Theater: Here's one play that certainly sounds like it wouldn't work as children's theater: "No Child," a comedy with Reenah L. Golden playing the administrators, teachers, janitors, students, and parents at a high school, continues at the Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd.) through Sunday, April 21.
