WEEKEND EVENTS

THEATRE

As I said to my companion as we were leaving the Plymouth, Wake Up, Darling. Barry Nelson and Barbara Britton in a new tragedy that kept the Boston American "laughing right through the evening." At 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. today.

Tallulah matches wits with Carol Haney in their race for the title of Miss America of some years back. They're both pretty dry, in Ziegfeld Follies at the Shubert at 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. today.

The Devil's Disciple is George Bernard Shaw. Lyric productions' latest captures only part of The Great Man's internal satire. He was fooling fewer people than he thought when he called this one "threadbare melodrama." At the Fine Arts at 8:40 p.m.

Oedipus at Colonus is really at Fogg Court Yard. It'll be all Greek to the illiterate. At 8:30 p.m. today.

No beard, space shoes, Lambretta, cigarette lighter, or scarf is needed for admission to Poet's Theatre's current offering, The Compromise, which even your Bradford Junior or Wellesley girl will understand. 8:30 p.m. today.

Twelfth Night is nice and and the freshman people have worked very hard. At Agassiz at 8:30 p.m. today.

It's very good that there's No Exit after The Anniversary because Sartre proves much better than Chekhov, who is a Russian anyway. At Leverett Dining Hall, at 8:30 p.m. today.

The Mikado is not only beter than good; it's filled with strange twists and stranger characters; people wear white sneakers. At the Winthrop Dining Hall at 8:30 p.m. today.
