"The history of passports, smuggling Kentucky Fried Chicken into other countries, and the peculiarities of airline security — it's all covered in this miraculous, one-man saga that unpacks how the mundane details that govern global travel become the actual journey.
17 Border Crossings is a surreal sojourn that transports us to very real places: Hungary, Serbia, Morocco, Colombia, Holland and Mexico, to name a few. In the deft, mischievous manner of the trickster, Phillips manages to float huge questions that surround the fraught migrations of our era.
With all the childlike curiosity and adult skepticism of monologist Spalding Gray, and the theatrical wizardry of a Robert Lepage, Thaddeus Phillips takes audiences by the hand on a trip around the world and shows us that when we cross the imaginary lines that divide up the world, the real borders come to light."
"In a living room strewn with vinyl records, beer bottles and drug paraphernalia, a mustached man begins railing about his missing copy of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks album, and it seems he won't back down until the universe bestows upon him some elusive state of grace. Part Gonzo rock performance, part mental breakdown — all thrillingly theatrical— How To Be A Rock Critic pulls the greatest hits from Bangs' own legendary words to imagine a single night of his turbulent life.
Inside his wild, all-night typewriter sessions, Lester Bangs embraced mistakes as strokes of genius, popularized now ubiquitous terms like "Heavy Metal" and "Punk Rock," and died of an overdose at the Biblical age of 33. Join us for an evening with music's great, lost critical voice."
"'Mala' means 'bad.' Not that you have done something bad, but that you are, in your core, bad."
Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good, but don't always succeed. A world premiere production by ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show by Melinda Lopez transports us into a world which is uniquely Cuban-American in its specifics, and universal in its power.
An utterly unsentimental journey to the end of life and straight out the other side, Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive right now.
Grounded in Lopez's distinctive emotional language and sharp humor, Mala dances between doctors, work, a mother's growing frailty, a daughter's quest for grace, an epic Boston winter, Arctic icebergs and 911 calls. Built from notes frantically tapped out on an iPhone, Mala forces us to confront the inevitable finality of our
No director. No set. No rehearsals.
A metaphorical work by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed in many cities, but is always unique, thanks to Soleimanpour's rules: Each night of the performance, the audience arrives to a stage set with only a script in a sealed envelope. Every night, a different actor takes the stage, opens the envelope, and reads the script aloud for the first—and last—time.
Join us in discovering the play no one is allowed to talk about.
