9 Plays and Musicals to Go to in N.Y.C. This Weekend

Our guide to plays and musicals coming to New York stages and a few last-chance picks of shows that are about to close. Our reviews of open shows are at nytimes.com/reviews/theater.

‘THE CONVENT’ at A.R.T./New York Theaters (previews start on Jan. 16; opens on Jan. 24). A girls’ trip with monastic overtones, Jessica Dickey’s new play goes on retreat with a group of women trying to live like medieval nuns (though likely practicing better personal hygiene). Daniel Talbott directs the all-female cast, which includes Lisa Ramirez and Samantha Soule, as they recede from modernity.

‘GOD SAID THIS’ at the Cherry Lane Theater (previews start on Jan. 16; opens on Jan. 29). A companion play to Leah Nanako Winkler’s “Kentucky,” this Primary Stages piece finds a New Yorker, Hiro, returning to her old Kentucky home, braving her newly sober father, her born-again sister and her ailing mother. Morgan Gould directs, with Satomi Blair, Ako and Jay Patterson revisiting their roles.
