movies If someone feels like singing and dancing right now, it might as well be Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Watch the trailer for La La Land, opening December 9… Opening today at Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC, Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened, a look back at the Sondheim/Prince show Merrily We Roll Along, a quick Broadway flop in 1981 (with a great score), its rocky road and the impressions it left on its young cast… Not in a musical mood? The family drama Manchester By the Sea isn't any old family drama: it was written by the formidably talented Kenneth Lonergan, who also directed. In addition to the reliably pitch-perfect work by Mr. Lonergan, there are strong performances by Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams, plus the requisite Massachusetts vibe (hundred of r's go missing!).

dance Ballet Hispánico's annual return to the Apollo, tonight and tomorrow, 8pm—the 7th year under the Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro. On the bill, the world premiere of Línea Recta, choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

And if you want to get serious, do the mozz yourself, after some tutelage by Murray's, Tuesday, November 22nd and additional dates.

music Honne, the blue-eyed electronic soul duo from the U.K., has released their first full-length album, titled Warm on a Cold Night, which is also the band's vibe.
