Way Theatre Artists who just picked up an Elliot Norton Award for Best Fringe Production for The Kentucky Cycle, co-produced with Zeitgeist Stage, present The Memory of Water with a great cast: Michael Steven Costello, Marc Harpin, Liz Brunette, Lyralen Kaye, Shauna O'Brien, Elizabeth Brunette, and Amanda Good Hennessey, (Full Disclosure: One of these people lives in my house.)
Local playwright Jack Neary opens at the Stoneham Theater with his North Shore based comedy The Porch.
For the bard obsessed, you can check out Will Shakespeare's King John at the Actor's Shakespeare Project, they are doing the play downtown this time. The play has had a resurgence over the last few years, but will probably disappear from the standard repertory again soon, so you may want to catch it while you can. It has some great actor moments and a few tense scenes. Don't expect too much of the Bard's top-flight poetry, although there are some brief verses that have endured. Seeing or reading King John is kind of like watching early Hitchcock, the themes and the craftsmanship that will be developed over the course of the artist's life are illustrated very clearly.
