A troupe whose talents are praised by the Boston Globe and the New York Times, the 16-years-young Boston Musical Theater transports audiences from their cares and woes through a melodious comedic revue. “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” directed by company founder Charlotte Kaufman, examines satire and humor through a tuneful lens. Ears hearken to four gifted singers quadrilaterally harmonizing satirical songs by composers such as Tom Lerher, George Gershwin, and Stephen Sondheim, flanked by a jazz trio who backs their every belt with interweaving instrumentals and enthusiastic high-fives. The performances ensue at the Maxwell Auditorium at the National Heritage Museum, a 390-seat setting that features six handicap-accessible seats and an up-to-date sound system. Seats are first come, first served, so arrive early to secure a favorite view of the stage or arrive late to instigate sudden sessions of musical chairs.
