The Davis Shakespeare Ensemble opened its 2017 season with two comedies that weren’t written by the Bard. First is the musical Wonderful Town, which follows two Ohio sisters, one an actress and the other a writer, who set out to conquer New York City. If you prefer swashbuckling to singing but still want a laugh, The Three Musketeers is chock-full of humor and sword fights. Both plays are running through August 6. The festival season runs till October. 203 E. 14th Street, www.shakespearedavis.org.
