Time to take the cultural plunge
Yes, the fall season has begun in earnest - even if the music and dance scenes are only just beginning to come to life, the theatrical calendar is already crowded.
This weekend alone I am seeing The Libertine by the new Bridge Rep at the Calderwood Pavilion, One Man, Two Guvnors at the Lyric Stage, The Grapes of Wrath at Trinity Rep (as part of its 50th season!), Seminar at Stoneham Theatre, and then the rarely-done, five hour (!) Rienzi, by Wagner, from Gil Rose's new Odyssey Opera.
And things only speed up from there. Even though it seems to only get harder and harder to mount high culture in Boston, the fact is every year there's more and more and more of it . . .
