Torch Song by Harvey Fierstein comes to Boston

Next week Torch Song opens at the BCA Calderwood Pavilion. Described as hilarious and heart wrenching, Torch Song follows Arnold Beckoff on his odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Join Arnold on this all-too-human journey about the families we’re born into, the families we choose, and the battles to bring them all home. For more information about the show at the BCA Calderwood Pavilion and to purchase tickets visit the Boston Theatre Scene website or click on the button below.

The Play That Goes Wrong

This weekend The Lyric Stage Company will open with a funny new play called The Play That Goes Wrong. Centered around a misguided troupe of wannabe actors performance of “The Mruder at Haversham Manor” nothing goes according to plan, ranging from technical gaffes, forgotten lines, and sabotaging scenery the troupe comicaly strives to maintain their poise until the final curtain call. Described as part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, all mayhem—this 1920s whodunit is disastrously delightful.

The play runs through the middle of December, and tickets are on sale now. Click the link below for more information about the play and / or to purchase your tickets. Individual tickets start at $40.00.

The Play That Goes Wrong
November 11 – December 18

SpeakEasy Stage presents ENGLISH

This Friday, The SpeakEasy Stage of Boston opens with their second production of the 2022/23 season, ENGLISH. The play has received numerous accolades and is described by the New York Theater guide as, “a stunning play about hope, belonging, and desire.”

Set in an English language class in a suburb of Tehran, the student’s teacher, Marjan, insists they speak “English Only!” as she struggles to prepare them for their Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The implications and opportunities for the students can be life changing if they pass this exam but of course it isn’t all that simple or straightforward with one student set on derailing the lesson plan.

ENGLISH
October 21 – November 19, 2023
More Info Here

As someone who has struggled to learn a second language off and on over the years, I can relate to the challenge as well as the humor that comes from mispronounciations, mistakes, and misunderstandings, and I look forward to seeing this show which runs from October 21 – November 19, 2022.

Make plans with friends to see this production or make it a date night, but be sure to get your tickets.

Little Christmas Tree Shop of Horrors

Ryan Landry and The Gold Dust Orphans return this winter with their holiday spectacular, Little Christmas Tree Shop of Horrors.

Little Christmas Tree Shop of Horrors
Holiday Run: December 1 – 23
At The Iron Wolf Theatre in S. Boston
Get Your Tickets Here!

For those uninitiated, Landry and his creative troupe of theatrical misfits have been entertaining audiences in Boston and Provincetown for more than two decades. The holiday shows in recent years have been absolutely irreverant and hilarious poking fun at gay cliches, social mores / customs, and of course conservative politics.

About Little Christmas Tree Shop of Horrors
Who is killing the somewhat innocent, questionably respectable people of Revere, Massachusetts? And at Christmas, for Christs sake! Nervous Dollar Store manager, Norbert Feinstein knows, but he’s too busy pining for his co-worker, Tawdry and running from his boss, everyone’s favorite holiday villain, Hermione P. Grinchley! Things look pretty bleak for our heroes until they come across the strangest little Christmas tree… a Christmas tree that KILLS!

Boston’s theater: Fall productions

As the summer comes to a close, I like to promote Boston Theater comanies and their fall productions. This fall, Boston area theater companies have a crop of interesting and engaging productions – something for everyone. For those who may not be familiar with the local theater scene, check it out and for those of you who haven’t seen a live performance in a few years, make plans to catch a show.

Tickets to shows from local theater companies are far more affordable than the national tours that come through Boston, and they make for an excellent date night or evening out with friends.

The Huntington || Sing Street
August 26 – October 2, 2022

It’s Dublin, 1982. Sixteen-year old Conor tries to impress a mysterious girl, Raphina, by asking her to star in a music video for his band. If only he had a band. Teaming up with a group of schoolmates, Conor and Raphina use music to bring them together, escape their troubles at home, and carve out a place in their struggling community. With a score that embraces the new wave sounds of the 80s, Sing Street is an ode to the thrill of young love and a celebration of the power of music to lift us up.

American Repertory Theater || Twighlight Los Angeles, 1992
August 28 – September 24, 2022

A searing examination of racial injustice, police brutality, and social tumult, “Twilight” was drawn from 320 interviews Smith conducted after the 1992 Los Angeles riots ignited by the acquittal of white police officers who were caught on videotape brutally beating a Black motorist named Rodney King.

SpeakEasy Stage Co. || Heroes of the Fourth Turning
September 9 – October 8, 2022

One week after the Charlottesville riots in 2017, four young conservatives gather in a Wyoming backyard to gossip and reminisce. They’ve assembled to honor Gina, their mentor and the newly inaugurated president of a far-right Catholic university. But as their celebration runs deep into the night, the reunion explodes into vicious insults, political accusations, and stunning revelations.

Lyric Stage Co. || Fabulation or, The Re-Education of Undine
September 16 – October 9, 2022

Undine has it all until her husband steals her hard-earned fortune, sending her tumbling down the social ladder. Pregnant and penniless, with life unraveling at every turn, she is forced to return home to Brooklyn and the family she left behind, in a complicated new reality. While her life unravels, Undine learns that hope can be found in small victories and in the discovery of finding happiness within.

North Shore Music Theater || Little Shop of Horrors
September 20 – October 2, 2022

Meek flower shop assistant Seymour pines for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood. The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Seymour feeds Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin, to the plant after Orin’s accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.

