The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Clueless

Buy Tickets COMP - $49 $29 - $59

It's back, but better than ever! It helped usher totally awesome terms like "Whatever" and "As if" into the mainstream, but those gems of the lexicon are only the beginning of what the endlessly quotable film Clueless has to offer. Now the classic cult comedy starring Alicia Silverstone is getting an unauthorized musical adaptation at beloved Los Feliz dinner theater destination Rockwell. Here's the cool part. It features an all-new script, new cast and a new director. Starring some of Los Angeles' finest belters of show tunes, it's a marvelously campy onstage send-up to one of the most marvelously campy onscreen send-ups ever made.

School of Rock: Hit Film Turned Musical

Buy Tickets $39 - $69 $69 - $89

Still head-banging on Broadway, School of Rock is ready to shred at Hollywood Pantages. This New York Times Critics' Pick was adapted from the 2003 film that launched Jack Black as a full-blown star, and just happens to feature 14 new songs from the King of the Musical, none other than Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. All the original tunes from the film are included too, and Entertainment Weekly called this stage version "an inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz." The show follows Dewey Finn, who was kicked out of his band and is struggling to make ends meet when he finds himself in the most unlikely of jobs -- teaching at a prestigious prep school. When he discovers his students' talent for classical music, he decides to steer them over to rock 'n' roll, turning this class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, mind-blowing, kick-ass band. Awesomeness ensues. Get "way hardcore" and snap up your tickets to this rocking musical.

"Personal. Unexpected. Timely." With the 40th anniversary of the Iran hostage crisis coming up next year and our president's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, it seems like a good time to tell the story of an ordinary family that made an enormous geo-political situation very, very personal. Worlds collide in this human drama about the backlash one family must endure when it has the courage to make the political very, very personal. Based on true events, Hostage is the story of a mother dealing with the aftermath of traveling to Tehran to gain the release of her son, a marine held captive during the Iran hostage crisis. Playing at the Skylight Theatre in Los Angeles, Hostage was written by the award-winning Michelle Kholos Brooks and is directed by Elina de Santos.

Inspired by the novel and the 1932 Academy Award-winning movie of the same name, which starred Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and John and Lionel Barrymore, the musical Grand Hotel is set at the tail-end of the Roaring Twenties. With the world between wars and the stock market booming, a crew of eccentric characters meets at the Grand Hotel: the fading ballerina, the charming but destitute Baron, the fatally ill bookkeeper, the honest businessman gone bad, the typist dreaming of Hollywood success and the doctor who foreshadows the coming Depression. The musical, which opened on Broadway in 1990 and won five Tony awards and five Drama Desk Awards, is now playing at Chicago's Theater Wit. Issues of life and death, financial ruin, love and murder all converge as people come and go through the lobby of the Grand Hotel.

Born to a former slave who became the first African-American Episcopal bishop, the Delany sisters went on to be pioneers in the fight for civil rights, witnessing a century of change from the front lines.

The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history has epics of its own. Father Comes Home From the Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) at San Francisco's A.C.T. follows the slave, Hero, who agrees to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for his freedom, traveling from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From the Wars trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.

Danai Gurira's Family Comedy Familiar

Buy Tickets $15 - $33 $30 - $72

In wintry Minnesota, the Chinyaramwira family is getting ready for the marriage of their eldest daughter. But when the bride wants to observe a traditional Zimbabwean custom for her wedding, deep-seated tensions arise. Adding fuel to the flames, unexpected family guests turn up revealing uninvited secrets. Written by Tony-nominated writer Danai Gurira (Eclipsed), Familiar focuses on the messy, hilarious, spirited dynamic of a modern first-generation Zimbabwean American family, revealing the layers of complexities rooted in the search for a sense of belonging. This year alone, Gurira's work as an actress has shone brightly on the small screen (The Walking Dead) and in Hollywood (Black Panther). Now Seattle Rep - Bagley Wright Theatre shines a spotlight on her skill as a playwright with this fiercely funny play.

