The White Plains Performing Arts Center (WPPAC) is proud to announce its upcoming Mainstage production of SIDE SHOW, playing April 22 – May 8.

From the composer of Dreamgirls comes a remarkable, true story of famed entertainers and twins, Violet and Daisy Hilton, who became famous during the 1930’s. SIDE SHOW is a moving portrait of two women whose bond brings them the spectacle of fame, but denies them true love and acceptance.

As the starring act of a downtrodden touring sideshow on the Orpheum Circuit; they are eager to accept an offer of fame, fortune and potential romance proffered by talent scouts Terry and Buddy who ultimately launch The Hilton Sisters into Hollywood stardom. Nominated for 4 TONY Awards (including Best Score, Best Book and Best Musical); SIDE SHOW is a stunning reminder of the importance to accept and celebrate what makes us unique; a story that will undoubtedly touch your heart. 

The cast of SIDE SHOW is led by Jack Brewer (Cinderella: MUNY) as Buddy, Andrew Foote (Jekyll & Hyde, Les Mis Tours) as the Boss, Bronson Norris Murphy (Broadway:The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies Tour) as Terry, Rebecca Kuznick (Sistas) as Violet, Emily Kristen Morris (Something Rotten Tour) as Daisy and Miguel Ángel Vásquez (Ragtime, Showboat)  in the role of Jake.

Rounding out the cast is Matthew Blum, Brianna Brice, Logan Graye, Matt Henningsen, Keith Mankowski, Jenna Leigh Miller, Taylor Okey, David Neil Ossman, Alexander Rothfield, Emily Royer, Rebecca Skowron and Rosie Staudt.

“We are so excited to get to bring the original 1997 version of this show to our stage this season. says Stephen Ferri Executive Producer of WPPAC. “The show has been a personal favorite of mine for years and we look forward to giving the Side Show fans another chance to see this rarely done show while exposing a new generation of audiences to this beautiful show.”

“25 years later, SIDE SHOW resonates today more than ever. The show is a call for authentic universal empathy in order to advance our understanding of the human experience. We will only make meaningful change and progress once we remediate marginalization in all its forms in our society. In order to do that, SIDE SHOW asks us to find and see the other in each other.” Says Director Frank Portanova.

SIDE SHOW is Directed by Frank Portanova with Music Direction by Stephen Ferri and Choreography by Antoinette DiPietropolo. Scenic Design by Christopher & Justin Swader, Lighting Design by Daisy Long, Sound Design by Jon Weston, Stage Managed by Suzi Bonnot. Music by Henry Krieger, Book & Lyrics by Bill Russell.

SIDE SHOW will play the White Plains Performing Arts Center Friday, April 22 8pm; Saturday, April 23 8pm; Sunday, April 24 2pm; Thursday, April 28 2pm; Friday, April 29 8pm; Saturday, April 30 8pm; Sunday, May 1 2pm; Thursday, May 5 2pm; Friday, May 6 8pm; Saturday, May 7 8pm; and Sunday, May 8 2pm.

The White Plains Performing Arts Center is located on the third level of City Center off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains, minutes from the White Plains Metro North Station.

The Aldrich Taps NYC Emerging Female Artists for 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone Opens June 6 at The Aldrich https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4813-52-artists-a-feminist-milestone-opens-june-6-at-the-aldrich4813-52-artists-a-feminist-milestone-opens-june-6-at-the-aldrich https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4813-52-artists-a-feminist-milestone-opens-june-6-at-the-aldrich4813-52-artists-a-feminist-milestone-opens-june-6-at-the-aldrich

52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone - June 4, 2022 to January 8, 2023

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce the list of twenty-six emerging artists participating in the landmark presentation of 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone, on view June 4, 2022 to January 8, 2023.

The exhibition celebrates the fifty-first anniversary of the historic exhibition Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 1971.

