  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

[Note: This review is for the version of Nedebel Funeral that played in the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival. The production at 59E59 has the same director and cast.] Between scenes in the penetrating Ndebele Funeral, characters sometimes break into gumboot dancing. This rapid-fire storm

Boyhood

  • Rated as: 5/5

Looking at it one way, Boyhood represents a spectacularly cheap way of saving on actors’ salaries: To capture his rambling yet absorbing Texas family drama, director Richard Linklater (Bernie, Before Midnight) received agreements from several performers—including his eight-year-old daughter,

  • Critics choice

RECOMMENDED: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) After a two-year redesign by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, MoMA reopened in 2004 with almost double the space to display some of the most impressive artworks from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Outside, the Philip Johnson–designed Abby Aldrich

Grand Central Terminal, Main Concourse

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice
  • Free

The 1913 Beaux Arts train station is the city’s most spectacular point of arrival. The station played an important role in the nation’s historic preservation movement, after a series of legal battles that culminated in the 1978 Supreme Court decision affirming NYC’s landmark laws. One notable

"Designing Modern Women 1890–1990"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

The contribution of women designers during the 20th century is the focus of this survey drawn from MoMA's collection. One highlight: a complete reconstructed kitchen originally created for Le Corbusier's midcentury Unité d'Habitation housing complex in Marseille, France, by Charlotte Perriand.

"Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness"

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

A MoMA retrospective is usually an indicator of an artist about to become a household name, but I suspect that the work of Christopher Williams is too difficult for that to happen. His show was sparsely attended when I was there, while crowds thronged through a concurrent Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit.

"The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

MoMA takes viewers back to La Belle Époque in this survey of the graphic art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901), surely one of the best-known and beloved names in art history. All of his iconic images are here, along with the landmarks of late-19th-century Parisian nightlife referenced

"Cy Twombly: Treatise on the Veil"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Twombly (1928–2011) famously elevated scribbles, doodles and scratches to high art, but his abstract paintings were always rife with allusions to antiquity and classical mythology—due in no small measure to the fact that this Virginia native lived his whole life in Rome. The epic Treatise on

Rattle N Hum

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Owner Patrick Donagher is more interested in converting craft-beer newbs than scaring them off: A giant chalkboard wall suggests craft alternatives to mainstream swill, and a daily-changing menu offers 40 mostly American drafts ($7--$9), to help you find your new favorite beer. Purists gravitate

The Grand Tour

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers pass through Grand Central daily, but they probably don’t pay much attention to anything other than navigating the crowds. The Grand Central Partnership seeks to educate natives and tourists alike on the idiosyncrasies of the terminal and its surrounding
