Mommy Queerest opens April 9th at Club Cafe

The Theater OffensiveThe Theater Offensive is rolling out their latest production, Mommy Queerest, one week from today, starting April 9th at Club Cafe.

The raunchy one-woman show centers on Kat Evasco, who co-wrote the play with John Caldon and tells her story as a young lesbian and her closeted lesbian mother, reclaiming their sexuality in their own ways, and how their relationship is strained and strengthened by that exploration process.  From home to school to camp to church, Kat acts out a loopy Kama sutra of graphic scenes. But each affair brings her back to her Mom, who can transform any frank talk into a lesbian soap opera of absurd denials and shocking revelations.

Mommy Queerest runs April 9th – 17th (Thursday – Sunday)

Tickets can be purchased for $10 but suggested price is $20.  Tickets purchased for $25 get a FREE drink ticket.  For more details or to purchase tickets, link here

Big Fish from the SpeakEasy Stage opens

SpeakEasy Company, Boston, TheaterLast week The SpeakEasy Stage Company opened with their latest musical, Big Fish.  The title may sound familiar because Tim Burton made a film based on the story that starred Ewan McGregor in 2003.  The SpeakEasy Stage Company musical focuses on the relationship between a father (Edward Bloom) and his son (Will Bloom) which has become strained in recent years.  Both look to make peace with each other after the father’s health declines but will they reconcile in time?

Big Fish March 13 – April 11 – Get Your Tickets Here

The 2.5 hour musical has two acts with an intermission.  While the second act is much more emotional, it was my favorite part of the show and more than a little touching.  The final scenes had both Sergio and I silently groping for the tissues I had in my coat pocket.

Big Fish runs through April 11th at the Calderwood Theater in the South End.  For more information or to purchase tickets click on the link above.
