ANZAC Day 2015 - Centenary Commemoration of the ANZAC Landing

Australians and New Zealanders commemorate ANZAC Day on 25 April to recognise the sacrifices of New Zealand and Australian servicemen and servicewomen – not only in defending their country but in upholding their nations’ firmly held commitment to peace and security. 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand soldiers on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.

To mark this occasion, the Australian and New Zealand Consuls-General will co-host two commemorative services. We look forward to sharing this ANZAC Day with you. More⇒

CLINTON THE MUSICAL explores the two very different sides of the 42nd President of the United States: "WJ," the wholesome, intelligent one, and "Billy," the randy, charming one. With Hillary (Rodham) Clinton at their side, the two will handle issues from The White House to Whitewater, the sax to the sex, social security to social climbers, and in the process make history. Maybe. More⇒

59E59 Theaters, along with terraNOVA Collective will present the New York premiere of Underland by Australian playwright Alexandra Collier, starring Annie Golden ("Orange is the New Black," Violet).

Two teenage girls dream of escaping their dusty Australian town by digging a hole to China! Underland is a funny, irreverent, and magical play of love, loss and animal attacks.

Donors can "buy" items for production (everything from undies to fake blood to corrugated metal) and it goes towards the show's scenic and design budget and it's a really fun way to get a sneak peek at the props and costumes. Click here for details.
