Join Us at STEVE!
Wash away your winter blues with some bubbly and Broadway at Zeitgeist Stage’s SIP AND SWIRL WITH “STEVE” on Sunday, March 4th at 2:45 pm. This special matinee performance will include a pre-show sparkling wine tasting led by the master sommeliers of The Urban Grape. Prosecco, Cava, and Champagne will be on the menu, along with light bites and a lively discussion of what defines these different varieties. The event will also feature an appearance by the Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Following the tasting, guests will continue the party with “Steve,” a light-hearted comedy about a failed Broadway chorus boy turned stay-at-home dad who must examine his increasingly complicated life as another birthday approaches. The tasting event is held in the Plaza Theater lobby at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St in Boston’s South End. Tickets to the tasting are $25. Tickets to the “Steve” performance are separate and available for $20. To attend both the tasting and the show, please purchase two separate tickets. The matinee performance of “Steve” will end by 5:45 PM, so we guarantee that you will be home in time for the Oscars later that evening! (Please note that the SIP AND SWIRL is a 21+ event, the play is not.) Tickets for both events are available at BostonTheatreScene.com, 617.933.8600.

About the Show
As Steven, a former Broadway chorus boy turned stay-at-home dad, celebrates yet another birthday, he finds himself filled with fear and uncertainty. Is his partner of 16 years, Stephen, cheating on him? Is his best friend really dying? And what, exactly, has he done with his life? As the play progresses, we see him grapple with infidelity, polyamory, child-rearing, and looming death. Midlife ennui has never been so simultaneously dramatic and hilarious. A new Wicked comedy about Being Alive, What I Did For Love and All That Jazz!
The show features Adam Boisselle, Mikey DiLoreto (ZSC’s The Boys in the Band), Alex Jacobs, Mike Nilsson, Jenny Reagan (Good Television), and Victor Shopov (Bent).
Reviewing the premiere production at the New Group in New York City in 2015, The New York Times noted, “’Steve’ holds up a clear but compassionate mirror to anyone who’s been part of a post-passion long-term relationship. It earns both its laughs and its tears with uncommon honesty.”
