Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

Opening:

November, the play that supposedly turned David Mamet into a Republican opens at the Lyric Stage. (For reference, this essay shows how the play doesn't really support Mamet's explanation of his conversion.)

The Central Square Theatre opens a play about the feisty wife of Richard Nixon's Attorney General. Martha Mitchell Calling is produced by Nora Theatre Company.

Trying to shake out the bad spirits of The Onion Cellar that still haunt the Zero Arrow Space, the ART presents The Communist Dracula Pageant, by Anne Washburn who wrote The Internationalist.

Jose Rivera's latest play Boleros for the Disenchanted opens at the Huntington's Calderwood Pavillion.


Ongoing :

Edward Albee's three act version of Seascape continues at Zeitgeist Stage at the Boston Center for the Arts.

The wacky characters continue their search for Miss Margaret Larue in Milwaukee at the Boston Playwrights Theater.

Gutenberg, the Musical, at the New Rep's Downstairs theatre, is still pressing on for another week.


Carrie Fisher keeps imbibing in her one-woman show, Wishful Drinking, at the Huntington's Mainstage.



Last Chance:


Up You Mighty Race has launched their residency at the Boston Center for the Arts with the almost universally praised In The Continuum. Your last chance is this weekend...if you can get tickets.


The Light in the Piazza, the second best received show of the Fall, so far, also loads out this weekend.


Paula Vogel's play, The Baltimore Waltz, caught the attention of many critics when it first premiered. Holland Productions is presenting the show at The Factory Theater through this weekend.
