|The cast of Bohemia (John Cornicello)|
The list of productions opening in January is shorter this year than most, but there are a lot of very interesting choices to see on our local stages. It’s a mix of old (I Do, I Do and Arsenic and Old Lace) and new (B and Last of the Boys). Get your calendars out and start getting those tickets!

Smart and unwavering, Helena has pinned her heart to Bertram. He wants nothing to do with her and runs off to the wars for adventure and to escape his newly-arranged marriage. Helena follows him.
