Roughly a third of the team skipped the event in protest. The...

The attorneys general of 38 states and territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Wednesday, urging them: Please, let us bank the money generated by the country's booming cannabis business.

Dysfunction, Set In Boston

Boston Lyric Opera ’s latest production is an opera version of Margaret Atwood’s novel A Handmaid’s Tale , a story of a dysfunctional future society, staged in the most authentic setting possible, a basketball court. And not just any basketball court, but one at Harvard University, which is the setting for the novel. The first lines of the book refer to a gymnasium converted into a dormitory where the protagonist sleeps. So that’s where the opera will be performed. The opera is set in and...
