another bard, another park

OUTDOOR THEATER IS one of our city’s purest traditions: gorgeous performances in green surroundings, free for all. Certainly this summer, open-air productions are a civic lifeline—but at the Classical Theatre of Harlem, the gathering has taken on an even more intense sense of mission. For years, CTH’s Uptown Shakespeare in the Park at Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park presented the European canon, including Antigone, Romeo and Juliet, and The Bacchae. This summer, though, producing artistic director Ty Jones has put up a new classic, Will Power’s Seize the King, a contemporary verse play built on old bones. A decade before Hamilton, in plays like Flow (2003) and The Seven (2006), Power established a hip-hop theater tradition. With Seize the King, he engages an older lyric strategy, slicing through contemporary…

best bets 100 teen poll:

What Is Actually Cool to Buy in 2021? ➸ WHEN WE LAST POLLED this age group, two years and a pandemic ago, American Eagle mom jeans were the thing, as were square sunglasses. From our new pool of responders, who replied to our survey from (among other places) New York, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Hong Kong, Vail, and Madrid (78 percent of them identified as female, 6 percent as male, 5 percent as nonbinary, and 11 percent didn’t specify), we learned a lot can change in a couple of years—TikTok is now the ultimate influencer, claw clips have overtaken scrunchies, and the Ordinary is hot on Glossier’s heels. TikTok Is Prompting All Sorts of Purchases IN THE PAST FEW YEARS, TikTok has emerged, essentially, as an adolescent HSN—and the reason respondents said they…

the group portrait: america’s tastemakers

WHAT DOES A STRAWBERRY TASTE LIKE? It depends. Do you mean a fresh strawberry, a ripe strawberry, a jammy strawberry? Because it matters, says Elaine Kellman, a flavorist at Citromax in Carlstadt, New Jersey, who has spent the past 30 years breaking down taste sensations into their chemical parts. To capture the full-bodied sweetness of an ultraripe strawberry, “you would take a strawberry flavor and add chemicals like maltol and furaneol,” whereas a jammy one might need a hint of jasmine, and a fresh one might require a dash of grassy cis-3-hexenal. There are, by most estimates, only about 500 flavorists in the U.S., and if you have eaten food from a box in America, you have certainly tasted their work. Flavorists are responsible for the end of the ingredients list,…

‘were you in veggie nirvana?’

IT HAS BEEN ABOUT A MONTH since the chef Daniel Humm unveiled the newest menu at his extravagant, almost comically luxurious Manhattan restaurant Eleven Madison Park. The big news, of course, is that this latest iteration of EMP (which was once known for dishes like lavender-glazed duck and opulent blocks of slow-cooked pork) eschews animal products, instead offering a fully plant-based meal. Does it live up to the hype and the price? Food critic Adam Platt and Grub Street’s writer Rachel Sugar weigh in. Rachel Sugar: Before we get to the actual meal, which cost $729.46 for two people plus $168.76 for drinks, let’s clarify that our main goal was to get two different perspectives—mine as a vegan and yours as a longtime restaurant critic—on the new food at Daniel Humm’s…

ALWAYS THEY FIND US inappropriate, but today especially so. Here we are with nowhere to go and nothing to do, sitting in a rusty pickup truck, the one leaking oil, the one with the busted transmission that sounds like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Here we are with the engine running for the AC, the doors wide open for our bare legs to spill out. Because this, right here, to survive the heat, this is all we have. An hour ago we became outcasts. One of us—not me—would not shut the fuck up. And since the grandmas are prepping for the monks and need to focus, we’ve been banished outside to choke on traces of manure blown in from the asparagus farms surrounding us, our hometown, this shitty place of boring dudes…
