Improv comedy and Broadway musicals collide in "Boston's Unscripted Musical Project". The B.U.M.P. troupe takes a single suggestion from the audience and uses it to spontaneously create a fully improvised one-act musical spectacular. The heroes and villains invent hilarious lyrics and choreography to tell their story, while a full band dreams up a score to match. Because every show is totally unique, you never know just what B.U.M.P. will come up with, but with veterans of Chicago's legendary Second City and Improv Olympic as well as ImprovBoston and Improv Asylum performing, you can be sure this show won't be your typical Broadway musical. Experience the mirth at Davis Square Theatre in Somerville. [less-]

Once you're done, you'll be able to say you've tried everything from a new California Cabernet to a German Riesling to a Portuguese wine made from grapes no one can pronounce.

The great author, broadcaster and journalist Studs Terkel touched a nerve in 1974 when he published "Working", an oral history of real people and the jobs they performed. From sanitation truck drivers to professional athletes, the book gave voice to a sweepingly diverse cross-section of American life and was subsequently adapted into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical of the same name. Now that you're hooked on seeing it, prepared to be reeled in -- the "Working" musical was recently updated with new songs by "Hamilton" impresario Lin-Manuel Miranda, adding a whole new level of clout and resonance for the modern age, and it's coming to the Umbrella Annex in Concord. See it and be powerfully reminded that though there is much that divides us, we are all school teachers, millworkers, waitresses and masons. We are all united by the need to work, and to find meaning in the work that we do. [less-]

Set in a local hair salon, "Shear Madness" is a hilarious whodunit with "you" as a central character and jokes and lines as up-to-date as the morning's news.
