'Green Eyes' Gets a Room

Tennessee Williams’ long-lost erotic thriller “Green Eyes” (he wrote the one-act play in 1970, but it was only published posthumously in 2008) is at the Ames Hotel, after a raved-about run at the Hudson in Manhattan.

The steamy play centers on the (sometimes violent) sexual desires and fantasies of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Dunphy, a newlywed couple honeymooning in New Orleans — ooh-la-la — and the site-specific staging means that the performances, directed by Travis Chamberlain, are, er, intimate. There are only 25 tickets available per show, and several of the dates are already sold out.

18+. $35, 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Wednesday, Thursdays, and Sundays; 8 and 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, through Feb. 12. 617-292-7110, brownpapertickets.com
