Cap off 2013 with a shot of laughter at this stand-up show featuring some of Boston's best comics, hosted by comedian Jim McCue. Known for his razor-sharp wit and ability to work the crowd, McCue headlines shows around New England and beyond, and regularly entertains the troops overseas. He's also the founder of the Boston Comedy Festival, and he's invited some of the hottest acts from this year's edition to come and entertain. Both shows end well before midnight, and are designed as a light, funny appetizer to your New Year's Eve celebration, before the serious partying gets started later in the evening. Learn More
Written by Jon Lipsky
Directed by Allyn Burrows
This stunning retelling of the Iliad by local playwright Jon Lipsky suggests that the years spent by Greek soldiers on the beachheads of Asia Minor have haunting similarities to the years spent by American soldiers on the beachheads of Vietnam, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and in the desert of Iraq. The lives of the women of Saigon or Baghdad may not be so different from the lives of the "barbarian" women kidnapped onto the plains of Troy. Living in Exile is a compelling war story, but more importantly a story of compassion and the human heart.
