Tony Award winner BD Wong and videographer Richert Schnorr are re-conceiving the theatrical song cycle Songs from an Unmade Bed as a collection of music videos, reflecting life during the COVID-19 pandemic. The videos will stream as a benefit for Broadway Cares’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund. First produced by New York Theatre Workshop in 2005 and released on Ghostlight Records not long after, the work takes on new meaning and provides unique perspectives in the wake of the current coronavirus crisis. Songs from an Unmade Bed explores the inner musings and romantic life of a gay man living in New York City. It was created by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning lyricist and librettist Mark Campbell with 18 composers: Debra Barsha, Mark Bennett, Peter Foley, Jenny Giering, Peter Golub, Jake Heggie, Stephen Hoffman, Lance Horne, Gihieh Lee, Steven Lutvak, Steve Marzullo, Brendan Milburn, Chris Miller, Greg Pliska, Duncan Sheik, Kim D. Sherman, Jeffrey Stock and Joseph Thalken. Wong and Schnorr set up a makeshift recording studio in their living room. All props and costumes are their own and reflect the adaptive skills all New Yorkers have had to exercise during the pandemic.
Every live event organizer wants fans. Having an established group of enthusiastic people to fill your house, concert hall, comedy club or gin joint is considered a slam dunk or homerun, right? That’s why we invited two incredible figures from the sports world to join our Expert Chat: LA Sparks President Danita Johnson & SF Giants’ EVP Staci Slaughter. We’ll be talking about building and maintaining a fan base, even when those fans can’t come into the venue. Goldstar CEO Jim McCarthy will also share the latest Return Readiness Score from our ongoing consumer survey from around the country. LA Sparks President and COO Danita Johnson is revolutionizing the women’s sports business model. In a landscape where women’s sports receives less than one percent of sports sponsorship dollars and less than four percent of sports media coverage, Danita has implemented an innovative approach to growing the WNBA’s marquee franchise. Staci Slaughter serves as Executive Vice President, Communications and Senior Advisor to the CEO for the San Francisco Giants, one of the nation’s premier sports and entertainment franchises. She joined the team in 1996 and oversees brand image, messaging, media relations, communications strategy and crisis management. Staci is also responsible for the Giants’ charitable endeavors. Under her leadership, the Giants were named the 2016 Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year by ESPN.
Great art is timeless, and speaks to us across time, culture and space. Yet great works come from real people living real lives— whether their work was made 5 minutes or 500 years ago. Popular Smithsonian Associates speaker Paul Glenshaw looks at great works of art in their historical context. He delves into the time of the artist, explores the present they inhabited, and what shaped their vision and creations. Before the Civil War, there were few medical colleges and a wide range of methods of qualifying as a “doctor.” The war created a vast number of patients, and the need for professional, science-based training became paramount. Dr. Samuel Gross was one of the nation’s leading surgeons before and during the war, and when Thomas Eakins painted him in the operating room 10 years after its close, his reputation as a leading medical educator was unparalleled. The transformation and rise of American medical education were taking root, much as professional art education was at the same time. Eakins went to Paris to study, as did many other American artists and scientists, becoming a renowned professor at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Glenshaw examines the moment Eakins captured in his monumental painting, The Gross Clinic, how it reveals what it meant to study art and medicine at the time, and how education in these fields became American. Glenshaw is an artist, educator, author, and filmmaker with more than 25 years’ experience working across disciplines in the arts, history, and sciences. He teaches drawing for Smithsonian Associates and studied painting at Washington University in St. Louis.
A true American original, Rogers began his career as a trick rope artist in a Wild West show and rose to fame as a vaudeville headliner, a Hollywood movie star, and a syndicated newspaper columnist. With his plainspoken humor and clear-eyed social commentary, he struck a chord with audiences around the world and became the voice of his nation. “Call me a ‘rube’ and a ‘hick,’” ran a characteristic observation, “but I’d a lot rather be the man who bought the Brooklyn Bridge than the man who sold it.” Today, the gentle, open spirit of his humor is sadly absent from public discourse, but his sharp commentary still finds its target. “Once a man holds public office,” he often remarked, “he is absolutely no good for honest work.” Join us for an evening of laughter (and perhaps even rope tricks) as author Daniel Stashower explores Will Rogers’ life and legacy and actor Scott Sedar performs some of his most celebrated monologues. This program is part of our Smithsonian Associates Streaming series.
One of television’s most talked-about programs, The Good Place, just ended after four seasons. Combining philosophy and humor, the show asked what it means to try to be a morally good human being. The comedy took its philosophy seriously, keeping its references to famous philosophers’ ethical theories — and their implications — honest. Good Place philosophical adviser and author Todd May talks about the various theories and moral dilemmas that the show addressed, such as existentialism, utilitarianism, and psychological egoism. May explores the series’ central question and how the characters — flawed humans all — each found their own way to redemption — philosophically speaking. This is part of the Smithsonian Associates Streaming series.
The Harry Potter novels may seem like a strange perspective from which to view economics. In a realm filled with magic, we might expect the economic problems that we Muggles face to disappear in a puff of smoke. But even the Boy Who Lived has to come to grips with fiscal reality. Instead of divination class, Harry should have signed up to study the economics of the magical world. Delving into topics including monetary systems, black markets, corruption, labor issues, human-capital development, utility theory, and more, economist Brian O’Roark investigates how economics pervades the Potterverse. In fact, that irritation in Harry’s scar is probably not just caused by the return of you-know-who. It is also brought on by the Subject That Must Not Be Named. The evening offers the perfect way for wizards of all ages to explore the power of economics. O’Roark is a university professor of economics at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, a co-author of Essentials of Economics, author of Why Superman Doesn’t Take Over The World, and editor of Superheroes and Economics.

