Disney's Aladdin

Tuesdays-Sundays, 1, 2, 6:30 & 7:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 13, 2019

It’s “A Whole New World” for beloved monkey-owning, “street urchin” Aladdin — and that world is the Broadway stage. It’s been 26 years since Disney took us on an unforgettable animated magic carpet ride through Agrabah with mega-babe Princess Jasmine, poverty-stricken hottie Aladdin, and Robin Williams’ famously voiced blue dude, Genie. This time around, Aladdin reaches new heights (literally — there’s a friggin’ flying carpet) with a stunning stage spectacle brought to life by producers of The Lion King, with direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw. $75

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free
