Come celebrate the tumultuous joys of live theater with A Man of No Importance, a musical from the same team behind the Tony-winning smash Ragtime. Set in 1960s Dublin, the musical follows an amateur theater group and their leader, a bus driver who's determined to stage Oscar Wilde's Salome at his church -- despite objections from church authorities. At the core of this funny musical is an emotional storyline about family, friendship and the redemptive power of live theater. Now presented at Boston's Calderwood Pavilion, this compelling story by playwright Terrence McNally brims with passion and humor, and features a gorgeous score of Irish-inspired music.
Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Cambridge. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Shakespeare knowledge and head down to OBERON, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before.
