NY1's weekly segment "Your Weekend Starts Now" provides entertaining picks for great things to do around the city this weekend.
Lynda Carter: Body & Soul
Lynda Carter doesn't need a lasso to bring in the fans. The "Wonder Woman" star is showing off her musical powers at Jazz at Lincoln Center this Friday and Saturday night. Hear her unique take on vocal powerhouses like Billie Holiday and Adele in her new show, called "Body & Soul." Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $30 to $85.
This Saturday hear the miraculous Smokey Robinson perform hits like "Tears of a Clown" and "Ooh Baby, Baby" live at the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $55 to $85. You can also spend another $50 to attend a meet-and-greet with Mr. Robinson himself.
Roslyn Kind in Concert
Also on Saturday, visit the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts to see the one-of-a-kind Roslyn Kind in concert. Sure, she's Barbara Streisand's younger sister, but she has great voice and star persona all her own. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $35. VIP passes to the concert and reception cost $175.
When Everything Was Possible, A Concert
Yes, theater lovers, it's possible! Veteran Broadway performers Kurt Peterson and Victoria Mallory reunite on the New York stage after 40 years in "When Everything Was Possible, A Concert" at City Center. It's a benefit show for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Showtime is Sunday at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $60 to $150.
Through May 26, see a brutal but darkly funny interpretation of Macbeth, off Broadway at the 47th Street Theatre. Then stick around for a discussion with "The Epic Theatre Ensemble" cast. There will be post-performance forums with the actors and scholars after each show. Tickets are $35.
"Totems of New York" and "Spring Flowers"
And here's a web-only pick: It's "Totems of New York" and "Spring Flowers," a two-man show of paintings and photography at Drifter Art Gallery, 455 W. 43rd St. in Hell's Kitchen. The opening reception is Thursday, April 26 from 6-9 p.m. and the show runs from April 26 to May 6. "Totems of New York" showcases the work of painter Nick Stavrides and "Spring Flowers" showcases Anthony Collins.
