HUZZAH! Tavern Night at the Boston Tea Party

When I first arrived in Boston back in 1998 I spent a lot of time being a tourist and enjoying the wonderful things that this historic city has to offer.  As I have now been here an very long time, the tourist in me is gone but given the chance, I will always try something a little different. One of our teams at work was putting together a night out and to all our surprise the HUZZAH! Tavern Night at the Boston Tea Party Museum was recommended and agreed upon.  I am not entirely sure how that happened, especially for me being British...

Hello Again… A Play by Michael John LaChiusa and Directed by Michael Bello

I do like to celebrate and rejoice in my local theaters so when I get the chance I will always indulge in taking in a play, especially at the Bridge Repertory Theater. One of the most memorable plays I have seen in the last year was The Lover by Harold Pinter, which left me brewed up with a number of emotions from making me feel uncomfortable, to being amused, to being saddened but ultimately thinking about how difficult relationships can be.  Ultimately, a truly enjoyable play. This past Saturday after a fun dinner at the new Merrill & Co., I went...

The Lover, by Harold Pinter – Bridge Repertory Theater, South End

This past weekend I was lucky enough to have received an invite to a showing of The Lover at the Bridge Repertory Theater of Boston.  A play written by well-known English playwright Harold Pinter back in 1962.  Harold Pinter was best known for his plays the Birthday Party and Homecoming. Prior to going to the show, I did Google what the play was about and I am glad I did as I was a little confused (even after googling it.)  I wasn’t confused by the play subject matter, that was very clear, but more of whether this was really...

Green Eyes by Tennessee Williams

I was torn between needing my own head and thoughts and needing to talk out loud about what I had just watched – live, raw and up close, really close. My curiosity got the better of me when I read the description of this particular play called Green Eyes by Tennessee Williams. Green Eyes was written in 1971 and remained unpublished until it was brought to life with a Company One production. This past Saturday, myself and 24 other people, three of them being my close friends, Stacey, Rob and Sergio, were escorted to a hotel room in the Ames Hotel in order to voyeuristically watch this...

RED, by John Logan – “Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability”

My good friend, BosGuy invited me to a night at the theater.  Not one to turn down something for free, I happily accepted having absolutely no clue what we were going to see.  Once he told me it was a play called Red at the SpeakEasy Stage, I looked it up and thought I was not happy any more as it looked heavy and I probably wouldn’t enjoy it.  I could not have been more wrong.  Red depicts the story of abstract expressionist artist, Mark Rothko.  A fictional story in Rothko’s life that is a dark and sometimes funny two man play currently showing at the Calderwood Theater (SpeakEasy Stage). I knew nothing of Rothko so I had no idea what we were in for.  After watching the play, I immediately needed to know more.  This play truly is a force to be reckoned with and absolutely deserving of the six Tony’s it won. Rothko was one of the most well-know artists from the 1950s.  The actor portrayed him as an angry, self-indulgent ego maniac, who cared for no-one else except himself.  The world was not good enough to put their eyes on his work, which to him had to move and speak to the viewer evoking some sort of emotion.     The play takes place in 1958 with Rothko receiving a handsome commission to create four large paintings for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York, which leaves him tortured with...
