Matt & Ben
July 7 - August 14, 2011
Central Square Theater presents MATT & BEN, the gender-bending, Off-Broadway hit about our own hometown boys’ rise to fame, by Mindy Kaling (of NBC’s The Office) and Brenda Withers. Featuring Marianna Bassham as Ben and Philana Mia as Matt, performances are July 7 – 31 at Central Square Theater.
We all know the story: Best friends from Cambridge write a screenplay, star in the hit movie, win the Academy Award, and suddenly the world can’t get enough of them. But what’s the real story behind Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s breakout success? Can fame literally land in your lap? MATT & BEN comes home to Cambridge with a sharp skewering of celebrity culture and an affectionate look at Boston’s favorite bromance.
