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.

Long before Jerry Lee Lewis was shaking nerves and rattling brains on the piano, Frédéric Chopin was rocking the ivories. And while he probably never played with his elbows, Chopin wasn't above showing off his virtuosic talents. Which is why he composed his first Piano Concerto. Now, Sergio Tiempo will take the stage at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to wow the audience with his take on Chopin's sparkling cascade of notes. Then, conductor Ludovic Morlot will bring his energetic style to the symphony that landed Prokofiev on the cover of Time magazine. Composed at the tail end of WWII, the Fifth Symphony celebrates the human spirit, even as its climactic "wrong notes" ironically pay tribute to our foibles. Don't miss this enchanting night of music under the stars.

A pair of true pop troubadours -- singer-songwriters Phillip Phillips and Gavin DeGraw -- team up for a summer concert under the stars at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa. After winning the 11th season of Fox's American Idol, Phillips leveraged his world-weary vocal style, seasoned jam-oriented rock sensibility and laid-back stage presence with the platinum-selling debut album The World From The Side of the Moon and mega-hit tracks like "Home" and "Gone, Gone, Gone." His latest single, "Miles," comes off the disc Collateral. DeGraw got his big break when his song "I Don't Want To Be," off his debut album Chariot, became the theme song for the hit CW show One Tree Hill. The multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated artist has since released several more rock-soul albums, spawning hits like "Not Over You," "In Love With A Girl," "We Both Know" and "She Sets The City On Fire." This show takes place after the OC Fair has closed for 2018. But if you bring your ticket to the fairgrounds anytime while it's still open -- 07/13/18 through 08/12/18 (closed Mondays and Tuesdays) -- you will receive free admission for one day.

Plus, there's a lot of other musicians in the city who feel the same way, who play this music and have their own take on keeping tradition alive. With this show, my friends and I want to spotlight New Orleans and bring joy, fun, and partying to the nation, because that's what New Orleans creates. That's what our music is about."

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.

An original translation of Federico Garcia Lorca's 1930 puppet show, El Retablillo de Don Cristóbal, infuses themes of domestic violence and gender inequality within a corrupt political environment. Coming to DC's Dance Loft on 14, Pointless Theatre Company's adaptation reflects on the unique linguistic layers of being hispanic and bilingual in the U.S. today. Written specifically as a Punch and Judy-style show, this production brings to life the centuries old, brutally comedic style of performance that thrives on crude puppet violence.
