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

Wrestling Patient was just that,a bit of a wrestle to get through it. Clearly it was dense material, and the actors did well with it; especially the doctor. Our concern (3 of us)was that the second half was too long, and did not have a flow.
It will be a great play when they rework it and tighten it up a bit.
The story was wonderful, but without the program preparing me for the play, I am not so sure I would have been able to follow it as well as i did.
