Brown: Here at the start of a new year, we can look to Ignite! The Rep's New Play Festival, in March, and to the city's first fringe theater festival in June. But to me the best-kept theater secret in town is the National Theatre Live broadcasts on Saturday mornings at the Tivoli. Every production I've seen has been memorable, and the recent staging of One Man, Two Guvnors, which opens on Broadway in April, was hilarious beyond description. Yet the shows don't get the attendance they deserve. Too bad, because anyone who cares about great theater should be rushing to the Tivoli four or five times a year.

Friswold: I sheepishly admit I've not seen a one of those performances. Consider me duly chastened — I'm sure I'll be camping out in line for tickets to whatever the next broadcast is during the entire week of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, so don't call me during that stretch for any reason.

Welcome, Peabody, but remember that a theater experience begins before the lights come up on the stage.

Welcome, Peabody, but remember that a theater experience begins before the lights come up on the stage.

Brown: And on that cheery note, Happy New Year to all!
