*Newton Nomadic Theater will host a free, live-streamed production of “Love Letters” featuring Paula Plum and Richard Snee, two of Boston’s most renowned actors, on Saturday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. on the Nomad’s Facebook page. “Love Letters” tells the tale of two entire lives—from childhood through all of the twists and turns of adulthood—and has been called “a deceptively simple and quietly moving play” by the New York Times.

*Newton Theatre Company is now streaming free theater that you can enjoy while social distancing. Currently, they are featuring their own production of Madeline Miller’s “The Song of Achilles: Troy” from 2014. This visually stunning production follows the events of The Iliad as seen by Patroclus, Achilles’ companion. This production was one of Newton Theatre Company’s first encounters with Greek tragic theater, which sparked their tradition of presenting Greek tragedy outside every summer. You can watch the production now here. More info about Newton Theatre Company at newtontheatrecompany.com.
