Many of Boston’s local theaters are rolling out new shows for you to enjoy this fall. You can see classics like My Fair Lady at The Lyric Stage and Arthur Miller’s Broken Glass at the NewRep Theater. The A.R.T. and Centastage both have world premieres, and I’ll definitely be checking out Zeitgeist Stage Co. production of The Boys in the Band.