Boeing Boeing: Hit Comedy Takes Off in Santa Monica

Buy Tickets $11.50 $23

In this sexy French farce, it's the 1960s and Parisian womanizer Bernard is enjoying the good life with his three fiancées -- all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent (but never overlapping) layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful housekeeper, who nimbly switches out photos and favorite foods in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. All is going great, until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself juggling all three women at once. Add Bernard's friend -- who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight -- to the mix, and the whole plan is poised to fall apart. This slapstick comedy from French playwright Marc Camoletti won a Tony on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Now you can laugh along with all the saucy fun at this production of Boeing Boeing at Santa Monica's Morgan-Wixson Theatre.

Creepy clowns were It this year in terms of pop culture, and there's none creepier, or more tragic, than Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto. The revenge-filled jester at the center of Victor Hugo's drama encourages the lecherous duke he serves to seduce a young woman, resulting in a curse and disaster for Rigoletto's own beautiful daughter. This moving masterpiece boasts the famous tune "La donna è mobile," an instant hit that was sung throughout the streets and canals of Venice almost immediately after the opera's 1851 premiere. Sharing the title role in this sumptuously staged LA Opera production at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion are Italian baritones Leo Nucci and Ambrogio Maestri.

Widely regarded as the most significant play of the 20th century, Waiting for Godot is something every theater lover should see at least once. What playwright Samuel Beckett built with this work was a monument -- not of stones, but of words -- to the mysteries of existence, and his towering achievement moves and unsettles audiences like no other play. On a lonely road beneath a barren tree, two vagabonds wait for a man named Mr. Godot.

Rock of Ages: The '80s Party Hit Musical

Buy Tickets $16 $32

She was just a small-town girl living in a lonely world ... until she landed on the Sunset Strip in 1987 and met a wannabe rocker from Detroit. In the Tony-nominated jukebox musical Rock of Ages, these two characters fall in love while pursuing their dreams and get caught up in a fight to save the Strip from big developers. Across a raucous mix of eyebrow-scorching tunes from Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and so many more, they'll learn that on the Strip, the dreams you have when you arrive are not always the dreams you have when you leave -- but the Strip will always rock. Relive the '80s with classic hits like "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again" and, of course, "Don't Stop Believing," when Rock of Ages rattles the walls of the Nesbitt/Elliott Playhouse at Mesa Arts Center.

Hand to God: Tony-Nominated Demonic Puppet Comedy

Buy Tickets COMP - $17 $34

One of Broadway's biggest new comedic hits comes to town as Hand to God arrives at Seattle's Bathhouse Theater. This devilishly funny tale centers around the young students of a Texas Christian Puppet Ministry. Taught to obey the Bible and evade "Satan's hand," things take a darkly comic turn when one devout young man's puppet takes on a shocking personality that no one could have expected. His demented puppet, Tyrone, soon throws all his relationships out of whack, showing that idle hands truly are the Devil's playthings. Described by The New Yorker as "Sesame Street meets The Exorcist," this hilariously twisted sock puppet comedy is one you won't forget.

Buy Tickets $17.50 - $22.50 $35 - $45

1984 is the acclaimed stage version of George Orwell's novel of a dystopian vision of the future. This chilling play shows us a world where individualism is crushed, and challenging authority leads to torture, prison and even death. 1984 tells the story of Winston, a small cog in the giant machine state of Oceania. He's forced to confess his dangerous thought crimes before an unseen inquisitor and jury, which condemn him to unspeakable punishment. Make like Big Brother and watch this show at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC.

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.

Walk On By is an epic, romantic, dramatic comedy set in the swingin' '60s of London, featuring the songs of Burt Bacharach and performed by the Silverlake Children's Theatre Group. London in the '60s was the center of one of the most colorful and stylized moments in world history.

