Ruffled, racy and sexy-sheer spring fashion steals the spotlight at The Gordy, Stages Repertory Theatre’s fabulous new $35 million setup a block south of its former Montrose location. Here, a warehouse with bunker-thick concrete walls that once inconspicuously housed storage and restoration facilities for the MFA has become a vibrant, state-of-the-art production facility with three separate stages, 608 seats and 70,000 total square feet. Silence your phones, unwrap all candy, and let’s get on with the show!

With Expertise in Blondes, Extensions and More, the Janelle Alexis Team Is a Go-To Salon
