Is there life before death? That's the big question posed by the surprisingly funny and whimsical new show from the troupe behind ArtsEmerson's 2013 word-of-mouth phenomenon, Kiss & Cry. Utilizing that same theatrical magic — cinematic techniques, miniature sets, dancing hands and a poetic voice-over — Cold Blood cycles through a series of different lives (and deaths) in a hypnotic dreamlike state. You'll laugh, you'll cry — you'll never look at your hands the same way again. Join us for a celebration of life, the senses, love and the final moments of light.
Under the direction of Belgian choreographer and dancer Michèle Anne De Mey and the award-winning filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael, master artists use live film projection on stage to bring miniature worlds into full view of the audience.
He is a dark, enigmatic prince obsessed with seeking revenge for his father's death. She is a steadfast rebel who challenged the powers of the Church to restore France to greatness. Iconic figures from two great dramatic classics — Hamlet and Saint Joan — are brought vividly to life in two riveting, unexpectedly funny, stripped-down stagings by four actors from Bedlam, the acclaimed New York City theater company, directed by Eric Tucker. Behold William Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw's most famous creations side by side, in repertory, in Hamlet / Saint Joan.
Step Afrika! triumphantly returns to Boston with The Migration, a multimedia powerhouse production that chronicles and celebrates the paths of the brave men and women who left the American South searching for better opportunities. Inspired by painter Jacob Lawrence's groundbreaking series about "The Great Migration," the company transforms the work into a textured, interdisciplinary movement piece incorporating South African gumboot, Western African dance, vocals, drumming, and audience participation.
Bill Murray, actor Jan Vogler, cello Mira Wang, violin Vanessa Perez, piano
Bill Murray and Jan Vogler met during their travels and became friends in New York. Curious about each other's artistic worlds and interests, the actor and the cellist soon had the idea to work together on a project. The program would showcase the core of American values in literature and music and communicate the bridges artists have built between America and Europe. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin, and Foster are some of the strongest voices that influenced generations of humans in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy, and creative force of the New World.
In 2017, the joint program celebrated its premiere. The Hollywood star's love for classical music is young and his art of language boundless, giving all the more reason to look forward to a fascinating encounter between great music and great literature featuring two masters of their art.
Brit Floyd performs songs from Pink Floyd's best-loved and biggest-selling albums, including The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and The Division Bell.
The Brit Floyd show is regarded as the world's greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd and "the perfect rock show" (LA Times). Complete with multiple moving light designs, lasers, inflatables, and theatrics, a Brit Floyd show is as close as fans will ever get to experiencing the magnificence of a Pink Floyd show live.
The Capitol Steps began more than 30 years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together, the performers have worked in a total of 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, Orange Is the New Barack. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. There's never a shortage of material.
The powerhouse all-male Argentinian dance company Che Malambo excites audiences with a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song that originated in the 17th century in the South American pampas. It evolved from competitive duels among the Argentinian gauchos (South American cowboys) that tested agility, strength, and dexterity. It soon evolved to include what is now its hallmark, zapeteo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones. Che Malambo is now thrilling audiences around the world with this new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas.
"There are a number of good singers, a smaller handful of truly great singers, and then there's Johnny Mathis." - Barbra Streisand
A sublime vocalist whose approach to pop music eclipses passing fads and trends, Johnny Mathis has performed songs in an incredible variety of styles and categories, from music composed for stage and film to golden-era jazz standards, contemporary pop hits, and holiday music, all of which has assured his reputation as one of the most enduring vocalists in music history. Best known for supremely popular hits like "Chances Are," "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late," and "Misty," Mathis has recorded close to 80 albums and six Christmas albums, and he recently released his newest album, entitled Johnny Mathis Sings the Great New American Songbook.
Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a room full of "students" (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the students for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.
The Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Newsboys welcome back to the stage former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel for the Newsboys United Tour, showcasing all the hits under one roof for one tour.
Furler, a founding member of Newsboys and the group's former drummer and lead vocalist, embarked on a successful solo career in 2009. During his tenure, the band earned five gold recordings and released such classic hits as "Shine," "Breakfast," and "He Reigns." As Newsboys' bass player, Joel was featured on multiple albums and sang lead on the group's hit single "Entertaining Angels." Since his departure, Joel has bowed seven recordings as well as 2015's acclaimed Word Worship set, Zealand Worship — The EP.
The Piano Guys became an internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original, self-made music videos. The group consists of just one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. The duo are joined by producer and videographer Paul Anderson and music producer and songwriter Al van der Beek.
The Piano Guys have made over 65 videos, including an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." Their spectacular videos have netted over 1.2 billion YouTube views and over 5.4 million subscribers. Currently, The Piano Guys have over 1.6 million Facebook fans who have shared videos like "Michael Meets Mozart," which features over 100 tracks of cello textures, including a deep bass drum sound created by tapping on the cello body; a shaker sound made by Nelson rubbing rosin on his bow; and a record-scratch noise caused by his scraping a quarter on the strings.
Rockin' Road to Dublin is the new sensation that combines the art of an Irish dance show and the power of a rock concert with the finish of a Broadway theatrical production. Starring world champion Irish dancers Scott Doherty and Ashley Smith, Rockin' Road to Dublin is a must-see spectacle.
In this stunning world premiere, The White Card unfolds a meticulously crafted story, raising uncomfortable questions about what is — and who are — on display. Exploring contemporary headlines and cultural touchstones, Claudia Rankine's The White Card refuses to remain "just a play," safely entrenched on the stage. Like her 2014 New York Times best-selling book of poetry entitled Citizen: An American Lyric, this new play unpacks the insidious ways in which racism manifests itself in everyday situations, prompting the question, "Can American society progress if whiteness stays invisible?"
In the elegant loft of a powerful, well-intentioned white couple in the New York City art world, a black artist named Charlotte Cummings arrives in the hopes of selling her new work. When the couple's activist son joins them for dinner, tensions arise, truths are interrogated and the notion of intent — both conscious and unconscious — becomes paramount.
