The picture-perfect facade of '50s-era family life is torn away in Far From Heaven, the stage adaptation of the Oscar-nominated romantic melodrama from director Todd Haynes (I'm Not There, Mildred Pierce). While managing a household that would show-up the Cleavers in its neatness and apparent civility, a Connecticut housewife discovers her husband's secret ... only to seek comfort in a forbidden relationship of her own. Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out) and the creators of the musical Grey Gardens collaborated on this romantic musical that evokes Haynes' original inspiration: the lush, Technicolor brilliance of the films of Douglas Sirk. Now, for its Boston premiere, Scott Edmiston directs a smart and sophisticated production at the SpeakEasy Stage. Learn More

It really was an extraordinary evening of theater ! And to think it was performed by students ! All the more fantastic ! It was a fast-paced, thoughtful, insightful and 'measured' re-enactment of the events up to and including the assassinations and trial.
The acting, requiring a number of actors to assume different roles, was really 'top-notch' and fully evoked each character's nuances and personalities.
And, on a virtual 'shoestring', the production was imaginative and exciting.
Truly a night at the theater NOT to be missed !

A brilliant portrayal of the Dan White trial after the 1978 assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay city supervisor Harvey Milk of San Francisco. Renowned playwright Mann tells the story in a provocative and multilayered way, posing as many questions as answers about a tragic chapter in the city’s transition to its current political and social climate.
