THE SOURCE
North Adams, 8 p.m.
In July 2013, Private Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison after publishing the largest set of classified documents ever leaked to the public. The conviction provoked a maelstrom of media coverage, ranging from portraits of Manning’s personal life to new dialogues about military abuses. In producer Beth Morrison’s latest work-in-progress, Ted Hearn and director Daniel Fish dive headfirst into this digital storm with an assemblage of Twitter feeds, chat transcripts, and court testimony, wound together in an arresting music-theater production.
