The Taming of the Shrew With Drunken Cast Member

Buy Tickets $15 $25

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one completely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head down to The Rockwell near Boston for The Taming of the Shrew, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical

Buy Tickets $49 - $99 $49 - $119

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. It's no surprise that Beautiful -- The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. See this unforgettable show at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.

Food is more than just a way to stave off hunger -- it's a cultural experience. Curious foods from exotic cultures have always fascinated us, and sharing those foods with others is the best way to cross those cultural boundaries. But different cultures in different places have different views of what's tasty and what's gross, what's edible and what's inedible. The Disgusting Food Museum invites visitors to consider those distinctions and challenge their own dietary preferences while viewing, smelling and tasting some unique foods from around the world, including casu marzu (maggot-infested cheese from Sardinia), hákarl (well-aged Icelandic shark) and surströmming (Swedish fermented herring). Do you dare smell the world’s stinkiest cheese? Or taste sweets made with metal cleansing chemicals? Test your intestinal fortitude at this tribute to culinary curiosities at A+D Museum in Los Angeles.

You and your children will love Los Angeles Children's Theater's live musical re-creation of Shel Silverstein's touching and tender storybook parable The Giving Tree. The classic children's book is about the simple gifts nature offers each of us. Through a boy and a loving apple tree, Silverstein's story follows the seasons of life from young child to old age, from joyous youth to self-centered adolescence, from somber adulthood to bittersweet old age. Each stage of love, loss, heartache and heartbreak is expressed through words, gestures, dance and music that will delight people of all ages.

Buy Tickets $15 $35

The disco-fueled interactive dance party known as The Donkey Show, very loosely inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, puts you smack in the middle of the action in a funky Cambridge lounge setting. Featuring two full bars and a dance floor, OBERON's Diane Paulus-created wonderland was inspired by Studio 54 in its heyday, when celebrities and art icons would mix and mingle with kids from Queens, and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack would be shaking the speakers. While you -- and the rest of the audience -- drink, dance to disco classics or just check out the action, the motley crew of characters in this glammed-up, sex-fueled version of Shakespeare's play re-enact the hilariously chaotic tale of a magic elixir that wreaks havoc at the nightclub. But it's mostly just a cool boogie-filled bash.

This guy's been amazing in more movies and TV shows than you can count, and won a pair of Tony Awards for his skillful, searing performances in the classic American tragedies Death of a Salesman and Long Day's Journey Into Night. Now Brian Dennehy is reprising two of his most memorable and acclaimed stage roles in a powerful double bill. Dennehy first inhabits high-rolling gambler Erie, whose luck has turned with the death of his best friend Hughie. Next, Dennehy becomes Krapp, Beckett's self-absorbed leading man, who records a tape documenting his year each birthday. On his 69th, he gets caught up in listening to his archives and experiences a lifetime of regret. Dennehy won raves for his appearances in this pair of plays at the Goodman in Chicago, and now he's bringing the show to the intimate Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen in L.A.

Buy Tickets $15 $25

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the UK, and the cast is now bringing the good time to Boston. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to The Rockwell for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Join the Troubadour Theatre Company for this year's holiday extravaganza: The Year Without a Santana Claus. Santa’s gonna need a “Black Magic Woman,” because he’s real sick with a “Corazon Espinado.” Poor Santa feels like he has “No One to Depend On,” and to make matters worse, “This Boy’s Fire” is coming in at a fever of 102. It’s no wonder the ol’ guy can’t be “Everybody’s Everything.” One thing’s for certain, Santa’s in need of a serious vacay. Maybe he’ll vacation on Mars and attend an “Interplanetary Party.” Or maybe he’ll play it “Smooth” and lay low down south in Cabo. Will the Heatmeiser tell his brother the Snowmeiser to change his “Evil Ways?” Will Santa say “Hey, Mrs. Claus, ‘Why Don’t You and I’ get together and take a snowboarding lesson?” Will the Troubies come to the rescue and save Christmas? This holiday season, bring the familia to North Hollywood’s El Portal Theatre to party and laugh “Into the Night.”