Central Square Theater || Ada the Engine
September 22 – October 23, 2022

It’s 1830 and Britain’s Industrial Revolution has dawned. The fiery, brilliant Ada Byron Lovelace, is the author of the first computer program and daughter of Lord Byron, and at 17 she befriends Charles Babbage, salon host and inventor of the first mechanical computer. What follows is a tempestuous collaboration wherein they envision a future where a “thinking engine” completes complex calculations.

Romeo & Juliet on Boston Common Aug 11&13

Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? The Boston Lyric Opera is hosting two free performances of Romeo & Juliet at 8PM on Thursday, August 11 and Saturday, August 13.

Romeo & Juliet on the Boston Common

These FREE performances offer those who have never been to an opera, a unique opportunity to experience it under the stars. You can check out the full cast here. For those motivated by more base instincts, be sure to check out the very handsome baritone, Nicholas LaGeese who plays Mercutio – damn he’s cute.

Similar to the Shakespeare on the Common productions, you can rent chairs but it is best to make a reservation (chair reservation info). If you’re planning to attend, show up early because these free performances attract huge crowds.

I also recommend making pitstop at Roche Bros in DTX before you find a place on the Common to see this production. Roche Bros has a lot of grab-n-go items so you can have an impromptu picnic during the performance. While consuming alcohol on the Common is illegal, if you’re discreet, you’ll be fine. I’m a big fan of bringing some cheeses and one or two bottles of very cold white or rosé.

August / September 2022 performances in Provincetown

The variety and caliber of entertainers coming to Provincetown this summer is astonishing, and after the past two years, they could really use your love and support.

Shows are listed chronologically, starting with shows running all season.

This list will continue to be updated. You can also check out the main venues in Ptown at Art House, Crown & Anchor, Pilgrim House, and Post Office Cafe & Cabaret.

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company presents Much Ado About Nothing

Photo from CSC website

Shakespeare on Boston Common July 20 – Aug 7

One of my favorite summer traditions in Boston is attending one of the free performances by the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company on the Boston Common. Last year I had a great time with friends watching the CSC produtionc of The Tempest and this year’s comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, is one of my favorites from The Bard – much thanks to the 1990s movie starring Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson.

While the performances remain free, due to the popularity of these performances, advanced registration is strongly recommended for ease of arrival and priority access to seating. All shows start at 8PM with the exception of the matinee on July 30th which starts at 4PM. For more information, visit the Commonwealth Shakespeare Co. website.

About Much Ado About Nothing

The plot revolves around two couples — witty Beatrice and Benedick, who publicly proclaim their disdain for each other but fall madly in love; and naïve Hero and Claudio, who fall quickly in love only to be thwarted and then reunited (in both cases, with a bit of help from their friends). But it’s more than just a comedic romp. The play tackles serious themes too: trust and betrayal, power and privilege, gendered expectations around chastity and violence.

Opening Night: Cinderella starring Jujubee is at the North Shore Music Theatre thru July 24th

It is opening night at The North Shore Music Theatre for their new production of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s classic, CINDERELLA. The Tony Award®-winning musical will delight you with its surprisingly contemporary take on the classic tale, and RuPaul Drag Race fans will love seeing Mass-native, Jujubee, star in the role of Madame – the wicked stepmother.

The production features a live orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more—plus some surprising new twists.

CINDERELLA opens tonight and will run through July 24th at the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly, MA. The musical runs for just under 2.5 hours and includes one intermission.

SpeakEasy Stage presents: The Inheritance

The Inheritance
Apr 22 – Jun 11, 2022

Earlier this weekend The SpeakEasy Stage production of The Inheritance opened at the Calderwood Pavilion in the South End. The 6+ hour play, which won the 2020 Tony Award for Best Play, is told in two 3+ hour seatings.

Based on E.M. Forster’s novel Howard’s End, which delved into social codes of conduct and relationships in Edwardian England, The Inheritance takes place nearly a hundred years later (a generation after the peak of the AIDS crisis) in New York. The play explores what it is like to be young gay man, the legacy left by previous generations, and the legacy of AIDS impact on gay men.

“The Inheritance is not as embracing of all humanity, living and dead: Its characters are too shallow, too narcissistic, too selfish, too grounded in time and space. Nonetheless, it will not easily be forgotten, either. The play is a remarkable slice of life in a time of war and a beautiful remembrance, “a haunting, a necessary haunting” of both the victims and the survivors of that war.” -Broadway Review by Marilyn Stasio in Variety

Content Advisory: play contains sexual content, nudity, violence and graphic language.

Boston’s Lyric Stage secures longterm lease

Boston Lyric Stage was founded nearly 50 years ago, and thanks to a new long-term lease they will be able to remain in the Back Bay for many more years. While the details, including the duration of the lease weren’t shared, the release says this lease will ensure that the Lyric Stage will remain a vital and essential part of the cultural fabric of Boston for decades to come.

The building that houses the theater was purchased for $51.25 million by the Mount Vernon Company and Beacon Communities and while it was expected that the theater company would remain, it is now guaranteed with this long-term lease. In addition to securing their home, the building will undergo some significant changes. The floors above the second story theater will be remodeled to create 200+ affordable rental homes – half reserved for people exiting homelessness, with the assistance of the Pine Street Inn.
