Turn-of-the-20th-century New York -- no other time and place better captures the promise of the American Dream. The streets teemed with people from all walks of life. From the extremely wealthy to greatly impoverished, they came in search of something more. And it was all set to an infectious, new kind of music pouring from the dance halls: ragtime. Bringing this roiling melting pot to life, the Tony-winning musical Ragtime (based on E.L. Doctorow's acclaimed novel) follows three ethnically diverse characters -- a white upper-class mother, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring African-American musician -- whose fates become unexpectedly intertwined. Along the way, they rub shoulders with everyone from Harry Houdini to Henry Ford. This Berkeley Playhouse production will transport you back in time, while shining light on our own times, with this eminently American story.

A great deal of American history has attempted to take the breaths away from African Americans through rape, lynching, Jim Crow laws, KKK terror, injustice and police brutality. Breathe: the Musical is the story of the Jones family, a post-slavery family of sharecroppers in the early to mid 1900's, as they seek refuge from America's violent racial climate. Supremacy has begot rape, false allegations, lynch threats, and eventually death to the family. With the help of five timeless midwives, the ghosts of historic lynching victims and a vibrant close-knit community, they navigate through the everyday trials of the era to reformation and anti-lynch laws. The production executes this message through original dialogue, choreo-poems, negro spirituals, and many genres of dance and music. See Breathe: the Musical this March at THEARC Theater.

Written in 1882, An Enemy of the People takes aim at a number of issues that were prevalent in Norway at the time: political corruption and the silencing of whistleblowers, the destructive impact of industry on the environment, and the role ethics plays in the media and what they report. Clearly these subjects are not only still relevant today, but remarkably topical once again. The play follows Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a notable and respected doctor in his town, as he discovers that the local water supply and the public baths -- a source of great pride and income for the town -- have become contaminated by local industry and are now poisonous. He struggles with his brother, the town's mayor and one of the owners of the baths, in trying to get his findings published in the town's newspaper. A play, at its heart, about personal responsibility and the rights and roles of whistleblowers, An Enemy of the People could be ripped from today's headlines. See it at The Albert's Goodman Theatre in Chicago.

The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, A Raisin in the Sun is a masterpiece that The New York Times credits with changing American theater forever. First produced in 1959 and adapted two years later into a now-classic film starring Sidney Poitier, A Raisin in the Sun is as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now Harlem Repertory Theatre presents the limited return of this incredible story to their stage -- a story that follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a "white" neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers' many dreams. Three generations each yearn for different versions of a better life -- whether it's a business, or a spouse, or the right to live with long-denied dignity.
For every mega-success like the iPhone, VCR and Ford Mustang, there's a couple of Apple Newtons, Betamaxes and Edsels that crashed and burned before them -- and The Museum of Failure celebrates these marketing missteps in all their glory. Now housed in Hollywood with an expanded collection, this primo collection of product blunders, curated by a Swedish innovation researcher, brings the best worst ideas together in an Instagram-friendly collection at Hollywood & Highland. You'll see artifacts spanning from the 17th century right up to the present, including a Trump-based board game, Casio's tiny color TV, New Coke and plenty more. No word on whether Ishtar is included in this Hollywood edition, however.

Issues of life and death, financial ruin, love and murder all converge as people come and go through the lobby of the Grand Hotel. 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, Grand Hotel The Musical is set at the tail-end of the Roaring '20s.

If you're a fan of alt comedy from the '90s, 2000s and beyond, chances are you're already a fan of Brian Posehn and don't even know it. The large, bearded comedian first gained a national audience as a slightly less large, clean-shaven writer and performer on HBO's cult favorite Mr. Show, which led to appearances in hit sitcoms like Seinfeld, NewsRadio, Friends and Just Shoot Me. Known for his self-deprecating sense of humor and lifelong love of comic books and heavy metal, Posehn joined Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Maria Bamford on the Comedians of Comedy tour, and starred in the documentary and Comedy Central series of the same name. Posehn's recent highlights include a hilarious role as gay neighbor Brian in The Sarah Silverman Program, three stand-up specials including 2013's The Fartist and a recurring role on New Girl. See him perform at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco.

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.

Red took Broadway by storm in 2010 with its portrait of painter Mark Rothko's ambition and vulnerability. The winner of that year's Tony Award for Best Play, this daring drama picks up with Rothko in the early 1960s, after he has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art -- a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant.

Christopher Maltman and Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara star in this story of two randy teenagers whose bet to seduce each other's fiancée goes wildly awry.

Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko is at the peak of his career and has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his new assistant, Ken, in his huge studio on the Bowery. He painstakingly trains and admonishes the young art student in his philosophy of painting and art. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko finally visits the completed restaurant, and he faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his ultimate betrayal and undoing. RED erupts with power, passion and intellect, embracing a fierce love for the meaning and purpose of art. It demands that we think and feel, aspiring to something beyond ourselves and beyond now -- that tiny bit of hope, that "red" that makes us human.

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.
Singer Maria Alejandra Rodriguez hails from Venezuela, but the music she sings has an international influence that features tinges of bossa nova, cha cha cha, boleros, Latin jazz and other modern arrangements for a style all its own. Her voice stands out for its beauty, tuning and cool touch with a deep feeling. In this show at Club Bonafide in New York City, this seductive South American songstress presents selections from her latest album, Aqui y alla, on which she arranged, composed and produced most of the tracks.

Lee Blessing's Pulitzer- and Tony Award-nominated drama A Walk in the Woods comes to Hollywood's Actors Co-op Theatres to reflect on a historical event that seems more timely than ever. Two superpower arms negotiators -- one a clever, cynical Russian and the other an idealistic young American -- meet for informal walks in the woods outside Geneva after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. This 1988 play was inspired by the true story of two passionate men who had the courage to forge a nuclear weapons agreement without the support of their governments. Filled with unexpected humor and extraordinary humanity, it's an absorbing, revealing and brilliant debate on the eternal hope and relentless futility of high-stakes politics.

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series Drunk History, the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the series has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally makes its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Atlanta's Village Theatre.
