As I make my way, now slowly, through the last decade of theater, I noticed a lack of Boston productions of some of the bigger hits on the TCG lists.
Proof,Doubt, and W;t, for instance, all received a very minimal amount of productions in the area.
Light, of course, dawned and I realized that those shows had high profile touring productions through Boston. So, many, many theatergoers in the area saw those productions.
In this same regard, we probably won't see a production of August; Osage County for a while, as it is also coming through on a post-Broadway tour. Luckily for us, Broadway tours of The Goat and The History Boys never materialized here, so we got to see local actors and directors tackle the parts.
