Music is the soundtrack to our lives–from the ballad you slow-danced to at senior prom to the ballad you slowly walked home alone to. Remember the good times with this GrouponLive deal to see Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt’s band, Nancy and Beth, at the Wilbur Theatre on Sunday, March 10. For $21, you get one ticket for seating in the balcony, mezzanine, or floor sections (up to a $41.70 value, including all fees). The show starts at 7 p.m., and the doors open at 6 p.m.<p>
Most of Megan Mullally’s fans got to know her as Karen Walker, the millionaire socialite with an iron liver on TV’s Will and Grace. Stephanie Hunt, the other half of Nancy and Beth, first made her presence known in her role as Devin Boland, a bass-playing teen who underwent the ups and downs of growing up as a lesbian in small-town Texas. Stardom aside, when the actresses met on set during 2012’s Somebody Up There Likes Me, they connected over a simple, somewhat quirky obsession—a shared love of boundary-pushing, old-time tunes. After expanding on the theme and perfecting their act, Nancy and Beth began to perform their covers on bigger, national stages. One particular rendition—a tribute to the 1947 toe-tapper “Jack You Dead”—left Conan O’Brien with no doubt about the state of his pulse. Another compelling cover—a raucous version of Hank Snow’s “I Don’t Hurt Anymore”—is set to titillate crowds later this year at the Sasquatch Music Festival.<p>
But even as the duo continues to build momentum and a loyal fan base, one thing remains a little less than obvious to most: why are Megan and Stephanie in a band named Nancy and Beth? The two clear the air on this issue in the following interview with Nick Offerman: <iframe width="450" height="243" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/t5irI0V4K5Q" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen="allowFullScreen"></iframe>
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."
