About

Be a part of our "live studio audience" for THE SWELLTIME VARIETY HOUR, a hilarious evening of  comedy and song performed  in the style of a old-time  radio show.  

Beloved Boston actors Paula Plum and Richard Snee will be your host for this fast-paced show, featuring all new material written by Walt McGough and original SwellTime jingles composed by David Reiffel. Watch as your favorite local actors ham  it up with loyal SpeakEasy supporters for side-splitting riffs on those classic old-time soaps, oddball variety acts, and beloved game-shows.   SpeakEasy's own Paul Daigneault will direct and Paul S. Katz will music direct.   All proceeds from THE SWELLTIME VARIETY HOUR will go to support SpeakEasy Stage and its 25th Anniversary Season of Boston premiere plays and musicals.

Tickets are $75 and are now available!   A portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.  The ticket price includes admission to a post-show party with the cast and a complimentary beverage.  

Sponsorships are also available and put you right in the middle of all the fun.  

We hope you will also consider supporting the many SpeakEasy board members, supporters, and Boston artists who are donating their time and talent to put on a fantastic show. An anonymous donor has pledged to match your contribution dollar for dollar, doubling your impact. Sponsor a Participant Here
