TWC take over: Men of the Strip

The Welcoming Committee, TWC, male strippersThe Welcoming Committee is encouraging you to embrace the Arts community in all its forms.   They are planning a take over of Men of the Strip, a sexy dance show that will be coming to Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015.

While these shows tend to be overrun by middle aged suburban housewives and bachelorette parties, TWC has decided to give these dancers (and their fans) something to think about with their boldest takeover to date.

Join the takeover at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, Jan 3 at 7 p.m.


TWC takeover of Boston Ballet Nutcracker

The Welcoming Committee Boston BalletHave you seen Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker?  Do you love a bargain? Then you are going to love the fact that  The Welcoming Committee (TWC) has secured tickets to the Nutcracker on Tuesday, December 9th.  They have 100 seats (first and second row – front balcony) that normally sell for ~$150 each.  TWC is selling them as part of their “Takeover the Nutcracker” for $68 each.

Tickets only last while seats remain available so quickly chat with friends or surprise your significant other with tickets to the show.  I’ve seen the performance, and I can assure you that if you are not yet in the holiday spirit this show will help get you there. The sets and choreography are aaaaaaahhhmazing.

After the show join TWC for drinks at the Avery Bar at the Ritz Carlton.  Shame on you if you’ve not already been and you let this opportunity pass you by.
