The Beautiful Music All Around Us

The music you’ve always heard, but never really listened to – a truly unique experience. Legendary musician and 2013 Grammy-nominee Stephen Wade, who has delighted audiences from the White House to Broadway, brings his near-lifetime exploration of Southern musical traditions to the Stackner. Best known for his long-running one-man show, Banjo Dancing, Stephen’s newest piece is based on his award-winning recent book that uncovers the largely hidden, but surprisingly influential, makers of iconic American folksong. Drawn from the celebrated Library of Congress field recordings of the 1930s and ‘40s, this exhilarating theatrical concert features spoken word, projected images, and live music-making. The Beautiful Music All Around Us is guaranteed to be a performance unlike any you have ever seen.

Good People

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Comedy. Wise and wicked funny - a compelling story from Southie. In South Boston, gossiping and bustin’ chops is the name of the game. You can bet your weekly bingo winnings that everyone knows your personal business. Southie native Margie has found herself in tough times – no job, overdue rent, and a difficult family. With very little left to lose, Margie turns to an old flame for help, and ends up finding out that sometimes it only takes a few good people to help you succeed in life. An insightful piece about class and culture, this recent Broadway hit is darkly funny and surprisingly touching.

The Amish Project

A stirring tribute to the strength of community and the power of forgiveness. Praised by The New York Times as “extraordinary,” The Amish Project is a devastating and beautiful one-woman tour-de-force performance that compels us to question the paths we take at the crossroads of grief, rage, and clemency. Inspired by the 2006 school shootings in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, this fictional account of a real-life tragedy allows us to glimpse into the world of Amish culture, and to come to grips with the true limits of compassion and forgiveness.

Five Presidents

World Premiere Event! Brilliantly intellectual and darkly funny — not to be missed. From Emmy Award-winning writer Rick Cleveland (Six Feet Under, The West Wing, and House of Cards), comes a funny and incisive new drama about the meeting of America’s most exclusive club – the ex-presidents. Obliged to gather together on the day of Richard Nixon’s funeral, four “exes” and one “current” vent frustrations, revisit old grievances, and reveal the toll that it takes on any person foolish enough to seek the highest office in the land.
