Opening Soon


  • May 15, 2015 - June 13, 2015


    What better way to stage Moss Hart’s riotous backstage comedy than with an all-star cast of Boston’s brightest and best comedians . . . and that’s just what we’ve assembled!

    Set in the Ritz-Carlton Boston, Light Up the Sky is a backstage comedy about the colorful artists involved in breathing life into a Broadway-bound play and that moment of anticipation and terror just before an audience sees it for the very first time. Meet the grand, charismatic leading lady, the hopeful young playwright, the high-strung director, the boorish producer, and, of course, the leading lady’s eccentric mother in this affectionate and hilarious look at THE THEATRE!
