The Curtain Report for November 15 – 21

The Curtain Report

What to See in Boston this Week
By Artistic Assistant, Jake Smerechniak

As we bolt right through the month of November, musicals and plays are popping up everywhere. A lot of runs are starting in order to finish up before the holiday season gets too busy. If you are still in Boston this coming week and aren’t leaving the city early for Thanksgiving, be sure to take advantage of the many shows that are going up. It can sometimes get a little thin in theatre attendance around the holidays. The shows are fantastic, all the same however. Many runs start and end this same week so do not wait!
