About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

The Comedy of Errors

What happens when a group of traveling side show performers decide to mount one of Shakespeare's first comedies for a lark? A ribald romp of mistaken identities ensues. One of Shakespeare's earliest, shortest, and funniest plays, and his first commissioned work, The Comedy of Errors takes us on a farcical ride where anxieties lock horns with the transformative power of love. Despite the absurdity, we are left with an awareness of mortality, human frailty, and a lingering question: how is the sense of self undermined when the world fails to recognize you?

Paul Rishell and Annie Raines Thursdays in September
In September, blues fans will be in for a rare treat as Smoken Joe’s presents Paul Rishell and Annie Raines for a special artist residency on Thursday nights. Although they have become known for their close attention to pre-war acoustic blues styles, Paul and Annie first found their musical common ground in a Chicago/Texas-style blues band. Paul and Annie are equally passionate about their craft and devoted to the study and performance of a wide range of blues styles, from the syncopated acoustic guitar wizardry of Blind Lemon Jefferson and Son House to Chicagoan “Little” Walter Jacob’s swinging amplified harmonica. Paul has reached what Boston Phoenix writer Ted Drozdowski called “a place deep and resonant as Robert Johnson’s crossroads, where authenticity, soul, and a sense of purpose and commitment ring out in every note he sings and plays.” Annie has added vocals, mandolin, piano, and other instruments to her musical arsenal, while being recognized by top professionals and fans worldwide as the “queen of the blues harmonica.” Says blues legend Pinetop Perkins, “She plays so good it hurts!

Peter calls his approach “soul guitar,” an appellation that alludes to his playing’s depth of feeling and character that is a combination of the deepest roots in classic American music and a look to the future. Recently, Parcek was recommended for a Grammy nomination for his album the“Mathematics of Love”.

Sarah Berry: "Castoffs & Containers" Curated Art Exhibition

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., and Athan's Bakery and Cafe are pleased to present the opening of Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers at the Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brighton. This exhibition features Sarah Berry’s mixed media pieces that combine her photographs with objects - new or used – either previously discarded or destined to become castoffs. Her photography is photojournalistic in style, capturing scenes in clear detail often with a dash of bold color. The addition of objects relating to each photograph illustrates our attempts to contain our environment, our spirit, and our physical being. They prompt us to consider that, eventually, these objects will be discarded, becoming castoffs in the World.

Light and visually appealing, her work gently, and sometimes not so gently, reminds us of the impact our ‘stuff’ has on our unique and wondrous planet, Earth. Sarah’s repurposing of everyday items hints to us to imagine ways of reusing our containers and castoffs.

"The Comedy of Errors"
The Comedy of Errors: Sideshow-Style Shakespeare Production

Classic drama gets a carny makeover when a traveling band of sideshow performers decides to mount The Comedy of Errors in this inventive and colorful production from Actors' Shakespeare Project. Fast, fantastic and full of slapstick, Comedy of Errors seems ready-made for the Midway. Shakespeare's first commissioned work, this lively comedy follows two sets of twins separated at birth who circulate in the same city for one crazy day, leaving a wake of confusion and craziness. By the time "all is made right," the audience is left with an awareness of mortality, questions of identity -- and a few really killer puns. David R. Gammons directs at Brighton High School.

Cost: $10.00 - $20.00 (Wed, 24 Sep 2014 19 )
