Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

Way Theatre Artists has one more weekend left for Don Delillo's Love Lies Bleeding. The novelist's rumination on end of life issues is filled with good performances and, (as is the style of many novelists writing for the stage,) piles on interesting metaphors on top of each other. Edge Boston has a review here. Louise Kennedy's take is in the Boston Globe, and Jenna Scherer's review went up in the Herald earlier in the week.

Brecht Unplugged, a program of short pieces from Bertolt Brecht's ouevre is being presented by Roxbury Repertory at Roxbury Community College.

Centastage keeps Plays On Tap at the Boston Center for the Arts. It is an evening of short plays by local playwrights.

The Lyric Stage is presenting a fantastic cast, under Scott Edmiston's direction, for the Boston Premiere of Theresa Rebeck's latest play The Scene.

The American Repertory Theatre's Julius Caesar continues at the Loeb Drama Center.

Speed-the-Plow is at The Factory Theater in the South End.

The Gold Dust Orphans's Medea wreaks havoc this weekend at Machine.
