In the 1980s, Bill Cosby was America’s primetime dad as the gruff, lovable, and flamboyantly sweatered Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable on NBC's The Cosby Show. Though the sitcom patriarch was perhaps his most memorable role, it only served as one facet of a multitalented artist who has earned Grammys, Emmys, a Presidential Medal of Freedom, a doctorate in education, and dozens of other awards and recognitions. Today, at age 75, he continues to delight and inspire a whole new generation by flooding his Facebook and Twitter accounts with his signature brand of offbeat observations and cantankerous humor. Audience members get the chance to experience live the kind of offbeat ebullience he displays in regular videos, in which he dances to Toots and the Maytals and admits that one of his favorite ways to deepen a conversation is to ask, "How do you eat your Oreos?"
Saint Peter’s PAC
The design of St. Aedan’s—the crown jewel of Saint Peter’s PAC’s network of event spaces—all but guarantees world-class bookings. With all the majesty of the 1,200-seat cathedral’s intricate brickwork and dazzling stained-glass windows bearing down on it, the stage seems to demand talent big enough to match the space’s grandeur. Throngs of polished marble pillars and golden angels flank internationally acclaimed musicians, choirs, and comedians. Several more modern venues also dot the campus, including an arena, several more intimate theaters and performance cubbies, and a new cabaret space backed by the Manhattan skyline.
