On Stage In Our Region

On Stage In Our Region

From "Xanadu" and Shakespeare to the "Music Man," we've got the picks of what's on this season, and what's coming up this summer.

Shakespeare in a saloon, a 1980s musical on roller skates, a grown-up playground fight and a powerful remembrance of the AIDS crisis are at the center of just a few shows on area stages. Our critics discuss the picks--and the pans--in theaters now, and look ahead to some highly anticipated summer and fall shows (Hint: get ready for Kathleen Turner sightings).
