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

A Boston Premiere by Kristoffer Diaz
Directed by Shawn LaCount Having just won the Obie for Best New American Play, this Pulitzer finalist is as hilarious as it is relevant. Mace is a professional wrestler. He’s a really good professional wrestler. He’s not the champion though — that’s the impossibly charismatic Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of the champ, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo! A serious minded comedy about wrestling, geopolitics, and raisin bread.