52 Artists will showcase work by the artists included in the original 1971 exhibition, alongside a new roster of twenty-six female identifying or nonbinary emerging artists that were born in or after 1980, tracking the evolution of feminist art practices over the past five decades. The new generation of artists included in the exhibition are:

Leilah Babirye
Phoebe Berglund
LaKela Brown
Lea Cetera
Susan Chen
Pamela Council
Lizania Cruz
Amaryllis DeJesus Moleski
Florencia Escudero
Alanna Fields
Emilie L. Gossiaux
Ilana Harris-Babou
Loie Hollowell
Maryam Hoseini
Hannah Levy
Catalina Ouyang
Anna Park
Erin M. Riley
LJ Roberts
Aya Rodriguez-Izumi
Aliza Shvarts
Astrid Terrazas
Rachel Eulena Williams
Kiyan Williams
Stella Zhong

The new artists, who are all based in New York City, will have not had a major solo museum exhibition in the United States as of March 1, 2022, aligning both with The Aldrich’s mission of representing the work of emerging artists and with Lippard’s original mandate for the 1971 exhibition.

“This group of 26 emerging artists reflect the revolutionary advancement of feminist art practices over half a century and exhibit a diversity of experiences and a multiplicity of sensibilities united by a twenty-first century feminist expression that is inclusive, expansive, elastic, and free,” said The Aldrich’s Senior Curator Amy Smith-Stewart, who curated the contemporary selection.

52 Artists will encompass the entirety of the Museum (approx. 8,000 sq. ft)—the first exhibition to do so since The Aldrich’s new building was inaugurated in 2004. The exhibition is organized by The Aldrich’s Senior Curator Amy Smith-Stewart and independent curator Alexandra Schwartz, with The Aldrich’s Curatorial Assistant Caitlin Monachino.

“52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone is one of our most ambitious exhibitions to date,” said Cybele Maylone, Executive Director of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. “The exhibition charts the Museum’s commitment to emerging and underrepresented artists over time, and offers an unparalleled opportunity for vital scholarship about the historic legacy of the 1971 exhibition. We are delighted to bring together this exceptional roster of artists for this timely and important show.”

On view at The Aldrich from April 18 to June 13, 1971, Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists was organized by writer, art critic, activist, and curator Lucy R. Lippard, who viewed curating this landmark exhibition as an activist gesture. In its catalogue, she states: “I took on this show because I knew there were many women artists whose work was as good or better than that currently being shown, but who, because of the prevailingly discriminatory policies of most galleries and museums, can rarely get anyone to visit their studios or take them as seriously as their male counterparts.” With this exhibition, Lippard arguably founded feminist curatorial practice in this country.

52 Artists will survey this landmark exhibition, including works of art from the original exhibition and recreations of some of the more ephemeral pieces, and, if neither are available, related works from the same period. The exhibition will also include recent works by many of the original artists, examining how their practices have evolved over the past fifty years. By showing the original group alongside emerging artists of today, the exhibition will testify both to the historic impact of Lippard’s milestone exhibition and the influence of the original twenty-six artists she presented at The Aldrich on a new generation of artists.

Lippard’s original 1971 exhibition at The Aldrich was one of the first institutional responses to the issue of women artists’ invisibility in museums and galleries. More specifically, the show offered a rejoinder to the protests by the Ad Hoc Women Artists Committee (founded by Poppy Johnson, Brenda Miller, Faith Ringgold, and Lucy Lippard) over the absence of women in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s 1970 Sculpture Annual. Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists opened the floodgates to a host of other feminist exhibitions throughout the 1970s, signaling Lippard’s emergence as a visionary feminist curator and critic and marking the debut of many groundbreaking artists. 52 Artists not only celebrates this radical exhibition but underscores its ongoing influence on future generations of artists.

The original 1971 catalogue was designed by architect and scholar Susana Torre. A new, 200-page softcover book designed by Gretchen Kraus, The Aldrich’s Design Director, and co-published with Gregory R. Miller & Co., will accompany the exhibition. This significant catalogue will include new essays by Lippard, Smith-Stewart, and Schwartz, as well as rare historical documentation of the original exhibition, images, installation views, and checklists from both the 1971 and 2022 shows.

