Top titles along with top names lead our list of what to see as days darken and theaters brighten.
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.
