Happy Weird-day! Our petition to change every other Friday to Weird-day starts now. While that probably won’t happen, we do think a lot of fun is in store if you get tickets to the experiences listed below. We’ve got the chance for you to be in the same room as Glenn Close and Eve Ensler, a seasonal show perfect for the family, three engaging events in Bushwick (you can make a day of it!), and more.

Street Art Pilgrimage in Bushwick
Brooklyn, Bushwick
Tour

Take a break from the city rush, look up and enjoy the art around you. Bushwick is an ever-changing concrete canvas and this tour offers an in-depth look at specific pieces, allowing for an intentional conversation about the neighborhood’s landscape.

Get tickets.

Eve Ensler in Conversation with Glenn Close
Manhattan, Uptown
Conversation, One Night Only

Glenn Close joins Eve Ensler — author of “The Vagina Monologues” — for a powerful conversation about the effects of abuse. Ensler’s new book “The Apology” provides overdue healing to both herself and her readers.

YES Talks
Brooklyn, Bushwick
Conversation

A home for everyone, House of Yes wants to talk about everything: radical self-love, queerology, anxiety, and astrophysics. You name it — it’s on the table. Take a seat, why don’t you?

Inheritance
Manhattan, Downtown
Immersive

The nature vs. nurture conversation has been taken to a whole new level. Artist Katya Stepanov’s immersive installation is an exploration of her life. You’ll leave her story with a new understanding of identity.

Twofold
Brooklyn, Bushwick
Immersive

What does it mean to be whole? Let acrobats, musicians, puppets, and a few surprises (hey, that’s life!) assist you as you search for the answer.

Dying City
Manhattan, Midtown
Off-Broadway, Play

The twin brother of a young widow’s husband knocks on the door. Written by Christopher Shinn, “Dying City” examines how the effects of global events ripple behind the closed doors of every home.

FunikiJam’s MUSIC GARDEN: Spring Celebration!
Manhattan, Midtown
Off-Broadway, Family, Musical

We all need a reason to dance. The Agents of Jam invite kids (ages 2 to 10) and families to celebrate Spring by “traveling” to Europe and South America through song and dance.
