Feature

The week’s other openings

She Loves Me, The Legendary Times of Bulgakov, Prisoner of the Crown

Boston
She Loves Me
Boston University Theatre
(860) 527-5151
This “valentine of a production” shouldn’t be missed, said Frank Rizzo in Variety. Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s 1962 musical about anonymously corresponding lovers who happen to work together in a Budapest perfumery is warmly and tastefully staged by director Nicholas Martin.

Los Angeles
The Legendary Times of Bulgakov
ARTEL Theater
(323) 871-8382
This paean to Soviet novelist-playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, author of the surreal Master and Margarita, is too ambitious, said Steven Leigh Morris in the LA Weekly. But the ensemble-created piece is undeniably a “finely crafted creation of visual theatricality, macabre symbolism, and high-wire emotion.”

New York
Prisoner of the Crown
Irish Repertory Theatre
(212) 727-2737
“The 1916 trial of Sir Roger Casement had everything a dramatist could want: salacious revelations, political intrigue,” and a protagonist accused of treason, said Jason Zinoman in The New York Times. But playwright Richard Stockton can’t corral all the aspects of the flamboyant Irish nationalist’s life.
