1776 is mostly Philadelphia, though one of the devices is the correspondence dialogue of John and Abigail Adams, and she was home in MA for most of it, so yeah sort'a could stretch it to say "set in MA"

Was lucky enough to see the "Moby Dick" musical during its brief run at the A.R.T. this winter. I really hope it has a life beyond Cambridge. Even as a work-in-progress it was unique, ambitious, and unforgettable.

No No Nanette didn't do well until the revival, but The Harry Frazee Follies ran for years.

More seriously - didn't somebody write a play about Honey Fitz?

From "Elegies" (which isn't really set anywhere and is technically a "song cycle" not a musical) there is a song called "14 Dwight Ave., Natick, Massachusetts."

Boston and Providence based adaptation of some obscure old play.

Staged by Acme Theatr Company in 1996.
