I wish I had noticed it last week; this is a great play:

Boston Art Theatre, Boston's newest theater company, opens its doors with this world premiere of Uncle Vanya, Anton Chekhov's seminal work of drama, freshly adapted and directed by Robert Kropf. The play, a tale of obsessive love, relentless regret & the stranglehold of class, is economically and savagely illuminated with B.A.T.'s actor driven production, as preposterous as it is profound.
More shows next week, WED 1/21 to SAT 1/24

* 2pm matinees on SAT & SUN
