Top titles along with top names lead our list of what to see as days darken and theaters brighten.
Director Richard Garner reunites with former Georgia Shakes cohorts for “Shakespeare in Love,” a high comedy about a blocked bard.
What to see? What to do? It’s really up to you and what makes your holiday sing. If we planned your weekend, it’d start with 7 Stages’ Home Brew and include Aurora’s “Christmas Canteen,” “Frog and Toad” at Synchronicity; and the one-of-a-kind Libby Whittemore at Actor’s Express.
This week’s top picks: Actor’s Express introduces three new plays — by S.M. Shephard-Massat, Johnny Drago and Lee Nowell — in its Threshold series, plus openings at Stage Door Players, Synchronicity and Theatrical Outfit.
“King Lear.” “A Trip to Bountiful.” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” These are plays you don’t do unless you have your leads locked in. So, for her “Cuckoo,” the Alliance Theatre’s Susan V. Booth locked in Neal A. Ghant and Tess Malis Kincaid and surrounded them with many of the city’s best character actors.
