After all of last month’s holiday cheer, many are content to skip the small talk by taking in a little culture after work. Placido Domingo will hold the crowd’s attention in “The Enchanted Island” at the Metropolitan Opera Thursday night, and “Tosca” debuts Tuesday with Patricia Racette in the leading role.
Theatergoers can be among the first to see Jim Dale, Carla Gugino and Rosemary Harris in “The Road to Mecca,” which is in previews at the American Airlines Theater. And Cynthia Nixon can be found gearing up for the Jan. 26 opening of “Wit” at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater. Over at the Richard Rodgers Theater, Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier will headline “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess,” starting Thursday. Less proven talent can be found at the Under the Radar Festival, organized by The Public Theater and under way at various venues throughout the city through Sunday.
