What’s Up This Week?

Here are just a few of the highlights on tap this week. More info on these—and the full slate—is in the Tribeca calendar of events.

“Properties of Play,” Canal Park Playhouse’s improv-theater thingamajig—just watch the video—makes its fortnightly appearance.

The Tribeca Meet & Greet is at Tribeca Beauty Spa. Organized by the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, it’s for business owners to network and locals to just come say hi. Wine by Frankly Wines; nibblybits by MaxDelivery. ••• Sheryl Crow, who has a new cookbook (If It Makes You Healthy: More Than 100 Delicious Recipes…), is at Barnes & Noble Tribeca. Here’s one of Sheryl’s two best songs. Too bad about all the sexyface in the video, though.

TriBeCafe celebrates cherry-blossom time with a party—cheap drinks and proceeds benefiting Japan earthquake relief.

Speaking of Japan: City Winery’s big “Bridge to Japan” benefit is tonight. Lots of great talent.

Creepy movie Crash—not the Oscar winner, the David Cronenberg one about people who fetishize car accidents—is at 92YTribeca. “Great movie, huh?” I can hear someone asking you afterward. “Want a lift?”

The Museum of Chinese in America’s Qing Ming Festival will include “kite making workshops, a family tree workshop, arts and crafts drop in stations as well as teaching artists’ demonstrations.” ••• Princess Katie and Racer Steve play for the kids at 92YTribeca. ••• South African star Johnny Clegg is at City Winery. I saw him open for Tracy Chapman once—dating myself here—and he put on a heck of a show.

”Goldilocks and the Three Bears”—with live music—at Manhattan Children’s Theatre. More video!
