You'll probably recognize Susie Essman's face from HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, on which she plays the uproariously foul-mouthed wife of Larry David's manager Jeff. But if you close your eyes, you still might find her familiar. The acclaimed comic has voiced a self-conscious spider on Adventure Time, an amorous, elderly puppet on Crank Yankers, and an alley cat in Disney's Bolt. But no matter what the role, Essman brings to it her signature sharp-tongued, wry delivery—a style that translates to her live shows as well. Her standup sets are full of charmingly blunt monologues on love, family, and modern living. Called "the most lyrical purveyor of profanity on television" by the Los Angeles Times, Essman has mastered the art of making bad words sound good.
From the street, the Wilbur Theatre looks almost like it could be a stately old family home. In fact, the Colonial-style building was always a theater, but its exterior details were copied directly from Beacon Hill's Thomas Bailey Midrich House when it was built in 1914. Even in the elegant auditorium, there's a sense of homey intimacy. Seating nestles right up to the stage so audiences can feel every note produced by the musicians and hear the tiny gears turning behind comedians' foreheads as they improvise.
