Cover Story

We Are Family

Some are odd couples, while some could, and do, pass for the same person. Some share the stage happily, while some jostle and roughhouse like, well, siblings. Some are -- virtually -- joined at the hip, while others pursue their brilliant careers in totally different professions. While many come here to escape our families, the city's brother-and-sister acts (from Donald and Maryanne Trump to Paris and Nicky Hilton) show that family values -- of our own specific kinds -- are not only surviving but thriving in the city.


The Berlin Waltz

With the premiere of her haunting but funny -- and more than a little risqué -- masterpiece this week at bam, Americans will finally get to see why Berlin's Sasha Waltz has become Europe's hottest modern-dance export since Pina Bausch.

No Ordinary Joe

When Al Gore added Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman as his vice-presidential nominee, it seemed a risky move -- an Orthodox Jew on a national ticket! -- to just about everyone. Except Joe Lieberman. In fact, Lieberman has his eyes set on the top of the ticket, and he's taken his message to 31 states since January 2001. His name recognition and centrist policies might make him a formidable candidate in a general election. If only he can psych out Al Gore.

Backs on Track
