles’ Love show. I have stayed there numerous times and loved it. The new owner will build a Hard Rock hotel there, with a HUGE guitar in front. Yet again changing the skyline of that town. It’ll open in 2027 …

Lyndsey Parker is a terrific writer.

There are special guest stars, and then there’s extra-special guest stars. Which is what Harry Styles what is as he joined Stevie Nicks at her July 12 concert in the UK for versions of her hits “Stop Draggin’ My heart Around” and “Landslide.” Styles played guitar on stage and held up on the Tom Petty/Lindsey Buckingham vocal parts. It was familiar turf, as Styles has joined Nicks on stage several times in the past. Nicks was appearing at the BST Hyde Park concert series on Friday. Nicks told the audience in London that she asked Styles to help her in commemorating what would have been her late Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie’s 81st birthday … RIP Dr. Ruth!

A Midsummer Night’s Scheme: An Artistic Fusion in Tribeca

Published

on

In the heart of Tribeca, during the spirited celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, an immersive installation titled “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” has enraptured the design and art community of New York City. This unique collaboration, inspired by Shakespeare’s illustrious play, is a triumphant partnership melding Brazilian Mid-Century Modern furniture, contemporary fine art, and exquisitely handmade carpets. The exhibition, a confluence of Found Collectibles, Nicolas Auvray Gallery, and Carini, is a testament to their shared vision, creating a mesmerizing tableau that celebrates both historical and modern artistic expressions.

The opening night, an event of sublime enchantment, saw over 150 guests—including collectors, interior designers, architects, and design aficionados—gathered to bask in the sophisticated ambiance of Carini’s Tribeca showroom. The exhibit, running through July 22nd, beckons visitors from Monday to Friday, 10 AM to 6 PM, at 335 Greenwich Street #A, New York, NY 10013.

Getting a ‘Puck-ture’ perfect moment with this midsummer mischief-maker.

Rodrigo Salem, founder of Found Collectibles, eloquently captured the essence of the event: “We aimed to showcase the coexistence of Brazilian mid-century modern collectible design, beautiful rugs, and contemporary fine art. The result is an elegant, harmonious, stunning aesthetic fusion.”

Brazilian mid-century design enshrined among tapestries and fine art.

Nicolas Auvray Gallery, a vibrant beacon in Chelsea, New York, continues to be a crucible for artistic dialogue and creativity. Formerly known as Galerie L’Atelier, the gallery has metamorphosed into a dynamic space where traditional and contemporary art forms converge, reflecting the richness and complexity of the human experience. Under the guidance of Nicolas Auvray, whose journey from corporate executive to esteemed curator is itself a narrative of artistic passion, the gallery presents an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures, photography, and mixed media, each piece a thread in the intricate tapestry of human expression.

Framed by striking textile design, ALBEN’s post-modern Venus de Milo overlooks a stunning vintage dining set.

Eric Ceccarini’s evocative photography from his “AMNIOS” series with its naturalistic light and striking sexuality, and ALBEN’s postmodern “Venus de Milo” sculpture, a reimagined configuration of crushed Coke cans, were among the highlights.

As Puck would have it, juicy color and textures abound throughout the exhibition.

The carpets, suspended like tapestries, epitomized the artistry of Carini. Founded in 1997 by Joe Carini and Aurelie Lang, Carini NYC has long been at the forefront of the carpet design revolution, marrying traditional Tibetan knotting techniques with visionary design. Joe Carini’s dedication to natural dyes and authentic weaving practices underscores the company’s commitment to creating pieces that are both timeless and contemporary, drawing on ancient traditions to inform modern aesthetics.

Visually arresting displays surround rare vintage Brazilian collectibles.

Photographer Carlos Saavedra captured the spirit of the opening night, remarking, “It was wonderful to see all these different people from exciting worlds—fine art, fashion, antique collectibles, and textiles—coming together in this space we all created together and enjoying each other. There were so many countries and cultures represented; everyone just loved the space!”

Notable guests included designers Juan Montoya and Ernesto de la Torre, designer Bryan McCarthy, and Ben Genocchio, Editor in Chief of InCollect, each adding their unique flair to an evening of cultural confluence and artistic celebration.

In true Capote fashion, the event was a soirée where art and design waltzed together, a midsummer night’s dream come to life in the vibrant heart of New York City.
