Boston theatre/arts

Yesterday, Nicole asked me for recommendations of plays and stuff (because I'm the go-to person for that) and later I was chatting with Nicki and told her I would send her links as well.  It was fun going through my files (so to speak), especially since I tend to forget about some of them.  So since a fair number of you are in the Boston area, I thought I'd post the list.  It's mostly theatre (and film), fyi.
