ART Season

ART: The Liar

Artists Repertory Theatre presents David Ives’ adaptation of Le menteur, Pierre Corneille’s 17th Century farce.

Performances May 26 through June 21. Check with ART for times and ticket […]

Mr. Burns

Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play

As these snippets from our pop culture are recited, they soon become the stuff of epic myth in this wacky, geeky and unapologically original theatric treat. Performances from May 13 through […]
