The Boston theatre scene is currently offering up two little musical compilation concoctions for the summer. Side by Side by Sondheim is playing at the New Rep. And A Marvelous Party is going on at the ART.
However, the Boston Metro reviewer is not amused, as indicated by the headlines:
"Side by Side Stinks"
"Not So Marvelous"
In the ART review "he hopes these types of shows are not becoming a trend."
Next summer, the theaters will probably hope he'll be on vacation.
