Things Your Man Won’t Do

Rachel seemingly has it all, including a fulfilling career and a loving relationship with her long-term boyfriend, Demetrius. Although Demetrius is hesitant when it comes to marriage—a step Rachel is ready to take—he agrees to explore their potential in premarital counseling. But there’s one snag: the counselor he picks just happens to be a man from Rachel’s past, creating a situation tinged with temptation, confusion, and humor.

The all-star cast, which includes Half & Half’s Essence Atkins and Cool Runnings star Leon Robinson, brings the undulating dramedy to life on stage thanks to a rich script by NAACP Trailblazer Award–winning playwright Je’Caryous Johnson. When appearing on Virginia This Morning, Johnson shared his thoughts on the piece, describing it to be “a socially conscious, entertaining, inspirational . . . eye-opening experience.”

Boch Center

The Boch Center's calendar of musicals, operas, rock concerts, dance productions, standup comedians, and classic-film screenings is a culmination of its decades as a Boston historical landmark. Starting out in 1925 as a "movie cathedral," the theater—then a renovated arts center capable of housing the most ambitiously scaled Broadway productions—morphed into the headquarters of the Boston Ballet. Throughout all its names and incarnations, the venue has retained the grandeur and luster of some long-lost wing of Versailles. In the lobby, dark-veined columns carved from imported marble vault skyward toward an arched ceiling and an enormous crystal chandelier that hangs like a pendulum from its center. In the theater itself, frescoes and intricate filigree surround the golden cupola that looms over a sea of scarlet velvet seats—a sight as awe-inspiring to audiences as it is terrifying to first-graders performing their first clarinet recital there.

Customer Reviews

The singing was uniformly outstanding. The mechanics of the staging was quite interesting.

The actors who played Hedwig and Yitzhak were fantastic!

It was like joining some old friends. Always loved the show (one of my all time favorites), so it was fun to "sit down" with the characters again.
