Boston Theatre Friday Roundup

There is simply so much theatre going on that I can't possibly cover it all.

The Kentucky Cycle continues at the Boston Center for the Arts.

Brendan, Ronan Noone's second play at the Wimberley this season is up now. Todd Williams at the Huntington's Blog has posted some backstage stuff as well as an intriguing photo of the set model, (which looks to be emulating the reflective glass of the Hancock building.)

You have a couple of more nights to catch Image Theatre's reprise of the well-recieved Distant Music, the play is both setin and produced in a bar.

If you are out in Lowell you may want to catch Merrimack Rep's Regional Premiere of The Pursuit of Happiness about a high school senior who decides that going to college is the first step towards indoctrination into a soul-crushing grind.

Boston Playwright's Theatre has started up their season with The Devil's Teacup. Note that Melinda Lopez's new play will be at the BPT in February.

Tim Robbin's production of 1984 plays for tonight and tomorrow night only at Northeastern University.

For those who missed Speakeasy Stage's long run of Bat Boy the Musical a few years ago, it is being presented at the Factory Theatre.

Please welcome the Lyric's production of Christopher Shinn's Dying City, about the aftermath of soldier's death. (Remember, there is a war going on!)

Actor's Shakespeare Project opens the curtains on an all woman MacBeth at the Studio 210.

The Charlestown Working Theatre presents the Theater on Fire production of Gasping which is by one of the writers of Blackadder.

And Boston Theater Works closes A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum this weekend.

Whew! You can't say there isn't anything to go see.
