Best of Boston

2018 Best Neighborhood Diversion, Central Square

Central Square Theater

This intimate stage happens to be the only U.S. theater to enjoy a long-term collab with a research institution (MIT), hence such science-centric plays as 2018’s The Women Who Mapped the Stars, the untold story of Harvard’s 19th-century female astronomy pioneers.
