The next few weeks are going to be rough so "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night." Here are some tips to help [...]

This week is like nothing I've ever in my lifetime experienced. Along with everyone, I have been juggling, re-arranging, shifting everything I am involved in to the virtual world while the arts and cultural world from Broadway to Boston and beyond shuts down.

MUST SEE THEATER : “THE CHILDREN”

By |2020-03-08T21:19:17-04:00March 8th, 2020|Theater|0 Comments

No kidding-- THE CHILDREN is among the best plays and productions I've ever seen in Boston.  In the shadow of a looming pandemic, Lucy Kirkwood's acutely timely Tony-nominated play is now onstage in a masterful production at SpeakEasy Stage. It is a divinely-acted, eerily relevant work that first gets under your skin, then leaves you [...]

In this year of the centennial of women's suffrage (Is it possible we've only had the vote since 1920??) it's perfect that the woman most associated with second-wave feminism beyond enfranchisement-- "Women's Lib" as I first called it in the '70's--is still on the front lines, driving home the conversation she began 50 years ago. [...]

Theater is non-stop in this town and two world premieres are now onstage in Boston!
