Singer/Songwriter sensation Randi Driscoll calls together friends from Broadway to benefit The Seeing Place Theater. The show, “Reinvention” touches on the immense challenge put before us when life throws us struggles we’re not sure we have the strength to face. Erin Cronican, founding member of TSP, was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer in 2015 and TSP provided an artistic refuge while dealing with chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Now, Randi Driscoll and her friends from Broadway and beyond are raising money to give back to The Seeing Place, an organization that offers so much to its artists. Randi’s original song “What Matters” is well known as an anthem of the Matthew Shepard Foundation and appears on their website.

Major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art examines the artist’s radical, innovative works. It will be on display from Saturday, March 26 until Sunday, July 24.
The exhibition shows Edgar Degas, best known as a painter and chronicler of the ballet, at his most modern. Bringing new focus to his extraordinary and rarely seen monotype prints and their impact on his wider practice, Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty is the first exhibition in the U.S. in nearly 50 years to examine these radical, innovative works—and MoMA’s first exhibition devoted solely to the artist.

BOUNCE is grounded in pressing issues facing today’s youth.

Audiences will see if “Flight” can rebound from the emotional and physical pain of gun violence as the story plays out on local basketball courts across the country.
