When it comes to celebrating, don’t we each have a little Italian in us? Why not celebrate your “inner Italian” with a trip to Italy right here in New York!

With four Little Italys to visit in New York’s boroughs, there’s plenty to see and do. We’ll take a “tour” through each one, with an in-depth look at attractions, restaurants, markets, bakeries, shops; all that makes them uniquely Italian. Plus, we’ll “tour” another Little Italy in a city only two hours from New York. Complete itineraries, thorough information about each neighborhood and directions for car/public transportation/parking will all be provided. And, of course, prizes for all! Buon viaggio!

LaRue, Michele Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire History,
Museums,
Performing Arts- Theater
Many women fought against getting the vote in the early 1900s, but none with more charm, prettier clothes—and less logic—than the fictional speaker in this satiric monologue written by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe, in 1912. =Woman suffrage is the reform against nature= declares Howe’s unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine. =Get what you want. Pound pillows. Make a scene. Make home a hell on earth—but do it in a womanly way! That is so much more dignified and refined than walking up to a ballot box and dropping in a piece of paper!= Reviewers have called this production =wicked= in its wit, and Michèle LaRue’s performance =side-splitting.= LaRue is a professional actress who tours nationally with a repertoire of performances using works by writers of America's Gilded Age (Civil War - WW I). Dishes is a period satire written by pro-Suffragist Marie Jenney Howe and originally published in 1913, by the National American Woman Suffrage Association (precursor of the League of Women Voters). This production, produced by The East Lynne Company, premiered in March 1994, during New York City’s fourth-annual Womenkind Festival. Performance sites and presenters have included over 70 libraries, including Chicago’s Newberry.

Goldstein, Dana First Lady: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Changing Role of Women in American History History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Eleanor Roosevelt had a view of American History that few can rival. In this original, interactive production, Eleanor shares her amazing journey: from her sheltered childhood at the turn of the century, to her volunteer work, on to her support of women’s suffrage, her life as a First Lady through depression and war, and then beyond that, to her active role in the blossoming civil rights movement and her work at the United Nations, where she was figural in the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Eleanor Roosevelt wasn’t just a First Lady; she was First Lady of the World. First Lady introduces audiences to some of the most influential women of the 20th century. Historical music and audience interaction bring students closer to the people and events that helped transform the role of women in the United States. First Lady is available in March and is an ideal way to celebrate Women’s History Month.
