Puritanical tropes are shed and Hester Prynne is reborn in Aux Dog Theatre's production of In the Blood, an updated retelling of the Hawthorne's classic.

Acted and directed by a cadre of local talent, this imaginative piece of theater creates new in-roads with modern audiences. It opened Nov. 16, and runs weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) through Dec. 16 with tickets at just $12. Find tickets online at auxdog.com. (Maggie Grimason)Aux Dog TheatreIn the Blood

There are stories, and then there are stories of the stories behind those stories. Because, science. The popular Broadway stage musical, Finding Neverland, launching at Popejoy Hall on Dec. 13 at 7:30pm, recounts playwright J.M. Barrie’s invention of Peter Pan. Basically, he fell for a hot widow, then stole her four kids’ imaginary friend, Peter, and got famous. While exploiting child labor might seem unkind now, in jolly Dickensian London that shit was just called “work,” okay? Too young to remember Peter Pan? Dig: Skinny elfen dude, green tights refuses to grow up, flies around, befriends kids who forget about him as adults. Sadder than you realized, really. Thank God for peppy showtunes. All ages welcome, tickets range from $43 to $83. Check popejoypresents.com for more deets. Additional shows Dec. 14 to 16. (Alisa Valdes)Popejoy HallFinding Neverland
