BTM XVIII Schedule of Plays





Here is the running order, hour by hour, of plays in next Sunday’s (May 8) Boston Theater Marathon XVIII. Make a day of it, bring your Mom, drop by for a few hours—whatever strikes your fancy. Your all-day pass ($25 in advance; $35 the day of the event) allows you to come and go as you please. As always, net proceeds from ticket sales to the BTM benefit the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, which provides financial support to theatres and theatre artists in times of need. See you there!
