14 awesome things happening in New York this week

By Jaz Joyner

Jan 20

A Night with Kroll Show's "Oh Hello"; 92nd Street Y, Upper East Side, 8pm. $30. 
Be sure to say "Oh, hellooo" when you see these two curmudgeonly divorcees at this screening followed by a Q&A. 

Let the Right One In; St. Ann's Warehouse, Dumbo, 8pm. $35–$70.
Remember the creepy Swedish teen-vampire movie Let the Right One In? Now it's been turned into a sensational stage show at St. Ann's Warehouse in Dumbo for a limited time. 

Peter Carey in Conversation; McNally Jackson Books, Nolita, 7pm. Free.
Peter Carey is special. Why? He's one of only three other folks who've won the Book Prize twice. Go see this brilliant Australian novelist talk about his new book Amnesia, which could win him his third Booker Prize—who knows!   

New York City Ballet Winter 2015; David H. Koch Theater(at Lincoln Center), Upper West Side, 7:30. $59–$134.
Along with Balanchine favorites, the company unveils a world premiere by Justin Peck and brings back Alexei Ratmansky's wonderful Pictures at an Exhibition.

Vijay Iyer Residency; The Stone, East Village, 8pm. $20. 
The trailblazing pianist returns with Break Stuff, a new album featuring the group that made him famous, Trio 3.

Round-Up; BAM Harvey Theater, Fort Greene, 7:30pm. $30–$65. 
Singer and songwriter Sufjan Stevens illustrates evocation of the rodeo as part of BAM Next Wave Festival. Saddle up and ride in! Or just take the subway, which would probably make more sense.

Jan 21

Selected Shorts: Art and Artists; Symphony Space, Upper West Side, 7:30pm. $29, 30 and under $15. 
Indie princess Parker Posey, Heather Burns and other actors perform tales from writers like Sheila Heti and Justin Torres at this event celebrating the event's 30th-anniversary festivities, hosted by Time Out New York contributing editor Matthew Love.

Mark Greif: The Age of the Crisis of Man; Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, Soho, 7pm. Free.
Renowned author Mark Grief and film critic A.O. Scott discuss literature and artistic production of a 40-year span in American history, 1933–1973. What's relevant about that time, you ask?  Well, friend, that was the time most intellectuals agreed humanity was basically doomed. 

Turquoise Jeep + Highclass Hoodlums; The Marlin Room (at Webster Hall), East Village, 8pm. $15. 
This is your chance to see Mr. Flossy, Yung Humma and the rest of the crew behind the awkward come-on hit "Lemme Smang It" in the flesh.

Jan 22

Edible Brooklyn’s Good Spirits 2015; Invisible Dog Gallery, Cobble Hill, 6pm. $60-$70.
Good Spirits comes to Kings County for the first time with local cocktail and food pairings at an old factory in Cobble Hill.  

Lavell Crawford; Carolines on Broadway, Midtown West, 7:30. $42.
Not familiar with the name? It’s Huell from Breaking Bad! Doing stand-up! Yeah, thought that’d get your attention.

Into the WoodsLaura Pels Theatre, 7:30. $99.
Maybe you caught Stephen Sondheim's beloved fairy-tale musical, Into the Woods, at the multiplex. Now you can go in the exact opposite direction and see a cleverly stripped-down version (piano only!) Off Broadway, courtesy of the Roundabout.

Sara Schaefer; Union Hall, Park Slope, 7pm and 9pm. $10, advance $8. 
The Nikki and Sara Live costar (who we recently featured on our Women of Comedy 2014 stand-up showcase) is recording an album. Go see it now, then hear yourself laughing later.
