Brighton Beach Memoirs

Coming of age may not be easy, but it sure can be hilarious. Eugene Morris Jerome is 15, lives in 1930's Brooklyn and thinks of little else but playing for the Yankees… and girls. Eugene's witty commentary about his life, his overworked father, his overbearing mother, his overconfident brother and his overly gorgeous cousin, makes this tender journey through young adulthood both poignant and joyful. Directed by Matt Torney, this production at Theater J continues through May 7.


Artistic Soldiers: Artistic Expression
in the First World War

Before World War I, war art was done far from the battlefield. The First World War marked a turning point with the appearance of artwork intended to capture the moment in a realistic way, by first-hand participants. This exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, examines this form of artistic expression from two complementary perspectives: professional artists who were recruited by the U.S. Army and soldiers who created artwork. Together they shed light on World War I in a very compelling way.
