Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Wed, Aug 29, 2012

hovey players the porch things to do in bostonBeginning September 7th, The Porch, an amazing theatrical drama will take action! The Porch is about three ladies of a certain age discussing things that ladies of a certain age discussed in 2004–like the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. And ALL its ramifications. The ladies are funny, insightful, incisive and they abandoned their censorship synapses long ago. As the Labor Day weekend continues, we get to know them, and their long-suffering husbands as a mystery unfolds involving one of the ladies and a time in her past that touched her and all her friends. The drama in The Porch sneaks up on you as you laugh and laugh. When life attacks suddenly, it’s friendship alone that provides the bridge to tomorrow.

A true Boston Theater Hub in South End

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Thu, Aug 23, 2012

So the Calderwood Pavilion is pretty much amazing. It is a 35‚000 square feet complex with a three–story interior space‚ which includes two theatres‚ rehearsal rooms‚ and backstage facilities. pavilion exterior 186

What's so special about it? Well if the fact that is pretty much serves as a theater hub and a cultural landmark for the City of Boston doesn't impress than let me ramble on some more. It also provides a home for artistic collaborations; fosters the development of new plays; helps build and diversify audiences; creates more opportunities for youth and community outreach; and expands the existing BCA complex to include more performance venues for Boston's smaller arts organizations.

It's always a great fun time in Boston at the Calderwood pavilion in South End so check out the schedule and make a date and enjoy the Boston theater scene. 

And what's even cooler is that I grew up on a street called Calderwood - not that you care about that of course!

Throw your 3D glasses away and see a movie at The Brattle Theatre

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Fri, Jun 22, 2012

Popcorn isn't the only thing poppin' at this distinguished Boston area Landmark in Cambridge. 

Since 1953 The Brattle Theatre has shown the best in classic, cutting-edge, foreign, and art-house films. They also show first-run films and new releases of classic films, but their specialty is a repertory programming format consisting of films from a particular director, genre, or subject shown over the course of a week.365 things to do in Boston Brattle Theatre

After a remodel prior to 9/11 things slowed down, but since the non-profit Brattle Film Foundation has operated the Brattle Theatre beginning in 2001, the Brattle House has consistently had quite the crowd.

Check out the Brattle House schedule and buy your tickets today. Be forewarned though - it is tucked away in a barn-shaped brick building in Harvard Square, its entrance buried down a flight of stairs off Brattle Street - and what ever you do, leave your 3-D glasses behind because this theater will thrill you with more than just things flying at your face! (I don't know why we torture ourself with those glasses anyways?)

Another classic Boston experience.

If you are feeling blue, these blue men are sure to lighten up your day. The Blue Man Group Show is a must see, and if it isn't on your Boston bucket list, add it quick!

So now your probably wondering why i'm trying to talk you into going to see three men who are painted blue. Just trust me, i've seen the show and it is incredible. The Blue Man Group stars a trio of performers called Blue Men, who all wear blue makeup and bald caps. They are so entertaining that they were even showcased on The Tonight Show.  It's simply an outrageous audio visual spectacle, not to be missed.
