Boasting two of opera's all-time favorite arias ("Questa o quella" and "La donna è mobile"), Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto also spotlights one of opera's most complex title characters. This tragic story of the curse laid upon the hunchbacked jester, his daughter Gilda and the lecherous duke he serves is based on a play by Victor Hugo. Metropolitan Opera's renowned singers and the iconic Opera House in New York offer a new twist on the classic, setting it in Las Vegas in 1960, a time and place with surprising parallels to the decadence of the original Renaissance setting.

A lot of stand-up comedians these days are all about self-deprecation and low-key personas -- Chris Porter isn't one of them. Best known as a finalist in season four of Last Comic Standing, Porter owns the stage with a kind of righteous sarcasm that comes off like a refreshing throwback to stand-up's golden age while still maintaining his own unique personality. Whether he's railing against the dishonesty of makeup or defending the honesty of Taco Bell, Porter calls it like he sees it, with a manic energy and a gift for language. He's had his own Comedy Central special and appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the Late Show with David Letterman. Catch Porter when he hits the stage of Denver Improv.

Some plays can be summed up in an image, others a phrase, but only one masterpiece can be summarized with a scream: "Stelllaaa!!!" That classic, of course, is none other than Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister, Stella, and Stella's husband, Stanley. Fragile Blanche and brutish, temperamental Stanley immediately clash, and tensions further escalate when the two are left alone together. Theatre Buford brings one of the most powerful plays of the 20th century to the stage of the Sylvia Beard Theatre.

Stoned Soul Picnic is a celebration of the art and soul of the late, great singer-songwriter, and 2013 Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Laura Nyro. Lead vocalist Diane Garisto toured and recorded with Ms. Nyro in the mid-90's as a member of her celebrated Harmony Group. Diane and friends have put together a live show dedicated to the memory of this musical icon. Along with some of New York City's best players and singers, Stoned Soul Picnic features faithful arrangements from all of Nyro's most popular recordings such as Eli and the 13th Confession, New York Tendaberry, Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, and Gonna Take a Miracle. DIANE GARISTO began her performing career at the age of ten singing "Yabba-dabba-doo!" in a Flintstone's Vitamins jingle. From that auspicious beginning she has forged a career that has taken her in the studio and around the world, working with such industry notables as Carly Simon, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Laurie Anderson, and Grace Jones. She toured extensively with Steely Dan and had the good fortune to sing on Paul Simon's award-winning "Graceland" and Billy Joel's evocative "River of Dreams." In a richly varied career she has lent her voice to many commercials and movie soundtracks, and performed on television. But of all of her professional collaborations, none has had greater personal resonance than her connection with Laura Nyro, an idol of Diane's since her girlhood. As a member of Nyro's Harmony Group, Diane toured the US and Japan, participated in her celebrated Christmas Eve concerts at the Bottom Line, and recorded two live albums. Since Nyro's passing, Diane has co-produced and performed in the memorial concert at New York's Beacon Theater, sharing the stage with Patti LaBelle, Rickie Lee Jones, and other luminaries, and at the request of Nyro's estate was the guest soloist when she was inducted into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame. Diane considers it an honor to be a small part in helping keep Laura Nyro's extraordinary legacy alive.

Ross Mathews' bubbly charm and charisma made him a fan favorite on RuPaul's Drag Race. Since then, his fame has only grown, hosting the 2018 Miss America Pageant and receiving the incredible honor of being named America's Favorite Celebrity on Celebrity Big Brother. Now, Mathews is leaving the small screen behind to host the Dragtastic Bubbly Brunch at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles. As Mathews himself describes it, "I make a living judging drag queens, and now I want to give back by putting them to work, using champagne to lure in my favorite queens." But the fierce and fabulous queens hitting the stage -- many of whom are veterans of RuPaul's Drag Race -- aren't the only ones sipping champagne: Every guest gets a mimosa the second they walk in the door, along with the chance to compete against other guests for another free cocktail with the "lip sync for a drink" activity, based on RuPaul's "lip sync for your life" challenge.