Free Rabies Vaccine Clinic for Westchester Pets In New Rochelle https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4811-free-rabies-vaccine-clinic-for-westchester-pets-in-new-rochelle4811-free-rabies-vaccine-clinic-for-westchester-pets-in-new-rochelle https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4811-free-rabies-vaccine-clinic-for-westchester-pets-in-new-rochelle4811-free-rabies-vaccine-clinic-for-westchester-pets-in-new-rochelle

Westchester County residents can bring their dogs, cats and ferrets for free rabies vaccinations on Sunday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Stamen Animal Hospital, 61 Quaker Ridge Road in New Rochelle.  Appointments are required. Call 914-632-1269 for more information.

An adult must supervise all pets. Cats and ferrets must be in carriers and dogs must be on a leash. Aggressive dogs must be muzzled. No examinations will be given.

“Vaccinating your pet against rabies will protect your pet and your family in case your pet has contact with a rabid or potentially rabid animal,” said Westchester County Health Commissioner, Sherlita Amler, MD. 

Under New York State law, dogs and cats must receive their first rabies vaccine no later than four months after birth. A second rabies shot must be given within one year of the first vaccine, with additional booster shots given every one or three years after that, depending on the vaccine used.  Owners who fail to get their pets vaccinated and keep the vaccinations up-to-date may be fined up to $2,000.

Rabies is a fatal disease that spreads through the bite or saliva of infected animals.  Those animals most commonly infected are raccoons, skunks, bats and foxes.  However, domestic animals such as cats and dogs are also at risk because they can easily contract rabies from wild or stray animals.

A pet that is up-to-date with its rabies vaccinations would only need a booster dose of vaccine within five days of the pet’s exposure to a known or suspect rabid animal.  Animals not up-to-date with rabies vaccinations would be quarantined or euthanized following contact with a rabid or suspect-rabid animal. 

A change in an animal’s behavior is often the first sign of rabies.  A rabid animal may become either abnormally aggressive or unusually tame.  It may lose fear of people and become docile, or become excited and irritable.  Infected animals sometimes stagger, spit and froth at the mouth.  Children should be discouraged from touching unfamiliar animals, and to tell an adult right away if they have been bitten or scratched by an animal.

All animal bites or contacts with animals suspected of having rabies must be reported to the Westchester County Health Department at (914) 813-5000.  After hours, callers should follow instructions in the recorded message for reporting public health emergencies 24 hours a day. 

To learn more about rabies and its prevention, visit the Health Department’s website at www.westchestergov.com/health; like us on Facebook at facebook.com/wchealthdept or follow us on

‘Visions of Home Lands’ Art Exhibition To Benefit Hearts & Homes for Refugees Original Paintings by Lori Kapner Hosp White Plains Library Museum Gallery, April 3 - May 27 Opening Reception: April 3, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00 P.M.

A collection of original paintings, entitled “Visions of Home Lands”, by local artist and Hearts & Homes for Refugees Board member Lori Kapner Hosp will be on exhibition at the White Plains Library Museum Gallery from April 3 through May 27, 2022.

Proceeds from the sale of paintings will go to Westchester-based Hearts & Homes for Refugees (www.HeartsandHomesforRefugees.org), an organization that welcomes, assists and advocates for refugee families in the region.

“My paintings are an homage to the bravery, kindness and exuberance of our new neighbors who bring so much to our communities. Each piece in the ‘Visions of Home Lands’ collection offers a narrative about the people, traditions or culture of the country it represents, and celebrates the beauty and richness of the worlds from which many of us come”, Hosp explains. (More information about Hosp and her artwork is available HERE.

Hosp began painting for personal enjoyment but in recent years undertook new works with a specific purpose: to assist refugees and asylees in our communities to become self-sufficient in their new home land. Both the refugee families and the dedicated volunteers whom she has met, through her work as a volunteer and Board member of Hearts & Homes for Refugees, inspired and informed this work.