Measure for Measure is Shakespeare’s story of impassable moral dilemmas, religious hypocrisy and he said/she said. ​Who will believe thee, Isabel? In decadent Vienna, Duke Vincentio turns over his power to his deputy Angelo, who immediately plots to rid the city of moral decay. Caught up in the sweep is young Claudio, who is sentenced to death for impregnating his fiancée. Claudio’s sister Isabella, a young nun, begs for her brother’s life. Angelo offers to stay the execution in exchange for sex, and warns that if she comes forward, no one would believe her .... If Shakespeare wrote it today, Measure for Measure would seem "ripped from the headlines." Catch this very modern tale at The New American Theatre.

The play manages to continually charm modern audiences, if only due to our inherent longing for a simpler, more innocent past. Most of Inge’s plays are a mixture of comedy and drama.

Winner of the Tony and the Olivier Awards for Best Musical, Crazy For You has wowed audiences on Broadway, the West End and around the world, reclaiming the Gershwin songs into the perfect book musical. The show-stopping production will be an intimate version of the large-scale musical featuring the original Tony-winning choreography of Susan Stroman, recreated by Bay Area Musicals' Founder & Artistic Director, Matthew McCoy, who will also direct. A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, Crazy For You tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner's daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows -- through cunning, razzmatazz and a hilarious case of mistaken identity -- to win Polly's heart and save the theater. Filled with memorable Gershwin tunes like "I Got Rhythm," "Naughty Baby," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "Embraceable You," "But Not for Me," "Nice Work if You Can Get It" and "Someone to Watch Over Me," this show can be enjoyed at San Francisco's Alcazar Theatre.

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last eight years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, this show enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two.

Chicago has long been known as a hotbed for creating comedy stars, and one of the main reasons for that is the iO Theater, one of the premier places in the world to catch improv comedy. Begun by Adam McKay (SNL, Anchorman), David Koechner (The Office, American Dad!) and Armando Diaz (founder of Magnet Theater in New York), The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience Movement & Hootenanny is iO's longest-running show and a Chicago comedy institution. In this two-act, long-form improv show, a monologist kicks things off by telling a few stories from his or her life, which some of the city's best improvisers then spin off into hilarious off-the-cuff scenes.

In the world of acoustic guitar, few musicians can match the virtuosity and showmanship of two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel, whose unique ten-fingered style led the legendary Chet Atkins to give him the coveted title of "Certified Guitar Player" -- an honor he gave to only four other guitarists. Emmanuel has created his own unique, electrifying style of percussive fingerstyle playing that led Atkins to call him "fearless." Drawing on everything from jazz to blues to bluegrass, he has collaborated with such guitar greats as Eric Clapton, Les Paul, Martin Taylor and Doc Watson. He's twice been named "Best Acoustic Guitarist" in Guitar Player magazine's readers' poll, was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia and has even been granted the title of Kentucky Colonel. For this concert at Saban Theatre, he'll be joined by fourteen-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas.

Pacific Opera Project's most iconic production returns due to popular demand. Puccini's masterpiece, La bohème, updated to current day Highland Park. In POP’s production of La bohème: AKA “The Hipsters,” an 1830s Parisian garret becomes a present day Los Angeles loft apartment during a particularly cold SoCal winter. LA's housing crisis comes to life on stage as the artist, poet, philosopher, musician, and seamstress become a graphic designer, screenplay writer, English major, indie-rocker, and fashion designer dealing with the timeless issues of life, love, jealousy, and overdue bills. This production is the inspiration behind POP’s signature logo, “Hipster Puccini.” This will be the fourth incarnation of POP's trademark production. The opera is sung in Italian with projected “cleverly ironic” English supertitles.

From scat to breathy ballads, "First Lady of Song" Billie Holiday could do it all, while Etta James is considered one of the greatest blues singers who ever lived. And Nina Simone lit the world on fire with a vibrato that stirred souls and moved mountains. Hear the Holy Trinity's greatest hits as Surtees interprets them with conviction at Club Bonafide in New York.

Jazz-influenced French indie singer/songwriter Violette comes to Club Bonafide in New York City. Born in Paris and raised in a small village on an island off the French Atlantic Coast, and now making her home in Brooklyn, Violette has clearly been influenced by such French luminaries as Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, but Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson have also had a hand in the development of her sophisticated pop sound. Her 2014 album, Falling Strong, showcases a collection of originals that, although rooted in jazz, reflect the young artist's eclectic range of influences, from pop to rock and R&B. Upbeat and sassy, sensual and intimate, her soulful voice immerses you in emotion. See her live at Club Bonafide in New York City.

You heard right, this interactive comedy turns the audience into Sister's class as she rewards you, the "students," for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes.
