Drawing on inspiration from letters, diaries and coded correspondences in the book At The Heart of the White Rose, Hans & Sophie is an intimate two-character portrait of resistance and conviction in the darkest of times, immersing audiences in the student's metamorphosis from loyal Hitler Youth into one of the Nazi regime's most feared oppositions.

Kimbell Art Museum - Renoir: The Body, The Senses

Exhibition on Display: October 27, 2019 - January 26, 2020
Over the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir continually turned to the human figure for artistic inspiration. The body—particularly the nude—was the defining subject of Renoir's artistic practice from his early days as a student copying the old masters in the Louvre to the early twentieth century, when his revolutionary style of painting inspired the masters of modernism. In recognition of the centenary of Renoir's death, the Clark Art Institute and Kimbell Art Museum present Renoir: The Body, The Senses. This daring exhibition is the first major exploration of Renoir's unceasing interest in the human form...

Arts Fifth Avenue  
Arts Fifth Avenue - The God Of Hell

The God of Hell was written in part as a response to the events of September 11, 2001, and has been described by Shepard as "a take-off on Republican fascism." Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank's old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they're visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat from hell. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously long half life.