An opening reception will be held on Sunday April 3, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

Fordham University taps first layperson and the first woman to be the 33rd President https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4807-fordham-university-taps-first-layperson-and-the-first-woman-to-be-the-33rd-president4807-fordham-university-taps-first-layperson-and-the-first-woman-to-be-the-33rd-president https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4807-fordham-university-taps-first-layperson-and-the-first-woman-to-be-the-33rd-president4807-fordham-university-taps-first-layperson-and-the-first-woman-to-be-the-33rd-president

In a letter to the extended Fordham family and community, today, Robert D. Daleo, Chair, Fordham University Board of Trustees announced that Tania Tetlow, J.D., the 33rd President of Fordham University. President-Elect Tetlow will be the first layperson and the first woman to occupy the post in Fordham’s 181-year history. She will take office on July 1, 2022.

Daleo said that Tania Tetlow is a member of the Fordham family: her late father, Louis Mulry Tetlow, a psychologist and former Jesuit priest, received his Ph.D. from Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) in 1974, four years after earning a master’s degree from Fordham; and President-Elect Tetlow’s mother, Elisabeth M. Tetlow, is also a double GSAS graduate, classes of 1967 and 1970, with master’s degrees in philosophy and theology. President-Elect Tetlow’s parents met and married at Fordham, and she was born in New York before moving to New Orleans.

Please read Daleo's complete message below.

President-Elect Tetlow comes to Fordham from Loyola University New Orleans, where she has served as president since August 2018. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, in 1995, and her Bachelor of Arts in American studies from Tulane University, cum laude, in 1992. Among her other honors, she was a Harry S. Truman Scholar. Prior to being named president of Loyola, she held the office of senior vice president and chief of staff at Tulane University from 2015 to 2018. She also served at Tulane as associate provost for international affairs, the Felder-Fayard Professor of Law, and director of Tulane’s domestic violence clinic.

Arriving at Loyola during the most challenging period in its financial history, President Tetlow successfully led a turnaround of the university, launching new academic programs and increasing enrollment and student retention. Loyola grew revenue and the endowment, improved its bond ratings, and returned to financial stability, all during a global pandemic. President Tetlow is beloved at Loyola for her compassionate and transparent leadership.

Before that, President-Elect Tetlow served as a key part of Tulane University’s remarkable leap forward in admissions, rankings, diversity, research strength, and fundraising. As senior vice president and chief of staff to Tulane’s president, she played a crucial role in the strategy of culture change, adding new ambition to an institution already doing really well. And she led Tulane’s efforts to make meaningful progress on race and equity, and on addressing campus sexual assault.  

“Tania Tetlow has in abundance the qualities of leadership one needs to run a major university, among them discernment, patience, decisiveness, self-awareness, and magnanimity,” Father McShane said of her. “Her commitment to Jesuit pedagogy and to Fordham’s Jesuit, Catholic mission is both deep and well-informed. I shall rest easy with her in the office I have occupied for almost two decades.”

The Board of Trustees and the search committee were deeply impressed by Tania Tetlow from the moment we met her. She is deeply rooted in, and a strong proponent of, Ignatian spirituality, and will be a champion of Fordham’s Jesuit, Catholic mission and identity. She has a deep understanding of and comprehensive vision for undergraduate liberal arts and sciences, the Gabelli School of Business, Fordham Law, and all of the graduate and professional schools of the University. With her permission, I am sharing the last paragraph of her candidacy letter to the Board of Trustees:

 “The generation of students we recruit craves institutions like Fordham with clear values. They also, however, want something more than virtue. Born during the Great Recession, made cynical by the events of their childhood, they want to fix a broken world. They push on assumptions, question authority, and have remarkable courage. What they don’t know (until we tell them) is that there is nothing more Jesuit than that.”

Joseph M. O’Keefe, S.J., GSAS ’81, the provincial of the USA East Province of the Society of Jesus, said, “I am delighted to welcome Tania Tetlow to the Jesuits USA East Province, where she will lead one of our most important sponsored works, Fordham University. She has deep family ties to the University. Along with her extensive leadership experience, President-Elect Tetlow brings a thorough grounding in Jesuit, Ignatian, Catholic identity to her new mission. I look forward to collaborating closely with her in the coming years.”

