It's an Amazing End of the World Kind of Day Today

Rather an amazing and apocalyptic day in New York City! In film, it’s Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Medea and David Lynch’s Dune! In music, it’s !!! and Concrete Blonde and Berlioz’s Les Troyens at the Met — and John Wesley Harding and Robert Pinsky are performing a John Cage happening at Symphony Space. In readings and art, Jami Attenberg and Christine Schutt are at KGB Bar and a Henry Darger show opens at Ricco Maresca. In downers, and in a rather amazing thematic tie-up to all this, Madeleine Albright and Nick Kristof are talking about the U.N. and holocausts at the 92Y. My word! It’s all laid out here.
