Here’s a treat for musical theater lovers everywhere (and Sondheim-philes in particular): a concert version of Sondheim’s 1970 musical take on marriage, love and commitment, with a score featuring such spectacular tunes as “Getting Married Today,” “The Ladies Who Lunch” and “Being Alive.” Neil Patrick Harris (who apparently can do most anything) stars as bachelor Bobby, and Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks, Patti LuPone, Martha Plimpton and Anika Noni Rose are also featured. Whew, “I’ll drink to that”! 9 p.m. Friday on KCTS

Ghost Light Theatricals’ parody of television police procedurals and cop/buddy movies, “LAPD: SMU” features funny work from Steve Scheide (who looks like he just stepped off the set of a 1970s Burt Reynolds “Smokey & the Bandit” flick) and Justin Ison. And it was a blast trying to recognize the television theme songs played during transitions (I think I caught “Hill Street Blues,” “Get Smart,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “NYPD Blue”). Great job everyone.
A lovely way to finish off an afternoon of theater-going. Thanks, folks.
I’m such an easy mark for this sort of show, but I was in no way prepared for the delicate, lovely and moving “Lark Eden” (now playing at the Theater Schmeater).
Natalie Symons’ drama tells the story of three Southern women, lifelong friends who communicate through notes, letters and telephone calls over decades of love, marriage and loss. Symons’s script and direction, and the amazing cast (Teri Lazzara, Katie Driscoll and Michelle Chiachiere) are all top notch.
Only two performances left. If there’s any chance you can go, just go.
