Originally called The Met, Boston's premier performing arts venue started life as a glittering movie "cathedral", dripping in chandeliers and marble. It's splendour faded somewhat in the 1960s and 70s, but a ambitious restoration, funded in large part by the Wang family, brought it back to its former glories. It now plays host to dozens of broadway shows, operas and concerts every year.

Je'caryous Johnson's Things Your Man Won't Do

October 22, 2015

Leading African-American playwright and inspirational speaker Je'caryous Johnson is back with a brand-new touring play that is set to catch the stage on fire! Not so much a love triangle as a love square, this story tells the funny efforts that an emotionally unintelligent man must make in order to win back the love of his life. But when he enlists the help of his friend, he finds that there is another person in the race for this woman's affections.

Elf: The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. The heartwarming musical follows Buddy on a task of impossible size - can he reunite his new family in happiness, as well as bring much-needed Christmas spirit to the city of New York?
