There's something for everybody in this Goldstar-exclusive three-ticket package to the Seattle Rep's 2017/2018 season at Bagely Wright Theatre, which gets you top-notch seats to your choice of three productions ranging from thought-provoking to toe-tapping and gut-busting! In the world premiere of Ibsen in Chicago, an unlikely ensemble of scrappy Scandinavian immigrants converge to put on a play in boomtown Chicago circa 1882. As this ragtag group of new Americans rehearse a controversial new play written by their fellow countryman Henrik Ibsen, their various enmities and misunderstandings take on vaudevillian proportions. In Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin, actor and international piano virtuoso Hershey Felder embodies the iconic Irving Berlin to tell the musical story of an immigrant boy whose patriotic music gave a country its voice. The Great Leap goes back and forth between 1971 China and 1989 San Francisco, each experiencing a cultural revolution, with basketball the common denominator. The inter-generational comedy Familiar finds a Minnesota bride wanting to observe a Zimbabwean tradition in honor of her heritage, which sets off a deep-rooted conflict with her immigrant parents. And in playwright/director Erica Schmidt's innovative adaptation of MacBeth, seven young women gather after school to re-tell Shakespeare's epic tragedy about the corrosive effects of ambition -- and find the line between fantasy and reality becoming dangerously blurred. This Goldstar package won't be available anywhere else, so grab yours now.

The reliable Jack Worthing has wooed Gwendolen under the name Ernest, while the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff has also posed as Ernest to win the heart of Cecily. When all four arrive at Jack's country home on the same weekend accompanied by the formidable Lady Bracknell, the gallant guys must grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions. With a cast of professional San Diego actors and beautiful costumes, it's the perfect accompaniment for the included English high-tea meal featuring specialty blends, salads and fruit, assorted finger sandwiches, scones, seasonal desserts and Champagne. Be sure to properly raise your pinky along with your teacup in Escondido's Grand Tea Room.

In 1844, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Society began producing original, elaborate annual shows written by and starring its members -- and while a lot has changed at Harvard since then, that yearly tradition has not. This year marks the society's 170th production: Intermission Impossible, a ridiculous World War II-era theater comedy that sees alcoholic playwright Tennessee Whiskey trying to prepare for his Broadway debut while contending with an absurd group of characters with even more absurd names, like aging actress Faye Dinaway, pageant queen Amber Wavesofgrain and hunky sailor Sal Pacific. Men play all the roles in this bawdy, old-school burlesque at Farkas Hall in Cambridge -- but women are involved in all other aspects of the production, from writing to music to producing the show. Being a part of Harvard history has never been this fun -- or funny!

In 1998, gay college student Matthew Shepard was savagely beaten, tied to a post and left to die outside the town of Laramie, Wyoming. A month after that tragedy, director Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project conducted more than 200 interviews there, and adapted it into The Laramie Project, a powerful, thought-provoking play about a community shaken to its core. The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later revisits after a full decade has passed to find a town dealing with the temptation to rewrite history in the name of moving on. This powerful epilogue explores the legacy of Matthew's murder, and includes the return of several familiar Laramie citizens, as well as first-time interviews with Shepard's killers and his mother Judy. This bold new staging from the Wandering Theatre Company at New York's Access Theatre gives you the choice of seeing the two plays together or performed separately.

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.

Whether it's 1892 or 2018, Nobel Prize-winning writer George Bernard Shaw's scathingly satirical comedies still have the uncanny power to provide pointed commentary on what's happening in the here and now. In Widowers' Houses, an idealistic young doctor is dismayed to learn that his new girlfriend happens to be the daughter of a predatory real-estate speculator, but that's just the first difficult pill he has to swallow. Shaw penned more than 60 plays, including classics like Saint Joan and Pygmalion, but this socially-aware comedy was his first to be staged. See this ever-timely production at Berkeley's Aurora Theatre Company.

Singer and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss adds even more razzle dazzle to that greatest of Broadway traditions: Chicago. Boasting sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a show biz story that packs a powerful punch, Chicago tells the tale of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who'll stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn.

A smash on Broadway (winning six Tony Awards) and on the big screen (winning six Academy Awards), this biting satire features the unforgettable songs of Kander and Ebb, including "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango" and many more hits.

Rose was written by Kennedy scholar Laurence Leamer, author of the national bestseller The Kennedy Women, and is presented at Greenhouse Theater Center in Chicago.

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.

In a Vietnamese refugee camp in Arkansas circa 1975, two bereaved Saigon natives find love in a strange new land. So goes Vietgone, a bold new romantic comedy by "geek theater" impresario Qui Nguyen, an artist famous in New York for productions packed full of martial arts, sword fights and puppetry. Based on the lives of his own parents, Vietgone is a slightly more subtle affair, but still reflects Nguyen's irreverent humor and pop-culture-obsessed aesthetic as it crisscrosses between the traumatic evacuation of Saigon and a turbulent yet passionate tale of love in the rural United States. See American Conservatory Theater's production of this wildly imaginative, "culturally savvy comedy" (The New York Times) at A.C.T Strand Theater in San Francisco.

These two rural families, living in Kentucky and West Virginia, have become synonymous with family honor, justice and revenge for the war they fought with words and weapons. Inspired both by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and factual events, Hatfield & McCoy takes place in a philosophically polarized America just as it's emerging from the Civil War. Romance and gunfire erupt when young Rose Anna McCoy and Johnse Hatfield fall in love, marry in secret and vow to reconcile their feuding families against all odds. Their tale of woe is served up with a heaping helping of original Americana tunes, connecting times past to a very familiar present. See it on the stage of The House Theatre of Chicago's Chopin Theatre.

Clowns have gotten a bad rap in the last few years, but they aren't all bad! Some are just lovable humans looking for hope -- like the main character of Cirque du Soleil: CORTEO. In the company of flying angels, a beloved entertainer imagines his own funeral procession in the form of a festive and lavish parade. They say write what you know, so as he passes from this life, the comedian imagines what he already knows and adds a little heaven to it.

The drama of the real lives of traveling performers merges with the surreal to create Cirque du Soleil's trademark visuals and a mysterious journey you can't forget.

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.
