CCM Professor of Drama Rocco Dal Vera discusses the unique characteristics of the Boston dialect in this new video from our friends at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC). Dal Vera is the dialect coach for the regional premiere of Good People, running through September 23 at ETC.

The CCM connections don’t end there, though: Good People features costumes designed by CCM Associate Costume Designer Rebecca SenskeAs previously reported, the show (and the video above!) also features CCM Drama alumnus Michael Carr (BFA ’11) in the role of Stevie.


  1. How I enjoyed CCM Video: Drama Professor Rocco Dal Vera Discusses the Boston Dialect. I am a Boston gal, who happens to have a daughter studying at CCM, and listening to Prof. Dal Vera discuss the Boston dialect made me smile. Thank you!
