BOSTON – (February 17, 2011) – Let the love continue into March with a customized long weekend at Taj Boston, the landmark hotel at Arlington and Newbury streets, with the innovative Your Choice Package from $349 per night that can also include a performance of One Touch of Venus, the romantic musical being staged at the Boston Conservatory Theater. Select your style of accommodations, opt for a Venus-inspired spa treatment or a pre- or post-theatre dinner for two with wine, and pick your preferred performance date from March 3-6. The hotel’s concierge will arrange tickets for your choice of an 8 p.m. (Thursday – Saturday) or 2 p.m. (Sunday) performance (ticket prices additional, $10-25/ticket).

One Touch of Venus (music by Kurt Weil, lyrics by Ogden Nash, book by S.J. Perelman and Ogden Nash, based on The Tinted Venus by F.J. Anstey) is a fun 1943 romantic musical that features the engaging story of a curator who unearths a long-lost statue of Venus of Anatolia and is thrilled to display her in his New York museum.  However, a naïve young barber unwittingly brings the statue to life and the comic confusion runs rampant.  The March 3-6 performances are directed by Stacey Stephens and choreographed by Michelle Chasse with music directed by Steven Ladd Jones, and performances by an all-student cast, including Carolyn Miller as Venus and Edward Tolve as Rodney Hatch the barber.
