OUR TOP PICKS

FOR JUNE EVENTS

Watch What Happens Live
Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen might at first seem like opposites, but anyone who’s seen the CNN anchor in a giggle fit knows he has a silly side, and Cohen asks the tough questions of his network’s “Real Housewives.” Anderson, who provided emotional coverage of Hurricane Katrina for his show “Anderson Cooper 360,” and Cohen, Bravo executive producer and host of the nightly booze-soaked talk show “Watch What Happens Live,” are longtime friends, and they’ll host an “intimate evening” at the Sanger on June 24. The event, in which the two will interview each other and take questions from the audience, promises to be an “interactive look behind the scenes of pop culture and world events.” Information, SaengerNOLA.com


Essential Viewing
His performance at this year’s Grammy’s made everyone else’s look like a dress rehearsal in comparison. Kendrick Lamar stole the show and that year in music with his politically charged magnum opus To Pimp a Butterfly. He headlines Essence Fest (June 20-July 3) along with Mariah Carey and Maxwell in the Superdome. Information, Essence.com/festival


Music and Lyrics
With new artistic director Michael McKelvey at the helm, the 2016 season of Tulane Summer Lyric fittingly has a theme of adventure and exploration. This year’s season includes the biblical Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (June 16-19), the funny flapper musical Thoroughly Modern Millie (July 7-10) and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn-based Big River (July 28-31). Information, SummerLyric.tulane.edu
