• Joe Mazza, Brave Lux
  • Coach takes questions from the press in Oh, the Humanity!

There aren’t many shows to cover this week, but there are plenty to recommend. For instance: Common Hatred, a new homage to Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard by lyrically named local playwright Calamity West, and Oh, the Humanity!, a collection of five short plays from Thom Pain (Based on Nothing) author Will Eno. Both productions excel by virtue of their sad, humorous, and disarming honesty.
