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

This was one of the most enjoyable evenings at the theatre that I have had in a while. Good energy, good acting. Everything was done with great imagination, and I loved the intimate experience of the studio theatre. I would highly recommend this production--I am thinking of going again this weekend!

Called one of Shakespeare’s best works, Much Ado About Nothing casts the serious themes of love, fear of commitment, and jealousy in a sexy, side-splitting comedy about two very different courtships. In this faithful adaptation by director, Daniel Morris, all characters are portrayed by 5 actors, creating a tour de force of quick changes, gender-bending and unexpected surprises.
