Are you sick and tired of the jewelry ads insisting that half the population deserves a gift today? Wishing it was possible, not to mention affordable, to get into a restaurant tonight? ALONE? Can't stand the idea of one. more. person. prying, asking, "What are YOU doing tonight?"

What ARE you doing tonight?

You should be going to Thorns, ImprovBoston's yearly show about the reality of love on Valentine's Day. The show, a place both to vent about and celebrate love, features a variety cast of comedy performers: songs about lost virginity, staged readings of high school love letters, live comedy, and video productions.
Show creator Deana Tolliver says, "The reaction had been really positive. We've had sold out shows each year. I think the reason people like it is because of the central message of the show. Sure, we all get our hearts broken, but that doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile to fall in love. We laugh together about the kind of pain everyone had to go through at one time our another, but at the end of the show we hope the audience leaves feeling hopeful about love."
And who couldn't use a little uplifting spirit today?
