Django Django + Beat Connection

Critics' pick

Shakespeare in the Park

8pm. Delacorte Theater, Central Park at 81st St. As it did last summer, the Public Theatre is running two plays in repertory at the Delacorte. The grown-up fairy tale All’s Well That Ends Well, which follows resourceful Helena’s gambit to win the heart of snooty Count Bertram, is probably more kid-appropriate than Measure for Measure, which might be too raunchy and Machiavellian for children weaned on Elmo and Abby Cadabby. Ages 10 and up.

Glorious Technicolor

Critics' pick

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the invention of Technicolor by George Eastman House, the MoMA is showing a series of films that exemplify the vibrant early color films, particularly those made between 1922 and 1955. From silent films to musicals to animated classics, many of the best films in American cinema used Technicolor and on Friday evenings during UNIQLO Free Friday Nights (4–8pm) you can skip the usual $12 ticket price and see these flicks for nada.

Is there a Takashi Murakami exhibit going on or something? Why is it the feature image?

Do TimeOut's 'undateables' include any senior citizens?   I haven't seen any, but maybe I missed something.    If you haven't featured any yet, it would be great to see some soon.   There are plenty of us around, and many of us are single.  And please - by senior citizens, I mean those of us who have actually passed our 65th birthdays.  Far too often, those in their 20's think of anyone over 40 as a senior.

As someone who is the same age as your guest editor, Susan Sarandon, I see a distinct lack of attention paid to the social needs of those in my decade of life who are not celebrities.   It would be great to see that change. Thanks!

I have a complaint: I'm an avid reader of the "Undateable" section in Time Out, where Time Out sets up two strangers on a date. Well, last week's article featured a boy who wrote extremely cruel things about his date. I understand you want people to be honest, but I can hardly support someone ripping their date to shreds publicly.
