“The 12 Dates of Christmas” follows the misfortunes of Mary, who’s sees her fiancé kiss another woman while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. Back in to the dating pool she goes. Uh-oh.
Our ideal weekend: Taking tea with Frog and Toad at Synchronicity Theatre, and seeing Libby Whittemore at Actor’s Express and “A Little Princess” at Theatrical Outfit.
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.
This week’s column has a red and greenish tint, and there’s a musical or comedy or drama for nearly every taste.
