Best of Boston

2015 Best Theater


ArtsEmerson certainly brings the world to its stages. This season alone, it hosted acrobatic feats from Montreal’s troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main in Traces; Isabella Rossellini in her cult-tastic one-woman show, Green Porno; an oil-drums-and-marimba reimagining of Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, by South Africa’s Isango Ensemble; and, from the Hub’s own Israeli Stage, a North American premiere of the affecting Ulysses on Bottles. Most impressive, ArtsEmerson realizes its global vision while remaining audience-focused and community-centric. (Cutler Majestic Theatre, 219 Tremont St., Boston)
