Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

Last Chance

Oscar Wilde takes his final bows at the Lyric Stage this weekend. The Importance of Being Earnest closes up.

Actors Shakespeare Project plays their political thriller King John until Sunday.

Openings:

Last summer I saw a delightful piece of fringe theatre at the Whistler in Dark FeverFest. It is returning, this time somewhat expanded, to the Calderwood. Imaginary Beasts presents Impossible Things starting tonight.

Gloucester Stage Company starts off their season with Billy Bishop Goes to War.

I know, I know, we all read Our Town in high school, but if you haven't seen it in a long time, it might be time to check it out again and be reminded of just why it has attained such a permanence in the American Canon. And you can do just that at Wellesley Summer Theatre for the next few weeks.

If you didn't see Ruthless the Musical at the BCA a few years you get your chance to catch it at the Cambridge YMCA in a Metro Stage Company Production.

Ongoing:

The History Boys hold court at the Roberts Theatre until June 22.

The almost universally acclaimed She Loves Me keeps the Huntington Mainstage charged up.

In the Factory Theater in the South End, David Mamet's slimy salesmen deal their dirt in a production of Glengarry Glen Ross.

Hartford Stage has been presenting Tennessee William's The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore in their continuing project of staging all of William's work.

Limited Engagement:

Comedian and Songwriter Red Peters presents his Nu-Vaudeville review, Oddville, at the Cutler Majestic Theatre.
