Friday Boston Roundup

The Boston Theater Marathon runs this Sunday, along with the Dragonfly Festival. Details here. So, if you are into to ten minute plays, you will be in heaven.

ART and the Hungington Theatre Company gear up for their season finales with Harold Pinter's No Man's Land and Noel Coward's Present Laughter.

No Man's Land, featuring the return of David Wheeler as a director, gets some early reviews from The Globe, Carl Rossi, and Edge Boston.

Melinda Lopez gets good news from Steppenwolf.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council wants you to lend your voice to the debate over the MassCore proposal for high school education.

Small Theatre Closings:

Theatre on Fire's Two Rooms will be wrapping up on Saturday. The 1988 Lee Blessing play about an American held hostage in the Middle East has received very positive notices . And the recent news about a Lawrence soldier in the hands of Al-Queda gives this story an added local relevance. Go ahead, see it, and get to know your way to the Charlestown space. You'll need to know because that is where Mabou Mines will be performing this summer.

Boston Theatre Works will be presenting Confessions of a Mormon Boy for the last weekend.
