Bridge Rep's immersive and intimate cabaret-style production of the musical Hello Again follows 10 nameless but recognizable types of characters through 10 sexually intimate scenes of intense pleasure and/or emotional pain throughout the 10 decades of the 20th century. Inspired by the controversial play La Ronde, which explored sexual morals in the late 19th century, Michael John LaChiusa's update was nominated for a number of Drama Desk Awards in its initial Off-Broadway run -- in fact, the total was lucky number 10. Bridge Repertory Theater of Boston is in the midst of its first successful season, and has already been recognized with several nominations from the Independent Reviewers of New England. Learn More

Mayhem, mix-ups and a gay (in the old sense of the word) wedding mark the high-spirited hijinx of this delightful show, which won five 2006 Tony Awards including Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
Featuring music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, and a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, The Drowsy Chaperone begins when a die-hard musical fan plays a favorite cast album on his turntable, and the show magically bursts to life in his living room. Instantly he is immersed in the hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day in a show that pays tribute to American musicals of the Jazz Age.
