Last month I wrote about the TWC take over of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Friday, February 20th. If you haven’t any plans for Friday, join Sergio and me as we head to Harvard Square to watch this talented male troupe perform, ¡Oops!…Madrid It Again!.
This is the same production that Amy Poehler (Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2015 Woman of the year) and Chris Pratt (Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2015 Man of the year) watched after receiving their awards.
This event will definitely sell out so don’t dawdle and checkout TWC’s website for details about the logistics and purchase your tickets here.
Fri, Feb 6th is The BridgeRep’s NIGHT OUT
The Bridge Repertory Theater of Boston is hosting a very special LGBT NIGHT OUT performance of Fufu & Oreos, a dynamic, one-woman show about a 20-something ‘mulitculti’ as she navigates her American lifestyle, Nigerian heritage and the loaded promise of Prozac. The performance runs for 90 minutes and is followed by a post-show migration to join up with The Welcoming Committee.
Tickets are available on a Pay What You Can basis with just $5 minimum at the door so there really isn’t any excuse to miss this show. Details about the show and tickets are available here.
The Welcoming Committee is returning to Harvard Square to take over one of America’s oldest theatrical traditions. Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals is celebrating their 167th anniversary this year and just weeks after hosting Amy Poehler and Chris Pratt, Sergio and I will be joining TWC to see the Hasty Pudding Theatricals show, ¡Oops!…Madrid It Again!, on Friday, February 20th.
This event will sell out. If interested visit TWC’s website here.
Boston’s SpeakEasy Stage Company’s first production of the calendar year opens tomorrow on Friday, January 9th for a brief run at the Calderwood Pavilion. The world premiere of A Future Perfect is about two couples, Claire & Max and Alex & Elena, who are best friends. That friendship is tested when one couple announces they are expecting a baby and careers start to trump youthful ideals.

One of Boston’s more notorious holiday traditions is the R-rated burlesque show, The Slutcracker. The satirical version of the classic ballet has a naughty edge and draws a far more rowdy crowd than those attending Boston Ballet’s production at the Opera House. Sergio and I attended this show a couple years ago and had a good laugh. I would strongly recommend making a night of it by planning dinner or drinks, but arrive with plenty of time if you go with a large group on a weekend since it is general seating.
The Slutcracker is for adults only (18+) and opens on Friday, December 5th. Performances run through New Year’s Eve, but check their calendar in the link below since they don’t have performances every night. All performances are at the Somerville Theater in Davis Square. You may purchase tickets here.
