David Grisman will bring half a century of mandolin experience and his band to City Winery to give a show any bluegrass fanatic will love. Grisman has created his own niche in contemporary music and his style is the product of his years of practice studying bluegrass under Ralph Rinzler, and recording with bluegrass contemporaries such as the Kentuckians, Peter Rowan, and Jerry Garcia.
Award-winning playwright Dan Hoyle presents a new show on how we experience the world in the digital age. Titled Each and Every Thing, the play's plot takes the audience everywhere -- from coffee shops in Calcutta to conversations in Manhattan, and leaves the audience thinking about our relationships with one another in this fractured yet hyper-connected world. Tickets are $$20-35 sliding scale and $$50/$$100 for reserved seating.
