For a fraction of a ‘Hamilton’ ticket, you could open the door to theater excellence in Boston

A scene from “The Tragic Ecstasy of Girlhood’’ at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre. After Bostonians waited more than three years to see “Hamilton,’’ the blockbuster musical spent a whirlwind 8 1/2 weeks here before departing the city last Sunday. “Hamilton,’’ we hardly knew ye. Now, I’m sure the touring production of the Broadway megahit gave audiences at the Boston Opera House plenty of fond memories, and maybe even nourished their souls.

Thanksgiving should be big in Boston. So how did we let New York steal it from us?

Why don’t we have our own?” said Carmody, vice president and general manager of the Seaport Hotel. “The hotels in Boston would love to have something big on Thanksgiving, as […]

Boston Pension Liability Grows as Stock Values Take a Slide

Boston pension liability grows as stock values take a slide

Boston’s pension obligations have increased, and, as Wall Street suffered another rough day, fiscal watchdogs warn that a bear stock market could take a bite out of the gains the city has made. “It really relies on market forces,” said Matthew Cahill of the Boston Financial Commission, a watchdog organization. “You take a snapshot of it two months ago and it looks great. If you took a snapshot of it today it might not look as good.” Boston’s pension liability has ticked up over the past couple of years to $1.51 billion, up from $1.48 billion in 2016, according […]
