The entrance to the theatre is around the back. Facing the building, go right. You will not be able to access it if you go left..

Excellent acting. Quite an eclectic show - it was really a fun night out. Definitely worth watching despite the theater being warm. Interesting venue with quite an interesting story. Located in the back of a building that used to be an old ...continued

Cute story. Very funny. Great acting. Venue was hot and uncomfortable. They need a couple fans going in the Summer. Other than that, well worth buying a ticket =)

Quotes & Highlights

“…a funny and poignant play…. In the end theater isn’t much more than this, and it shouldn’t be any less.”—New York Post



by Joshua Conkel

Director: Barbara DiGirolamo  

Emory is an effeminate 11-year-old boy who lives on a farm with his chain-smoking Nanna and his only friend, a depressed chicken about to be processed. Nanna wishes Emory would get his head out of the clouds, stop choreographing ribbon stick dance numbers, and be more like Elliot, the boy down the road with a penchant for burning things. But Emory and Elliot have a relationship — just not one Nanna would expect or approve of.

With absurd, poignant dialog and brutal characterizations, MilkMilkLemonade is a bitterly funny exploration of gender, sexuality, life, death, and the human body. The show has been hailed by various critics all over the country and was voted Best Off Off Broadway Show of 2009 by New York Press.

Leading the cast as the 11-year-old Emory is Boston’s very own Bad Boy of Theatre, Joey C. Pelletier (Blowing Whistles, Zeitgeist Stage Company). Mr. Pelletier has been a staple of the Boston theatre scene, having performed with 11:11 Theatre, Alarm Clock Theatre, Holland Productions, Tinderbox Stage, Boston Actors Theater and imaginary beasts. 

Alongside Mr. Pelletier are four of Boston’s most fearless actors. Melanie Garber (__Bear Patrol, Vaquero Playground) gender-bends herself to embody the role of the bully, Elliot, while Erin Rae Zalaski (Into the Fens__, Heart & Dagger Productions) transforms herself into Linda, a big ‘ol chicken searching to be the next great comedienne.

As well as choreographing the show, the versatile Elise Weiner Wulff (__Where Moments Hung Before, Boston Actors Theater) brings a variety of characters to life onstage under one moniker, the Lady in the Leotard. Ms. Wulff will serve as Narrator, a parasitic twin, a venomous spider, to name a few. Rounding out the five person ensemble is Mikey DiLoreto (Music From a Sparkling Planet, __Happy Medium Theatre) as the brittle and cruel Nanna.
