The plot of Theater Latté Da’s newest production Beautiful Thing is nothing too scandalous these days: two teenage boys who unexpectedly fall in love. Still, the topic comes during an emotionally relevant time. It wouldn’t be Theater Latté Da without music though, specifically that of the Mamas and Papas which is weaved throughout the story, with localite Emily Schwab singing Mama Cass. Beautiful Thing opens on Friday at The Lab Theater and runs through March 18.
