2022-2023 Season

2022-2023 Season

BOSTON’S HOME FOR THE BOLD

At SpeakEasy, we’ve had the privilege to see first-hand the powerful impact that live theatre can have on our communities — locally, nationally, and globally.

Theatre gives us a new lens to see the world. It can put us in the shoes of someone whom we’ve never met. It can put smiles on our faces during our darkest hour. It can inspire us to take action to make our world a better place.

All of the shows in our 2022-23 Season were chosen because they contain that unique theatrical power to move you: to laugh, to cry, to dance, to open up, or to make a difference. I hope you’ll join us this season for this incredible lineup of shows that demonstrate all that theatre has to offer.
