It’s Christmastime in 1815 England. Cozy up with your favorite “Pride and Prejudice” characters and take a second look at middle sister Mary Bennet.
A holiday show for every taste. For the less spirited, the stunning “Cardboard Piano” (Actor’s Express) or the “Phantom” sequel, “Love Never Dies” (Fox Theatre).
Making Santa’s “nice” list: 4 theater companies, 2 classical music groups, 2 visual arts venues, 1 dance company and a foundation. No French hens.
The company’s merry mayhem makers invite you to kick conventional theater in the behind with their off-the-hinges take on “A Christmas Carol.”
This week’s best: 7 Stages’ “Home Brew Fest” of new plays and the must-see drama “Cardboard Piano,” opening at Actor’s Express.
