COVERT ROMANCE | POLITICS & POWER | A MODERN CLASSIC
Amidst a backdrop of 1950s paranoia in Washington, D.C., two men are swept into a passionate love affair, just as Senator McCarthy ratchets up his hunt for “sexual subversives” in the government. Based on the best-selling book by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is both a story of the heart and a taut political thriller, creating an instant contemporary classic.

Featuring Jesse Darden, Jesse Blumberg, Chelsea Basler, Vincent Turregano, David McFerrin, James Maddalena, Michelle Trainor, and Simon Dyer

Emerson/Paramount Center | ROBERT J. ORCHARD STAGE

Originally a 1930s cinema palace, the Robert J. Orchard Stage had closed in 1976 and fallen into disrepair by the time Emerson College purchased the building in 2005. Enchantingly restored in lively Art Deco style, the newly reopened Paramount Center’s largest facility is a 596-seat theatre (see in 360º view) with a brand new stage and orchestra pit. As the newest attraction in Boston’s Theatre District, the Robert J. Orchard Stage evokes the thrill of American cinema’s Golden Age while hosting world-class performing artists.
