Hot Tickets: Boston

March 01, 2012 10:08 AM
Here are this week's Hot Tickets in the Boston area. Check back every Thursday at noon, EST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Starts Friday, March 2 I Steel Magnolias  The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength and love which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Saturday, March 3 I Comedy: Paul D'Angelo at the Brewery Exchange  Fantastic Brewery Exchange Comedy with Boston's top standup comedians -- Paul D'Angelo (Boston Magazine's "Best of Boston"), Dan Boulger (Boston Comedy Festival Winner), Matt D. (Magner's Comedy Festival Winner) and Jeff Koen (featured in the movie "Heavy Times").

Saturday, March 3 I MC KABIR featuring DUB DOWN and special guests  MC KABIR will be performing two sets of his original music with his regular band, The Dub Down Crew. The evening will also feature music by vocalists Sarah Brindell, Craig Akira and Jimmy T. as well as the amazing guitar work of Geoff Scott. This show marks the continuation of a monthly Saturday gig the band will be playing at the Lizard Lounge through the summer.

Sunday, March 4 I An Evening of Israeli Jazz  Guitarist Nadav Remez is emerging as one of today's most distinctive voices on the jazz scene, and his music is gaining the attention of fans and music critics worldwide. With melodic abilities that have been described as "haunting", his music is an intriguing combination of modern jazz, alternative rock and Jewish folk. His band features several of the most respected Israeli jazz players in NYC and Boston. This performance is part of the Boston Jewish Music Festival.

Sunday, March 4 I The Yiddish Art Songs of Lazar Weiner  The Western canon of art songso identified with Schubert, Schumann, and Brahmshas a legitimate secular Jewish counterpart in both Yiddish and Hebrew art songs of the 20th century. Lazar Weiner is justifiably considered the supreme exemplar and advocate of this genre. Having composed over one hundred art songs, he elevated that medium to unprecedented artistic sophistication. With a group of singers assembled by his son, the Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Yehudi Wyner, this will be an important and unforgettable afternoon of eloquent, and beautiful Yiddish music in a unique historic setting. Another stellar concert courtesy of the Boston Jewish Music Festival.
