BOSTON, MA (April 5, 2023) – Brookline Bank announced today it is the corporate sponsor of the upcoming performances of Sister Act at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston. This musical production, directed by Leigh Barrett, with musical direction by David F. Coleman and Choreography by Dan Sullivan, aims to celebrate friendship, the joy of music, and the importance of togetherness.

Brookline Bank’s sponsorship reflects its commitment to supporting the arts and its community. “Lyric Stage is such an important cultural institution in Boston, and we are thrilled to sponsor Sister Act,” said Darryl Fess, President and CEO of Brookline Bank. “As our neighbor in the Back Bay, Lyric Stage’s new production is sure to lift spirits and bring joy to audiences.”

Performances of Sister Act begin Friday, April 7th and run through Sunday, May 14th.

“Brookline Bank has been a trusted partner for a decade,” said Lyric Stage Executive Director Matt Chapuran. “During the early days of the pandemic, they went above and beyond to help us secure two critical Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans which kept the company afloat. Especially now, not enough can be said about how banks like this are essential glue for a community and the businesses which surround it. They’re also fun to work with which makes their sponsorship of a joyful show like Sister Act all the more appropriate.”

Its mission is to produce and present live theater in greater Boston with an intimate approach that promotes inclusivity and connection.
