Best of Boston 2007 Theater, Alternative
Jimmy Tingle's Off Broadway Theater
255 Elm St.
Somerville, Massachusetts 02144
A mediocre alternative theater is content to stage Brecht rip-offs and plumb the depths of existential mime. A great alternative theater like Jimmy Tingles Off-Broadway hosts political fundraisers, film panel discussions, local comedy, cabaret, storytellers, and rock bands. Topping the marquee are must-see popular productions like Shay Duffins channeling of Brendan Behan in Confessions of an Irish Rebel, not to mention Tingles own venerable one-man shtick.
