While there are many great national touring shows coming to Boston, there is a vibrant local theater scene too often overlooked.  I’d like to encourage you to check out one of the performances listed below.  Since tickets to these performances are much less than those national touring companies you can even afford to go out for  drinks after the show.

One response to “Boston’s local theater scene

  1. Thank you for supporting local theatre! http://www.stagesource.org/about-us is an excellent online resource if you want to be a butt in a seat or on stage diva or behind the curtains wizzard. The National tours are not what they used to be – good productions but no real connection to the folk – Bette Davis always stopped in for one at Napoleon – but ended up (and often closed) Playland – I remember serving her and her people (like four – not the hanger on crowds of today) – they stayed at the Hotel Avery (not really posh – but clean). Pretentious queens would be “shocked” that she was there – but gurls – so were you. One guy to his credit (totally off the rocker) went up to her, told him how much he adored her and was attempting to be cute via the beach scene of WEHTBJ and asked her if she wanted an ice cream – without missing a beat she told / read him that if I want ice cream I’d be at an ice cream stand – we are both in a bar – I only want one thing at a time and that is another drink – you deary want two – the drink and a blowjob – I hope you get both – good luck with either.

    The best F U C K Y O U line I have ever heard. Since I was the bartender she of course got an immediate back-up vodka stinger
