National Pastime Closes this Saturday
From Jana Petersen
This Saturday marks the second to last Saturday to catch National Pastime at Keegan Theatre. Co-directed by Mark Rhea and Susan Marie Rhea and music directed by Jake Null, National Pastime tells the story of WZBQ, a radio station in 1933 Iowa that invents an unbeatable baseball team and broadcasts phony baseball games in order to boost its ratings. Attend the musical to find out what happens when the media catches on to the scandal.
The Moscows of Nantucket at Theater J opened last weekend and will be running through June 12. Moscows is a fast-paced, new American comedy with “its heart in Chekhov country” (Theater J). Find out what happens when a weekend of unusual family bonding turns into confrontation between two brothers who have avoided each other for years.