Against this vibrant backdrop, Walk On By weaves various love stories that take place on New Year's Eve, 1967, culminating in the city's spectacular celebration in Trafalgar Square. Using the template of the movie Love, Actually, multiple storylines -- happy, sad and bittersweet -- will overlap and intersect in the space of this one special day.

Avenue Q: Tony-Winning Naughty Puppet Musical

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

This spring, CMT Mainstage presents the winner of the 2004 Tony Triple Crown (Best Score, Best Book, Best Musical): the laugh-out-loud Avenue Q! Bright-eyed college grad Princeton arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account. All he can afford is a shabby apartment in the "outer-outer boroughs." Still, the neighbors seem nice: girl-next-door Kate, Rod the Republican, internet entrepreneur Trekkie, Gary Coleman the superintendent and the other denizens of Avenue Q struggle -- hilariously -- to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Assured for years by parents and children's television programs that they "could do anything," to their surprise and dismay Princeton and his friends are now discovering that their real-world options are rather more limited. A coming-of-age parable, Avenue Q recognizes and sharply satirizes the issues and anxieties of young adulthood -- through puppets, of course, animated by unconcealed actors. Ironic humor, biting sarcasm and clever lyrics will resonate with anyone who's ever tried to find an apartment, land a job, get a date -- or just grow up.

With this theatrical adaptation, the novel about oppression, freedom and justice bursts with all new life on stage. Bigger Thomas wants more out of life, suffocated as he is by the rat-infested world of poverty and prejudice. His aspirations in 1930s Chicago are sidetracked when he makes a fateful decision while working for a well-to-do white family. Don't miss this insightful, urgent adaptation by Nambi E. Kelley at Glendale's Antaeus Theatre Company.

French Farce The Metromaniacs

Buy Tickets $35 $75

It's springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, the poetry craze, is all the rage. Damis, a young, would-be poet with a serious case of verse mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton. She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman with a touch of the mania himself who also just so happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy "translaptation" of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar, Venus in Fur, All in the Timing).

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.

Terrance McNally's Dramedy Love! Valour! Compassion!

Buy Tickets $15 $30

At a beautiful country farmhouse during the summer of 1995, eight gay men come together over three holiday weekends -- Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Labor Day. They share romance, anger, laughter and difficult truths. Terrence McNally's Love! Valour! Compassion! unfolds with great humor as the men address revealing questions of gay identity, self-esteem, the threat of AIDS and male love. Zeitgeist Stage Company brings the Tony-winning play to Boston Center for the Arts, with its themes of love, friendship, fear, pride and acceptance that are just as poignant and relevant today. Don't miss the show about which The New York Times wrote: "It's utterly contemporary; its one-liners are sometimes hysterical and are slammed home with style; it has genuine pathos that's only slightly tinged with sentimentality."

Posner & Teller Conjure Up a Bold New Macbeth

Buy Tickets $35 - $44 $46 - $58

Shakespeare was a magician with words, but until the acclaimed playwright-director Aaron Posner teamed up with the famed magician Teller (of Penn & Teller) to bring the enchanted world of The Tempest to life in 2015, an actual magician had probably never staged Shakespeare before. Now this dynamic creative duo reteams to bring Shakespeare's haunting psychological thriller Macbeth to the stage of The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, "the greatest new theater in the world" (Chicago Tribune). Chock-full of witches, prophecy, madness and murderous ambition, this supernatural tragedy comes to bold new life starring Helen Hayes Award winner Ian Merrill Peakes and Chaon Cross.

Anne Frank's Powerful True-Life Story

Buy Tickets $20 - $34 $40 - $68

One of the most unforgettable stories of the 20th century, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic in war-torn Amsterdam. Anne's daily existence -- her fears, her hopes, her laughter, her grief and her family's desperate attempt to preserve humanity in an inhumane world -- drive this transcendently powerful true-life tale. Incorporating newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, to create an impassioned story of the lives of Jews persecuted under Nazi rule, it is a story that continually lingers in our minds throughout the generations because of its optimism and intrinsic truth. Frank's timeless story encapsulates the idea that no matter how dire the circumstances, faith in the good of people is what keeps the world in balance ... even when all seems lost. Relive her harrowing story when Arizona Theatre Company's adaptation comes to the Herberger Theater Center's Center Stage.

