David Vining directs this version of the rom-com, on stage through Saturday, September 22, in which characters are placed near an Ivy League college in 1914. The swearing off of women, Latin-loving nerds, and the famously meta play-within-a-play all follow.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 16, 3 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 22, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 6. Continues through Sept. 22, 2012
