Boston Theatre - Friday Roundup - In-City Edition


I don't have time to round-up all that is happening in the Berkshires, Cape & Islands and even Vermont.

However, there is still good theater going on in the city and surrounding areas this weekend - and there is even more coming up in the next few weeks.

Opening

Gurnet Theatre Project returns to Boston with James McManus's Cherry Smoke (Left: Jackie McCoy and Chris Graham) at the Boston Playwrights Theater.

Up in Beverly, North Shore Music Theater opens Gypsy with Vicki Lewis in the starring role.

Always, Patsy Cline opens at the Stoneham Theatre.


Last Chance (Double Header?)

Richard Dresser's Rounding Third plays its last weekend at Salem Theater Company's new space up in the Witch City.

And another show about our national game, Johnny Baseball, will end its run this Sunday at the American Repertory Theater.

Also, at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Sophie Tucker: The Last of the Red Hot Mamas sings through the weekend.


Ongoing

Over at Zero Arrow Street, The Donkey Show keeps bumping and grinding through the heat wave
