Tickets are now on sale for TRUE STORIES, playing at the Cherry Lane Theatre from April 28 to May 17, 2020

New York, N.Y. – In a trip to Hell and back… a struggling actor decides God wants him to be a monk; a woman’s birth is the result of 1960’s wild key parties, martinis, and Manhattans leaving her with one burning question: Who is her biological father?; a psychiatrist divorces his wife and religion to find his authentic self only to learn that escaping daddy issues is more daunting; a girl from out West finds that the search for perfect love has turned her into a wandering, reckless cowboy; and an actor goes back to his roots after a career that has been a series of encounters of escalating surreality. These are stories told with heart, humor, and the searing honesty that can only happen when your past catches up with you and all that is left is the truth.

Exhibition Dates:              On view through April 9, 2020

Exhibition Location:         The Met Fifth Avenue, The Great Hall

New York, N.Y. (December 17, 2019) — The Metropolitan Museum of Art today unveiled two monumental new works by Cree artist Kent Monkman in the Museum's main entrance hall. The Great Hall Commission: Kent Monkman, mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) consists of two paintings—Welcoming the Newcomers and Resurgence of the People—that will be on view through April 9, 2020. The installation is part of a new series of contemporary commissions at The Met in which the Museum invites artists to create new works of art to establish a dialogue between the artist's practice, The Met collection, the physical Museum, and The Met's audiences. Monkman's paintings reappropriate images, motifs, and techniques from art history to express Indigenous people's experiences and histories, subverting the predominate narratives of Euro-American culture, while also addressing present-day issues.
