The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? I think alliteration is a good thing. Boston is growing into its theatre identity. The town is small enough to know each other and large enough to generate great productions…both from the major theatre companies and the fringe scene alike.
