What to see right now

This weekend confirmed for me that we're in another of those moments - which are becoming more and more common these days - when all the most exciting and intellectually challenging theatre in Boston is actually on our smaller stages rather than at BU or Harvard. Right now the best shows in town are Truth Values, at the Central Square Theater, which just got extended in their studio space for another week; Beau Jest's remarkable world premiere of The Remarkable Rooming House of Madame LeMonde (the witty trailer below), which played the Charlestown Working Theater for only two nights but will re-appear in Provincetown this weekend, and The Savannah Disputation, Evan Smith's clever (and hilarious) dismantling of both evangelicals and Catholics, from SpeakEasy Stage at the BCA through Oct. 17. Full reviews to follow, but why wait?
