In 1844, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Society began producing original, elaborate annual shows written by and starring its members -- and while a lot has changed at Harvard since then, that yearly tradition has not. This year marks the society's 170th production: "Intermission Impossible", a ridiculous World War II-era theater comedy that sees alcoholic playwright Tennessee Whiskey trying to prepare for his Broadway debut while contending with an absurd group of characters with even more absurd names, like aging actress Faye Dinaway, pageant queen Amber Wavesofgrain and hunky sailor Sal Pacific. Men play all the roles in this bawdy, old-school burlesque at Farkas Hall in Cambridge -- but women are involved in all other aspects of the production, from writing to music to producing the show. Being a part of Harvard history has never been this fun -- or funny! [less-]

This original comedy about motherhood rips away the gauzy mask of parenthood to reveal what all mothers know but don't always talk about: It's overwhelming, it's exhausting and it's also very, very funny. From the joys of infertility, through reading the same books over and over (and over), to finally seeing your baby get on that school bus, this play mines the all-too-relatable laughs and tears of the early years of motherhood. As four characters tell their individual stories -- either directly to the audience in monologues or in scenes with each other -- every mother in the audience will be nodding and laughing in sympathy with all of the labor stories, frustrations of a simple trip to the store, quests to connect with other mothers and so much more. Enjoy this theatrical tribute to "the toughest job you'll ever love" at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham. [less-]