Tania Tetlow is a member of the Fordham family: her late father, Louis Mulry Tetlow, a psychologist and former Jesuit priest, received his Ph.D. from Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) in 1974, four years after earning a master’s degree from Fordham; and President-Elect Tetlow’s mother, Elisabeth M. Tetlow, is also a double GSAS graduate, classes of 1967 and 1970, with master’s degrees in philosophy and theology. President-Elect Tetlow’s parents met and married at Fordham, and she was born in New York before moving to New Orleans.

President-Elect Tetlow’s uncle Joseph Tetlow, S.J., served for eight years in Rome as head of the Secretariat for Ignatian Spirituality, and has held other important roles ranging from president of the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley to associate editor of America Magazine. Father Tetlow continues to write seminal texts on Ignatian spirituality, now from the Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House in Lake Dallas, Texas. 

Tania Tetlow is married to Gordon Stewart, originally from Glasgow, Scotland. They have a 9-year-old daughter, Lucy, and a stepson, Noah.  

This is a historic and exciting moment for Fordham. As a university that seeks to transform its students’ lives, we are preparing to be transformed by bold new leadership—leadership that will build upon Father McShane’s legacy of academic achievement and institutional growth. I know you all join me in giving Tania Tetlow a warm welcome to Fordham. We look forward to working with her in the years to come in furthering Fordham’s distinctly Jesuit mission in the greatest city of the world.

Westchester High School Student Creates an Event to Help Foster Awareness Around Teen Mental Health https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4806-westchester-high-school-student-creates-an-event-to-help-foster-awareness-around-teen-mental-health4806-westchester-high-school-student-creates-an-event-to-help-foster-awareness-around-teen-mental-health https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4806-westchester-high-school-student-creates-an-event-to-help-foster-awareness-around-teen-mental-health4806-westchester-high-school-student-creates-an-event-to-help-foster-awareness-around-teen-mental-health

Sarah Nabi, a sophomore at Hendrick Hudson High School is creating an event to be held on Sunday, May 1st from 3-5pm at Congregation Sons of Israel located 1666 Pleasantville Rd, Briarcliff Manor, NY dedicated to fostering awareness about teen mental health.  Sarah is calling the event, “No Stigma.”

The event, which is free to the public, will feature a keynote speaker trained in teen mental health, a nutrition worship led by Stacy Hendrie, a certified health coach, mental health workshop, a meditation workshop and refreshments. Sarah has also created a website for the event where she will be posting information as the date gets closer:  https://www.nostigmateen.com  

The pandemic and the isolation from a year plus of remote learning has led many teens to experience mental health challenges. Sarah’s goal for this first event is to remove the stigma around mental health conversations for teens. 

As Sarah says, “Many people struggle with mental health at some point in their lives, but it’s hard to talk about it and to ask for help without feeling like there is something wrong with you. Our aim is to remove the stigma around teen mental health conversations.”

Sarah’s initiative is her way of honoring her great-grandfather who was a World War I veteran and a recipient of the Victoria Cross who suffered from undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder. 

Sarah says, “Because there was no knowledge about mental illness and PTSD, my great- grandfather was left unsupported and unable to cope with his trauma. I want to avoid what happened to my great-grandfather by starting conversations that weren’t started then due to societal stigma. My wish for this event is for teens to be equipped with tools to better understand themselves and what they are going through.”

There is no charge to attend Sarah’s event but registration is required by emailing nostigmainfo@gmail.com.  Sarah has also set up a GoFundMe campaign to help defray the costs of the event which she and her family are absorbing. Any additional funds remaining after paying for the costs will be donated to Active Minds, a non-profit organization promoting teen mental health. Donations can be made using this link: https://gofund.me/14d6b8c7

Sarah says, “with this event, we hope to start conversations about teen mental health wherever those discussions are needed.”

