The Boston GlobeA bohemian in Brookline

BROOKLINE!-It ain’t easy, moving and shaking. Gabe Boyer–28-year- old playwright, pamphleteer, neophyte impresario–stood alone outside the Coolidge Corner Theatre at 2 o’clock last Saturday morning, sucking on a moody cigarette. Inside, in the upstairs theatre, a performance listed in the evening’s program as “Noel Webber and the Giant Translucent Bubble (Self-explanatory)” was taking place: musicians, dim keyboard-prodding shapes, played space- age boogie from the interior of a pillow-shaped inflatable device that completely filled the stage. The music blipped and burped as colored lights throbbed smearily through the semi-transparent plastic and the audience reclined, chatting, in a state of mild disenthrallment.