Young, tattooed and undeniably hip, Cindy Kaza is about as far from the wrinkled, gypsy-fortuneteller stereotype as you can get. But the differences aren't only cosmetic. Unlike other so-called psychics who channel tantalizing but vague messages from beyond, Kaza "brings through" extremely specific evidence like names, personality traits and favorite phrases of those now on the other side. Trained at the famed Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in England, Kaza is not only clairvoyant (clear seeing) but clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling). All three unique gifts will be on display in a moving and thrilling presentation at Tommy T's Comedy Comedy Club in Rancho Cordova.

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard … and the radio just couldn’t get enough of.

The Mountaintop is a fictional retelling of how Martin Luther King Jr. spent his last night on earth, before his tragic assassination. After delivering his famous “I’ve been to the mountaintop speech” on behalf of the sanitation workers in Memphis, Martin goes to the Lorraine Motel to rest before another long day of campaigning. His world is spun on its axis when he meets Camae, a beautiful maid, who delivers his room service. At first, they only exchange flirtatious remarks, but soon they start a deep dialogue about Martin’s hopes and fears, and the two develop a true understanding. When Camae reveals that she is an angel that has come to prepare him for the soon-to-be-coming afterlife, Martin must confront his fears and face his own mortality. The Mountaintop shows a different side of Martin Luther King: a man who is tired and flawed yet, despite everything, an inspiration. Catch this powerful show at Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square.

This Tony Award-nominated show is an intoxicating musical fable filled with humor, heart and the extraordinary music of three-time Grammy Award winner Keb’Mo’. In a small Alabama town, a mysterious blues guitar-playing stranger named Marvell Thunder arrives at the door of the Dupree family and brings a challenge for the offspring of late Jaguar Dupree, the only man who ever outplayed him in a "cutting contest." Thunder offers Glory Dupree, Jaguar’s blind daughter, a Faustian bargain: if he wins the contest he gets Jaguar’s guitar, and if she wins she gets her sight back. In 2013, Thunder Knocking on the Door brought the house down at every performance. Creative Cauldron couldn’t resist the urge to turn the cauldron into a “juke joint” once again and bring this crowd-pleasing musical back to life for its 10th anniversary.

If millions of people hadn't already seen it on YouTube, nobody would believe Christina Bianco's cover of "Let it Go." Indeed, it's hard to believe one performer could impersonate Idina Menzel, not to mention Bernadette Peters, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion, Kristin Chenoweth, Adele, Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Kelly Clarkson and Liza Minnelli, without dropping a note or breaking character. But Bianco can, as she proved on Ellen when she brought the studio audience to their feet with an equally rousing (and varied) rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Now, Bianco, two-time Drama Desk Award nominee with an incredible voice all her own, takes center stage at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda with Jack Everly conducting the BSO SuperPops.
Based on the seminal 1980 hit movie, 9 to 5 remains relevant today with its message of empowering women in the workplace.

In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy — giving their boss the boot. While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Catch 9 to 5 on the stage of the Curtis Theatre at the Brea Civic & Cultural Center.

Both critically acclaimed and a huge hit on Broadway, the '08 rock musical Next to Normal took home three Tonys -- and a rare Pulitzer Prize -- for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a suburban family struggling with the mother's worsening bipolar disorder. With original songs by Tom Kitt (American Idiot), the play packs an emotional punch, delving into its complex subject matter with honesty and grace. The New York Times called it "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical." See Arizona Regional Theatre's production at the Phoenix Center for the Arts.
Larger-than-life New York politicians are all the rage now, so this 42nd Street Moon production of one of the most acclaimed bio-musicals in Broadway history is sure to be both wildly entertaining and thought-provoking. The mayor of New York City from 1934 to 1945, Fiorello H. La Guardia was a charismatic publicity hound considered by many to be one of the greatest mayors in American history (in fact, there's a good chance you've flown into his namesake airport if you've visited NYC). He successfully rose from a crusading lawyer to Congress to running the Big Apple, fighting the corrupt forces of Tammany Hall while never losing his upbeat spirit or pledge to help those less fortunate. Now, the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical celebrating his life fills the Gateway Theatre in San Francisco with exuberant singing and dancing to the tunes of Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick -- famous for their collaboration on Fiddler on the Roof.

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. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head over to Spider House for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

It's 1985, and rock star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother's basement, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.

Returning to Chicago's Windy City Playhouse to create this experience is the duo behind the uniquely intimate setup of 2017's Becky Shaw: Director Scott Weinstein and Scenic Designer Jeffrey D. Kmiec.
