Venue was easy to find, intimate, very comfortable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was convenient and reasonably priced. Dress to me, was business casual and the audience adhered respectfully to it. Great time. Highly recommended.

Description

We all know the story: Best friends from Cambridge write a screenplay, star in the hit movie, win the Academy Award, and suddenly the world can’t get enough of them. But what’s the real story behind Matt Damon’s and Ben Affleck’s breakout success? Can fame literally land in your lap? Written by Mindy Kaling (of NBC’s The Office) and Brenda Withers, the gender-bending Off-Broadway hit Matt & Ben comes home to Cambridge with a sharp skewering of celebrity culture and an affectionate look at Boston’s favorite bromance. Bring a friend. Some things are meant to be shared.