Based on her reporting of a real-life murder case, Susan Glaspell’s Trifles takes place in the rustic kitchen of Mrs. Minnie Foster Wright, a woman accused of murdering her husband. As male authority figures search for a motive, their wives talk about domestic responsibilities (what the men deem “trifles”). Left alone in Mrs. Wright’s kitchen, the women discover details that lead them to piece together the real story of their friend, her marriage, and the murder. Glaspell’s play, an early example of feminist drama, examines what it means to be a woman within a patriarchal society, while also acknowledging the power of female friendship. When Trifles was first performed in 1916, women were not allowed to vote, serve as legislators, judges, or be on a jury. If a woman committed a crime she would not be judged by other women.

This is a livestreaming event. Comedian Sarge is an entertainer who has performed worldwide to adoring audiences. He delights audiences with humor that resonates with audiences of all ages. And he is much more than a comedian – Sarge is a self-taught piano savant, an author and motivational speaker. His humor comes from a very personal place as his road to success was not a smooth one. Sarge has worked on some of the biggest stages in show business. From Radio City Music Hall to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game to entertaining our nation’s troops in Iraq, Sarge’s ability to improvise and tailor his show to specific audiences is uncanny. He is one of the highest energy, multi-talented acts in show business today. Not only a hysterical stand-up comedian, Sarge sings in his own voice and in a dozen others including Harry Connick Jr., Sammy Davis Jr., Lionel Richie and Stevie Wonder. Additionally, his dead on impressions of Marv Albert, Mike Tyson, Kermit the Frog and Gilbert Gottfried leave audiences howling and clamoring for more. Triple threats who don’t dance are hard to find in show business today. With his mix of comedy, singing and piano playing, Sarge is a legitimate triple threat and a rare find.

Since we can’t go outside, let’s look within…OUR CLOSETS! Welcome to what I call a Mindful Closet Audit. During this virtual experience, I will guide you on how to not only be present with the clothing that you already own, but also how to mindfully release those pieces that no longer serve the person you have become and would like to be. We will go a step further than Marie Kondo’s process of asking “Does it bring me joy?” to ask the deeper question “Does it fit the (style) story I’d like to tell?” Using my background as a fashion designer, educator and enthusiast, I have crafted a series of exercises that will help reintegrate and reset the relationship between your body, soul and style choices. Together we will create a manageable framework that you can use to consciously design the wardrobe of your dreams. This pandemic has been really scary for all of us, join me and let’s try to find the silver (coat?) lining in this gift of a pause from our regular schedules and uninspired style ruts.

Join me for a virtual tour of the Hermitage, one of the most famous museums in the world, located in St. Petersburg, Russia. See the room where Catherine the Great had private parties so secret that even servants were not allowed to attend and where the decor is so stunning you will not want to leave (in the picture). Visit the private rooms of the last Russian tsar, Nicolas II, rooms where he spent time with his beautiful wife Alexandra, rooms visited by Rasputin, and rooms where the famous Princess Anastasia lived. I have some amazing historic photos from that time that I will show during the tour! Learn about some amazing world-class art, such as Da Vinci, Rafael, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, and more. All of this in beautiful palace-worthy interiors designed in the 19th century specially to house this jaw-dropping art. Enjoy an exclusive view of the crown jewels, including Catherine the Great’s diamonds, in the Diamond room (not everyone knows about that amazing space!). Be surrounded with the splendor of gold, marble, granite, malachite, and more gold, because you are in Russia, and our royal family was super wealthy. Have a private showing of a famous clock that you probably wouldn’t see working, even if you were at the Hermitage in real life right now (or really, any other time!)

Eliances provides a unique outlet for some of the most influential and intellectual individuals throughout the Valley to foster business relationships. We are not a group, village, networking, mastermind, peer group, peer advisory group, chamber, association, hub or club. Eliances is a destination “Where Entrepreneurs Align™” The community hosts weekly ROUNDtable meetings enabling entrepreneurs and inventors alike to collaborate and help each other with ventures. The ROUNDtable is one of the puzzle pieces of Eliances where action takes place. A Valley CEO explained that “Eliances moves networking from a passive exercise to active engagement. At its core, Eliances is as much about what can one contribute as what can one receive, and fundamentally it’s that balance between give and get that creates true value.” It brings together a “high-level community of hybrid entrepreneurs with resources, influence, skills, contacts and imagination.” There is no other community structured by the implications and operations that comprise Eliances. Eliances operates on what they refer to as the 3G methodology™: Got, Give and Get. Every week, each attendee is given a 60-second window of time in which to pitch their respective G’s. This high pressure scenario allows Eliances members to analyze and optimize the caliber of attendance each week; because regardless an individual’s status, there is no guarantee an invite to the next event.
