Boston Court: Creative, Bold and Daring

There are a lot of buzzwords to describe Boston Court’s artistic vision; among them in their mission statement is creative, bold and daring. In the broadest terms, these are certainly applicable, but what sets Boston Court apart from other theaters requires the experience of seeing one of their productions to appreciate the uncompromising and dedicated passion they have to the eclectic, avant-garde and wholly original approach to classic and contemporary texts. As Co-Artistic-Director Jessica Kubzansky explains, “What makes something a Boston Court show requires it to be inherently theatrical, textually rich and visually arresting.” Now finishing their 11th season, Boston…

Why Theatre? Why Now?

Theatre has been an institution of western culture for more than 3000 years. That’s a ton of tradition, and a lot of baggage. While admittedly there have been periods where the art was overshadowed by message, by-in-large the form has held up fairly well. Each age has found a place for this indomitable art, and every era has added to the mystique of what it can all mean.

Arts and Entertainment

Recently there has been a rumbling, a conversation in the zeitgeist, pondering the value of theatre. There seems to be some contention about whether theatre is entertainment, or a forum of change. At the center is the age-old conflict between art and entertainment. Which comes first, and which is the master. Does one have a dominant position, and should that influence the other. And more to the point of this writing, how does that influence theatre. It is without question that theatre is a high art. It is a collaborative effort by many artists in which the end product is…
