Suddenly Last Summer, Raven Theatre, through June 17. Well-acted, well-directed, well-designed production of Tennessee Williams' psychological thriller pitting rich Mrs. Venable against her nieceand who knows what Sebastian did last summer! JA
Meis Julie, Victory Gardens Theater, through June 24. Strindberg wrote about money and social class in 1888 Sweden, and Yael Farber about land rights in post-Apartheid South Africa, but Dexter Bullard's direction restores the role of sex in the pursuit thereof.
The Revolutionists, Organic Theater Company at the Greenhouse, through July 8. Lauren Gunderson was last year's most-produced playwright in the U.S. ( after Shakespeare ) and this smart, frothy, female-centric romp shows us why.
20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, Lookingglass Theatre, through Aug. 18. Monster squids! Buried treasure! Captain Nemo! They're all reasons ( particularly the last one ) to make for Lookingglass' adaptation of Jules Verne's classic stories. CES
