Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden Exhibit: “Who Do You Say You Are? Approaches to Portraiture Then and Now”

This historic house provides a fitting context for a look at portraiture from the 19th century to the present time – from America and abroad.

Open during Museum hours.

"Enter Laughing: The Musical" at York Theater Company

Based on Carl Reiner’s semi-autobiographical novel and Joseph Stein’s stage adaptation, this hilariously tuneful musical careens through the misadventures of star-struck, stage-struck, woman-struck teenager David Kolowitz, who pratfalls his way into manhood via the theatre in 1930s New York City. Enter Laughing: The Musical is the perfect show for anyone who has ever had a dream of stardom, an overbearing mother, a song in their heart, or just needs a heartfelt, side-splitting laughfest.

"Feral" at 59E59 Theaters

Joe looks back at the town of his childhood. Bright, vibrant, and idyllic, the world resembles a haven of comfort. But as Joe journeys on, walls and lives are peeled back and the story of a community’s fall unfolds around him. Feral is an innovative piece of visual theater that combines puppetry, film, and live sound to create and destroy a world in front of its audience’s eyes. Puppeteers manipulate and bring to life a tiny world, whilst simultaneously creating a live animation, as they follow its every breath via digital camera.

"Posting Letters to the Moon" at 59E59 Theaters

Posting Letters To The Moon is a romantic, funny, and touching portrait of life during the early 1940s featuring readings of wartime letters between Oscar- nominated actress Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter) and her explorer and writer husband Peter Fleming (brother of James Bond creator Ian Fleming). Their daughter, Lucy Fleming, alongside her own husband, Simon Williams, reads these touching and amusing letters that tell of Celia’s experiences during the war: coping with a large isolated house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, dealing with rationing, holidays in Cornwall where she took to surfing, and all the while accepting offers, when she could get away, to act — for David Lean, Noël Coward, wartime propaganda films, and ultimately starring in the classic film Brief Encounter.
