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.

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.

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. 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, returns to New York City as a part of the 25th season of New York City Center's Encores! series.

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.

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. See John Logan's volcano of a play at the Theatre Artists Studio in Scottsdale.

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.

From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

Father Timothy Farley is a lover of the good things in life, comfortably ensconced as priest of a prosperous Catholic congregation. He's always preached about miracles -- now he has to perform one. Without realizing it, he's resorted to flattering his parishioners and entertaining them with sermons that skirt any disturbing issues, in order to protect his Mercedes, his trips abroad and the generous supply of fine wines that grace his table (and his desk drawer). His well-ordered world is disrupted by the arrival of Mark Dolson, an intense and idealistic young seminarian whom Father Farley reluctantly agrees to take under his wing. Watch all the fascinating and funny sparks of their conflict unfold when Mass Appeal comes to the stage of Glenview's Oil Lamp Theater.

Cruel Intentions, the awesomest of all '90s teen dramas, comes to New York in tongue-in-cheek musical form, after a pair of sold-out runs in L.A. -- at which original stars Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair bestowed their blessing upon it. Based on the famed Les Liaisons dangereuses, this titillating tale of sex, drugs and moody pop revolves around a pair of devious upper-crust New York step-siblings who wager on a girl's loss of innocence, snaring them in an ever-growing web of lies, lust and revenge. Filled with rad throwback hits like "Lovefool," "Just A Girl," "Only Happy When It Rains" and "Bittersweet Symphony" and co-starring Home Improvement mom Patricia Richardson, this intimate live musical event comes complete with cocktails for purchase at Le Poisson Rouge. So there's just one question left: "Are you in, or are you out?"

Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic follows the (non)-adventures of a wizard named Wayne, his two somewhat familiar friends and the lovably underachieving members of a particular house, who are left to sit on the sidelines as a certain star student and his pals experience all the evil-battling excitement. This "alternative narrative for the underdog" (The Wall Street Journal) gives the magically-challenged Wayne his own hilariously heroic seven-year journey, in a show The New York Times says "exudes a joyful, winking fondness for all things Harry." Muggle-born and others are invited to check out the show at its new home at New York's New World Stages.
