Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

The American Repertory Theatre continues its Opera/play-thon with Don Giovanni and Figaro. Reviews are out in the Globe, Phoenix, Theatre Mirror, EdgeBoston, and the Weekly Dig.

The English Channel, Robert Brustein's dramatic presentation of Bardolatry is at Suffolk University. Some reviews are here, here, here.

At the Fort Point Theatre Channel Sarah Kane's Psychosis 4:48 enters its second weekend. The Weekly Dig reviews it here.

PS Films opens Simon Says at the Black Box in the BCA tomorrow night.

Speakeasy's Boston premiere of Zanna Don't kicks off this weekend.

Dario Fo freaks can check out My Fair Heathen's production of Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist at the Studio Theatre at Northeastern University tonight and tomorrow night only.

And Campbell Scott seems to be seducing the crowds, or at least the reviewers, as Boston Playwright Ronan Noone's amoral muckracker Augustine Early in The Atheist. Thomas Garvey talks about the original Early Augustine at Hub Review, Louise Kennedy talks about the differences between readings and productions in her Globe review. And it looks like Jenna Scherer, the Weekly Dig's resident reviewer, is freelancing for the Herald's all but defunct Arts pages. (Perhaps since Scott is something of a film star, they felt they had to cover Noone's play?)

New Rep opens Streetcar Named Desire this weekend, and Lyric Stage is up and running with Man of La Mancha.
