SHARE Behind the scenes: Bill Zwecker’s picks for this weekend

The much-anticipated world premiere of Rebecca Gilman’s new play “Luna Gale” goes into previews January 18th at the Goodman Theatre. The play, directed by the Goodman’s Tony Award-winning artistic director Robert Falls, is a dramatic tale about a social worker becoming deeply involved in the lives of two drug-addicted teens — accused of neglecting their infant child.

This is just but one show to see this weekend. Watch the video for more of my picks.
