A WPPAC SPECIAL EVENT: Spanning a wide array of genres, from Broadway to pop, country, jazz and standards, Linda Eder will perform at White Plains Performing Arts Center on Saturday, JANUARY 20. Tickets start at $60. Visit or call the box office at 914-328-1600. 


Livingston Taylor, perpetually known as the brother of James, is a force in his own right and will perform from a repertoire of 22 albums of his own–at THE EMELIN on February 2.

YORKTOWN STAGE is hosting its Manhattan Comedy Night on February 10. For more comedy–and couldn’t we all use some of that– check out Ben Asher’s COMEDY FROM SCRATCH, a tasting of the NYC-area’s best stand-up comics on the fourth Saturday of each month, taking place at The Idea Kitchen in Larchmont.

Interested in totally breaking the bank… or not? BLUE HILL AT STONE BARNS has some options to check out and avoid the $400 evening meal. They offer a $50 casual lunch (okay… still not inexpensive), an Explore Tour for $75, and a 90-minute cocktail creation class for $95.  Hey, don’t shoot the messenger.

Consider attending a show at Purchase College’s PERFORMING ARTS CENTER.  Listen to tomorrow’s stars at their Latin Jazz Festival on February 10 or be mesmerized by the dance performance of Urban Bush Women on February 24.

Justin Willman, magician, comedian and creator of the Netflix Series MAGIC FOR HUMANS, will be at the Tarrytown Music Hall as part of his in-person tour, on February 22.

The JACOB BURNS FILM CENTER is presenting a Harry Belafonte Retrospective from February 20 to March 19.
