New Line continues its 27th season with the rowdy, naughty, subversive masterpiece of musical comedy, Cole Porter’s Anything Goes, a stinging satire of Americans’ quirky habit of turning religion into show business and criminals into celebrities, along the way skewering Wall Street, Prohibition, Old Money Brits, and a few other ripe targets. Anything Goes is a masterful mashup of musical comedy, gangaster movie, screwball comedy, and social satire. Anything Goes fearlessly ripped open the American psyche and spilled it all out onto a Broadway stage. And the American pysche hasn’t changed that much since 1934. Despite its reputation as fluff, the show is a whip-smart satire of American “cafe society” (the 1% of 1934), with the steamship S.S. American standing in for Shakespeare’s woods, a place with no rules, where people find out who they really are and “correct” the mistakes they’ve made in the world of the City.For more information, visit the New Line Theatre website.

Is the world really falling apart? In this elegant assessment of the human condition in the third millennium, cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom. Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West, but worldwide. This progress is not the result of some cosmic force. It is a gift of the Enlightenment: the conviction that reason and science can enhance human flourishing.

Two-time Booker Prize-winning author, Peter Carey presents a wildly exuberant, wily new novel that circumnavigates 1954 Australia, revealing as much about the country as it does about three audacious individuals who take part in the infamous 10,000-mile race, the Redex Trial. This thrilling high-speed tale is often funny, even more so as the world gets stranger. Set in the 1950s, this is a world Americans will find surprisingly familiar: black, white, who we are, how we got here, and what we did to each other along the way.
Im With Her is Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife ODonovan. From their early contributions in bands such as Nickel Creek and Crooked Still, these three musicians are noteworthy for their recent and extensive solo career successes, including several Grammy awards. An impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO, sparked the formation of Im With Her and sent the trio touring the world together the next year. Along the way, Im With Her formed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes, ... that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel. Their debut album, See You Around, was recorded in Bath, England, with Ethan Johns at Real World Studios and will be released in February 2018.

Andrea Gibson asks into the microphone. The audience leans forward in silent anticipation. So I met this woman and I went home to her house with her. She pauses, already a great story. The audience erupts with laughter, a happy juxtaposition after being so quietly captivated. Smirking into the spotlight, Andrea continues,
So were about to kiss for the very first time. And right before our lips touch, she jumps from the bed, runs to the closet and grabs a stethoscope, puts the ear thingies in my ears and slides the knob down her shirt onto her heart and says, I want you to listen to my heart speed up when you kiss me. And I kissed her! And her heart got faster and faster yall. By this point the room itself almost feels like a stethoscope pumping with the galloping hearts of the fans. Moral of the story, buy a stethoscope, Gibson says, and theres that laughter again, followed by music, and they launch into a love poem with the members of the audience mouthing along. Youre not alone if when you hear, poetry show and dont envision a scene like this. But then chances are youve never seen Andrea Gibson perform live. One of the most celebrated and successful poets in the field began their career in 1999 with a break-up poem at an open mic in Boulder, Colorado. Gibson then leaped into the forefront of spoken word poetry on the national scene in 2008 when they won the first ever Woman of the World Poetry Slam. Author of three collections of poetry and currently working on an illustrated collection of their most memorable quotes for Penguin (Winter 2018), Andrea (they/them/their) has also released seven (7) full-length albums.
