He may be king, but unlike his older brother Richard the Lionheart, John has no stirring nickname, and everyone from the Pope to his own court seems to think his crown is up for grabs. Taking his audience back to the time of the Magna Carta, Shakespeare slyly commented on the politics of his own day. Now, director Aaron Posner treats you to a toxic brew of ambition and indecision in this rarely staged but timely history. The medieval court is transported to the D.C. stage as King John unfolds at Folger Theatre.

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.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn.

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.

This forceful drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. Arthur Miller's 1953 Tony Award-winning play focuses on a farmer, his wife and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. Salem, Massachusetts, is ablaze with accusations of witchcraft after a group of girls are found dancing in the woods. This spark of vengeance ignites a raging fire of bigotry and paranoia which threatens to consume the entire community. The Crucible examines the dangers that result when people believe that they possess the absolute truth. Don't miss San Diego Junior Theatre's production at Casa del Prado Theatre.

Leonard Bernstein's MASS, A Theatre Piece for Singers, Players and Dancers, was first performed at the opening of the Kennedy Center and remains one of the composer's most cherished works. This production will be fully staged at the ASU Gammage auditorium in Tempe, featuring guest artist Jubilant Sykes alongside the ASU Symphony Orchestra, Choral and Music Theatre and Opera programs, the ASU School of Film, Dance and Theatre and the Phoenix Boys' Choir. Written in the tumultuous times of the early 1970s, when the country was polarized and in a crisis of communication, Mass poses more questions than it answers. This production will center on elements of Bernstein's message that are still relevant today, with a focus on empathy and hope. Expertly performed by students throughout the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, it is also a piece that celebrates the bridging of the many disciplines that Bernstein represented and the boundaries he broke as an artist.

Created and choreographed by famed dancer and producer Jennifer Romas (Amercia's Got Talent), Sexxy pulsates with a passion that runs through vignettes featuring singing, dancing and circus arts. Even with their clothes on, the talents of the show's remarkable cast are obvious ... and astonishing. Experience them yourself at Westgate Casino's Cabaret.

In Members Only, the long-awaited sequel to the groundbreaking Blade to the Heat, 20 years have passed. It's 1982, in New York City: the golden age of boxing, the dying gasp of disco and the flowering of identity politics. Pedro Quinn is well past 40 and still fighting, not only for championships but for the right to be himself, on his own terms. He even has a protege, a young female boxer who reminds him of his own youthful fights in and out of the ring. But when a detached retina threatens to end the only life he knows, and when old frenemies Vinal and Sarita want to make a movie about the champion he killed in the ring 20 years ago, Quinn can no longer hide from the ghosts of his past. Nor can he protect those he loves from the specter of hatred, much less the oncoming onslaught of what will soon be named the AIDS virus. He can hide in plain sight no more, and his biggest fight is yet to come. A play about an America of color, forging racial and sexual identities to the pulsating beat of Willie Colon and Blondie, on the cusp of discovery, at the edge of a plague -- Members Only can be seen at the Los Angeles Theatre Center.

The atom bomb's creation during WWII was an unprecedented collaboration of minds. America's brightest academics. Brilliant refugee scientists fleeing the terrors of Europe. Government and military leaders. An army of construction and factory workers with no idea what they were working on. A tossed salad of humanity, united and driven by urgent necessity. Battling the clock, bureaucracy and each other to beat Hitler to the weapon that would decide the war. Only once Germany had surrendered did focus shift to Japanese cities. By then the project had grown too big to stop. But one man did try to stop it. A man since buried by history, but without whose intellect and determination the weapon that could end us might never have had its start. His name is Leo Szilard. His is the story of the bomb we only thought we knew. See Atomic in Denver at the Bug Theatre.

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.