From legendary playwright August Wilson, Fences is the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won him critical acclaim, including the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize. The story centers on Troy Maxson -- a strong man, a hard man. He's had to be in order to survive life in an America where to be proud and black is to face pressures that could crush a man's body and soul. But the 1950s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960s, a spirit that is changing the world that has made Troy Maxson a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less. Witness the power of this dramatic play at Marietta's New Theatre in the Square.

Winner of the Lawrence Olivier, Tony and Drama Desk awards, Shrek the Musical starts off as many fairy tales do: "Once upon a time ..." This story is definitely not your typical fairy tale, though! After accepting he will live alone, apart from the "Big Bright Beautiful World" outside, Shrek's swamp is invaded by fairy tale misfits thanks to a new decree by a short-tempered lord. Shrek sets off on a quest, hoping to return to the peace and quiet he used to enjoy. But with a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess to contend with, will Shrek really get what he wants? And is living all alone in a swamp really what he wants? This professional production of Shrek the Musical from Area Stage Company in Coral Gables has reimagined the show as a six-actor thespian troupe at a modern-day Renaissance faire portraying all roles and accompanying themselves on instruments.

The martyred heroine of France fought and defeated the besieging English at Orleans, was captured and taken prisoner in Burgundy, and put on trial and burned at the stake -- all by the age of 19. Depicted as neither witch, saint nor madwoman in George Bernard Shaw's compelling story, Joan of Arc is but an illiterate farm girl whose focus on the individual rocks the church and state. Led by director Eric Tucker, four actors perform over 25 roles in Bedlam's riveting, stripped-down production of Saint Joan at Folger Theatre in Washington, DC.

As you sail down the Schuylkill River, enjoying a drink from the cash bar or your own picnic you brought on board, you can take in sights like Grey's Ferry Crescent, the Navy Yard, Penn's Landing and more. Learn about William Penn's original City of Brotherly Love, the growth of the city during the industrial age and its decline in the 1950s, as well as the future of Philadelphia's waterfronts in this lightly narrated tour. But don't worry, this isn't a full-on history lecture, but rather a chance to kick back and get a glimpse at many of the sites that define the history of Philly.

The phone rings, the door chimes and in comes Company. Set firmly in -- and often about -- New York, Company follows five married, once-married or soon-to-be-married couples and their mutual friend, Bobby, a 35-year-old confirmed bachelor. His friends' various relationships are presented in a series of vignettes, primarily through Bobby's eyes. From his perspective, the committed relationships are less than ideal, but it's obvious to the audience that the characters are actually quite happy, despite their struggles. Eventually, Bobby is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood. This sophisticated classic remains as tart and incisive as ever when it comes to modern relationships, and Sondheim's dazzling score, which includes favorites like "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive," makes it all the more enjoyable. Be sure to catch it when it comes to the stage of Shoreline Community College Theater near Seattle.

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices. This Rodgers & Hammerstein favorite comes to St. Mark's Episcopal Church in DC.

Buy Tickets $22.50 $45

Picture Chicago in 1992. If you can't (or need a refresher), The Undeniable Sound of Right Now will take you back to that moment when Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love ruled and Moby was not too far behind. The story follows Hank, a man struggling to keep his legendary rock club alive in the midst of changing times and musical tastes. As if that wasn't hard enough, his daughter Lena brings home her new DJ boyfriend. Will Hank learn to adapt or will he crumble under the destructive power of The Next Big Thing? Prepare for some outrageous comedy and major blasts from the past when The Undeniable Sound of Right Now makes its D.C. premiere at Keegan Theatre.

The Donkey Show: A Midsummer Night's Disco, Theatrical Dance Party

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.
