theater Charm may seem in short supply these days and you may have even forgotten how potently mood-altering it can be. The remedy?

art We have the first woman to win a major party's nomination for President, so the timing couldn't be better for Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' 35-year portfolio called The Women's List: 50 Portraits and Film Projection, opening June 16th at Fisher Landau Center.

event Tomorrow night at Webster Hall, #RocktheWaitlist addresses a critical concern: the terrible wait time for organ donation recipients. Each year in this country, only 8,000 who pass away have agreed to donate organs while more than 121,000 wait for them. The event, put together by ORGANIZE, is a concert—with Evil Jake, Spanking Charlene, and Controller—as well as an organ donor registration drive.

movie Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Scarface, The Untouchables and Carlito's Way are some of director Brian De Palma's best-known films. De Palma is the subject of a documentary opening today by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, in which the director talks about his movies. It is never less than absorbing.
