What to See in Boston this Week

By Jake Smerechniak

We are making our way through November with attractions everywhere in Boston as usual. Many productions have have begun their runs. Be sure not to miss out on these performances before the shows come down. With Thanksgiving upon us, there’s only so much time left to see shows before you go out of town or have relatives over. Don’t forget to support school performances in the area as well, as many colleges have Fall cabarets, open mics, and many other concerts and productions before the vacation hits.

11/12 – 11/23 Krapp’s Last Tape / The Dumb Waiter @ Boston Center for American Performance
