How to Get Away With Murder cast talk
Nov. 12, 7 p.m.
Paley Center, 25 W. 52 St.
If possible, the title of ABC’s hit drama “How to Get Away With Murder” is less provocative than what the show has tackled.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular
Nov. 13-Jan. 3
Radio City Music Hall, 1260 Sixth Ave.
Radio City's Rockettes set the bar for holiday entertainment, with an annual show that’s constantly innovating while keeping the spirit of a Christmas tradition that has been part of the city since 1933.

This year's production will feature a 43-foot turntable for a top secret show-stopping number — hey, the hip-hop musical concept is working for "Hamilton," why not a rapping Santa Claus?
