Music Returns to Wang Theatre Stage as the Boch Center Announces Ghost Light Series
The Boch Center is launching the Ghost Light Series, a live music program filmed onstage at the Wang Theatre. Set to air on New England’s Connection (NECN), the series will showcase critically acclaimed artists including Keb’ Mo’, Lori McKenna, The Mammals, Tom Rush, Noel Paul Stookey, Jonathan Edwards, and more. The Ghost Light Series will premiere Friday, September 25 at 7:30 PM and air every other week in the same time slot.
For centuries, theatres around the world have had what is known as a Ghost Light, a single lamp left shining when everyone has left. The legend is that this light protects actors, patrons and theatres from bad luck and ghosts. Each half-hour show in the Ghost Light Series will feature artists performing to an empty audience on the Boch Center stage illuminated only by the Ghost Light. There will be no amps and no spotlights, just the artists and their instruments, playing and sharing stories, and revealing what it is like to be a musician at a time when you are cut off from your audience.
