Funny foursome

From Itamar Moses, author of "Outrage" and "Bach at Leipzig," comes "The Four of Us," a comedy about a playwright and his novelist friend who try to make it big — and encounter some obstacles along the way. The play, making its East Coast premiere, weaves in and out of the characters' lives, pondering success, jealousy, and challenging what it means to share their art with the rest of the world.

St. Stephen's Theatre, 10th and Ludlow streets, 8 p.m. Runs through June 17. $10-32. 215-592-9560 or
