Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

CentaStage returns to the Boston Center for the Arts with a festival of short plays entitled Plays on Tap. Lots of local writers represented, including fellow blogger Patrick Gabridge.

BadHabit productions presents David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow at the Factory Theater in the South End. Glengarry Glen Ross overshadows this interesting Mamet work, which I suspect still suffers due to the fact that Madonna originated the female lead on Broadway.

Way Theater Artists present the Boston Premiere of novelist Don Delillo's Love Lies Bleeding at the Boston Playwrights Theater.

Ryan Landry serves up a new offering starting this weekend: Medea. This is Landry's take on the classic character from tragedy. (My favorite line from the publicity: "After all, why should the A.R.T. have all the fun?!")

Speaking of the A.R.T. they are running Julius Caesar at the Loeb Drama Center right now.

One more weekend to catch Speakeasy's production of Douglas Carter Beane's The Little Dog Laughed.
