With his distinctive husky voice and broad smile, George Lopez is one of the most recognizable personalities cracking wise today. But his fame didn't happen overnight—in fact, Lopez's big break didn't come until 2000, after he had spent years performing standup comedy. That was the year he was approached by television executives to produce and star in his own sitcom. George Lopez became a hit on ABC during its six-season run, and ensured that audiences would always remember his name. From there, Lopez hosted his own talk show on TBS, Lopez Tonight, and loaned his face or voice to multiple movies. And, staying true to his comedy roots, he also filmed a pair of HBO comedy specials. Onstage, Lopez demonstrates the charisma of a polished professional, making sharp observations about politics, romance, and family life.
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. "The auditorium is, in its chaste way," architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater's website, "the handsomest of any Boston playhouse."
