In 1844, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Society began producing original, elaborate annual shows written by and starring its members -- and while a lot has changed at Harvard since then, that yearly tradition has not. This year marks the society's 170th production: "Intermission Impossible", a ridiculous World War II-era theater comedy that sees alcoholic playwright Tennessee Whiskey trying to prepare for his Broadway debut while contending with an absurd group of characters with even more absurd names, like aging actress Faye Dinaway, pageant queen Amber Wavesofgrain and hunky sailor Sal Pacific. Men play all the roles in this bawdy, old-school burlesque at Farkas Hall in Cambridge -- but women are involved in all other aspects of the production, from writing to music to producing the show. Being a part of Harvard history has never been this fun -- or funny! [less-]

April 4, 1968 was a momentous day for Marcus Thompson. That was the day the young violist made his debut in a recital at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It also turned out to be the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Thompson learned of King's death not long before walking onstage. Needless to say, the news "was a very heavy burden to carry." But it also marked the start of an illustrious career for the Juilliard-educated musician, who then, as now, was one of only a handful of African-Americans to find success in classical music. It was with these twin legacies in mind -- King's and his own -- that Thompson, now an Institute professor at MIT, designed the program for his upcoming recital at Kresge Auditorium on Feb. 24. The concert, which is part of MIT's Sounding Series, presented by the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology and Music and Theater Arts, coincides with the 50th anniversary of King's death, as well as the founding of the MIT Black Students' Union. The program begins with Vivaldi's "Concerto for Viola D'Amore and Strings." Next up is "Rothko Chapel," an exquisite work by the 20th century composer Morton Feldman. The program also boasts the Boston premiere of Elena Ruehr's "Shadow Light," a concerto for solo viola and string quartet. The evening's final installment, Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Flos Campi," features the MIT Chamber Chorus under the direction of MIT's Director of Choral Programs, Dr. William Cutter. [less-]

The letter S -- definitely one of the cooler letters around. But cool enough to base a whole acrobatic ballet around? You'll count that a solid "yes!" after you see this show.

This original comedy about motherhood rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don't always talk about: It's overwhelming, it's exhausting and it's also very, very funny. From the joys of infertility, through reading the same books over and over (and over), to finally seeing your baby get on that school bus, this play mines the all-too-relatable laughs and tears of the early years of motherhood. As four characters tell their individual stories -- either directly to the audience in monologues or in scenes with each other -- every mother in the audience will be nodding and laughing in sympathy with all of the labor stories, frustrations of a simple trip to the store, quests to connect with other mothers and so much more. Enjoy this theatrical tribute to "the toughest job you'll ever love" at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham. [less-]
