Josh Sharp Sings Live

Critics' pick

Here, stand-up Josh Sharp uses one really long D’Angelo song to illustrate a tale of gay romance. If you believe in the universal saga of love, take a chapter from this super queer, "straight-friendly" show.

Harlem Week

Critics' pick

Harlem's historic community’s rich artistic heritage in on full display during this "week" (actually more like a month). It opens with showcases for Harlem’s gospel, fashion, restaurant and culture scenes at the all-day picnic Great Day in Harlem at the General Grant National Memorial. The festivities continue with free concerts, a 5K run, and an expo and a fair of small businesses in the area.

Miguel

Critics' pick

As a big-time style-sampler, R&B crooner Miguel delved into numerous cross-genre dabblings throughout his first couple albums, making the tunes part Latin-tinged hip-hop and part classic soul. On the newly released Wildheart though, he focuses in on his funk inspirations—Prince, Freddie Mercury, James Brown, etc.—for a run of sensually grooving new material. He'll be in performer mode while supporting the critically-acclaimed release at the spacious Terminal 5.

Bark in the Park

Critics' pick

Get a special bleacher seat to this minor-league ball game, and Fido can come along. The designated section, called the Bow-Wow Zone for that afternoon only, will have water stations for the pooches, and those with or without a pet can ponder picking up a new furry roommate at a mini pet adoption drive from Sean Casey Animal Rescue in front of the stadium. Take part in a pregame on-field dog parade, and get a photo of yourself with your four-legged best friend.

Kayak on the Hudson

Nothing strengthens a friendship like wading into water and having to count on your bud to keep a skinny canoe afloat, so bring your comrade along to kayak on the Hudson. You'll get to go out on the water for 20-minute sessions, after a brief lesson, of course—just enough time to bond before your arms get tired.

“KAWS: ALONG THE WAY"

Critics' pick

The former street artist, who's taken his game up a notch, designing a ballon for the Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade, and also creating the set for last year's MTV Music Awards at the Barclays Center, fills the Brooklyn Museum's lobby with an 18-foot-tall wooden sculpture depicting his signature character, Companion—a sort of skull-headed Mickey Mouse with Xs for eyes—as a pair of of identical figures, with one consoling the other.

Godfrey

Critics' pick

Longtime club comic Godfrey has been inching his way toward greater success—he starred in a special last year, Black by Accident, and was recently featured on 30 Rock and Louie—but he continues to bring a naughty, impish glee to his stage sets.

Ice Factory Festival 2015

Critics' pick

In the helter-skelter of summer theater festivals, the cool curatorial heads of the Ice Factory always provide a welcome breeze. This year’s lineup of plays and multimedia performance includes work by the Assembly, Glass Bandits and Morgan Gould & Friends. For details about individual shows, visit the Ice Factory's site.

The End of the Tour

You won’t see Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Jason Segel through the same eyes after you witness his dense dramatic turn as late Infinite Jest author David Foster Wallace. 

Read more

The Look of Silence

Joshua Oppenheimer surpasses his devastating The Act of Killing with another essential doc about the Indonesian genocide. The follow-up hits even harder as an indictment.

Read more

Amy

The sad, self-destructive story of Amy Winehouse gets a sympathetic airing in Asif Kapadia’s documentary, which is both a cautionary tale and, when the music’s on, a celebratory one.

Phoenix

Germany’s hypnotically fascinating Nina Hoss plays a Holocaust survivor so transformed by plastic surgery she’s unrecognizable to her husband (who may have sold her out to the Nazis) in this superb, unsettling psychodrama.

Read more

Tangerine

Hell hath no fury like a trans Hollywood hooker scorned in Sean Baker’s grab-you-by-the-collar indie. Captured via iPhone with a grungy beauty, the tale has a serious core of defiance.

Trainwreck

Amy Schumer is due for her TV-to-film crossover, and with this dazzling Judd Apatow–directed NYC dating comedy (also a roar of feminist pride), she’s got it.

Minions

Remember those weird little blobs from the Despicable Me movies? Of course, you do—they eclipsed the main story. Now they have their own supremely silly vehicle. Rejoice.

A Poem Is a Naked Person

Long buried by its subject, rocker Leon Russell, this doc is finally getting a proper release. It’s not only a delivery device for the music, but a time capsule of early ’70s lifestyles.

Jimmy's Hall

The politically engaged Ken Loach, one of England’s most accomplished directors, brings an Irish tale of rebellion and community to life. The film thrums with tenderness and rage alike.

What have you done with this feature? It used to be a readable roundup. Now it's just an assortment of links that I have to open in a million different tabs. As someone who refers to these weekend roundups quite a bit, I respectfully request that you bring back the old format.
