The week’s other openings

Silver Spoon; Cradle and All; Nazi Hunter—Simon Wiesenthal

Silver SpoonNora Theatre Co.Cambridge, Mass., (866) 811-4111This new show by Amy Merrill “tells an unusually political story” for a romantic musical, said the Boston Herald. Merrill’s tale of an affair between two 1960s radicals, one of whom happens to be a secret heiress, is enhanced by songs from Si Kahn, and it “grabs you with its witty edge” from the start.

Cradle and AllManhattan Theater ClubNew York, (212) 581-1212A baby’s cry is both “seductive music” and “torture from the depths of hell” in Daniel Goldfarb’s new play, said The New York Times. Maria Dizzia and Greg Keller portray a regret-burdened childless couple in the first act and frazzled new parents in the second. Both scenarios are played with “sympathetic humor.”

Nazi Hunter—Simon WiesenthalTheatre 40Beverly Hills, (310) 364-3606Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal earned the nickname “the Jewish James Bond” for tracking down more than 1,000 Nazi fugitives, said the Los Angeles Times. But Tom Dugan’s one-man show “doesn’t shy away from his subject’s flaws,” even while telling gripping stories of Wiesenthal’s global hunt for high-level war criminals.
