4/19: Paul Rudd, Savion Glover, A-List Chefs…

…and an artist sets out to illustrate every page of “Moby Dick.” Obsessive, much?



    4/19: Paul Rudd, Savion Glover, A-List Chefs…
    Paul Rudd entertains at stuttering non-profit Our Time's benefit.

    MARQUEE: Paul Rudd, Lauren Ambrose, guest of honor Carly Simon and a host of other A- and B-listers congregate to do what they do best and, in the process, raise money for Our Time, the non-profit to help stutter sufferers transcend their disability through art. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts,7PM. 

    WHALE OF A TIME: People like to give themselves finite challenges—cooking their way through Julia Child’s oeuvre, these sorts of things—and artist Matt Kish is no exception: He’s set out to illustrate every page of Melville’s Moby Dick (the Signet classic edition he’s working from clocks in at 522 pages; he’s about halfway done). Kish offers a preview of his obsessive, grandiose work in a slideshow at Pete’s Candy Store at 7:30PM. 

    HAPPY FEAT: Tap dancing and tapas may not seem a logical fit at first, but tonight, the pairing is for a worthy cause: Groove With Me, which offers free after-school dance classes to low-income girls in East Harlem. Savion Glover heads up a host tap performances, while Hoda Kotb and other special guests taste nibbles from star chefs like George Mendes (Aldea), Damon Wise (Craft), and Scott Conant (Scarpetta).The6th Annual Spring Benefit: Tap & Tapas is atStudio 450, 6:30PM.
