Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup

Openings

The Savannah Disputation starts tonight. Speakeasy Stage presents Evan Smith's play at the Calderwood.

At the Charlestown Working Theatre, you can visit The Remarkable Rooming House of Madame Le Monde. This production of a Tennessee Williams play marks a return of Beau Jest to Boston stages. (Video Trailer above.) This is only a two night engagement so take notice!

Guerilla Opera presents a new opera that uses the text of the Vice Presidential Debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. Say It Ain't So Joe opens at the Boston Conservatory.


Ongoing

Sally Bowles keep singing Cabaret at Trinity Rep.

Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is at the Gamm Theater in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

August Wilson's Fences continues at the Huntington Theatre Company.

The Lyric Stage keeps brushin' up their Shakespeare with Kiss Me Kate.

Meanwhile Zero Arrow keeps dancing to a 70's beat with The Donkey Show.

The Karamozov Brothers fly on in their new show Flings and Eros at the Merrimack Repertory Theatre.


Truth Values, the one woman show about MIT, has announced an extension! It is running at the Central Square Theatre.

The Factory Theatre keeps serving up The Gingerbread Lady.

Mister Roberts sails the seas at the New Rep in Watertown.

Studs Terkel's The Good War keeps getting the musical treatment at The Stoneham Theatre.

The Superheroine Monologues flies on the Boston Center for the Arts.

On a personal note, I am probably going to miss a good many shows this early part of the season. My schedule with Superheroines combined with rehearsals and admin for Chilling Tales in October, (not to mention teaching,) has restricted my window for getting out to see stuff. I am scrambling to find a way to see Mister Roberts and Fences, but it looks like it might not happen. I just going to flat out miss Truth Values, about which I have heard really good things.
