Kiss' Paul Stanley produced New England's debut album, launching the band to stardom on the strength of its Top 40 single "Don't Ever Wanna Lose Ya." A staple of AOR radio in the late '70s and early '80s, the Boston natives shared arena stages with such giants of rock as Journey, AC/DC, Cheap Trick and Kiss. Famed producer Mike Stone (Queen) guided New England's Explorer Suite, featuring the orchestral title track, "It's Never Too Late" and "Conversation," which highlighted the band's trademark lush vocal harmonies. The legendary Todd Rundgren brought out the band's hard rock side with anthemic tunes like "Don't Ever Let Me Go," "L-5" and "Holdin' Out On Me." Now the quartet of melodic power rockers is reuniting for its first full-length show since 1983. Learn More

Having been a part of previous Post Meridian Radio Players shows, I may be biased, but I wasn't involved in this production, so I came to it as an audience member ready to be entertained. It delivered! I really liked the way the entire theater became a stage - the improvisation bled through into the scripted material seamlessly, to the point that I couldn't tell whether a technician plugging in some Christmas lighting during the show was planned or not. Be prepared to put on your thinking cap - at one point I think there was dialogue from a rehearsal within a rehearsal within a show within a show! Ultimately, the show is a sweet sendoff to the golden age of radio, with a nod to the past's future: people trying to keep the art form alive. Often hilarious, and by the end unexpectedly touching.
