Ted Cutler, chairman of Outside the Box, Boston’s inaugural nine-day summer performing arts festival, has added a new show to the festival in gratitude to the first responders of the Boston Marathon tragedy. Mark Neebe of Cambrdige, MA is among several members of Boston EMS who have been given tickets to Outside the Box’s newly added show.
Cutler is providing hundreds of tickets to emergency responders and their families for a special Doo Wop show on Sunday, July 14, at the Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston. The show will feature performances by “The Duke of Earl” Gene Chandler, The Persuasions, The Tuneweavers (“Happy Birthday Baby”), Tony Funches (former lead singer of Herb Reed’s Platters), American Bandstand legend Kathy Young and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Billy Davis.
“These heroes saved many lives and kept the city safe during a very trying time,” said Cutler. “This is my small way of saying ‘thank you’ for all that they’ve done.”
Among the groups receiving complimentary tickets are Boston Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston EMS.
All other festival performances are complimentary to the public and are hosted at Boston Common and City Hall
Plaza from July 13-21. For more information and a list of acts, please visit: www.outsidetheboxboston.com.
