After this edition of MUG, we're on a break, back July 8.




theater The summer theatrical migration finds most of the interesting plays and musicals performed outside the city in more sylvan settings, from Williamstown to Stratford. But this year, the Drama League inaugurates counterprogramming with the launch of First Stage Festival, July 29-August 9, during which 10 new works get 10 hours with 10 directors to focus on an aspect of fledgling plays and musicals. Free, but tickets required.




food Tomorrow from 1-5, Italian fine comestibles purveyor Gustiamo hosts its Annual Summer Open Warehouse and Pizza Challenge in the Bronx. Great food shopping and free pizza. RSVP



movie The Chambermaid, directed by Lila Avilés, opens Wednesday, June 26 at Film Forum. While there is a certain desolation to the depiction of a day in the life of a Mexico City chambermaid at an upscale hotel, there is also a keenly observed and heartening humanity and more than a dash of humor.



music Brooklyn-based indie band Wilder Maker plays an ACLU benefit at Trans-Pecos tomorrow, June 22. Their new single, Love So Well, is also lead vocalist Katie Von Schleicher's last recording with the group. [Photo: Annie Del Hierro]
