Ghosts - The Play

Harvey Lichtenstein Theater

Until May 3, 2015

Sir Richard Eyre's award winning revival of Ibsen's Ghosts transfers to Brooklyn's Academy of Music this April. The production enjoyed a critically acclaimed run in London's West End in 2013, and was awarded three Olivier Awards and nominated for a further two. Lesley Manville, a West End stage veteran and frequently seen in the films of Mike Leigh, reprises her lead role.

David Sedaris

Gilman Opera House

May 12-13, 2015

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unusual North Carolina background, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.
