Boston Theater – What to See This Fall
PIANO PERFECTION WITH PETER BENCE
If you have not seen Peter Bence perform, you are truly missing out. Not only is he a Guinness World Record holder for “Fastest Piano Player”, he puts on a heck of a show! His style is edgy and energetic and he can WOW a crowd of all ages! This is a great show to attend if you want to broaden your world through innovative musical talent, introduce your kids to incredible music, or just want to spend an evening being entertained.
WORDLESS WONDER – RICEBOY SLEEPS – JÓNSI AND ALEX SOMERS
You are sure to be awe-inspired by the storytelling power of this creative masterpiece show by Jónsi And Alex Somers. Although not typically performed live, the duo has taken their performance on the road for a well-received tour in 2019. The performance is also published as a 52-page wordless book that is rich with texture and tells the story using photographs and art rather than words.
SUAVE STORYTELLING WITH THE MOTH
Relating back to simpler times, The Moth is a literary show put on across the nation that features storytellers of all genres and backgrounds. Every show is a surprise and each is different. In one evening, you may be enchanted to hear an astronaut recollect the thrill of repairing the Hubble space shuttle in space followed by the despair of a single mom just trying to keep her family afloat in the deep dark waters of poverty. Most often, the stories told are ordinary people sharing stories to captivate the crowd, inviting them into their lives, even if only for a few moments.
JIVING AND JAMMING WITH SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE LIVE
If you enjoy the weekly small-screen version, you are sure to love seeing performances from So You Think You Can Dance Live! This is your opportunity to see all of your favorite finalists live together on stage. Disclaimer: Attending a So You Think You Can Dance Live show may tempt you to sign up for dance lessons. Do you think YOU can dance?
DARING DANCE WITH CIRQUE 7 FINGERS – PASSENGERS
Not for the faint of heart, Cirque performances have you on the edge of your seat wondering what is next. The Canadian Cirque 7 Fingers crew does not disappoint with their dynamic style and performance prowess. Want death-defying stunts? They’ve got them. Seeking choreography genius? Look no further. Thrilling, exciting, and awesome, this is a show you won’t want to miss.
TUMULTUOUS THEATER WITH SHEAR MADNESS
Laughter and edge-of-your-seat suspense is the theme for the night when you attend a showing of Shear Madness. What else would you expect from an improv murder mystery? Grab a couple of friends and spend the evening solving the mystery of who-done-it. You won’t regret it!
FLASHBACK FEVER WITH BOB SEGER
Head back in time, reminiscing of simpler days while Bob Seger entertains you with his stories and songs. Introduce your kids to “Old Time Rock And Roll” before it’s too late – this is Bob’s final tour! This is your last chance to enjoy Bob’s timeless classics live.
