French duo Justice’s crazy mix of sounds has won a Grammy and the attention of dance-music fans.
Catch them tonight at Terminal 5.
Justice’s latest album, “Audio, Video, Disco,” combines heavy metal with Europop, and somehow it’s much better than you might expect.
At 610 West 56th Street. Information: +1-212-582-6600; http://www.terminal5nyc.com.
Check out Kehinde Wiley’s larger-than-life portraits at the Jewish Museum.
For this series, the artist found his urban male subjects in Israeli discos, bars and sports arenas.
The ornate backgrounds are based on Jewish papercuts, a selection of which are shown alongside Wiley’s work.
Head to the Parlor Steakhouse for a relaxing brunch.
Start with a Rose Bellini and then tuck into steak and eggs. Finish with apple-filled beignets.
At 1600 3rd Ave. Information: +1-212-423-5888.
Have fun watching the Paul Taylor Dance Company perform “Gossamer Gallants,” in which the men are amatory flies circling predatory female dancers.
Also on the program: the tender “Roses” and “Promethean Fire,” a transcendent work set to the music of Bach.
All have the Taylor spirit -- at 81, the choreographer is still going strong.
A love so profound, it manifests from beyond the grave -- that’s the premise of “Ghost,” first the film and now the musical.
Based on the 1990 hit with Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, the show features a book by original screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, with music by Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard.
British director Matthew Warchus staged the musical in London and now brings it to Broadway with stars Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy.
In previews at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, 205 W. 46th St. for an April 23 opening. Information: +1-877-250-2929; http://www.ghostonbroadway.com.
Keith Haring’s early work is the focus of a new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.
The show traces the development of his instantly recognizable visual imagery in sketchbooks, subway drawings and other rarely seen objects.
Experimental videos include his first, “Painting Myself into a Corner,” and “Tribute to Gloria Vanderbilt.”
“Keith Haring: 1978-1982” runs through July 8 at 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn. Information: +1-718-638-5000; http://www.brooklynmuseum.org.
At Carnegie Hall, you’ll meet the charming gypsy Esmeralda, who bewitches every man she meets with her seductive tunes, today sung by soprano Lori Guilbeau.
Leon Botstein leads the American Symphony Orchestra in an operatic rarity, Franz Schmidt’s “Notre Dame,” based on the novel by Victor Hugo.
Schmidt was a cosmopolitan musician, virtuoso pianist and cellist, who trained in Vienna and played in that city’s symphony for two decades. He also composed symphonies, concerti and operas, finishing “Notre Dame” in 1906.
With all tickets costing $25, it’s hard to go wrong.
At 57th Street and 7th Avenue. Information: +1-212-869- 9276; http://www.americansymphony.org.
Spend the evening with Gerhard Richter in his white-walled studio.
Directed and written by Corinna Belz, the documentary “Gerhard Richter Painting” took three years to make.
The great German artist applies color to canvas, ponders what he’s done from different angles, at times destroying it.
Runs through March 27 at Film Forum, 209 W. Houston St. Information: +1-212-727-8110; http://www.filmforum.org.
