A Season in review: 2015-2016

Every time I tell someone that I work at The Music Hall, they ask me what my favorite thing that I’ve seen at the theater. I always respond that it’s hard to pick because each one is a favorite for a different reason. Today, as we end the season, I thought I would share some favorite memories from this past season.

Film discussion: A Hologram for the King

Well, it finally happened yesterday, the official first day of summer and the longest day of the year. And that means that the New England race to pack as much gardening, drinks on the deck, beach time, lobster rolls, kayaking and other forms of merriment as humanly possible into about 10 weeks is in full swing. (It also means that the day will be getting shorter from now on, but I don’t want to depress anyone.) Read More Read More

Help us Fill The Hall

As I sit down to write this week’s blog, I realized that today marks my two year anniversary here at The Music Hall. As I think about my time here at the theater, I’m reminded of so many great shows that I’ve seen, amazing books that I’ve read and then heard their authors discuss, and most importantly getting to be a part of an organization that doesn’t just strive to entertain but actively works to make the world a better place. Incidentally enough, I’m also coming up on the year anniversary of my weekly Wednesday blog. As I took my trip down memory lane, I realized that I began this series talking about the First Fill The Hall event and I felt that today, it was fitting to do the same. Read More Read More

Film discussion: The Lobster

We don’t hear much from filmmakers in Greece these days (and no, I don’t count My Big Fat Greek Wedding), but given that country’s position at the foundation of Western Civilization, that seems like a shame. A country that gave us The Iliad and the Odyssey and a dysfunctional family of gods that could go straight onto reality TV—The Real Gods of Mount Olympus!—might tap into some interesting places in our collective psyche.
