In March 2017, the world premiere of Finish Line was presented by the Boch Center in association with Boston Theater Company at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre to rave reviews from local media outlets and audience members.
Directed by Joey Frangieh, Finish Line rings a local story of recovery, resilience, and determination center stage. Through a transcript created verbatim from dozens of interviews, Finish Line uses powerful firsthand accounts to show how a community came together to heal and grow stronger after a tragic act of violence. Co-created by Frangieh and Lisa Rafferty, the documentary style production features interviews from Liz Norden, mother of two sons injured in the bombings, WCVB news anchor Maria Stephanos, Massachusetts General Hospital trauma surgeon Dr. David R. King, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, 1976 Marathon winner Jack Fultz, and Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki, among many others.
