What to See in Boston this Week
By Jake Smerechniak
We're already finishing up the month of October and it's flying by! Concluding this coming week is Halloween, but be sure to catch at least some of the amazing theatre Boston has to offer before you go into scare-mode. Take advantage of your last chance to see some of these amazing performances that are closing next weekend, or if you aren’t a big Halloween fan and would prefer to treat yourself rather than trick others, go ahead and see a show that’s opening on Halloween night!
10/30 - 11/22 Chosen Child @ Boston Playwrights’ Theatre
On October 30th, the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre will be bringing you their production of Chosen Child, a touching play surrounding the elements that make up a family. Following the story of three generations of mothers and memories and a schizophrenic man, this performance is guaranteed to make you question the most important aspects of a tightly-bound family. Familial relationships are explored and expanded upon. Don’t miss this heart-jerker before it closes the Sunday before Thanksgiving.http://www.bu.edu/bpt/