For a long time, the far right has hid in the shadows. Now, it no longer needs to. In Winter Solstice, five people gather on Christmas Eve in a bourgeois, intellectual household. Albert, a writer, is engaged in a ferocious spat with his wife Bettina, a film-maker, over the arrival of her mother, Corinna. But it is Corinna who sparks the dramatic crisis by inviting a man she met on the train, Rudolph, to stay with the family. Rudolph is urbane, civilized, and polite -- the essence of cosmopolitan charm. He entertains everyone by playing Chopin and Bach on the piano, but when he reveals that he is a doctor with Paraguayan connections, we realize that he is the silken embodiment of a Nazi past that Germany has thought long-buried. The West Coast premiere of this transfixing new work from acclaimed German playwright Roland Schimmelpfennig powerfully demonstrates the unnerving logic of the new right and the seeming impotence of liberalism to combat it. Bitterly comic, naturalistic and surrealistic by turns, combining live cameras with onstage action, the play exerts the same hypnotic spell as its menacing visitor -- an insidiousness that makes him, in Schimmelpfennig’s eyes, a lethal threat.

Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. Madam Tallula presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private, secret poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available at any time during the evening. Of course, any true bordello needs a good cover; theirs is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances, and installations at each event. On the open patio, the troupe presents tarot readings, poetic souvenirs, live typewriter poetry, and occasional burlesque and musical performances. The El Cid tapas kitchen and bar will be open for dinner and drinks throughout.

ComedySportz, the ingenious improv show that pits two teams of quick-witted performers against each other in a balls-to-the-wall battle for comedy supremacy, has been around for 30 years -- which is long enough for it to have its own abbreviation (CSz) and tons of famous alumni, including Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Let's Make A Deal) and Jason Sudeikis (SNL, Horrible Bosses). Now coming to the Avenue Theater in the Mile-High City, it works like this -- you and your fellow audience members provide suggestions to each squad, who throw down by coming up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot. Each show includes up to a dozen different improv games, out of a list of more than 100. A referee oversees the action, calling fouls (groan-worthy puns'll get you a flag) and keeping score. Yep, there are points and everything -- but the power to bestow winners and losers is ultimately in your hands. It's no laughing matter, except for the fact that it definitely is.

The Wild West was full of larger-than-life characters: crack shots and gamblers, outlaws and stoic sheriffs. Annie Oakley could go toe-to-toe with any of them. Tough and outspoken, Annie could outshoot any man -- including Frank Butler, expert rifleman for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. When Bill asks Annie to join the show, the fellow sharpshooters quickly fall for each other -- until Annie becomes the star. This real-life legend of the Old West comes alive in the classic musical Annie Get Your Gun. Chock-full of timeless Irving Berlin tunes like "Anything You Can Do," "Doin' What Comes Natur'lly" and "There's No Business Like Show Business," this Broadway fave now comes to Jesters Dinner Theatre in Longmont in a fun production for the whole family.

The Secrets of My Skincare Routine is an immersive and multidisciplinary performance piece utilizing movement, projection, poetry and body remodeling with clay. Exploring the mind-body connection from a feminine perspective, the work specifically focuses on external and internal stimuli and the micro/macro awareness of the body. The performance has been devised within the collective for the past year, during which the artists held experimental workshops and discussions that explored themes of obsession, distortion and perception, disconnect, illusion and control. Beginning with a loose prompt, the team allowed the performance to come together without a structure or leader, trusting the collaborative process to result in a finished cohesive product. The Bastette Group is an inclusive and ever changing group of female artists, designers, directors, producers, cinematographers, choreographers and, most importantly, collaborators. The collective was started in 2017 and their first collaboration was a 10-part experimental music video series, Rigor Samsa, which is available to view online. Their sophomore project was a five continuous performance piece, A Body. Again that premiered in March, 2018. The Bastette Group was founded by Megan Spatz, with the goal to provide opportunity for creative women to explore themes, topics, techniques of their craft that could be focused around a shared creative goal. All femme identifying persons are welcome collaborators, and are encouraged to reach out.
