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.

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.

There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta, who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi and librettist Francesco Maria Piave have given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now Lyric Opera of Chicago brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage.

For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Whitney Houston, Greatest Love of All, its almost surreal accuracy. For Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them -- something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singer she honors in this dynamic concert at New York's Club Bonafide .

Hear vocalist Emilie Surtees perform a musical tribute to the Ladies of Rock & Roll. She takes the stage at New York's legendary Cafe Wha?, using her trained ear and blazing pipes to deliver faithful renditions of songs by Stevie Nicks, Heart and Tina Turner. A talented artist in her own right, Surtees not only replicates these divas' hit songs -- power note for power note -- she also taps into the soul that was poured into each original recording.
For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them -- something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors during The Music of Aretha Franklin & The Ladies of Soul at Club Bonafide in New York City.
Celebrate the dynamic and danceable music of the Buena Vista Social Club with this tribute to the Golden Age of Cuba, featuring a red-hot trio of musicians: guitarist-vocalist Francois Wiss, Damian Quinones on guitar and vocals, and Danny Valdez on percussion and vocals.

Directed by David Schulz, this play will transport you back to the post-Prohibition, jazz-ridden era of the 1940s. Genteel, bourgeoisie Blanche Dubois, after having lost her teaching post and the family’s plantation, takes a streetcar named desire to the debauched realms of the South. Settled in the heart of New Orleans’ famous French Quarter resides her sister, Stella Kowalski married to brutish husband, Stanley. Plagued with the guilt of her past, Blanche struggles to maintain her lily-white status as haunting remnants of the "not so long ago" resurface throughout the play whilst she fights against the demise of her appearance and facade.

Landmark Musical Theatre's re-imagined revival of Evita remains totally faithful to the words and music of the Tony-winning Broadway musical, while giving it a fresh and unusual setting. An Argentine guerrilla theatrical group gathers in a dusty Buenos Aires tango bar, exactly 20 years after the death of their patron, Eva Duarte Peron, to celebrate her life by reenacting it for you, the invited audience. Her story unfolds, from her beginnings as a poor teenager to her success as a radio/film star to becoming the most powerful woman in Latin America as the wife of Argentine President Juan Peron, before her untimely death at the age of 33. This more intimate version of the show at The Shelton's off-Broadway-like Main Stage in San Francisco, with seating for just 72, puts you close to the action and offers you an unprecedented opportunity to connect with each character in this masterpiece of musical theater. The classic score features some of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's biggest hits, including "On This Night of A Thousand Stars," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and of course, the signature song of the show, "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," all performed, as always at Landmark, with live music.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of King Lear received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this "nuanced and powerful" (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. NTLive brings the production from London to the big screen at the SJSU Hammer Theatre Center in San Jose.
