This Week in Theatre: May 27, 2008


Well, the Harolds are past, Luminato is about to begin, and then we're fast into Fringe, but that doesn't mean other stuff stops. A nice mix of stuff to make you laugh and stuff to make you think, and if you're lucky, stuff that does both.

As always, if there is not a description with the show, it has been described in a previous entry.
