This week, Matt and I have two off-Broadway shows on the calendar. The first is called Beardo and it’s by Dave Malloy (aka the guy responsible for Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812). The plot? Basically, it’s a musical about the life and times of Rasputin. (It also stars Damon Daunno, who I saw for the first time last summer in Hadestown, one of the best shows I’ve seen since Hamilton.)
Next up, we’re going to see The Town Hall Affair, a show that was inspired by a real life 1971 panel-turned-debate on women’s liberation at a town hall in New York. (You can read more info here.) The play is not just super timely, it stars powerhouse actress Maura Tierney. (Um, she won a Golden Globe for her role on The Affair last year for a reason.)
I’m pretty excited for both. Have you seen any good theater lately?
