PLAYOur Town (Huntington Theatre Company, Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont St., Boston, extended through Jan. 26). David Cromer's staging of Thornton Wilder's masterpiece, which ran off Broadway for more than 600 performance, is now being remounted in Boston. It's the greatest revival of a classic play that I've seen in my entire theatergoing life, a re-creative landmark that at once arrestingly original and fundamentally faithful in its approach to the author's well-loved text. Don't listen if anybody tries to tell you about the surprise ending--and once you've seen the show, don't tell anybody what happens (TT).
