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

A 2010 Tony nominee for Best Play, _Next Fall _takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment, and unconditional love. Luke, a devout Christian, and Adam, a non-believer, have been together for four years; yet spiritual differences continue to spark trouble in their relationship. A sudden twist of fate, however, changes everything for these men in this compelling new play that looks at what it means to believe and what it might cost us not to.
