Theater Review: On Stage Now in Boston
By Jared Bowen

Listen to Jared's review.

BOSTON — Today on 89.7 WGBH's Morning Edition, Jared reviews two more performances happening this weekend on Boston stages. 


with a hatTHE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT
Playing at the Calderwood Pavilion through October 13

A ferociously funny play about love, fidelity, and facing one’s demons; the story centers on ex-con Jackie, who thinks he has finally turned his life around now that he’s sober and has a new job. But when he finds a strange hat in the apartment he shares with his girlfriend, he is back on the brink, and embarks on a 12-Step quest with his AA sponsor Ralph D. to find the hat’s owner.

ragtimeRAGTIME: THE MUSICAL
Playing at the Strand Theatre in Dorchester September 28 through October 7

Based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families confronting timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America in the 20th century.


Watch Jared's recent interview with the creator of Ragtime: The Musical, Terrence McNally on Greater Boston.
