Gritty, sexy and thought-provoking, this musical about a society on the brink of catastrophic change is set during the rise of the Nazis in 1930s Germany. The hard-hitting story revolves around the seedy Kit Kat Klub, where patrons -- captivated by the decadent allure -- come to escape the deteriorating world outside. Written by the incomparable team of John Kander (music), Fred Ebb (lyrics) and Joe Masteroff (book), "Cabaret" is a provocative musical that remains ever-relevant, exploring the devastating results of authoritarianism, bigotry and cultural upheaval in times of political change. Enjoy this Moonbox Productions presentation of the timeless musical at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts. [less-]

They don't call Placido Domingo the "King of the Opera" for nothing -- along with winning a dozen Grammy Awards for several of his multi-platinum albums, he's performed some 150 roles in six languages, recorded more than 100 complete operas, and in what many would consider a crowning achievement, he starred as himself on "The Simpsons". Originally from Spain, Domingo gained fame as one of the Three Tenors, alongside José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti, and he's currently the General Director of the LA Opera, both conducting and performing. He'll be appearing in concert in Boston for the first time in a decade at the Boch Center, accompanied by two sopranos, Micaëla Oeste and Camila Titinger, and the Domingo Festival Orchestra, a hand-picked group of talented young musicians from the area.

Eugene O'Neill's enduring master work, "Anna Christie", is a surprisingly contemporary play that still crackles with fierce physicality, humor and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain (Lyric Stage favorite Johnny Lee Davenport) is reunited with the daughter he unwittingly abandoned to a life of hardship. It seems like Anna has found love with a shipwrecked sailor, only to be rejected by both of the men in her life when her dark past is revealed. As both her father and her suitor come to recognize their own responsibility for her plight, all three of them struggle to find forgiveness and redemption in each other. Following his acclaimed production of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", Scott Edmiston takes a fresh look at one of America's greatest playwrights. [less-]

At a beautiful country farmhouse during the summer of 1995, eight gay men come together over three holiday weekends -- Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day.
