WELLESLEY — Commonwealth Shakespeare Company founding artistic director Steven Maler scrunches up his face in a parody of confusion. “People were like, ‘Babson and arts? Babson and CSC? What’s the connection? That doesn’t make any sense at all!’ ”
But Maler says Commonwealth’s new role as the resident theater company at Babson College makes perfect sense, even though — or perhaps because — Babson is a business school.
