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.

Fantasy and reality become tangled in a dark web in this smash musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb, the songwriting team that penned Chicago and Cabaret. Kiss of the Spider Woman was the winner of seven Tony Awards in 1993, including Best Musical. It's the story of two cellmates in a Latin American prison -- Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, and Molina, a gay window dresser. Molina survives his jailers' torture and humiliation by escaping to a fantasy world filled with the movies he loved as a child, conjuring a beautiful and beguiling screen enchantress named Aurora as his imaginary diva. As the relationship between Valentin and Molina becomes increasingly more complicated, so too do Molina's over-the-top fantasies, which begin encroaching upon -- and threatening to overtake -- his real life. Penned by four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, this powerful story comes to life at the Lyric Stage Company in Boston.

"Joy and fury," Florence Welch reveals, are what propelled her to pen the latest Florence + The Machine album, High as Hope. In a way, joy and fury have always been vital to Florence + The Machine's singular sound: bombastic, soaring anthems that are somehow both deeply emotional and infectiously buoyant at the same time.

Gabriel Royal descended into the New York City subway with a dollar in his pocket and a cello under his arm.

Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights. The brilliance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's new vision of American musical theater -- in all its blow-the-top-off-expectations exuberance -- is spectacularly realized in both shows. Like Hamilton, In the Heights' style is ostensibly hip-hop, but characters sing and dance to a wide variety of musical styles and moods. Energetic and infectious, the show tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood -- a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. Enjoy this high-energy production at the Mysterium Theater at The La Habra Depot Playhouse.

His comments are informal, informative and anything but dry and academic." See him live in concert at American University's Katzen Arts Center in Washington, D.C.

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.
