<em>High School Musical 2; Farragut North; All&rsquo;s Well That Ends Well</em>

AtlantaHigh School Musical 2Fox Theater(404) 881-2100 The second stage show based on the wildly popular Disney franchise “lacks the freshness, charm, and the can’t-get-them-outta-my-head songs” of the original, said Variety. No performers from the TV movies are here, but die-hard young followers of Troy and Gabriella aren’t likely to be disappointed.

New York Farragut NorthAtlantic Theater Company(212) 279-4200“Political junkies feeling the pangs of post-election withdrawl” should flock to Farragut North, said the New York Post. Beau Willimon has spun his experience working on Hillary Clinton’s and Howard Dean’s campaigns into an engrossing political drama starring Chris Noth.

Washington, D.C.All’s Well That Ends WellClark Street Playhouse(800) 494-8497Director Joe Banno’s quirky version of Shakespeare’s even quirkier original ­renders “the play less as a comedy than as a romance,” transplanting it to 1930s Europe, said The Washington Post. Parker Dixon and Mundy Spears lead a “functional, if not flashy,” cast.
