“”The 17th annual Orchid Show is a dazzling tribute to Singapore, the vibrant “City in a Garden” where these storied flowers are an integral part of the culture and landscape. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibition pays homage to the sites’ iconic Supertrees—dramatic vertical habitats, and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.

This horticultural spectacle, set in the landmark Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, mesmerizes with thousands of orchids in every shape, color, and size. Treasures from NYBG’s exquisite orchid collection as well as varieties showcasing Singapore’s achievements in orchid hybridization, research, and conservation are also on display.””

Created by Chris Hannon, former principal dancer for Lord of the Dance, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy features original choreography combining traditional Irish and modern dance techniques presented with multimedia elements, song and live music. The cast of Murphy’s Celtic Legacy gives an invigorating performance of traditional Irish Dance.

The performance centers on an original tale developed by Hannon drawn from Irish folklore—a tale of Kings and Queens, rebels and magic; epic battles between good and evil. It tells the story of the Murphy clan, who flee the corrupt tyrants of their native Eire in search of a better future.

SPECIAL EXHIBITION

How should the photography world respond to the times in which we live? “A Room for Solace,” a special exhibition curated by Alec Soth for The Photography Show, will feature scenes of domestic interiors that speak to the possibility of finding refuge during turbulent times. Comprising portraiture, still life, and reportage chosen from exhibiting galleries, what connects these pictures is a quality of intimacy. Says Soth, “With this exhibition, I want to take a break from the fractious public square of photography and wander quietly into people’s homes. Behind these doors I hope to find a sliver of solace in these unstable times.”

GOOD COOKS! : The Live Comedy Show About All Things Food
Apr 18 – Apr 19 all-day

THE TANK

PRESENTS

GOOD COOKS!

February 12, March 14, April 18

The Live Comedy Show About All Things Food

Every Month @ The Tank
312 West 36th Street

The Tank (Meghan Finn and Rosalind Grush, Artistic Directors) will present the live comedy show for food lovers, GOOD COOKS! created by Deby Xiadani, Alec Ring, and Luke Katler at The Tank (312 West 36th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) on Tuesday, January 22 at 9:30pm, Tuesday, February 12 at 9:30pm, Thursday, March 14 at 9:30pm, and Thursday, April 18 at 9:30pm. Runtime is 1 (delicious) hour. Tickets ($10) are available for advance purchase at www.thetanknyc.org.

GOOD COOKS! is a monthly sketch comedy show all about food. Each month, we invite two amazing guests who work in the world of food. We interview them about their passions and their work and help them plan AUDIENCE TASTINGS and LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS. Between interviews, original comedy sketches keep the atmosphere upbeat and energized. We’ve featured chefs, small business owners, social media influencers, publicists, sommeliers, and more. The show was born out of our shared love of food, comedy, and creating a sense of community for our audience.

Deby Xiadani (Director/Writer/Producer) is a Mexican-American woman specializing in new work and comedy. She won the fictitious award for Most Likely To Make Friends on the Train and has actually been nominated Best Director 2018 for Leurana (by Enrique Huili). Deby’s been asked back to Dartmouth College (her alma mater) seven times to direct, emcee, and produce live events because she can collaborate with a wide-range of skill sets. She’s assisted Broadway Director Gabriel Barre on Billy Elliot in Mexico City and designed a writer’s workshop for playwright, Elise Wien, in preparation for Corkscrew Festival in NYC. In her spare time, she teaches fitness to active adults. (“Xiadani” pronounced: Shee-ah-daw-nee)

Alec Ring (Director/Writer/Producer) is a director, writer, and producer with training at UCB and Improv Olympic based in New York. After living in Los Angeles, Alec moved to New York to begin working at Cinetic Media – a full service sales, finance, management, and production company in film and television. Most recently, he has assisted with the production of Ethan Hawke’s Blaze which premiered at Sundance 2018 and Peter Farrelly’s Green Book starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.

Luke Katler (Director/Writer/Producer) hails from sunny south Florida where he spent his days staring longingly at the beach from a darkened room watching 90s comedies. Luke works at Barbara Whitman Productions as Barbara’s Associate Producer, where he helps shepherd plays and musicals to the Great White Way. Luke has spent his life as a performer and director in everything ranging from Shakespeare, musical theatre, and improv comedy at Chicago’s Improv Olympic. On any given day or night you can likely find Luke at the theatre or huffing and puffing on a strained run along the Hudson. He has strong opinions about the most authentic Italian cuisine in New York, so just don’t even bring it up. For your own sake. Trust him on this.

The Tank is a non-profit arts presenter serving emerging artists engaged in the pursuit of new ideas and forms of expression. We serve over 2,000 artists every year in over 400 performances, and work across all disciplines, including theater, comedy, dance, film, music, public affairs, and storytelling. Our goal is to foster an environment of inclusiveness and remove the burden of cost from the creation of new work for artists launching their careers and experimenting within their art form. The heart of our services is providing free performance space in our 98-seat proscenium and 56-seat blackbox that we operate in Manhattan, and we also offer a suite of other services such as free rehearsal space, promotional support, artist fees, and much more. We keep ticket prices affordable and view our work as democratic, opening up both the creation and attendance of the arts to all.

Past Tank produced-work includes Drama Desk-nominated productions Ada/Ava (2016), youarenowhere (2016), The Paper Hat Game (2017), the ephemera trilogy (2017), and The Hunger Artist (2018), as well as New York Times Critics’ Pick’s The Offending Gesture by Mac Wellman, directed by Meghan Finn (2016) and Red Emma & The Mad Monk by Alexis Roblan, directed by Katie Lindsay (2018). Since its founding in 2003, artists who have come through The Tank include Alex Timbers, Amy Herzog, Lucy Alibar, Reggie Watts, Kyle Abraham, Andrew Bujalski, We Are Scientists, and tens of thousands of others. www.thetanknyc.org
