Friday To-Do: 'The Foreigner'



8 p.m., the Rep. $20-$35.

On Friday, the Rep revives what director Nicole Capri calls “one of the theater's most popular plays ever” and “definitely the most requested.” It'll be the fourth time the Rep has performed Larry Shue's comedy about an Englishman, Charlie Baker, who is so painfully shy and nervous that his friend, Froggy LeSueur, tells everyone at the fishing lodge in Georgia, where the pair are staying, that Charlie is a foreigner who can't speak or understand English. “It's not simply a farce,” Paul Tigue, who plays Charlie, says. “The over-the-top physical comedy isn't something you're bombarded with the whole time,” Capri adds. “There's smart comedy and very laugh-out-loud comedy as well as the physical comedy.” The family-friendly show runs through March 29.
