Mark Zurlo and Tony Chin are running the Boston Marathon to raise money for the Heather Abbott Foundation, which raises money to help amputees thrive in their recovery and return to the life they love.

The Convert performs its last week in Cambridge

Quality theater is right around your corner in Central Square.

NeighborMedia is always interested in the arts and supporting voices not necessarily always heard in the city of Cambridge. February boasts wonderful performances, especially in theater arts. And while there have been numerous choices, and you cannot support them all, you still have time to catch a glimpse of quality local theater before this month is over. One such amazing theater presentation is The Convert a play by actor/playwright Danai Gurira.
