This weekend is rich with things to see and do. Our top pick: Synchronicity Theatre’s “In the Next Room, or the vibrator play,” a Pulitzer- and Tony-nominated sex comedy by Sarah Ruhl. It marks actor Daniel May’s (“The Walking Dead”) first time on an Atlanta stage in four years. Other don’t-misses: “Stupid F*cking Bird” at Actor’s Express, “A Steady Rain” at the Alliance and, of course, the ASO.
