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 perfect play - a deft, sensitive, and unusual treatment of an important issue, a top notch cast, a great set, music and lighting. What more could one want. Ideas and issues to chew on, mull, and discuss for a long time to come. Don't miss it.
Quotes & Highlights
- "O’Gara elicits some of the finest ensemble acting seen on any Boston stage this year ...<em> Tribes</em> is largely devoid of manipulative button-pushing. What you get instead are honest human moments, as Raine explores that complicated familial intersection where complacency, loyalty, thoughtlessness, good intentions, and misunderstandings collide." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/theater-art/2013/09/18/absorbing-tribes-speaks-volumes-about-failures-communicate/mep9y0lpzYwNTv5DkidraM/story.html"><em>Boston Globe</em></a>
- "The excellent ensemble is having a good time with these neurotics and the family kind of grows on you. The cast is obviously listening to each other even while they’re playing characters who don’t." --<a target="_blank" href="http://artery.wbur.org/2013/09/18/tribes-speakeasy">WBUR</a>
