Hillary, Kanye, Oprah—Inside Ralph Lauren’s Epic 50th Anniversary Show

It would be easier to draw up a list of who was not at Ralph Lauren’s epic 50th anniversary show and bash last night in Central Park. Figures ranged from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to film icon Steven Spielberg to music impresario Kanye West, which reinforced the idea that Lauren’s reach spans across cultures and industries to resonate with everyone. That sentiment was on display yesterday evening, where the designer’s runway show was matched by famous-faced friends clad in his attire, who took their seats for an inimitable evening. And for some of Lauren’s most buzzy clients, the memories of wearing him go back to the designer’s start as a tie designer.

Signature Plays’ by Albee, Fornés, and Kennedy Traverse the Inner Landscapes of Grief

" Albee’s The Sandbox (first produced in 1962), which opens the evening: It’s preceded by a burst of ominous recorded music — Brandon Wolcott’s sound score supplies attention-grabbing distraction throughout — that’s irrelevant to the intentionally banal Pop Art beach scene Albee has conceived (which Mimi Lien’s set captures nicely). It’s also superfluous, since Albee’s script requests, and gets, live accompaniment by a solo cellist (whose music, by William Flanagan, is very apt, and extremely well played by Melody Giron)." -  Michael Feigold
