Annie Comes Back to Boston

Annie Comes Back to Boston

We’ve been fortunate enough to be able to introduce our kids to theater early and often. My son could probably take it or leave it at this point, but my daughter still delights in the magic. And, honestly, it doesn’t matter to her if it’s a high school production or a full-scale Broadway affair. From… [more]

Circus 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus in Boston Review [Discount]

I was definitely intrigued when I saw that Circus 1903 was coming to Boston. You know I love a good circus!

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

Growing up in New England, a “white Christmas” was always an ideal. Sure, it comes with travel headaches, but it’s just so magical. I think that magic is captured in Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. It tells the story of a song-and-dance duo who meet a pair of talented sisters and go through a variety of… [more]

Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the whole gang live at… [more]
