About Lowell
map
Lowell Massachusetts is located in northeastern Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston and is accessible via the major highways of routes 495, 3, and 93 as well as the MBTA commuter rail.

Lowell's National Park serves as a tribute to the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry that was so much a part of New England in the 19th century. The rehabbed mill buildings, the trolley and canal, and the museums are all part of Lowell's Historical tours.

The 19th century mill buildings host small and large companies at unique financial incentives which serves to promote new growth and development in Lowell. The Lowell Auditorium is a 3,200 seat venue which hosts many of the country's best performers at very reasonable prices.

The city's workforce is computer literate and supported by the schools in the district. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and Middlesex Community College. The student population creates a profitable atmosphere for retail businesses in downtown Lowell and surrounding neighborhood.

Lowell is built around the Merrimack River and its diverse canal system which adds to its character and appeal. Residents proudly proclaim that Lowell has something for everyone with its unmatched quality of life.

The late Ed McMahon from the Tonight Show was born in Detroit and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series Big Top.

"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"
Sondheim's Musical Farce A Funny Thing ... Starring Eddie Mekka (Laverne & Shirley)

Tony-nominated singer-actor Eddie Mekka, much beloved as "The Big Ragu" from the hit sitcom Laverne & Shirley, stars as the mischievous Roman slave Pseudolus in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The winner of six Tony Awards, this slapstick romp sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies -- all adding up to one uproarious night of theater. Sondheim collaborated with writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) to seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. This Greater Lowell Music Theatre production includes favorites like "Lovely," "Bring Me My Bride" and the Broadway classic "Comedy Tonight."

Two-Fer Tuesday: Tangerine
Directed by Sean Baker Starring Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, Karren Karagulian English 1 hr 27 mins, rated R It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, “Generation Kill”) hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the sex worker and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker’s prior films (STARLET, PRINCE OF BROADWAY) brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. TANGERINE follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., TANGERINE defies expectation at every turn.
