|March 8 is International Women's Day and there is a rally and march starting at 4pm in Washington Square Park. Today, women and the arts:
theater ‣ We think Edward Albee's Three Tall Women is one of his best plays. Decide for yourself with the Broadway production in previews at the Golden with the great Glenda Jackson, Laurie Metcalf (Oscar-nominated for Lady Bird) and Alison Pill.
music ‣ There is no voice like Tracey Thorn's voice and her songwriting is every bit as good. Everything But the Girl, the long-running singing duo with her husband Ben Watt, seems to have been permanently retired. But she's in top form in her new solo album, "Record" which she describes as "nine feminist bangers."
art ‣ At Simon Preston Gallery through March 11, "House of Cards," a show of sculpture forms by Michelle Lopez. The artist will be at NADA on March 9, 3pm, in conversation with Amy Smith-Stewart and Beth Campbell. RSVP
book ‣ It's wait-list only for the evening with Iris Apfel at 92Y on March 21, but you can read Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon, out March 6.
food ‣ Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face by Lauren Toyota has just been published.
tv ‣ Marvel's Jessica Jones returns for season two to Netflix on March 8.
