Disney upfront: ABC gets lost in massive presentation

Walt Disney told attendees to arrive early to its upfront presentation at Manhattan’s Lincoln Center on Tuesday afternoon for an immersive “Disney experience.” What that experience was wasn't clear. Agency executives and marketers waited around David Geffen Hall for the doors to open. It was like waiting in line to meet Mickey Mouse at Disney World, so maybe, in a way, attendees were treated to a true Disney experience. This year’s Disney experience was certainly different than those of previ...

The Scarlet Pimpernel - Fun and Frivolity Amidst the Mayhem

Reviewed by Judd Hollander Given the popularity of The Scarlet Pimpernel, whose premise gave rise to numerous latter-day costumed superheroes, it’s somewhat surprising the property has only made it to The Great White Way twice. First as a straight play in 1900, and then as a musical almost a century later. Manhattan Concert Productions offering a stirring, if somewhat over the top one-night-only concert performance of the Nan Knighton/Frank Wildhorn 1997 Broadway vehicle as part of their "B...

The Proms–Musgrave, Copland, Barber, Britten–and Arcola Opera Turnage

This year’s Proms as well as commemorating the centennial of the end of the First World War is also marking the centennial of The Representation of the People Act, which gave voting rights to some women in the United Kingdom for the first time. The means of commemorating that law is the commissioning of eight female composers whose music has not been performed in the Proms before, and a pledge that half the BBC Commissions for the Proms will be, by 2020, from women composers. Coincidentally w...

What is proper work attire in medicine?

I’m a creature of habit. My first activity every day is to read the New York Times. Depending on my schedule, some days I read more articles than others. This week I was away at a conference and found myself with some early morning extra time before the first meeting session, so I delved into the Arts section. I began to read the first article: “ .” It begins: Women can wear pants at the Oscars, the Tony Awards and state dinners. They can wear pants while graduating from the Naval Academy, figur...

The Lincoln Center needs emergency medical supplies

Monday night, at Lincoln Center waiting for Beethoven’s Ninth to begin. Masses of glass spatially dividing David Geffen Hall from the Metropolitan Opera, are still allowing for the majestic Viennese crystal chandeliers next door to provide the necessary visual interruption between the two symphonic masterpieces, Beethoven’s Eight and Ninth. For me, the excitement about this particular event is deeply personal: Ode to Joy became part of my classmates’, my friends’ collective memory, about 30 year...

Review: Wynton Marsalis’s Urban Symphony for the Philharmonic

(Photo by Cole Wilson for The New York Times) The next time Wynton Marsalis writes a symphony for the New York Philharmonic, he might want to plan from the start to keep it well under an hour. At least if he wants to assure that the Philharmonic will be able to perform it complete. Timing was a factor in 2010, when Alan Gilbert led the American premiere of Mr. Marsalis’s Symphony No. 3, “Swing Symphony,” on a season-opening gala program. Because it was being televised on “Live Fr...
