2010-09-06/12 Weekly LOVIEE

Yes, I know this one’s a bit late, too. I had hoped to have it up earlier in the week but this is the best I can do. I’m going to go ahead and start on next week’s LOVIEE as soon as I post this so it’ll be ready by Tuesday night at the latest.

Continuing This Week

The Doctor’s Dilemma, Main Street Theater – Rice Village, 2540 Times Boulevard, see description. Main Street Theater kicks off their season with the story of a doctor who has found a cure for tuberculosis but can only take one more patient. Unfortunately, he has a choice of two: a kind but pauperly fellow doctor, or an artist who is intelligent but has a devious streak. Making the situation even more tumultous is the artist’s wife, who the doctor falls in love with. Tickets to previews are $10 (Sept. 8 at 7:30pm); remaining shows (Thu 7:30pm, Fri-Sat 8pm, Sun 3pm) through October 3 are $26 to $40. 10-MSTDD