Westchester in the Spotlight as HBO’s The Gilded Age Premieres Tonight! https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4805-westchester-in-the-spotlight-as-hbo-s-the-gilded-age-premieres-january-24th4805-westchester-in-the-spotlight-as-hbo-s-the-gilded-age-premieres-january-24th https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4805-westchester-in-the-spotlight-as-hbo-s-the-gilded-age-premieres-january-24th4805-westchester-in-the-spotlight-as-hbo-s-the-gilded-age-premieres-january-24th

Westchester is in the spotlight with the January 24 premiere of the new HBO historical drama series, “The Gilded Age.”

The new show is set in the rapidly changing world of 1880s New York, during a time of unprecedented industrial growth in America. The story follows the millionaire titans at the upper echelons of New York society engaged in a battle between the nouveau riche and old money. It’s the latest creation from Julian Fellowes, the writer and producer best known for “Downton Abbey,” and a showcase for glamorous costumes and beautiful backdrops — many of right here in Westchester.

County Executive George Latimer said: “It’s no surprise that producers of “The Gilded Age” chose to film in Westchester. We have fantastic locations — including several historically significant sites — and a huge diversity of spaces that can be used creatively to accommodate everything a production needs.” 

The story starts with a young Marian Brook, played by Louisa Jacobson, who moves after the death of her father from rural Pennsylvania to live with her rich aunts, Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook, acted by Christine Baranski and Cynthia Nixon, respectively. The plot follows Marion as she becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money set, and her rich neighbors, a ruthless railroad tycoon and his wife.

Filming for “The Gilded Age” took place over several months in late 2020 and early 2021. Scenes were filmed on dirt roads and in historic cabins at the Edith Macy Conference Center in Briarcliff Manor, Glenview at Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, Sleepy Hollow Country Club, and inside the mansion and on the grounds at Lyndhurst and Belvedere Estate in Tarrytown. Pace University in Pleasantville was used as a film location and cast and crew basecamp.

Seeking a variety of looks that would recreate 1880s New York, producers scouted Westchester County, where wealthy New Yorkers actually escaped city life during the Gilded Age, according to David Crockett, executive producer.

Crockett said: “We were committed to an authentic feel and wanted the show to be a New York show, an American show. And Westchester came through for us. We created Manhattan locations of the era including a grand mansion and hotel exteriors, the interior of coffee and cake saloon, a downtown printing press, tavern, and the exterior of a ferry terminal. Westchester offered unbelievable assets and we will be back.”

Filming during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic presented production challenges that were eased by filming in Westchester, according to Lauri Pitkus, location scout. “On any given day our production involved 150 to 300 people. So, we were not only looking for historic looks but larger properties where we could park our trucks, construct tents for cast and crew operations, and have park-like grounds where we could operate like a campus. Westchester offered flexibility in that we could stay for multiple days, find as many creative looks as possible in one place, and observe COVID protocols.”

All the glamor – and practical benefits too

Westchester County Tourism & Film Director Natasha Caputo said: “It’s a point of hometown pride to see our locations featured in glamorous productions like The Gilded Age. Not only does film activity provide excitement, it’s a great boon for local businesses that welcome cast and crew to their hotels, restaurants, and tourist destinations.”

Lyndhurst, for example, is one of the places open to the public that people can visit after seeing the show. “The period of the Gilded Age is a major part of Lyndhurst’s history and we worked closely with the production team to bring this to life,” said Howard Zar, executive director.  “Our staff has a long history of helping our film industry collaborators achieve their objectives and succeed. Working with the Gilded Age and other marquee productions over the years has been  a positive experience for us. It allows Lyndhurst to reach new audiences in a completely different way.”

Added Crockett: “After especially long days on set, we appreciated having hotels nearby for our cast and crew to stay. We were also happy to source construction materials and equipment in Westchester. The County was very responsive to our needs.”

Latimer added: “Productions like The Gilded Age showcase the amazing assets Westchester has to offer to film and television productions. They also shine a light on the importance of the film industry, which generates $45.7 million in economic impact in Westchester.”

The Gilded Age premieres January 24 at 9pm on HBO.
