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

In José Rivera’s Obie Award-winning play, Marisol finds herself in an urban wasteland where coffee, apples and the color blue are extinct and the moon has gone missing. While her guardian angel leads an army against God, Marisol struggles to survive in the chaos that surrounds her. A fantastical vision of the future staged in a labyrinth within the Wimberly Theatre. Director and BU alumna Tara L. Matkosky reverses the playing space and seats patrons on stage in what promises to be a unique theatrical experience.
