Our picks this week: Mr Burns, The Royal Holloway Choir & Nine Dragons

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

Your best bet on stage right now is the Little Mountain Lion Productions presentation of  Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, a post-electric play (until Apr 21). What our reviewer calls a “searingly smart dark comedy”, survivors gather following a global catastrophe and attempt to recount the Cape Feare episode from the television show The Simpsons.
