New York Magazine’s “Fall Preview” issue hit newsstands this week.  It’s chock full of the movies, television shows, art exhibits, books, restaurants, music, dance, and, yes, theater, set to hit the cultural radar.  While pretty much all of it is of interest (a visit to Mario Batali’s just-opened Eataly is on my agenda, as is Martin Scorcese’s Boardwalk Empire to air on HBO, and about, oh, a dozen movies), today is all about the theater.  By all accounts, this fall’s harvest appears to be a good one.

Below is a sampling of what’s available.  To see New York Magazine’s complete list, “Theater: The Twenty”, click here.
