Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Good morning, Boston! I just hopped off my red-eye from LAX with a mask and my (vaccination) cardigan. Parting with friends is sad but there's nothing quite like returning home to your own bed.

Is this the sweet sorrow Juliet experiences as she bids "buenas noches" to her beloved Romeo? If only she knew she was returning to a different kind of bed...


Last month, we crossed the Mystic over to Chelsea for the most unique, bilingual adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. As an on-your-feet production, each scene required the audience to continuously scurry to a different corner of Chelsea Square, quite literally taking our breath away. We were wowed with the creativity and talent that characterized the actors, the staging, the costumes, and the thoughtfully crafted English/Spanish rendition. We were also wowed with how much of the play we did not remember from our high school English class (read: No Fear Shakespeare).

As a fully immersive and participatory experience, a few moshers even joined in for the hype hip-shaking half-time show:


Not sure about you, but it's been a minute since I've hung out by the harbor. Come for the carousel and stay for the hunt tomorrow night!

When: Tuesday (tomorrow!), September 14th from 6:30-8:30p ET What: Waterfront-Wide Scavenger Hunt of Downtown Boston Location: Greenway Carousel (191 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02111) Note: Boston Harbor Now has carefully crafted a scavenger hunt to reflect the unique history and culture of different areas of Boston. We will kick off the hunt with a ride on the Greenway Carousel ($4/person) and go on to answer multiple choice, short-answer, and open-ended questions about the Downtown Boston area.
